Fun Things to Do in Australia With Friends
Australia has a lot to offer, and it’s the perfect place to get away with friends. From beaches to mountains, deserts and everything in between, there are plenty of things to do in Australia. Whether you want to take on the wilderness or enjoy some culture—here are some fun activities you can do with friends while travelling in Australia!
Hang out with some friends
This is an obvious one, but it’s also a great one. When you’re travelling with friends, it can be tempting to try and do as much sightseeing as possible and cram in all the activities you want to fit into your trip. But sometimes, it really just feels nice to relax and hang out with some friends at home.
If you have access to a kitchen, try whipping up something tasty for dinner together. If not, order in! Whether it’s pizza or sushi or even burgers from down the street—whatever feels good at the time (and won’t leave your wallet empty).
If you’re feeling adventurous enough for some shisha in Australia; don’t forget about this classic way of relaxing together with friends—whether indoors or outdoors (your call).
There are plenty of places where they’ll gladly bring over everything else besides the hookah itself—like water pipes and tobacco—so all that’s left is choosing what flavour (s) sounds best on that particular day! If not shisha, then maybe FIFA? Or, if neither sounds appealing, the great Australian outdoors awaits with beaches, kangaroos and everything in between!
Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on earth, home to thousands of species of fish, turtles and birds. Snorkelling and diving are available at all levels, from beginners to advanced divers.
Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is a must-see in Australia. It was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and is one of the best-known examples of modern architecture in the world.
Located on Sydney Harbour, it has become an iconic part of Australia’s skyline and has been featured in many films and television shows over the years. With its sail-like roof and curved walls extending into beautiful bays, this building is easily recognisable by anyone who has seen pictures or videos online.
The opera house itself hosts performances throughout the year—mostly operas and musicals but also dance performances, comedy shows, plays, concerts, etc.—and there are also plenty of things you can do outside to make your visit even more fun (and educational!).
Port Arthur, on the island of Tasmania, is an ideal destination for all kinds of travellers. Here you’ll find a beautiful location and lots of things to do. The area has been shaped by its history as one of Australia’s oldest penal colonies. This was also where many convicts were sent to serve out their sentences, so it makes sense that there would be plenty of jailhouses to explore today!
Blue Mountains National Park
The Blue Mountains National Park is located in New South Wales, Australia. It’s home to some of the country’s most beautiful scenery, including the Three Sisters rock formation and Katoomba Falls. There are several hiking trails that you can take through the park and plenty of places to explore by car or bus.
The drive from Sydney takes about two hours, so it makes for an excellent day trip if you want to get away from city life for a bit!
All of these are great reasons to visit Australia, and make sure you don’t forget to take some amazing photos!
