Australia Vacation Rentals
It may be the smallest continent in the world, but there are plenty of fun things to see and do during your next vacation rental in Australia! With dry deserts, popular beaches, and the infamous rugged Outback, Australia is never at a loss for a fun activity and the local Aussies are always willing to show them to you.
Australia is pretty famous for its kangaroos, the aboriginal people, and the movie Crocodile Dundee. But there is so much more to be found in the Land Down Under. The Great Barrier Reef, on Australia’s east coast, is the world’s largest coral reef and the only living thing visible from space. At over 1,200 miles long, it’s no wonder! And Uluru, also known around the world as Ayer’s Rock, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is considered sacred to the aboriginal people.
Whatever region of Australia you stop by during your vacation rental in Australia, there’s always something particular to that area that is worth the trip. Brisbane is home to Mount Coot, Australia’s tallest mountain (that isn’t even technically a mountain) and a Koala Sanctuary where you can feed and cuddle the sleepy marsupials. Perth attractions include the Aquarium of Western Australia, which features an underwater tunnel where you can spy on turtles, stingrays, and colorful, tropical fish. You can even go snorkeling with sharks if you’re feeling especially daring! And of course Sydney, Australia is home to the world-renowned Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge over Darling Harbour.
For some natural Australian beauty, the city of Cairns is considered the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is home to the world’s first tropical wine region. This relaxed area is surrounded by temperate rainforests and is home to many adventurous activities like skydiving, coastal fishing, and swimming in the lagoon-style pool found in the heart of the city. Alexander, Australia is a prime spot for year-round swimming. Be sure and stop by the nearby Casuarinas Coastal Reserve for some sandy beaches surrounded by gorgeous, rocky cliffs. And, of course, a walkabout in the Australian Outback or surfing the Gold Coast are must-do outdoor Australian activities.
So whether you’re touring Adelaide, the City of Churches, catching an Aussie Rules football game in Melbourne, or, if you’re incredibly lucky, visiting the Prime Minister’s Lodge in Canberra, your vacation rental in Australia will be filled with Koalas, Dingoes, and memories that last a lifetime.
