Adventures & Attractions

From big city tourist attractions to remote natural wonders, there is always something to see and do.

 

The cities have big attractions built to draw in tourists, but there are also serendipitous surprises just busting to be uncovered. For example, if you need to use the toilet in while shopping on Collins Street in Melbourne, use the one on the 35th floor of the Sofitel and enjoy a lovely view of the city.

 

Attractions out in the middle of nowhere can be just as spectacular, such as the famous Uluru, Wave Rock in Western Australia or the lesser known Head of the Bight.

 

While you are off the beaten track, lace up your hiking boots and go on an adventure. There are heaps of hiking opportunities and bushland to explore. Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to find your own little piece of paradise.
