Things to Do in Australia
     
The Red Centre
Places to visit in Red Centre
Alice Springs and surrounds
Stay in the famous outback town of Alice Springs, which sits in Australia’s red heart just 200 kilometres south of its geographic centre. From here you can bushwalk, four wheel drive or join a camel trek across the rolling sand dunes of the Simpson Desert. Bike ride to Simpsons Gap at dawn, discover different Aboriginal art styles along the Tanami Track and explore the rock art, artefacts and ceremonial sites near the small Aboriginal community of St Teresa.
 
     
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
Uluru rise 348 metres from the desert in the deep centre of Australia, matching the light and weather with hues so vivid they upstage the sunset. Walk around Uluru’s base with an Anangu guide, and learn how it was created by spirit ancestors in the Dreamtime. You can even trace the battle scars they left behind. See Uluru on a motorcycle, from the back of a camel or on a scenic helicopter flight. Drink in its sunset glow with a glass of champagne, then return to a campfire dinner of barramundi, emu or kangaroo underneath a starlit sky. Just 40 kilometres away you’ll find Kata Tjuta - steep, rounded, russet domes formed through more than 500 million years of erosion. You can experience both wonders in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which offers tours by Aboriginal guides and accommodation ranging from campsites to luxury resort.
 
     
Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park
Trek to the rim of Kings Canyon for breathtaking views across the rugged bluffs and gorges of Watarrka National Park. The canyon’s towering rock walls shelter palm-filled crevices and pockets of lush green in otherwise inhospitable desert. See rare plants from a lone-gone wetter age and swim in the tropical pools of the Garden of Eden. Explore the weathered rock domes of the Lost City. See sunset at Carmichael Crag, take the Kathleen Springs Walk to a pretty waterhole or trek overnight on the Giles Track.  If camping doesn’t appeal, spend the night in a resort or wilderness lodge.
 
Finke Gorge National Park
Four wheel drive next to towering sandstone cliffs and the mostly sandy Finke River. Mostly dry in Finke Gorge National Park. Explore the desert oasis of Palm Valley, the only place in the world you’ll find the Red Cabbage Palm. You can meander through the slender palms on the Arankaia Walk or the longer Mpulungkinya Walk. Afterwards, follow the short Kalaranga Lookout Walk for spectacular views of the rock amphitheatre circled by rugged cliffs. Or learn about the mythology of the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people on the popular two-hour Mpaara Walk. See long-limbed gums stretch over glimmering water and mountain ranges turn from purple to burning ochre in the setting sun.
 
     
MacDonnell Ranges
Walk the Larapinta Trail or Emu Dreaming path to Ormiston Gorge and Pound, past graceful red river gums, wallabies and cool, clear waterholes.  Marvel at the gorge’s sheer walls rising 300 metres out of Ormiston Creek, then dive into the waterhole that is 14 metres deep. You can also cool off in Ellery Creek Big Hole, Redbank Gorge and picturesque Glen Helen Gorge. See rock wallabies in and around the ridges and ghost gums of Simpsons Gap. Walk to Standley Chasm and see its steep walls blaze red in the midday sun. Don’t miss the 20 kilometre wide crater at Gosse Bluff, or Tnorala to the Western Arrernte Aboriginal people. Their dreaming story is a little more magical than the scientific explanation which says it was formed by a comet crashing to Earth about 130 million years ago. In the East MacDonnell Ranges, you can bush walk, camp, four-wheel-drive and visit Trephina Gorge and the gold rush ghost town of Arltunga.
 
     
Great Barrier Reef
No trip to Australia would be complete without visiting the Great Barrier Reef. The famous reef can be found off the coast of Queensland and it’s the world’s largest coral reef spreading over 2,600 km with approximately 900 islands. The most famous area is the Whitsundays. If you know someone who has visited The East Coast it’s highly likely you have received a postcard with a picture of The Whitsundays.
You can also scuba dive or snorkel as well as enjoying incredible cuisine that is often served on the boats. There are many types of deals on offer, just head for the coastal town Airlie Beach and shop around for the best price. The Great Barrier Reef has all kinds of incredible fish including clownfish (remember Nemo), manta rays, red bass, red-throat emperor, snapper, tiger sharks and yellow-faced angelfishes, not forgetting the beautiful coloured coral. Just beware of the fire coral-it will hurt!
 
