6 Amazing Australian Adventures to Add to Your Bucket List
Australia is all about adventure travel and here are the top experiences for you to have an absolutely amazing Aussie adventure.
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia’s most iconic structures. Let the salty sea air kiss your skin as you make your ascent. You’ll be guided on your climb with a prep talk, get all the safety gear you need, get a seriously impressive photo atop the 134-metre high summit and of course get some stories about the history of the bridge as you climb to the top. Choose a day climb, dawn, twilight or night-time ascent.

Fly over wetlands on the Mary River
Climb aboard your aluminium pontoon with V8 Chevrolet engine to get a seriously unique view of the wetlands. If you’re after maximum adrenalin, sit up front in the airboats of Bamurru Plains resort to experience a 5-star adventure. You can experience the joy with up to 5 mates as you scud over reed beds, swampland and open water on the boarder of Kakadu National Park, just three hours from Darwin Airport.
Take a roadtrip in Tasmania
While a roadtrip may seem a little relaxed for adrenaline junkies, roadtripping Tasmania is even recommended by Red Bull so you know you can’t go wrong. Get yourself a campervan to travel along the East Coast. Tasmania has some of the world’s most spectacular beaches, rainforests and is a true nature-lover’s paradise. Experience the open road and world-class food and wineries along the stunning coastline before camping out along one of the many free campgrounds on the beach for the night.

Go Whitewater Rafting on the Franklin
While you’re exploring Tasmania, head to the World Heritage listed Franklin River for a 5, 7 or 10 day wilderness whitewater rafting adventure. You’ll get to experience surging rapids and whitewater for a serious adrenaline kick as well as serene gorges and pristine temperate rainforests. You’ll likely encounter some of the native wildlife including platypus, wallabies, quolls, yellow-tailed black cockatoos and white-breasted sea eagles.
Sail the Whitsundays
Hire a boat and explore the Whitsundays. This is the best way to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef. Take a break from sailing and put on your snorkel to get up close and personal with the spectacular fish and other marine wildlife. Located off the coast of sunny Queensland and made up of a whopping 74 islands this is easily one of the most amazing Australian adventures to go on.
