Australia is one of the countries that has seemingly endless number of delights for adventurous minds. From an amazing coastline and breathtaking beaches to rainforests and camping safaris – everybody has an opportunity to pick and choose for themselves. Kite surfing, zip-lining, snorkeling, sky diving, followed by various types of exercises suitable to be done on the beach – these are just among some of the most popular outdoor activities in AU. Real athletes as well as people who like extreme sports and spending active holidays outside, can enjoy activities we are about to mention below.
Beach & Sea Adventures
Surfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, diving with sharks or swimming with dolphins – you name it, it’s all there waiting for you. There are surf camps available for beginners, where you’ll learn all you need to know, from types of boards to surfing etiquette. Watching the dolphins jump out of the water right in front of you is another thing, though. If you’re on a lucky tour, you’ll see many of them elegantly swimming near you while communicating with each other. The Great Barrier Reef is yet another type of a sea adventure. If you pick to visit the Green Island, you won’t believe how amazing it could be walking under the sea just wearing the Seawalker helmet that gives you 270 degrees perspective. Incredible, admit it! And there’s more.
Daily Activities for Fitness Fans
Apart from going surfing and spending time on foot exploring around, there are also excellent places for jogging, cycling, weight lifting and doing group yoga and tai chi outdoors. Fitness fans can really spend some quality time outside, choosing the activities that suit them best. Having necessary and good quality equipment and wearing suitable clothing is also of great importance. Don’t forget the helmets and ankle/leg bands if you’re going on those brilliant longer cycling routes (such as Great Ocean Road for instance). And if you prefer having weight lifting training outside, you need to equip yourself with the good quality weight lifting belt for supporting and protecting your back.
Is the Sky Limit?
Australia is a place where adventurous go-getters don’t have a day’s peace. Walking under the sea can be followed by a long-distance cycling tour and finished with the crazy tandem sky diving experience. Jumping out of a plane is both exhilarating and scary, but the feeling of relief and satisfaction accompanied with the adrenalin rush is unforgettable and certainly not regrettable. You may choose among 15 amazing locations to do your freefall, depending on the type of panorama you prefer.
Rainforest Habitat Wildlife
Daintree Rainforest is a wonderful place for all nature lovers to go on a full day tour and visit the World Heritage-listed biodiversity of Daintree National Park. A day for all explorers may include a guided walk through the rainforest, having lunch and then cruising down the Daintree River.
Inside the Country
Central Australia, the heart and soul of this country, also known as the Red Centre, is famous for Uluru, the Ayers Rock, a huge color changing monolith, Kings Canyon, Watarrka National Park and the Aboriginal art near the Tanami Track. These places attract all those who are interested in exploring the ancient stories of this country and the native wildlife. You can take the camel trek and visit the Simpson Desert while making plans for the three-days camping safari in the Kings Canyon – because that’s something you can’t miss once you are inside the Red Centre.
Ideal for explorers, it seems that adventures in Australia never cease. Once you get a chance to visit this country, grab it and don’t miss a thing. These kinds of outdoor adventures are dreams coming true.
