Looking to get the most out of your Australia Day weekend? We have you covered, with awesome adventures near you and all around Australia. Whether you are taking some time off to create your own long weekend, or just want to get out and about on Saturday and Sunday, here are the adventures to add to your itinerary.
What to do in NSW & ACT
Make this a weekend that will stand out with exhilarating skydiving over the beach in Wollongong, or over Newcastle Beach. Or if you’re more into low-key adventures, grab a surfboard and head to the Central Coast for a private surfing lesson, or take your board to the sand dunes with sandboarding and a 4WD tour in Port Stephens. Otherwise, stop by the gorgeous Blue Mountains for a half-day canyoning adventure.
What to do in VIC
Go from land to sea this Australia Day weekend, and get behind the wheel with an epic Ferrari Drive along the winding roads of the Mornington Peninsula. A must do for all car lovers! Then gear up for some stand up paddle boarding and witness the gorgeous Phillip Bay. If flying adventures are more your style, give this hot air balloon experience over the Yarra Valley a go. The perfect summer weekend.
What to do in WA
There’s no better weekend to get out and about, exploring the beautiful WA landscape. First experience the wonders of the Ningaloo Reef with a glass bottom boat tour, finished off with some snorkelling alongside green sea turtles. Then it’s time for some action with an epic flyboarding and water jetpack lesson.
What to do in SA
How about a relaxing kayak journey along Adelaide's shipwreck heritage trail? You’re the master of your own adventure as you glide along the waters and explore Adelaide from an entirely new perspective. Or bring the family along for an escape room and see if you can beat the clock in this challenging adventure.
What to do in TAS
If you’re feeling adventurous this weekend, this tree top ropes course in Launceston is the perfect activity to add to your to do list. Challenge yourself and brace new heights in self-achievement!
