If you are looking for great places to kick back in Australia, this text is what you were looking for.


Finding the perfect spot for a family vacation can be an extremely difficult task, as every family member has different desires and needs, and while someone will need a place to rest, someone else might be interested in an excellent night life. Fortunately for you, you can find almost everything in Australia. A destination can range from secluded beaches to wild safari adventure. If you are bringing your children with you then you’ll need to find the right place to make them feel engaged, meaning you’ll have more time for yourself once they are asleep.

Australia is a very popular place to visit, and sure, it is pretty far away, but that only increases the adventure part and makes it an even more exotic destination that you simply have to check out. There are a lot of offers you can find, and surely, you can come up with something within your price range. The climate is hot, the people are friendly, and the food can sometimes be quite scary, but extremely diverse. Another great advantage of traveling across the planet is that you can go there, even during winter, and yet find the perfect summer heat you’re craving for.

Anywhere near The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is not only a wonderful sight to see, but it is also one of the most important ecological sites in the word, which is why it is on a World Heritage list. It stretches for more than 2300 kilometers and it presents a home for a lot of different and unique animal and plant species that are under protection because most of them are endangered. It’s hard to pinpoint one area to visit but Whitsunday Islands, but you will hardly get to see anything within only one day. So, it would be the best if you dedicated 2 or 3 days just for this, and there is plenty of activities you can do with your family, especially children, as snorkeling and scuba diving areas are scattered all over the place. It is also an area where humpback whales can breed, making it extremely delicate, and all the visits are strictly controlled so that these rare animals are not to be disturbed.


Visiting Australia without going to Sydney is like going to Germany without having a beer. It would be truly a great shame not to visit this city that stands as a proud icon to the whole world. True, there are a lot of different locations around Australia where you can spend your time, but Sydney is truly the metropolitan area it claims to be, and you should at least spend one day just walking there. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of night clubs, concerts, or simple shopping, there is always something for everyone in Sydney. The Harbor is simply breathtaking and it is certainly one of the many jewels that can be found there. Not only is Sydney the greatest economic center of the whole Australia, but it is also its beating heart. The number of restaurants will astound you, and you can try anything from every corner of the world - which is another great way of describing Sydney.


If you are a fan of surfing, then you must visit the Gold Coast, since it is famous for some of the nicest waves in the world. If you are coming from Brisbane, there are a plenty of secluded beaches where you can learn this highly attractive skill that combines good coordination and body movement with just a little danger. There are also quite a few places where you can engage into another popular water sport - Wakeboarding, which combines skiing, snowboarding and surfing. The rider is usually pulled behind a motorboat, and it can be an excellent exercise. Make sure to pay special attention if you are buying a wakeboard, as there are special requirements depending on the level of your proficiency. If you are more interested into something less active, you can spread a beach towel or two and lay around in the hot sun, working on that tan of yours. Make sure to bring a cocktail or two so that you can survive the heat, and everything will be good, even if just for a moment.

Australia is one of my favourite holiday destinations, after my own New Zealand of course.
