There are many different kinds of travelling: romantic trips, party trips, sightseeing tours, going to the seaside etc. Another great way to travel is to go on an active holiday. This way you get to travel and be active, combine sightseeing and sports or recreation. It is healthy for both your body and your soul! Australia is a great candidate for this kind of vacation because of its untamed beauty that spreads all over the country. Here are some suggestions on how to spend your active vacation in Australia.

Visiting the Great Barrier Reef is a must-do in Australia. This place will utterly amaze you. It is considered one of the natural wonders and it is huge. The Reef consists only out of living organisms and can even be seen from outer space. You’ll be amazed by a variety of colours and sea inhabitants that you’ve never seen before in your life! You can either dive or snorkel, but you will surely have a blast. Just come here and dive in!

Another thing you can do at the Great Barrier Reef is sailing. Of course, it doesn’t have to be here, since Australia is rich in natural resources, you can sail anywhere and enjoy the view. One strong suggestion is sailing through the Whitsunday Islands. Just imagine sailing on the clear water, inhaling pure air and admiring the beauty of the beaches around you in the sunset or moonrise. This is a very romantic activity, so if you are travelling with your significant other, make sure to put it on your to do list!

Skydiving is one of the activities that are very suitable to do in Australia, because of its wonderful natural sites. Being a tourist, you are often in a hurry and on a tight schedule, constantly changing means of transportation in order to get to your next place on the list. It is understandable, of course; you don’t have much time and you want to do and see as much as you can. Skydiving will enable you to get a grasp of how big and beautiful this country is. Wherever you are, if you get up in the sky and look beneath you, your heart will skip a beat. Australian sceneries leave everyone breathless!

Playing Golf
If you’d like to take a break from all these somewhat physically demanding activities, why not do it over a game of golf? Visit the beautiful golf courses in Sydney and have a lovely relaxing day playing golf, eating some delicious fish tacos or burgers, and admiring the view of the beach at Long Reef. It is a good change from all the adrenaline rush you had so far and an opportunity to get some rest before you continue.

Another excellent way to indulge in your thrill-seeking personality. Rafting through the Whitsunday Islands will get your heart pumping as your guides whisk you around in high speed. You can choose from two different tours: the Northern Exposure, which is more suitable for big adventurers, since it also allows you to snorkel on the way, and the Southern Lights, which gives you more time to relax at the beach and is for the ones who do not like their adrenaline to go too high.

Spending your holiday actively will make you feel fulfilled in many ways. Not only will you get rest from your work, but also have numerous adventures behind you. Whether you have the opportunity to do all these activities at home or not, trying them in a different country is a whole new experience!
