Where indeed do you begin your Australian adventure? I think you’ll find just thinking about a holiday to Australia will set your mind going and body tingling. Few places offer such diversity especially once you head out of the main cities. For most people the adventure will begin in either Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide as these are the most popular ‘gateways’ into Australia with more international flights arriving than Perth, Brisbane or Darwin. With its vast Outback, gorgeous stretches of beaches, ancient forests, coastal reefs and distinct wildlife, Australia offers the holiday maker more than most top destinations around the world.
Contact me (Jerry Bridge)for my advice and learn about Australia’s many adventurous journeys, ranging from Outback Australia’s 4WD routes to challenging long-distance walks and picturesque diving/sailing trips. Hear what I have to say about places to visit in the remote, rugged Australian Outback, from Australia’s Red centre to South Australia’s Flinders Ranges and the magical Kimberley in Western Australia.
Australia is a surfer’s paradise, let me tell you where the best beaches are across the country, from Victoria’s Surf Coast to Byron Bay in New South Wales. Discover the best hot-spots for diving and snorkelling, from Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef to Tasmania’s East Coast Dive Trail. Then learn more about the beautiful Australian places you can canoe or kayak, from Katherine Gorge to the turquoise waters of Tasmania’s Freycinet National Park. Experience Sydney’s famous ‘Bridge Climb’ – it has to be one of my all time favourite activities (I’ve climbed it three times). You’ll never tire of the stunning views from the top of Sydney harbour and the magnificent Opera House (see the photo below!)
