Must do Adventure activities in Australia
Diving/Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef
This World Heritage-listed treasure in the Australian state of Queensland is one of Australia's top tourist attractions and a bucket-list excursion for travellers, with over 2,900 distinct reefs.
Swimming off the reef's edge is like flying through an underwater forest. Colourful hard and soft corals, sparkling tropical fish, gigantic clams, whales, shark schools, giant cod, and even shipwrecks can all be seen while diving or snorkelling.
A full-day snorkelling and diving trip, complete with all equipment and training, a barbeque lunch, and an optional sightseeing helicopter flight over the reef are some types of packages you receive at this spot.
Because the Great Barrier Reef has experienced extraordinary bleaching in recent years, this is an outdoor excursion you should take as soon as possible.
Scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge
The dazzling harbour wriggles and coils down the coast far below, salty sea air stings your skin, and you can actually sense the splendour of this magnificent city, as if you're standing atop the planet.
A pre-climb prep briefing, all the safety gear, a photo on the 134-metre-high top, and interesting stories about the bridge's history are all included in guided ascents of the bridge.
You can choose among day climbs, dawn, twilight, and night climbs to get a new perspective of this glamorous coastal city.
Jet Boat through the Horizontal Falls
Horizontal Falls, located deep within the mountainous Kimberley region, offers an adrenaline-pumping seaplane and jet boat excursion. Tours usually begin with a low-level seaplane ride over the Buccaneer Archipelago's magnificent scenery, which includes red cliffs along the coast and 800 islands dotting the brilliant blue water.
You board a jet boat and skid over the smooth waters past the boiling horizontal falls, which are actually enormous tides of up to 11 metres that pour through two tight gorges, after a water landing on quiet Talbot Bay and a great meal.
After the cruise, the trip normally includes shark dives in the safety of a shark-proof (and saltwater croc-proof) cage, if you're seeking for an even more intense adventure in this remote part of Australia. Overnight houseboat stays are also offered.
Kayaking at Katherine Gorge
The Katherine River in Nitmiluk National Park flows through a succession of steep-walled red granite gorges, providing the ideal outback kayaking adventure. As you paddle through pandanus-fringed pools, past paperbark woods, and over gentle rapids, cliffs climb up to 100 metres on either side of the river. Kayaking the river allows you to see the more scenic gorges deep in the park beyond the first several gorges, which can be congested with tourists.
Kayaking the gorge during the dry season, from May to November, is the safest option, as the river can quickly increase during the rainy season.
Picnics on the sandy riverbed among tranquil waterfalls and stories about the nature, history, and sacred sites of the area are common features of organised trips, some of which are led by aboriginal guides. The opportunity to sleep under the stars is available on multi-day expeditions. Renting a kayak or canoe and going on a self-guided Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) Canoe Adventure is also an option. A Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge cruise is another option if you'd prefer to skip the paddling and just sit back and relax.
Drive the Gibb River Road
The Gibb River Road is a classic 4WD adventure in Australia. This 660-kilometer dirt highway bumps and grinds through red rock canyons, steep mountains, and rock pools fed by multi-tiered cascades deep in the isolated Kimberley region.
You can either drive the route yourself (four-wheel-drive cars are required) or join a multi-day guided tour.
Hiking in the woods, swimming in the chilly waters of steep-walled gorges, fishing for barramundi, sunset safaris, and soothing soaks in natural hot springs are all highlights.
Along the trip, visit Windjana Gorge National Park, view freshwater crocodiles, and take a scenic flight over Mitchell Falls or the Bungle Bungles' oddly carved rock formations. Note that the route is regularly closed due to flooding from November to March.
Rappeling in the Blue Mountains
It's an incredible experience to slide down the sheer face of a limestone cliff into the misty blue haze of a World Heritage natural region. The famed Three Sisters rock pinnacles, plunging valleys, waterfalls, and eucalyptus woods spanning as far as the eye can see are all part of the Blue Mountains National Park, which is just 50 kilometres from Sydney.
Abseiling or rappelling down the limestone cliffs and waterfalls is a thrilling way to explore this natural wonder. There are also canyoning, rock climbing, and mountain bike tours available. The full-day Blue Mountains Empress Canyon and Abseiling Experience includes instruction, safety briefings, and all necessary equipment, as well as abseiling and canyoning. Because the weather might change fast, bring a waterproof camera and layers of clothing.
Best time to visit Australia for adventure tour package
If you want to embark on an outback adventure in Australia, the colder months of May to August are the best time to go. The warmer months of October to March are perfect for outdoor pursuits on Tasmania's island state, which has a colder climate than the mainland. The snowfields of New South Wales and Victoria are normally available from June to early September if you packed your skis.
Because the summer months in Australia's Red Centre may be uncomfortably hot, hikes in sites like Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park are best done from April to September.
In Tasmania, on the other hand, hiking is more popular during the summer months, though walkers should be prepared for all seasons (including snow) all year. Hiking in Queensland and New South Wales' lush Gondwana Rainforests is typically more comfortable in the drier winter months (especially June to October), whereas the best time to travel Western Australia's famed Cape to Cape Track is in the spring (especially September and October, when wildflowers are in bloom) and autumn (March to May).
If you're learning to surf, the summer months in Australia — particularly in Victoria and southern Western Australia — are ideal for spending hours in the water. During the Australian winter months, offshore winds mixed with more continuous swells provide the finest conditions across the country, however there are occasional exceptions.
For Wildlife Sight-seeing:
The ideal months to go whale watching are August and September, when the humpback whales are most active. If you've always wanted to witness an orca in action, go to Bremer Bay in Western Australia between January and April.
It's more about the time of day than the season when it comes to seeing land-based species. In the spring (September to November), baby animals of all types flourish across the country.
