What Is It to Explore Australia?

Whether you live in Australia or you are just visiting, there is a lot you need to know about exploring Australia. This is a country equal in landmass to the United States and is one of the most ecologically diverse and unique countries in the world, with outback, reef, and rainforests to provide the adventure of a lifetime.

Those who are looking for the action and excitement of outdoor activities can choose from caving, canyoning, rock climbing, parasailing, abseiling, or skiing. You can ride a camel through the red sands of Alice Springs, bushwalk through the rainforests of Tasmania, or go kayaking through Katherine Gorge. If quiet-paced outdoor activities are more your style, you can choose from golf at the Melbourne Sandbelt in Victoria, or go deep-sea fishing in the Gulf of St. Vincent.

The Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney offer the opportunity to closely examine Australia’s native flora and even some fauna and learn more about conservation efforts on this stunningly beautiful continent. Australia’s often one-of-a-kind wildlife can be studied closely on Kangaroo Island, where fairy penguins, fur seals, and of course kangaroos abound.

If you happen to be looking for R&R, rest and relaxation, or romance, there is horseback riding, either along the vast coastlines or through the dense, lush rainforests. Australia is not only eco-diverse, but it is also culturally diverse, with retail therapy and shopping excursions available in cities like Sydney or Brisbane, Adelaide, and onto Melbourne. Visit the Sydney Opera House, galleries, or theatres to see the artistic side of Australia.

Sightseeing is one of the best ways to explore Australia. When you have finished your day’s excursions, you can go back and recuperate from your adventure in one of Australia’s many apartments for rent, hotels, bed, and breakfasts, or for those determined to enjoy an earthier experience, in campervans or swags. There is so much to explore in Australia, from Uluru to the Great Barrier Reef. Isn’t it time you planned your next holiday here?
