Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road Tour
When you fly into Melbourne, don’t be surprised by the ocean view on one side of the city and the rolling mountains on the other. As you take in the sights, you’ll definitely want to take the Great Ocean Road tour. A road that hugs the Australian coastline between Melbourne and Adelaide, the Great Ocean Road will have you in awe of Australia’s natural beauty.
From golden beaches to thriving rainforests, this road is unlike any other. On the tour you can experience breathtaking views of beaches, lighthouses, and even scope out some koala bears among other wildlife in the Otway Rainforest.
Adventures in Adelaide
Known as Australia’s “festival city”, Adelaide has enough sights and sounds for even the most energetic visitor. The bustling capital has botanical gardens, white beaches, and the best wineries in the country. The city is also abundant with museums that celebrate its Aboriginal and European history.
From good food to scenic views, Adelaide doesn’t stop there. Take a trip just south of the city to the Fleurieu Peninsula to try some wine at the famous vineyards.
Styling it up in Sydney
From historic The Rocks to the breathtaking Opera House, Sydney is a city of non-stop fun. Sydney Harbour is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. You can kayak past Sydney Opera House and under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You can also take a ferry from Circular Quay to various Sydney Harbour islands for family picnics.
After you’ve enjoyed the harbour, learn how to surf at Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, or any of Sydney’s other 70 beaches. Why not take a walking trail from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach, and on the way do some whale watching?
Visit the glamorous Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is a modern, glittering city with some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. From sporting festivals to five-star restaurants, spas and hotels, this city is for those who want some fun in the sun.
If you’re with kids, why not stop off at Sea World and swim with the dolphins, or visit Dreamworld theme park? You can then move on to Surfers Paradise for some non-stop surfing or snorkelling and scuba diving with wobbegong sharks, turtles and fish.
You’ll be happy to know there are Gold Coast holiday apartments available for tourists. With a holiday apartment taken care of, you will have the time to visit the Gold Coast hinterland, where you can lose yourself in the rainforest. Take in the waterfalls, beech trees and wildlife that surround you at the Tamborine National Mountain Park.
From the Gold Coast and Sydney to Adelaide and Melbourne, Australia’s cities have so much to offer!
