Australia is a gigantic country with so many things to see and experiences to try out on land and at sea, which can make it tough for the average traveller to narrow down their itinerary and ensure that they pack in as much of the good stuff as possible.
If you’re the adventurous type, let us help you out by showing you some of the most unforgettable adventures you can have in Australia:
Exploring the Great Barrier Reef
One of the Natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef is an amazing attraction. So large it can be seen from space, you could easily spend your whole holiday exploring the reef, checking out the tropical fish, befriending any dolphins you come across and learning how to dive, but then you wouldn’t get to experience these other fine adventures, right?
Camp on Cockatoo Island

Cockatoo Island is located slap bang in the middle of Sydney Harbour, so it’s pretty easy to get to. Actually, it was the place where convicts would be placed in the past at one point, and later it was used as a place to repair ships damaged in World war II. Its history, which is very evident on the island, gives it a unique and slightly eerie atmosphere, which is perfect for telling tales around the campfire, and the views out around Sydney Harbour are pretty special too. If you do plan to camp, the Outdoor Supacentre is the best place to get yourself kitted out in Australia, and it’s a good idea to get your camping equipment over there. Why? Because the baggage charges could be quite high unless you’re going right back to basics.
Skydive Over Byron Bay
Byron Bay in New South Wales is arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. It is also one of the best places to surf, watch whales and snorkel, which you should do off Julian Rocks for the best experience, so camping there with Skydive.com makes a huge amount of sense. The exhilaration you feel will be like nothing else you’ve ever experienced!
White Water Rafting Along Franklin River
If you’re into your watersports and you want to try something that will give you a challenge and get your adrenaline pumping, you can’t beat a white water rafting adventure down the challenging Franklin River. Strap yourself in – it’ll be a bumpy ride.
Explore Nature at Karijini National Park

Karijini National Park is one of the most incredible natural spaces on the planet – and Australia is home to a lot of them- what makes it so special is the fact that you get to visit a lot of remote stretched like Hancock Gorge (providing you have a guide) and the fact that you can swim, abseil and even sail over a waterfall when you’re done watching the wildlife do what they do in a totally natural environment.
Try out any of these unforgettable Australian adventures, and you won’t be disappointed – they will make your holiday even more special.
