Most Australians first feel that it’s fantastic, seriously huge! Australia is massive! Australia covers just as much with spectacular activities as habitats, from the massive outback of the Red Center and the Great Barrier Reef in the East Coast to the amazing rock formations in the North. In reality, no matter where you go to Australia, you can find something to do. However, we advise you to start in Australia with the best stuff.
1. TOP UP YOUR SUNTAN
Australians are famous for their sun-loving outdoor lifestyle. You have plenty of coastal areas to play, almost 37,000 kilometers yes because you are the world’s largest island. So it’s no surprise to discover the magical beach where the golden sand kisses turquoise water while on an Australia tour. There’s little sandy heaven waiting for you, from the famous Bondi Beach in Sydney to the long and tearful expanse of the epic Broome Cable Beach or the chill-pitched and laid-back Queensland’s Burleigh heads Beach.
2. GO ON AN EPIC ROAD TRIP
The wide-open spaces in Australia have been adapted to the car. So take a break and hit the street — Austrian style. Go walkabout to see real Australia, ranging from Victoria’s glorious Great Ocean Road to the epic crossing Nullarbor Plain or the Alice Springs to Uluru and to the King’s Canyon. Along the way, you can see the twelve Apostles, a set of calcareous pads on the coast of Victoria, wild camels, emus, kangaroos on the road to Darwin, right whales in Great Australian Bight waters.
3. EXPERIENCE FINE DINING
Australia has a prosperous gourmet restaurant scene. New ingredients, globally renowned chefs, remarkable architecture, and adventurous design make a restaurant seriously indulgent. Regardless of your itinerary, take a while to sample Australia’s best cuisine.

4. GO SCUBA DIVING
Whatever part of this vast continent you want to explore, when you go scuba diving or snorkeling in Australia you will experience unparalleled biodiversity. You can find here manta cleaners on Stradbroke Island; spot tiny nudibranchs off Heron Island; see magnificent whale sharks cruising off Ningaloo Reef; go sharks to cage twilight, and wreck dives off Mooloolooba with sea lions at Port Lincoln. And no matter how experienced a diver you might be, you didn’t really dive in the sparkling clear waters of the Grand Barrier Reef until you plunged your fins.
5. VISIT A WINERY OR TWO
The brilliant new world wines of Australia have won admirers across the world for decades. Australia’s viticultural history dates back to the late 1700s when the very first vineyards arrived in Europe. Take a wine-producing tour and go to the cellar door to discover the heavenly reds, the crisp cold delights of the Canberra Valley, or the premium whites of the Margaret River. You won’t miss an opportunity to visit a winery, have a look, and increase your winegrowing experience as one of the best things to do in Australia.
6. LEARN TO SURF
Where better than sunny Australia to learn the art of driving waves? You want to add surfing to your bucket list when you inquire about how to do it in Australia.

However, whatever happens, you’re going to have plenty of fun and even get a wave or two.
7. VISIT THE OUTBACK
There’s nothing Australian other than the outback. The Australian outback is a magically beautiful place. It seems that its wide-open spaces last forever. The outback is basically Australian, ranging from astonishing 4WD experiences to rough mountain areas, stunning ramparts, vast cattle resorts, and the world’s lengthiest barrel-straight train.
