From incredible sculptures to swimming with seals, sharks and tuna. This is Australian Traveller’s list of 100 Great Things To Do In Australia You’ve Never Heard Of . . . By The AT Team
Overwhelming feedback from our seminal 100 Things To Do In Australia Before You Die led us to think we’d missed something: sure, we had all the big icons covered, but what about the underrated and unknown?
These are the experiences we as Australians value and love about this amazing, sometimes bizarre, continent. We figured we’re always coming across something fascinating we’ve never heard of before, why not share it with the world?
Once again our esteemed panellists got right into the spirit of the exercise, plucking the best and brightest from an original list of hundreds and hundreds of great nominations from around the country. They deserve our hearty thanks, because by its very nature this was a far trickier task than identifying Australia’s major icons, since no one panellist had heard of even a fraction of the attractions offered. But if it sounded intriguing and their reactions led them to exclaim, “now that I’d like to see,” then there was a fair chance that you, the reader, would agree.
The result is a fun, fascinating, wonderful eye-opener of a bible to some of the historic, mythic, incredible hidden corners of Australia.
As always, please send us any Great Things you think we’ve missed.
See you out there,
The Australian Traveller Team
