While you can spend weeks or months sightseeing and enjoying the great country of Australia, for some of us that really isn’t practical.
That doesn’t mean you should shy away from a quick vacation at this great “land down under.” In fact, Australia offers a slew of memorable opportunities for those that just have 48 hours to give. Here are some ideas to get you thinking:
- Hamilton Island, an extremely popular spot on the Great Barrier Reef is the perfect destination for anyone looking to truly relax. It features palm-fringed beaches, amazing restaurants and some of the most stylish resorts that will make the quick trip truly amazing. In addition, there is some great golf as some rejuvenating spas.
- If you are more into sight-seeing on your quick getaway, Blue Mountains in New South Whales is for sure a great option. Here you will experience views across blue-tinged valleys as well as great walking tracks, cool-climate gardens, incredible lookouts and restaurants you won’t find anywhere else.
- Tucked into Queensland you will find the hidden jewel known as Noosa. Here not only will you find incredible weather and scenery but world-class food, wine, shopping and tours for all types of interests. Don’t forget to go for a swim at Noosa’s iconic Main Beach. It is one of Australia’s premier beach locations and an ideal spot to learn how to surf!
- If cycling is your thing you will for sure want to pay a quick visit to Adelaide, especially during the Santos Tour Down Under. During this tour you will have the ability ride from the northern suburbs into rolling wheat fields and green vineyards of the Barossa Valley. Along this great ride you will have the opportunity to take in some fine dining featuring incredible wines, meats and cheeses.
As you can see you can still have an amazing time in the great land down under even with only a short time-frame. Book a flight, land at the airport and hire a Budget car rental. Before you know it you will be enjoying some great vacationing!
