Happy Australia Day!

This place will always have a special place in my heart, especially after having the chance to study abroad and live in ‘ the land down under ‘ for 6 months.

The country is filled with some of the most beautiful landscapes, sunrises & sunsets, beautiful weather, the most genuine & caring people you will ever meet, & memories & adventures that you will never forget & will last a life time. Not sure how to celebrate this beloved country’s special day?

here are:

10 Things You Need To Do & Include On

Your Australia Adventure:


1.) Spend a few days in Sydney

Tour or catch a show at the Sydney Opera House,

Climb the Sydney Bridge –  ( Do the night climb! You won’t regret it),

Soak up the sun at Bondi Beach – (The most visited beach in the world!).

There is so much to see & do & so much diversity in this charming city.

2.) Do a sunrise hike to the lighthouse in Byron Bay



3.) Hike a mountain, or 2 or 3, 4 & more

You definitely need to add hiking up Mount Warning to the list! Bonus points if you do the sunrise hike. It’s about a 4-5 hour hike in total that you won’t regret! Also, you climb your way to the top by a chainlink fence! How cool is that.

4.) Take in the ocean as much as you can

5.) Koala’s, Kangaroo’s, & Quokka’s Oh My!

Spend a day hanging out with the countries most favorite & unique animals


5.) Scuba & Snorkel The Great Barrier Reef


6.) Camp, sleep, & enjoy exploring around the beach at Fraiser Island

7.) Experience & learn about the Aboriginal culture

8.) Spend a Weekend in Suffers Paradise , also known as ‘ The Gold Coast ‘

Looking for a hostel to stay at: Check out Backpackers In Paradise!



9.) Embrace the outdoors & camp & hike in one of Australia’s National Parks; Girraween National Park



10.) Embrace yourself in the culture, laid back lifestyle, day & nightlife, the food, and learn an Australian chant or two.
My favorite:The true blue drinking game chant/song


No matter where you go or what you do, Australia will always be one of my favorite places through and through.
