Two Adventure Tour Destinations in Australia You Wouldn’t Want to Miss



The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Great Wonders of the world, stretching more than 2000 km ​along the north eastern coast of Australia. This marine wonderland is so special it’s listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

As the biggest living structure in the world, the Great Barrier Reef can be enjoyed in a number of ways:    snorkeling, scuba diving, tour​ing​ via Seaplane, helicopter or even ​inside a ​small ​submarine. Having a wonderful experience ​that has you grinning from ear to ear is just part of experience and the adventures that ​are part of this place. Diving​​ below the waves, or just snorkeling at water level,​ you’ll experience a whole new underwater world that is so impressive that it will overwhelm your senses. Millions of different life forms in different habitats will leave you not just educated but in awe. Diverse mollusks and fish inhabit this superbly coloured coral reef.

There are many wonderful ways to launch an adventure on the Great Barrier Reef. It is truly a gift of Mother Nature and one that just should not be missed.​

The Kimberley is Australia’s last frontier.   It is located at the north western part of Australia and one of the earliest places to be settled ​on this continent. The region was named after the 1st Earl of Kimberley, John Wodehouse who served as Secretary of State for the Colonies in the late 1800’s. The Kimberly is home to the most spectacular countryside and rugged lands ​you can ever dream to see. This vast land houses breathtaking beaches, gorges and waterfalls. You will also see unbelievable mountain rock formations ​and ​vast flat lands which are home to thousands of wild animals.

5 million visitors enjoy the Australia’s vast outback every year.  The Kimberley is a haven for outdoor adventures as travellers enjoy it with scenic flights, hiking or trekking and even 4×4 guided tours. For the not so “outdoorsy”, it is good to know that the region is inhabited by some extremely hospitable.

The​ Kimberley can certainly be enjoyed by everybody; whether you want to go camping and spend your holiday under the sky, sun and stars, or relax ​i​n luxurious hotel accommodation. This place is​ another​ destination that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