     
Fraser Island
Fraser Island is a fantastic location. It’s actually believed to be the largest sand island in the world and spreads across 1840 km. Most tours start at Hervey Bay on the mainland here you can book a tour and then collect your four wheel drive vehicle, just make sure you do your food and alcohol shopping before getting the ferry to Fraser Island.
Once on the Island you will have two or three days driving around on the sand, trying to avoid crashing while checking out various interesting spots. Don’t miss the famous clear Champagne Pool (which is great to lie in) or the Wreck of the Maheno which is a perfect photo opportunity. A good tip is to beware of the Dingos! They sometimes wander into the camp grounds at night looking for food but they don’t tend to approach people. Fraser island is a fun experience you’ll also get the chance to chose to where to camp each night.
 
     
Barossa Valley
In Barossa Valley, fall in love with wine, red wine in particular. Barossa Valley is Australia’s most famous wine region producing famous brands such as Penfolds, Orlando Wines, Wolf Blass and Yalumba.  If you can, try to avoid driving so you can enjoy the wineries without worrying about driving home, go with Prime Mini Tours and had the pleasure of visiting five wineries and a stop where we enjoyed a three course dinner consisting of barramundi, crocodile and kangaroo.
 
     
Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third biggest Island, it’s only smaller than Tasmania and Melville Island. To get to the Island you need to get a ferry from Adelaide. It’s home to some wonderful wildlife including albino wallabies, sea lions and lots of little blue penguins which come onto the land at sunset for feeding.
 
     
Broome
Broome is located in Western Australia. Broome is the place to get your pearls, but realistically visitors go to Broome to relax and for Cable Beach. Cable Beach is  Broome’s most famous beach and one of Australia‘s top ten beaches. Broome is possibly the most relaxing place It really is a special place which is perfect for taking some time out. When here make sure you should visit the open air cinema which makes a good start to the night before hitting the bars.
 
     
Byron Bay
Byron Bay is a beachside town in New South Wales. Byron Bay provides a perfect escape from city life. Byron Bay is a is very relaxing location and the local community is full of artists which gives it a creative bohemian feel. The Bay is a good place to relax as well as picking up some lovely gifts for family and friends.
 
The epic waves have been attracting surfers to Wategos and Main Beach for years. Visitors come to Byron’s beaches for meditation, massage, hang gliding, walks and sheltered swimming as much as tubular waves.
Kayak with dolphins from Main Beach or snorkel or scuba dive at Julian Rocks Marine Park. Hit the popular surf break The Pass or go horse-riding and beach fishing on Seven Mile Beach, near Lennox Head. Wind along the peninsula on the Cape Byron Walking Track and see Australia’s first sunrise turn the Cape Byron lighthouse pink.
 
Buy exotic fruit from the famous monthly Byron Bay Community Markets, where jugglers, mime-artists and musicians add to the colour. Or stop at a roadside stall for coffee, avocadoes and macadamias. At the September Taste of Byron festival, you can sample food and coffee from Byron’s finest restaurants and best baristas.
Enjoy everything from sinful breakfasts to fresh juices and gelato in Byron’s thriving cafés. Or dine on carefully-prepared organic fare at award-winning restaurants and luxury guesthouses. To really embrace the laidback Byron lifestyle, sit down to a leisurely lunch of local seafood.
   
     
Kakadu National Park
Kakadu National Park is in the Northern Territory and makes a special stop. The national park is very large, covering an area of 4,894,000 acres. You will find Alligator Rivers running through Kakadu. You can drive in yourself but for the alligator reason it’s best to take a tour!. The tours will also allow you to meet local Aborignals who have opted to stay in their ancestral homes rather than moving to cities. Remember to avoid the wet season as large parts of the park are closed and the crocs come out to play!
 
     
Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road stretches along the south-eastern coast of Australia between Torquay and Warrnambool and lasts for 243km. The journey is one to be savoured and there are various look-out points to view the amazing scenery. The views consists of different rocks jutting out of the ocean, the most renowned being the “Twelve Apostles.” It’s a highly photogenic place especially at sunset and sunrise. There are various options for day trips but I think it’s better to stop where you want rather than have a guide dictate where you stop.
