1. Jungle Surfing at Cape Tribulation

The hard thing is when your sitting on the platform is to push yourself off and to trust that your harness is going to hold you. I’ve started to realise now how freaked out of heights I am. – Tommy-elaine

2. Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef

I hung out in school after school of fish, captivated again and again. I saw sea creatures I had never even imagined, and was shocked at the way they allowed me into their world without hesitation. – Charliekelli

3. Cruising Whitsunday Islands

We spend two nights aboard a maxi round the world racing boat. It’s been made a bit more tour group friendly since racing days but it’s a real hands on experience. – Denzilandthedoc

4. Gold Coast Theme Parks

We went to a car stunt show that was impressive and cheesy and a couple other attractions which were great – but the best one was the Superman rollercoaster! – Andyandkirstine

5. Climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge

Once we climbed the four sets of ladders, which were situated between the two outer lanes of traffic (quite unnerving) we were stood on the top arch of the Harbour Bridge.- Danandhat

6. Skiing in the Victorian Alps

It was so slippery and was hard to balance. But the little kids skiing makes it look so easy. – Bluesummit

7. Rafting down the King River

All went off without a hitch and we were soon cruising, me at the helm down the gorge at a rate of a very few knots. – Hottubtour

8. Traveling the Great Ocean Road

The 12 Apostles is by far the most photographed attraction on the Great Ocean Road and that’s what it’s famous for, is the limestone formations caused by the wind and the waves. – Cmukon

9. Shopping in Melbourne

Melbourne has a reputation for really good food and good shopping and several different hot spots for both, so I checked out this area first and had a great meal. – Slpbls

10.Port Arthur Ghost Tour

It was a great experience as we found out about the lives of the ‘ghosts’, and a little bit of the history of the site. – Tina_campbell
