5 Adventure Holiday Activities in Australia
For some people, a holiday isn’t a holiday until they’re perched on a sun-lounge by a pool, sipping a cocktail and reading a novel. Others prefer their holidays to come with a side of cultural education, so for them, the perfect holiday includes traipsing through exotic souks in Morocco or chilling out with Buddhist monks in Thailand. Others still like to get their adrenalin pumping while they’re on holiday (incidentally, these are the people who should make sure they have comprehensive travel insurance before they leave!) and it’s for these people that we’ve put together this article on ways they can get their blood pumping in Australia. If you’re the kind of person who isn’t having fun until they’re hanging upside-down from something, then this list is for you. Whether you’re riding ATVs on Stradbroke Island or jumping out of a plane over Byron Bay, these activities are sure to get your adrenalin racing!
New Zealand may have invented the sport, but we Aussies do a pretty good job of it as well. The best bungee jumping is to be had in truly beautiful environments, and there’s no better place to act like Tarzan than in the tropical rainforest of Cairns. Book in a jump and feel the steamy air rush through your hair as you swing off a bridge by your feet.
For most people, throwing themselves out of a plane is the last thing on earth they can imagine themselves doing on holiday. Still, a growing number of people are clamoring to experience the sensation and thrill of skydiving, and if you’re one of those people, then there’s no better place to do it than over the lush farmland and breathtaking ocean of Byron Bay.
Want to fly through the air with the greatest of ease? Sydney’s Trapeze School will help you at least half-way, with their incredibly fun trapeze classes. You’ll get up to dizzying heights and even try a ‘grab’ with one of the trapeze instructors—what fun!
If you like your adventure sports with four wheels underneath you, a four-wheel motorbike tour or ATV adventure over sand dunes is the perfect way to get your heart pumping and explore some local scenery at the same time. Whether you do it on the open dunes of sandy Stradbroke Island or in the red centre of Australia with camels and kangaroos in the background, you’re in for a treat.
Normal surfing not challenging enough for you? Why not try it with a giant kite strapped to your body for maximum air? Kite surfing is a growing trend in Australia, and on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, where surfing is an art form, you’ll be in great company as you try out your new skills.

Online education is also a great invention which comes with the help of information technology and online degree programs.
