Top 5 / Australia

Built from a renegade history in the wild outback, it is no wonder Australia boasts some of the most travel-worthy adventure activities within its ruggedly picturesque landscape.

Surfing

Any trip to Australia should include at least one day of surfing. Paddle out in any of the great spots between Brisbane and Sydney or take to Byron Bay for a lesson. Visit iconic beaches and check out the incredible coastline, varying swells and local attractions to choose the right beach for you from Bells Beach and Victoria’s Surf Coast to the more challenging tides of Snapper Rocks on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Skydiving

Get a bird’s eye view of Australia’s breathtaking landscape with the ultimate adventure activity, skydiving. With 18 locations across the country, Skydive Australia provides an array of options for divers to experience. Explore the best of the country’s varying vistas from beginner and fan favorite locale Byron Bay in New South Wales to Mission Beach, Queensland, Melbourne, Victoria and Perth City, Western Australia.

Off-Roading

Enjoy the Outback the “Aussie” way with a four-by-four SUV tour through Fraser Island in Queensland, Australia. Drive yourself or join a group through the lush wooded Outback, over sand-covered beaches and along scenic routes through the island’s rugged terrain. Take a long daytrip and see the sights or opt for the full camping package including accommodation options and extended tours.

Camel Rides

Slow down and take to the pristine beaches of Broome, Western Australia, on camel back. For a leisure-meets-adventure activity, enjoy camel safari tours extending from 30–60 minutes during sunrise, pre-sunset and sunset tours of Broome’s beach.

White Water Rafting

Get back on the water for some white-water rafting. The Tully River by Mission Beach in Queensland, Australia, is a tourist favorite. Take to the open rough waters and enjoy some adventure and excitement with friends while paddling through the varying current of the Tully River. After the rafting trip, enjoy the river’s natural beauty and calmer waters with a refreshing dip and rock jumping.
