Travelling within Australia is often a matter of knowing the right places to choose for the real experience. This is something that can be enormously hard to get right, especially if you have not spent much time getting around this vast continent. But there are a number of locations within Australia which will be ideal for anyone wishing to explore in-country – and visitors to Australia will find that these provide the perfect Aussie experience too. In this post, we are going to look at some of the locations within Australia which will provide the ideal true Australian experience, for Aussies and tourists alike.
The Sunshine Coast is one of the most-visited parts of the country, and a top coastal tourist destination globally. However, despite the large number of visitors it receives, it remains a truly Australian area with very little tourist influence or corruption. It is in many ways the ideal location for your archetypal beach holiday, and you do indeed see people from all over the world visiting for this very purpose. From Mooloolaba and Maroochydore all the way up to Noosa Heads, you have your choice of a range of beautiful beaches and somewhat sleep coastal towns. Noosa itself, at the very head of the coast, is an ideal location for visiting further afield, including taking trips out to Fraser Island on a Sunshine Coast tour. It’s a true Australian experience which everyone can get behind – especially if you are a keen surfer, sunbather or seafood enthusiast.
Again, it is obviously one of the more popular Australian destinations, but even many Aussies don’t really know how to find the lesser-known and less-touristy areas and experience within Sydney. This stunning city will blow away any new visitors, but there are areas which are significantly truer to the Aussie way of life, and those are what we are concerned with here. The truth is, going to the outskirts of the city are where you will find the real deal, and fortunately enough you can usually find tours to take you to the right places. For the real city experience, there is nowhere better.
The sheer vastness and unknowable quality of the outback is enough to make most visitors swoon. But for the more experience, or for Australians keen to see a little more of the country, there are many ways to enjoy the outback in a safe and orderly manner which will nonetheless provide a great experience. Again, one of the best ways to do this is to take a tour, and there are many of those to look out for. A great example is the Delta Downs Station Tour, which will be a great way of getting used to the conditions out in the harsh outback, and of meeting the real people who live there every day. There are few better ways to experience the real Australian life than touring the outback in this way, whether you are an Australian yourself or a keen tourist.
