Must-Do Activities in Australia

If you are planning to go to Australia, it is impossible not to go to Sydney. It is the largest city in the country and the one with the most activities, things to do and see, great beaches and breath-taking casinos. After a long day at work, Australians like to relax at the bar with a cocktail while playing at the casino online. But Australia isn't just about Sydney, there are plenty of other things to do in the country. Explore the islands in a private yacht, take a gastronomic road trip around Tasmania, dive with white sharks in Port Lincoln, these experiences will seduce you.

Australia - New Zealand Flags

Explore the Islands by Private Yacht

The Whitsunday Islands offer some of the most beautiful boat trips in the world, with generally perfect winds, calm seas, stunning scenery, and 74 islands to stop on (of which 69 are uninhabited). It's called bareboating: renting a boat, filling it with provisions and friends, and sailing until sunset. Even if you have no experience of navigation, specialized companies will offer you a yacht and a safety briefing, then let you sail, with the obligation to respond to their radio appointment twice a day to say where you are. and where you are going. Depart from the coastal town of Airlie Beach or have your boat delivered to Hayman or Hamilton Island.

Take a Gastronomic Road Trip Around Tasmania

Start with a breakfast of fresh donuts and bagels at the Farm Gate Market in Hobart, then spend a few days feasting in Tasmania. There is a lot of local produce to taste, rarely with more than an hour's drive between foodie towns and shops. Eat apples at Willie Smith's Apple Shed, a cider house turned museum in the Huon Valley; freshly peeled Tassie oysters at Bangor Wine & Oyster Shed in Port Arthur; Belgian-style chocolates at the House of Anvers near Latrobe. Tasmania is famous for its cool climate wines and the Tamar Valley, which stretches north of Launceston, is Tasmania's premier wine region. Don't miss Pinot Noir, Tasmania's signature grape, from the oldest vineyard in the state in Providence.

Watch the Fireworks Over Sydney Bay

One of the first places in the world to welcome the New Year, Sydney Bay presents a breath-taking spectacle. The 9 p.m. and midnight fireworks on New Year's Eve are not to be missed, with fireworks shot from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Opera House, light shows, and other fireworks shot harbour barges. There are vantage points for all budgets. Spread a picnic blanket in one of the many parks on Sydney's waterfront, take a ferry or boat cruise to watch from the water, book a waterfront hotel room or attend one of the many paid events like Fort Denison and Shark Island Parties or Family Parties at Sydney Taronga Zoo and Darling Harbour.

Dive with White Sharks in Port Lincoln

Being underwater with a great white shark is an adventure to tell your friends about. Calypso Star Charters and Adventure Bay Charters organize day trips to see great white sharks on Neptune Island, 70 kilometres off Port Lincoln. No diving experience is necessary. If you are looking for something as memorable but without the cage, you can also swim in the open ocean with the giant yet gentle whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, between March and August.
