However, we’ve put together 12 places and activities that you should pencil in to your bucket list right now, as they’re must sees before you die! Ready? Here we go!
1. Get Back to Nature at Kakadu
This place has the power to excite all of your sense at once. Walk, drive, swim, or simply watch the rare and amazing wildlife.
2. Jump Into the Great Barrier Reef
Everybody knows of the Great Barrier Reef, so of course it had to be on the list. Go snorkelling or scuba diving to really enjoy the magic it has to offer.
3. Visit Ayers Rock (Uluru)
This rock is so much more than just a big stone. You can literally sense the history and magic as you get closer!
4. Climb the Coathanger
The coathanger, otherwise known as the Sydney harbour bridge, is a must do in Sydney. You wouldn’t go to New York without going to the empire state building, would you?
5. Swim With Whale Sharks
Ningaloo is a magical reef, just waiting for you to come and explore. You’ll find over 500 species of fish!
6. Go to the Worlds Oldest Living Museum
These forests have been around for 110 million years ancient! Visit the world’s oldest living museum to be inspired by it’s beauty.
7. Visit Sydney Opera House
Again, Sydney Opera house is a must when in the country.
8. Take a Peek at Cradle Mountain
This is one of the most recognisable peaks in Australia, although it isn’t the largest.
9. See the Sunset Over the Indian Ocean
Go to shark bay in WA and stand on the steepest point, but better yet; do it at sunset! That would make you the last human on the continent (that day) to watch the sunset. Wow!
10. Paddle in the Murray River
One of the largest and most important rivers in the world, a paddle in the Murray river is a must.
11. See the Oldest Works of Art in The World
The rock site in WA on the Burrup Peninsula is one of the largest, allowing you to see art made thousands of years ago.
12. See the Parade of the Penguins
These penguins are extra cute, as they’re only about 33cm tall (and even can be referred to as fairy penguins). Watch them pop out of the ocean from Coffs Harbour for an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
If you plan on doing all of these things in one trip, you’ll probably have to pay a lot of money for your airport parking in Melbourne. However, we thoroughly recommend these place and activities, so take a walk on the wild side and start exploring right now!
