5 Unusual Things to Do in Australia

Australia is a land of many wonders, with so many adventures to be had. Activity options range from delighting in the serenity that comes from swimming with dolphins, to kicking the excitement up a gear when you go rally driving. Whatever it is you want to do in the land down under, you will never be short of choices.

Swim with dolphins

Deep sea adventures in Australia are easily accessible, and you can swim in the ocean with these fascinating, stunning creatures in their natural habitat. Swim with wild bottle nose dolphins in Rockingham Bay, where people are taken on a cruise on a dive charter vessel, while enjoying the tropical wonders that surround. This is truly an exhilarating encounter with nature, and will not disappoint either thrill seekers or animal lovers.

Alternatively, experience a wild dolphin swim with Dolphin Swim Australia, where you can interact with the dolphins in their natural environment, enjoying a unique experience underwater. This activity is perhaps one of the most life-changing experiences one can have in Australia. The swims are relatively cheap, as swimmers will be kitted out with a wetsuit, masks and fins, as well as snorkeling equipment. If you’re not up for the swim, you can always board a vessel and watch the dolphins do their thing – an incredible experience either way.

Go Rally Driving

The WRX experience is the top off-road motorsport venue in Australia, and for the adrenaline-junkies out there, it is an experience of a lifetime and an activity not to be missed. If you’re really brave, you can drive one of the many rally cars, or alternatively, feed your need for speed as a passenger. All the precautions have been taken to ensure maximum safety – the vehicles are equipped with a roll cage and racing harnesses. The gravel circuit is 1.2 kilometers, and the fee includes registration and driver briefing, as well as up to 15 lap driving sessions. Drivers will receive a Certificate of Completion, which they can take home with them as proof of the mind-blowing experience. The winner of the course receives a trophy.

Gamble at Melbourne casino

Melbourne has developed a reputation overs the years as ‘the world’s most livable city’, and a large reason for this status is the fact that it is a hub for cultural activities, and also a chief source of the country’s street art.

Besides its burgeoning status as the nation’s cultural capital, Melbourne also provides a smorgasbord of entertainment options for travelers and locals alike. One of the greatest examples of in this regard is the Crown Casino in Melbourne, a casino and entertainment complex, one of the largest entertainment complexes in the world.

At this complex, there are over 500 table games and 2,500 poker machines for gamblers to indulge in. Patrons can also enjoy the most popular table games, including blackjack, craps, baccarat and roulette, among others, as well as an electronic version of roulette, and Rapid Roulette (Crown casino was the first to introduce this).

Weary travelelrs who are too tired to visit the casino can experience the online world of gambling on-the-go with Euro Palace mobile instant play. The casino is available as a downloadable app to their mobile device, and enables them to experience the best of multipleworlds – sightseeing in Melbourne, having fun at the Crown casino, and gaming on the move.

Go white water rafting

For a full day adventure, packed to the brim with excitement and fun, go white water rafting on the Tully river. The Tully is truly one of the most aesthetically beautiful ventures in Australia, as the river is situated against a stunning rainforest, listed as a world heritage site. Rafters do not need any previous experience to enjoy this activity, as it is supervised by a skilled and trained river guide.

Delight in multiple water adventures

For more water adventures, you can hop onto a jet boat with the Paradise Jetboat in Surfers’ paradise for a high-speed adventure. It will feel as though you are on a rollercoaster on the water, as you experience 360 degree spins at super speed, and race around the waters to Couran Cove.

For a more chilled and classy ocean experience, you can go yachting, be a spectator and watch the many national yachting events taking place, or take a course on sailing. Alternatively, you could go kite surfing in Queensland, where there is the opportunity to delight in kite surfing with an Australian Kite Surfari.
