Nothing beats the perfect summer escape! We’ve taken all the hard work out of planning your next getaway and compiled a list of the top must-do experiences around Australia. From spectacular coastal destinations, iconic Australian locations or simply getting back to nature, you’ll want to go somewhere great this summer!
1. Embrace the outdoors
Breath-taking views will encourage you to get fit! Regardless if you are just starting out or a fitness fanatic, we have bush trails, coastal walks and hinterland hikes for everyone. Experience the Tasman Peninsula and hike the famous Three Capes trail at Port Arthur, or step things up a level and ‘conquer kozzie’. Tick Australia’s highest summit off the bucket list and climb Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain at 2,228 metres just outside of Jindabyne.

2. Hit the Great Ocean Road
Think iconic natural wonders including the 12 Apostles, London Bridge, and Loch Ard Gorge are all the Great Ocean Road has to offer? Think again! Experience the Cape Otway Light station set 91 meters above the ocean, Cape Patton lookout offering breath-taking views of Victoria’s coastline, Port Campbell National Park, world renowned surfing at Bells Beach and Cape Nelson State Park in Portland Bay. You'll wonder why you waited this long to experience the Great Ocean Road.
3. Get back to nature
Looking to get back to nature? Spot dolphins in their natural habitat in Lakes Entrance at Eastern Beach, witness kangaroos in the wild at Murramarang, learn about marine conservation at the Marine Discovery Centre in Port Macquarie or teach the little ones about Australian Native animals at Urimbirra Wildlife Park in Victor Harbor.
