Check them out and enjoy!
Exploring Central Australia
Central Australia also has a lot to offer – especially in terms of enchanting natural wonders that’ll undoubtedly take your breath away. Even though the majority of people think of scorching heat, unbearable weather and an air conditioner running all day long whenever anyone mentions Central Australia, the fact is that it isn’t like that at all. Of course, that’s the case with summer months, but a true Aussie would know that winter in Central Australia is actually mild. This means that it can get really cool at night but it’s still pleasant throughout the day. This is exactly why you should go for a hiking trip around Uluru and Alice Springs during winter, so don’t skip it under any circumstances.
… As well as going for a road trip is always a good idea
Road trips have always been extremely popular among Aussies, and if you’re a huge fan too, make sure to organise one this winter! First of all, you should pick a realistic route, which is an essential step if you want your road trip to go as planned. You should know that Australia is quite huge (even though it probably doesn’t seem so), which is why you should pick one route and stick to it. You can explore either the west coast, driving from Perth to Broome, or the east coast, driving from Cairns to Brisbane, which is one of the most popular routes in the Land Down Under. There’s also the Pacific highway route which stretches between the two largest cities in Australia – Sydney and Brisbane. You won’t make a mistake whichever you pick!
You can also explore Sydney’s main indoor attractions
If you haven’t seen Sydney’s main indoor attractions, it’s about time you changed that! Winter is certainly the perfect time to do it, so come up with a detailed itinerary in advance and let your sightseeing tour kick off. You can start in Darling Harbour by admiring unusual sea creatures at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and checking out Aussie animals in WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. Then hop on the ferry over to Manly and head straight to Sydney Tower Eye at Westfield for the most breathtaking panoramic view of the city. You can also expand your knowledge in places like the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Nicholson Museum. We assure you that you’ll have a great time no matter what you choose.
An amazing BBQ party will do the trick, too
On the other hand, if you prefer spending quality time with your friends and family members, you should probably throw an amazing BBQ party. No matter if you decide to stay in your backyard or find an appropriate spot on the beach or in the woods near your home, throwing such a party has always been a fantastic way to have fun, eat delicious food and catch up with your loved ones. Of course, one of the most important tasks is getting the meat, so find a trusty butcher, before anything else. You should pay close attention to your environment too, so make sure to take safety precautions seriously and you’ll undoubtedly nail the organisation like a true pro!
Christmas celebration in July? Why not!
Globetrotters from the Northern Hemisphere who have celebrated Christmas in Australia at least once definitely know that Christmas isn’t the same here. There is no snow at all and the overall festive atmosphere is radically different, which is exactly why they claim that spending the day at the beach isn’t really what Christmas should feel like. So, if you’re an Aussie who wants to experience the real, snowy Christmas, why wouldn’t you celebrate it in July? It may sound silly, but the coldest months will turn your hometown into a real winter wonderland and therefore allow you to feel the unique Christmas spirit. A hot cup of mulled wine will make this experience even better, so give it a try and you’ll love it!
As you can see, there are a lot of ways to have fun and spend quality time – even during winter. Just make sure to bear our suggestions in mind and you’ll embark on a new adventure which will bring you brand new memories that’ll last a lifetime, and that’s exactly what matters most!
Dont forget to always bring along your Koalabi boots, to have your adventure in style and comfort.
