Given its distance and expensive costs, visiting Australia can be a point that languishes on our bucket lists for years. However, whether you’re 20, 40, or anywhere in between or above, Australia remains a fantastic place to visit. Here are some ideas for doing Australia whichever age category you fall into.
Sydney’s Bondi Beach is an incredible destination for a younger traveler in their 20’s or 30’s. It is so much more than just a stunning beach. It also boasts bustling shopping, watersports activities and buzzing nightlife. There are lots of places to camp and park up your motorhome in the local area too, plus it’s close proximity to Sydney is handy too.
The 12 Apostles
If you’re no longer interesting in huge crowds and thumping music, Australia has more than enough other beaches to keep you happy. How about visiting the 12 Apostles along the Great Ocean Road? There is a tourist centre where you can pick up some information before setting off on a coastline walk.
The Tours and Trips
Dirt biking in Cape York
If you’re visiting Cape York with friends, motorbiking through this remote area of Australia could be a great idea. It is one the biggest areas of wilderness left in Australia. You can spend a few days traveling in a group on motorbikes, camping along the way. The scenery is stunning and it’s way to more exciting to see it from a bike than a car or van.
A Wine Trail
When it comes to Australian wine, all the natives know that Barossa Valley is home to the best stuff. So good, in fact, that it’s award-winning! A Barossa Valley Wine Tour, for example, incorporates a visit to multiple cellar doors and, of course, lots of tasting along the way.
Young, fit and healthy people shouldn’t make a trip to Australia without at least some watersports activities! Most of Oz’s big cities are on the coast, meaning there is water aplenty! Thrillseekers can go for surfing or hire a speedboat. Or, if you’re looking for something a little calmer, how about paddling or canoeing?
Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House might be stunning from the outside, but did you know it is also incredible on the inside. While many visitors focus on the outer architecture, consider treating yourself to a show there. There are over 450 performances here each year! It’s not just opera either! There are also circus shows, ballets and more.
Camping is undoubtedly the cheapest accommodation option in Australia. However, if you have a bit more in your budget, how about hiring a motorhome? You could spend a few weeks travelling down the East Coast, stopping off wherever you fancy along the way.
Food is pretty expensive in Australia. This is why renting a villa, as opposed to a hotel, might be a wise decision. Unlike hotels, villas come with kitchens. This means that you can save money by making food at home. You’ll also have a fridge to keep your wine cool.
