Posted on Aug 4 2016 - 5:59pm by Andre Smith

Australia is one of the most sought after vacation destinations of all time. This place offers so many different types of activities for visitors to explore, it’s no wonder why some of its most popular activities show up on the countless bucket list.

Scuba Diving in the Great Barrier Reef

There are many destinations on this great planet that offer great scuba diving opportunities, but none quite like the Great Barrier Reef. This adventure is the most popular dream of travellers who love to scuba dive. You have not lived the great life of a scuba diver until you have experienced the reef’s ecosystem up close and personal. This is the largest reef on the planet and it must be experienced at least once in every avid scuba divers lifetime.


Cage Diving with Great White Sharks

There are many ways to get your adrenaline pumping, but there is nothing that will get it pumping nearly as fast as cage diving with great white sharks will. Imagine being trapped in a large shark cage while experiencing the great white shark up close. This adventure brings you right into the lair of a great white shark, giving you a unique glimpse at how they live. This is no shark movie. This is reality and it is exciting, scary, and exhilarating all at the same time. Spend an entire day safely tucked in a shark proof cage while being close enough to touch these amazing creatures. There are not too many people who can say they have that experience.


Kakadu National Park

Do you love the great outdoors? The Kakadu National Park is the largest national park in Australia and the home of Australian Aborigines. This special park is a great way to unplug from the world and get back to nature. Surrounded by all things beautiful, you will feel re-energized and awe inspired by the miracle that is nature.


Fraser Islan

Nothing says vacation like a tropical island. Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. Take a ferry ride from Queensland and get ready to explore the wonders of the island. This island has adventures at every turn. You can see the rainforest first hand by hiking through it. For the water lover in you, go out and swim in the crystal clear freshwater lakes. You can meet the habitat and go whale watching or visit the wildlife native to the island in the wild. If you are more of an adrenaline seeker, you can enjoy a day of 4 wheeling along the sand cliffs.


Crocodile Diving

Not to be outdone by the great white shark adventure, the Crocosaurus Cove diving with crocodile experience is to be remembered. Unlike the great white shark cage dive, which gives you an entire day of exploration, the crocodile dive will provide you a 15-minute stay in the “Cage of Death”. You will be close enough to touch the 5m plus crocodile if you could reach through glass. As a special treat, just to make you feel a little more excitement while in the cage, a crocodile handler will feed the crocodile while you are in the cage. This will give you a better view of the crocodile’s natural movements. How many people can say they have gotten close enough to a crocodile bigger than their imagination will allow them to believe exist? These giant crocs are legendary. This is definitely a must see attraction.


Australia has been a long sought after place to visit and explore. The people are warm and welcome, the weather is fabulous, and there is plenty to do to keep you and your family occupied building memories for as long as your vacation will allow. No matter what type of experience you are seeking, there is something for everyone. The best way to explore this amazing destination is to stretch your imagination and try a little bit of everything. No matter what, you will have an amazing time visiting Australia.
