There is hardly anything more beautiful than a sailing trip through the picturesque island world of the Whitsunday Islands in the Great Barrier Reef. Whether as a day trip or as a multi-day trip, sailing in Down Under is an unforgettable experience that should definitely be considered by anyone who does not become seasick too quickly

 

2. To windsurf

Surfing is not only the popular sport of The Australians, but also countless tourists take advantage of the excellent conditions for surfing.

In any case, the conditions could not be better for beginners and advanced users than in Down Under

 

3. Diving & Snorkeling

Diving and snorkelling are undoubtedly among the most popular activities in Australia. Of course, the splendour of colours and biodiversity of the largest coral reef on earth play the decisive role here. But also on the west coast you will find excellent diving & snorkeling areas on the beach-near Ningaloo Reef

Therefore, there are tours in various places that specialize in enabling this experience for interested travelers by boating to the marine mammals within a few meters away

 

10. Visit to the Sydney Opera House

Since by far most tourists land or depart from Sydney and there is probably not a single Sydney tourist who would miss out on the world-famous Opera House, visiting it is one of the most popular activities. The one-hour guided tours through the interior of the striking building are particularly popular. But participation in one of the numerous events is also very popular. (see: Sydney Opera House)
