Australia is known as the “Land Down Under,” and it’s well-deserved. This beautiful country has some of the most diverse landscapes on Earth: from lush rainforests to arid deserts, Australia has it all.
From swimming with sea turtles in the Great Barrier Reef to kayaking through mangrove forests, you and your escorts can take plenty of outdoor adventures in Australia.
Here are some of the most popular:
Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
Notably the largest coral reef in the world, it stretches more than 2,300 kilometres (1,400 miles), making it one of Earth’s most extensive natural structures.
The Great Barrier Reef is made up of thousands of individual reefs that each contain their own unique ecosystem, from giant clams to small fish and everything in between. If you’re looking for an adventure that will take you underwater as well as above ground, this spot will give you plenty to explore.
Blue Mountains, New South Wales
This National Park is popular for bushwalking, rock climbing and other outdoor activities. If you want to see wildflowers in bloom or animals like koalas and kangaroos roaming around in their natural habitat, this is the place for you. The area covers approximately a million hectares (2 million acres).
The Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation
This place is a World Heritage Site, one of only two in Queensland. It’s home to an abundance of plants and animals that you won’t find anywhere else on Earth. You can explore this natural wonderland at your leisure, with places ideal for hiking, swimming and snorkelling.
If you’re looking for someplace a little more accessible than Cape Tribulation or Mossman Gorge, both of which require some serious hiking, try walking through the rainforest near Port Douglas instead.
The Cape Tribulation Road ends at Four Mile Beach, where there are several refreshments stops. Plenty more trails are waiting if you’re feeling adventurous enough to continue down towards Port Douglas.
Kakadu National Park, New South Wales
The park was established in 1976 and is home to many types of wildlife, including crocodiles, kangaroos and dingos. Kakadu offers visitors many opportunities for outdoor adventures, such as hiking trails that will take you through rainforests, wetlands or dry plains. Boat tours are also available if you want to see some of the more remote areas of Kakadu National Park by water.
The Kimberley Region Of Western Australia
If you’re looking for an adventure, the Kimberley region of Western Australia is the place to go. It’s one of Australia’s most remote areas, boasting some of the country’s most unique wildlife.
It is home to many unique species of plants and animals, including giant trees that have lived hundreds of years and has plenty of hiking opportunities along its rugged coastline. You’ll also find several natural wonders like gorges, waterfalls and beaches here.
Outdoor activities are a great way to experience Australia’s natural beauty. The experience can also be relaxing and enjoyable, allowing you to enjoy nature while getting some exercise at the same time. You can go hiking in the mountains or take an overnight camping trip with your family, friends, and escorts.
