Starting to plan your next holiday? Australia is shaping up for an exciting summer and here are some of Australia’s most unique and diverse experiences that you can add to your summer trip list.
From to luxury aircruising and truffle hunting to diving with crocodiles and island paradises – here is a list of Australia’s best travel gems for 2016.
Truffle hunting in Margaret River
Truffle hunting isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a completely unique experience then why not take a trip to the home of the largest producer of Superior Perigord Truffles in the world, located in Western Australia. These exclusive hunts are a must-do for foodies or anyone who loves the farm-to-plate experience. What’s more, getting to Margaret River is easy and convenient with efficient bus hire in WA.
Aircruise around Australia in luxury
If you are looking to tick off some of Australia’s most awe inspiring landmarks then The Great Australian Aircruise makes it possible. This 12-day long aircruise sees you breakfasting on Broom’s Cable Beach, before boarding your plane to reach Uluru for an evening of dining under the stars. You’ll also get to witness amazing sights like the Buccaneer Archipego, the Red Centre and Katherine Gorge.
Outback walking in style
Redefine the ‘classic’ bush walk by adding luxury touches to private hikes in Australia’s most beautiful landscapes. Immerse yourself in the history of the land, and the wildlife as you trek through the Flinders Ranges National Park with an experienced guide, before relaxing at night in your organised luxury accommodation.
Kick back on Lord Howe Island
The word paradise instantly comes to mind the minute you step onto Lord Howe Island. The coconut palms, the green volcanic peaks and the coral gardens make this place something pretty special. Everyone swims, fishes or cycles on Lord Howe Island so whether you are looking to kick back with a a cocktail in hand or get out and active, then there’s something for everyone.
If adrenaline rushes and getting up close and personal with dangerous animals is your thing, then why not visit Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin. This is Australia’s only crocodile dive centre and offers a thrilling and terrifying experience! This is an amazing opportunity to come nose to snout with one of Australia’s most iconic animals.
View the Southern Lights in Tassie
Everyone should see the Southern Lights at least once in their life. Luckily for us Tasmania is one of the best places in Australia where you can experience the Aurora Australis – The Southern Lights. This beautiful rare and spectacular green glow in the sky is best viewed between March/April and September, with viewing locations best near Coles Bay or Cockle Creak.
If you are planning a trip then don’t forget to ensure your travel insurance policy covers you for everything you need and is up to date – especially if you choose the crocodile diving…
