At some point in our lives, if possible, we should all take a trip down under to Australia and New Zealand. If that is something you have always wanted to do and something that you are trying to arrange, you could do a lot worse than booking through Check-In. Even if you have decided Australia is right for you, there is so much to see and do that it may be tricky trying to work out where you should travel to. To help you, in the following post we have listed a few of the places and things you definitely won’t want to miss out on.
Uluru is essentially situated in the middle of nowhere in the heart of Australia’s Northern Territory and is a gateway for looking at Australia’s aboriginal past. Ayers Rock is probably the most famous landmark, which is at its most majestic early in the morning at sunrise and late at night at sunset.
Sail the Bay Of Islands, New Zealand
The Bay of Islands is a protected collection of 150 islands that are renowned for their natural beauty. There are various different cruises and trips that you can go on, depending on where you intend on starting the journey and the islands have real historical significance as they are said to be the original home of the Maori.
Taste Wine at the Source in Yarra and Hunter Valley
Australian Shiraz is available and popular all over the world. However, it will never taste as good as it does when you have it on the territory it originates from. There are various tours that are run in both the Yarra Valley and the Hunter Valley with enough variety to suit all discerning tastes and palettes.
Climb On Top Of Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney is famous for its many landmarks, vibrant city life and beaches. Therefore a trip to Sydney would not be complete without taking the opportunity to have a bird’s eye view of the city. The best way to get this kind of view is from the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge. There are special tours that are run in the city that explore the city’s biggest bridge and you are also taken to the top to have a perfect 360 degree view of Sydney from 440 ft. in the air.
The Sounds of New Zealand Cruise
Many would argue that even though New Zealand has its fair share of stunning and beautiful sights, that the most scenic part of the country is in fact the Sounds. These are found in the south west side of South Island and offer a truly magical experience that you will remember all your life.
We feel that while this list is not exhaustive, and there are many other delights both big and small to experience and discover when travelling down under; that our suggestions at least give you something to start your adventure with. The important thing to remember about a trip to Australia and the neighbouring New Zealand is that there are no wrong decisions when choosing which sights and adventures to go on.
