Summers in Australia: Two Unique Outdoor Adventures Our Homeland Offers

I don’t know about you, but every year, as soon as November ends, I begin to feel this strong desire for outdoor adventures, which explains why I’m constantly looking for unique events and places to visit. What can I say, the summer sun’s promise of fun and unforgettable experiences is something I could never resist. If you too like to spend your summers enriching your life with new experiences, then I believe you’ll love the following two amazing summer adventures I picked for you.

Scuba Dive the Great Barrier Reef

Comprised of more than three thousand individual reef systems and hundreds of breathtaking tropical islands with sun-kissed, paradise-like beaches, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef, one of Australia’s extraordinary natural wonders, and every scuba enthusiast’s dream destination. Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef means having the precious opportunity to spot and have a close encounter with some of its incredible residents, such as marine turtles (including olive ridley, leatherback, and green turtles), dolphins, and humpback whales. Visiting this place is without any doubt a one-of-a-kind experience.

If you choose to explore this rich underwater world but you haven’t had the chance to scuba dive before, then I advise you to take a nice scuba diving course and learn how to swim and breathe properly through a face mask. Your preparations should also include looking for high-quality scuba gear for sale. A careful and responsible diver will never enter the waters of this unique ecosystem without a mask, an exposure suit, and a scuba unit that consists of a tank, a regulator, and a buoyancy control device. If you worry that you might not make the right choice for you when looking for scuba gear for sale, then you should definitely consult with a professional diver before you purchase any item of scuba diving equipment.

Attend the Woodford Folk Festival

If you want to spend six days filled with music, art, and movies, then you must give this famous event a chance. Every year, from December 27th to January 1st, Queensland’s small town of Woodford becomes a place where thousands of artists come together to entertain and inspire the guests and where carefree laughter and community spirit reign. From live concerts and acoustic jams, to comedy sessions and craft workshops, I’m more than sure you’ll find something to enjoy.

Aside from these fun activities, the festival programme features insightful social and environmental dialogues and debates which will expand your horizons and help you become a better person. It’s an event you will never forget.
