Ultimate Aussie Bucket List

We’ve made a fun Aussie bucket list showing the top ten ultimate Aussie locations. From the Sydney Opera House, to the Blue Mountains and Byron Bay, pack your bags for an Aussie adventure. Let’s go on a road trip!

Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the number one must-see location in Australia. Finding Nemo has never been easier. It is classed as the world’s largest coral reef and comprises of a whopping 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays. The reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world and is bigger than the Great Wall of China! Get some sun, sand, salt and surf as you head to Far North Queensland to fall in love with the GBR hook, line and sinker. You'll have a license to krill....

Uluru/Ayers Rock

Uluru is one of the most iconic attractions in Australia, found in the Central Australian desert. The red rock stands 348 metres high and is around half a billion years old! For the indigenous peoples of Australia, Uluru is an incredibly sacred site and a link to spirit ancestors. The best time to visit is at sunrise or sunset to experience the golden light over the rock. To quote Priscilla - Queen of the Desert: 'All you need is a cock with a frock on a rock'.

Great Ocean Road

Hello sea-breeze and sunshine... This is the ultimate road trip. This 243km stretch of heaven is the perfect way to take in Australia’s scenery. There’s so much to do along this strip of road, like seeing the 12 Apostles, hiking through the rainforest, and surfing iconic surf breaks. Start creating your ultimate road trip playlist, because we’re going for a drive.

Blue Mountains National Park

If you love the outdoors, this place has to be on your must-see list for 2020. The Blue Mountains is the best place to go bushwalking and camping. Whether you want a romantic couple’s getaway or a family escape, breathe the fresh mountain air as you enter the Blue Mountains region. Plug into natures hi-fi and plug out from wi-fi.

Sydney Opera House

An iconic symbol of Australia, the Sydney Opera House, is recognised all over the world and the most visited landmark by Australians. Fun fact: more than 10.9 million people visit the Opera House every year. See a show and take in the best views of Sydney - yes please!

Bondi Beach

One of the most iconic beaches in Australia, Bondi Beach. Year round you will find it hard to find a place to sit on this beach. Popular with both locals and tourists, a trip to Sydney wouldn’t be complete without it. Did you know there’s a TV show specifically made for this beach? Check out all the local cafes and get some vitamin sea!

Byron Bay

Head to Byron Bay for a ‘laxed weekend of doing absolutely nothing. Take a dip at Wategos Beach, have lunch at The Farm Byron Bay, or have a lazy day at the Halcyon Spa. Whatever you choose to do, I can assure you you’ll feel super relaxed by the end of it. The lighthouse walk is always good to enjoy the most easterly point in Australia. Love you Byron.
