Things to Do in Australia

Want to know some of the standout things to do in Australia? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayer's Rock for short!)

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in the Northern Territory. A huge park with a diverse array of flora and fauna, it’s home to the famous, sandstone Ayer’s Rock, perhaps the country’s most iconic sight.

2. Sydney Opera House

Another of Australia’s instantly recognizable symbols sits on the edge of Sydney Harbor. Designed by Jorn Utzon, it includes a concert hall, an opera theater, and three smaller performance spaces.

3. Bondi Beach

Australia’s most famous and popular stretch of sand, this kilometer-long beach is the spiritual home of the country’s surfing scene. Once the preserve of the young, the beautiful and the energetic, Bondi Beach is now a hotspot for bathers and sunbathers, too.

4. Melbourne Zoo

Australia’s oldest zoo is home to over 350 different species of wildlife that live within the 52 acre, botanical garden.

5. The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier is made up of a total of some 3000 individual reefs – making it the world’s largest coral reef system. Covering an area of 344,000 square kilometers off the coast of Queensland, the barrier is under threat from climate change and unsustainable fishing.
