Five of the best things to do in Victoria for adrenaline junkies
If it’s adventure you want, Victoria has plenty of options to satisfy. Here are a small selection of best-selling options that are sure to get your heart racing.
Whether it’s facing your fears, or you’re just curious to see the magnificent (and often misunderstood) creatures up close for yourself, a shark dive is sure to be an unforgettable experience. No previous scuba diving experience or certification is required as the instructors will run you through using the equipment.
We can’t all be racing drivers, but this experience feels pretty close. Take the wheel of an awesome V8 race car and go for the ride of your life around Melbourne’s famous Sandown Raceway. With full instruction from a pro racing driver, this is one drive you won’t forget in a hurry! End the experience by jumping in the passenger seat for some breathtaking hot laps to experience how a pro driver takes on the corners and straights.
What better way to see a place than by taking a helicopter ride above it? Flying high over the city of Melbourne is a real bucketlist-worthy adventure and a great way to get a whole new perspective on famous sights like the MCG, Eureka Tower and Docklands. It’s a great gift for any special occasion or an ideal way to treat yourself.
For a sky-high adventure of a different kind, Victoria is also the perfect place to tick a hot air balloon ride off your bucket list. Soar gracefully over the famous Yarra Valley wine region or even the city of Melbourne itself. You can even enjoy a delicious gourmet breakfast after your flight to round things off in style.
If it’s a bucket list experience you want, it doesn’t get much better than skydiving. There are arguably few better places in the world to take the leap from a plane at up 15,000ft than above the Great Ocean Road or over Melbourne’s famous St Kilda Beach.
I know we said five activities, but we couldn’t help but mention indoor skydiving too. This adrenaline rush activity is perfect in all weather conditions and can be enjoyed by the whole family (kids aged three and up can take part!). So, for the thrill of freefall without the need to jump from a plane, step in to iFly’s glass wind chamber.
Wherever you are, wherever you’re going, and whatever you’re into, you can rely on Adrenaline for the best experiences. With thousands of experiences to choose from, we’re sure to have something you’ll love. Don’t just take our word for it, take a look for yourself and plan your next adventure.
