Summers in Australia – Top Things to Do to Make the Most of the Season!

Summers in Australia bring along a myriad of festivities. Whether you are a local resident or a foreign national, a solo traveller or are accompanied by friends or family, the land of kangaroos has a lot to offer. Go camping, hiking, explore the downtown area, surf, bask on the beach, dive and traverse the underwater reefs, go parasailing, paragliding, stroll around the ancient ruins or aimlessly wander away in the city – Australia never ceases to amaze with its numerous exciting leisure activities to indulge in.

Now that the summers have arrived and the season’s festivities are taking their toll, here’s your guide to making sure that you make the most of your time and do not miss out on anything happening this year.

  • Deep Sea Diving at the Great Barrier Reef

Australia is home to the world’s largest coral reef sanctuary that is a natural habitat for thousands of marine flora and fauna. Spanning over 1,500 miles, the Great Barrier Reef is an underwater paradise for scuba divers and deep-sea explorers and is considered as one of the most exquisite natural wonders of the world.

    • Whale Viewing in Sydney

    With an abundance of water and the wildlife it houses, cruising is one of the most preferred options Australia has in store for locals as well as tourists. A marked increase has been observed in the number of whale pods sighted around Sydney, a sure-tell sign that this will be a great season for whale viewing in Sydney.

    The cruise starts at the Sydney Harbor, passes along the coast and lush green suburbs and into the open sea. Get yourself a good place on the deck and watch the Orcas, Humpbacks, Minkes and Bryde’s somersault and do some awesome stunts around the cruise boat.

  • Open-Air Moonlit Movie Night

Watching your favorite movie in a closed cinema is one thing and watching it under the star-studded and moon-lit sky is a completely different experience. Moonlight cinema shows are organized every year throughout the season at multiple venues in Australia. Take someone along or go solo as the movie night is a good event to eat, drink and socialize.

  • Hiking in the Blue Mountains

Aside from its enthralling downtown fun, the serenity of nature is situated at just a two-hour drive from Sydney. If you are a nature lover and wish to devour the scenic surroundings, put on your hiking boots, grab your backpack and set out a course for the rocky Blue Mountains. Explore the wildlife in its natural habitat, take a cruise across the river banks or admire the famous Three Sisters, the Blue Mountains has more to offer than trailing and hiking.
