Explore its beaches and bay’s

One of the first places you want to check out, especially if you are looking to surf, is Bondi Beach. This place is one of the most famous places for surfing; it is located just outside of Sydney and is classic surf territory for the Aussie surfers.

It has a sandy beach and great consistent waves, making it the best place to soak up the sun and surf. Another great Bay to go to is Byron Bay, which is found at the top of New South Wales and Australia’s top coastal destinations. Byron Bay is another great place for learning to surf and hang out to check out the beautiful sunrise over Byron Bay’s lighthouse.


Check out one of the world’s oldest rainforests

If you are planning to visit Queensland, then you cannot miss out on going to the world’s oldest rainforest. The Daintree rainforest has stood for about 180 million years and is still going strong, filled with beautiful flora and wildlife.

It is definitely a place to check out. You can get a tour along the river Daintree to look out for crocodiles and venture into the stunning rainforest with the local guides, where you can also explore beaches and mangroves within the rainforest.


Plenty of food to check out

One of the great things about Australia is how diverse it is, and that goes for the culinary aspect of the country also.

If you are a picky eater or there are certain things you like then travelling to Australia will not be a problem, firstly you can understand all the menus. There is unlikely to be any language barrier which is great for anyone travelling with an allergy. Also, they have so much on offer in the shops and restaurants; from bubble tea supplies to french fries, there are so many different culinary dishes to have.

Obviously, it would be fantastic to travel to Australia, the home of a sizzling BBQ and enjoy a beautiful BBQ meal while over in the land down under.


If you are looking to visit Australia for the first time and you are unsure where to start or what to check out while you’re there, then these few tips should get you started, but there is so much more you can explore too.
