Road trips are on everyone’s lists as we near summer, so we have a sneak peek into the wonderful journey known as ‘the ultimate trip around Australia’!
Start your time off in Sydney with a nice breakfast and coffee along Bondi Beach – there are a plethora of cafes to choose from and they’re all fantastic! From here, you can walk it off with a leisurely stroll along the clifftops between Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte beaches. If you take your time exploring the area, this should take you no more than two hours, and after you can take a dip in Bondi Beach, or even treat yourself to some surfing lessons!
For lunch, we recommend taking yourself to a seafood restaurant – what’s more Aussie than enjoying a bucket of prawns while overlooking the beach?
The Blue Mountains
Once you make your way to the Blue Mountains, you can take a bus and join a day tour of Katoomba where you will see the Three Sisters – a three-pronged rock formation that look quite similar, hence the name! From here, you can embark on the Aboriginal Blue Mountains Walkabout tour, which is an Aboriginal-owned and guided tour that takes you through some of the area’s most sacred sites.
Uluru doesn’t need an introduction but this trip wouldn’t be complete without it!
There are a number of tour companies that can also offer you a range of tours – they typically range from one to four days, so it’s completely up to you with what you’re up for! Alternatively, if you’re already there with your caravan, then you can explore by yourself. This is a great way to immerse yourself in the scenery at your own pace and take in all the wonderful sights.
The Great Barrier Reef
The great Barrier Reef stretches more than 2300 kilometres and features more than 3000 coral reefs, 900 separate islands and over 1500 species of fish.
The best part about the reef is that there are so many ways to experience this wonder of the world. You can opt for a day cruise, snorkel or dive your way through some coral gardens and some of the most colourful fish you’ve ever seen – the colours are so broad there aren’t even names for them!
