Want an experience to remember? Where better to have life-changing adventures than in Australia? Australia has a lot to offer travellers, including some super-charged activities that everyone should have at the top of their bucket list. Want to add a bit of excitement to your travels? Why not give one of these adrenaline-filled experience a try during your travels Down Under.
Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge
While this may not be considered much of an adrenaline-filled experience for some, if you’ve got the slightest fear of heights your knees might just wobble at the thought of climbing 440ft in the air. It’s an activity worth doing, as you’ll get access to unrivalled 360-degree views of Sydney from the top. It’s also a great group activity if you’re travelling with some friends. Try and choose a day when the sky is clear to ensure you get the best view of stunning Sydney and the surrounding area.
White water rafting in Cairns
A visit to Northern Australia calls for a white water rafting trip. It’s one of the most popular activities in Cairns, with some great experiences to enjoy as you battle the Tully River. It’s not a sport for the faint-hearted, but white water rafting tours make for an excellent activity to try during your stay, one which you won’t forget. There are different tours available to suit all abilities, so if you enjoy your first rafting experience, then you should definitely consider some of the more advanced courses to try next.
Uluru (also known as Ayer’s Rock) is one of Australia’s most well-known sights, and where better to experience it in all its glory than the air? There are plenty of amazing spots to enjoy skydiving in Australia, but Uluru is certainly one of the best. Soaring 12,500ft in the air, it’s a thrill-a-minute experience that you will never forget. Alternatively, you could always climb Uluru – although you must show respect and follow certain rules while doing so. The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board have recently voted to ban climbing Uluru, so you’ll only have until 2019 to complete this adventure on foot.
Shark cage diving in South Australia
There’s only one place you can get up close to great white sharks in Australia – Port Lincoln, a beautiful part of southern Australia. There are some incredible things to do in South Australia, and this is certainly one of them. Book a tour to enjoy this fantastic thrill that will put you right next to one of the world’s most feared and deadliest creatures. Observe great white sharks in their natural habitat and push your fears to the limit. It’s probably not the best idea to watch Jaws beforehand…
