15 Things Everyone Should Do in Australia

Australia is big. Almost as big as the U.S. The USA has a land area of almost 10 million square kilometers. Australia’s land area is almost 7.7 million. That’s a whole LOT to explore. Attempting to see everything in the U.S. on one vacation would be considered insane by most. Likewise, you are not going to see everything in Australia in just a few weeks. But I’m going to make your life easy by giving you my favorite 15 things to do in Australia, so you can more easily find your way around this giant, sunburned land.

    Tasmania (Island state of Australia) has a rich history in convicts, we also have beautiful national parks, beaches, gourmet food, the Tasmanian Devil, the 65km overland track which takes you from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair and can take up to 6 days, the Nut at Stanley, Taste of Tasmania festival, etc. We also have the cleanest air in the world. Next time you’re in Australia, check Tassie out! 🙂

      I live in Melbourne so I really have no excuse to visit. Only the Tasmania Tourism said their primary tourists were old people so…. I didn’t think there was that much to see. I’m happy to be proven wrong. I’ll come soon!
