Longer trips in Australia & New Zealand

February 23, 2017

 

1. Fly to Perth, and do a road trip of the stunning scenery from Perth to Kalbarri National Park. I did this drive with friends, and absolutely loved the nature in Western Australia. We rented rooms in simple bed & breakfasts, however camping is another option. Drive up to Monkey Mia to feed dolphins, and ride camels in Broome if you have more time.

 

 

2. Start by flying to the nearest airport to Whitsunday Island, then tour the Whitsundays by sailboat for a night or two. After, take the bus or drive up to Cairns. Go diving in the infamous Great Barrier Reef before the coral dies, and bungy jumping at AG Hackett Cairns. Bungy jumping gave me a rush of adrenaline. The day after, I went on a tour to see the jungle in Cape Tribulation, where you get to swim in waterfalls, and walk in the jungle with the second largest biodiversity after the Amazon.

 

 

 

 

3. Visit Darwin for authentic crocodile tours and different Australian sceneries.

 

 

 

 

4. Fly to Queenstown in New Zealand for bungy jumping, hiking and horseback riding in scenery seen on The Lord of The Rings. Don’t forget to try the delicious Ferg Burger. My roommate and I ate one every day when we were in Queenstown. We also loooved the horseback riding and pretty scenery.
