Down Under is one of those places that we all want to travel. The problem is, it is so far away from anywhere that is New Zealand, which is basically the rest of the world, and the combination of long-haul flights and pricey tickets can put a lot of people off. However, with this massive island being chock-full of gorgeous destinations, it is well worth you saving up and getting yourself down to the land down under. And that is what we’re here to do. We’re here to convince you that this could be the trip of a lifetime, and one that you won’t regret making. Enjoy.

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef pops up on best natural wonders more times than David Beckham pops up on GQ’s best dressed list. And for good reason too. It is staggering. Claiming the top spot for biggest reef in the world, it is packed with bright colours and awe-inspiring sealife. There is absolutely no way you will be able to see the entire reef because it is simply huge, but even just getting to float over a portion of this incredible feat of natural beauty will gift you with a year’s worth of adjectives.


It’s the events capital of Australia, and that means it is the most vibrant city you could possibly hope for. They know how to put on a show, the kind that keeps locals living there and keeps visitors coming back. Ut it isn’t just about the events, the music or the sport or any of that. It is about the enthusiasm that bursts from this city, it is so infectious. And what’s more, it is surrounded by incredible adventures. There is Apollo Bay, Hepburn Springs, Venus Bay, Colac and Cowes, just to name a few, so don’t hesitate; Go Make Some Memories right now.


The city that has it all, and we mean all. It is simply breathtaking. There is the gorgeously fast-paced city, that has this combination of vibes; metropolitan cool smashed together with lazy surfer days. And that is because it is a city surrounded by gorgeous gold beaches. But that shouldn’t distract you from all there is to see, because in terms of tourist must-sees there is the opera house, the harbour bridge and the royal botanical gardens. And that is just us scratching at the surface.

The Gold Coast

Is there a cooler more attractive name for somewhere than the Gold Coast. It’s one of those places where you hear the name and you automatically know exactly what you are in for when you arrive. It’s the ideal mix of laid-back beaches and a thriving city, and we mean thriving. It has theme parks and Surfer’s Paradise and Nobby and zoos and even glow worm caves. It goes off on the Gold Coast, and is a place you have to stop by, even if it just for a short stop designed to replenish. Trust us, you won’t regret your days of sun-bathing in this idyllic setting.
