Australia combines civilization with nature. The vast kilometers of outback available to explore, to swim in, to surf, and to simply view make it one of the places that people love to visit as tourists.
If you’re planning a trip to Australia or you want some reasons as to why you should visit Australia, then take a look at four of the activities that you can’t and shouldn’t miss on a trip to Australia.
1. Swim with the Dolphins
Dolphins are considered one of the world’s smartest animals. They have an incredible handle on language due to their unique biological roles.
The best part about dolphins, at least from a tourist’s perspective, is how friendly they are. Swimming with dolphins is one of the most unique parts about a visit to Australia, and it’s something that you should do at least once in your life.
2. Explore Canberra, the Capital of Australia
Australia’s capital, Canberra, is large and beautiful. You’ll find Australia’s history, her government, her sports achievements, and everything else that makes Australia unique documented here.
There’s so much to explore that it may take several trips to see it all.
At some point in your trip to Australia, you have to take a hot air balloon over the capital to see it. It’s one of the few capitals around the world where you can do so.
3. Surfing off New South Wales
Australia’s coast make for some of the best surfing spots found worldwide. You wouldn’t believe how the magnificent and beautiful the blue waters, the intoxicating aroma of fresh seawater and the golden sands come together to make a great trip to Australia even better.
The best part is that Australia’s surf spots vary in levels of challenge. The beaches along New South Wales, such as these surf spots in Australia on Fatal Dose, are friendly to beginners while being challenging enough to host surf competitions.
You’ll definitely want to visit these locations on your next trip to Australia.
4. Ride the Great Southern Rail
There’s always something magical about trains. They travel through parts of the world that few people can see on their own.
Most of the tracks that constitute Australia Great Southern Rail have nothing but kilometers of nature surrounding them. Australia’s original occupants, such as koalas and kangaroos, are clearly visible along these leisurely trips guided by rails.
Do yourself a favor when you visit Australia next: buy a ticket on the Indian Pacific or the Ghan to travel along the Great Southern Rail.

The four activities listed above are only a starting point for things you should do while in Australia. There’s still more to do, which includes everything from flying over the Great Barrier Reef in a charter helicopter to dining at some of the oldest and finest pubs in Australia.
To partake in these activities that you’ll never forget, you’ll need to experience them in person. Plan to do so on your next visit to Australia to make the most out of your next trip to the Outback.
