5 true blue ways to spend Australia Day!

January 20, 2010

If your Mum’s sloppy Pavlova just won’t cut the mustard this Australia Day, here’s some alternatives things to see and do thanks to Intrepid Travel.

1. Learn to surf at Bondi Beach

For many Australia Day wouldn’t be complete without a day at the beach. Learn to surf at Bondi Beach, one of Australia’s most iconic locations and afterwards enjoy a local favourite, fish and chips on the beach. Intrepid Travel’s Bondi Beach Urban Adventure surfs Bondi Beach this Australia Day.
So slip, slop, slap, pack the aeroguard and have a bloody good day.

2. Barefoot bowls with the locals in Cunnamulla

There’s nothing more Aussie than experiencing the outback town of Cunnamulla in Western Queensland. Celebrate Australia Day by having a yarn with the locals over a game of barefoot lawn bowls, beer and a barbeque. Top off the spirit of mate-ship by visiting the ANZAC monument at dusk. Intrepid Travel’s Essence of the Outback will spend time at Cunnamulla on Australia Day.

3. Swap the pub hop for the island hop

Swap the pub-hop for the island-hop this Australia Day and see some of Australia’s best beaches. Snorkel in and around Hervey Bay, Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island to discover sunken shipwrecks, lagoons and meet some new underwater friends along the way. Intrepid Travel’s Fraser Island & Reef Experience will visit Hervey Bay, Fraser Island and Lady Elliot Island this Australia Day.

4. Climb a mountain

With stunning gorges, lakes, peaks, moors, and a vast variety of wildlife, escape the hustle and bustle, pack the hiking boots and trek Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain. Flee the Australia Day crowds and soak up the piece and quiet in this nature haven. Intrepid Travel’s Tassie Explorer treks Cradle Mountain this Australia Day.

5. Marvel at the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest

Spend Australia Day in the most diverse eco-system in the world, the Daintree Rainforest. Untouched tropical rainforest and golden beaches make the Daintree Rainforest home to some of Australia’s famous flora and fauna. This World Heritage Listed area contains the highest number of plant and animal species that are rare anywhere in the world. Intrepid Travel’s East Coast Explorer ends in Cairns, the gateway to the Daintree on Australia Day.
