Australia remains one of the best countries in the world for adventure travel, whether it’s snorkeling and scuba diving, or hiking and golf, all with a touch of luxury and exclusive access.
For fishing enthusiasts, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef beckons. Kekoa offers personalized fishing charters and partners with local superyacht firms. Or, travelers can head south to Tasmania to learn fly-fishing with award-winning experts and enjoy a customized stay at Driftwater’s homestead and luxurious suites. Enjoy fishing waters that are home to coveted wild brown and rainbow trout, including rivers and lakes as well as wading and boat fishing.
In the Northern Territory’s remote Arnhem Land region, multi-day adventures offer barramundi fishing, fly-fishing, and mud-crabbing. At Dhipirri Barra & Sportfishing Lodge, northeast of Darwin, the lodge’s chef will expertly prepare your catch.
There are high-energy hikes including the Seven Peaks Walk on Lord Howe Island, off the New South Wales coast, where guests can scale clifftops and snorkel in world-class reefs on a six-night, five-day guided hike across the World Heritage-listed island.
Cradle Mountain Huts Walk in Tasmania showcases Tassie’s pristine wilderness and animals, following the world-famous Overland Track through Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park’s ancient temperate rain forests and alpine meadows.
Swim, snorkel, and scuba dive the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Marine Park with Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo, based halfway up Western Australia’s coastline. Swimming with whale sharks, the world’s largest fish, during their migration from March to August is a must do and one for all ages. Adventurers ages six and up can dive right in.
On South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, Australian Coastal Safaris offers ocean odysseys, including the two-day, two-night Port Lincoln Underwater Weekend Adventure, where guests can swim with Australian sea lions. Those who are game can brave cage-diving with great white sharks off the Neptune Islands for an up-close encounter with one of the world’s most feared and misunderstood predators.
Snorkel the spectacular Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns with Dreamtime Dive & Snorkel, whose on-board marine biologist and Aboriginal sea rangers provide eco-certified diving and snorkeling safaris, and a deep knowledge of the reef’s diverse ecosystem and its connection to Indigenous culture.
Sand Dune Adventures offers quad-biking tours of Stockton Beach dunes – the largest coastal sand dunes in the southern hemisphere – north of Sydney in the Port Stephens region. Led by local Aboriginal guides, the tour gives travelers exclusive access to Aboriginal land.
Thrill-seeking golfers can experience the Barnbougle & King Island Like a Pro tour with charter-flight company Air Adventure Australia. Travelers can island-hop in a private jet to Tasmania’s north east coastline and play four of Tassie’s best courses: Barnbougle Lost Farm Golf Links, Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links, and King Island’s spectacular Cape Wickham Links and Ocean Dunes golf course.
Or, venture to the outback Nullarbor Links course, the longest course in the world, spanning almost 850 miles and two states.
