Must-Do Activities In Australia

In the Great Barrier Reef – the world’s largest coral reef system – you and your family can swim into the deepest parts (with a guide of course) and if you wait long, you will be joined by friendly sharks. The shallow areas of the reef are recommended for first time divers. By swimming in the Great Barrier Reef, we suggest you do a little research on the types of sharks that you may encounter and share some of those knowledge to your child. And if you’re lucky enough, sharks aren’t the only sea creatures you will find. The Great Barrier Reef also contains sea turtles and clown fish that can easily be distinguished thanks to the film “Finding Nemo”.

Suggestion: If you have decided to enjoy the sea life in Australia, prep your family for these heavy activities. A month before the trip, make sure that they are active and eating healthy. The swimming activities might not be preferable for children under 8 years old.

How About Flying?

Must-Do Activities In Australia

You might be thinking about the airplane trip which can be counted under this category. But we’re actually talking about the indoor skydiving experience in Gold Coast. Since you are travelling with the children, real sky diving shouldn’t be an option for now. But in iFly’s indoor Skydiving, you can share that experience with your child without falling from a thousand feet high.

It’s pretty simple actually. The operators guide you in a safe glass tunnel, teach you some movements to keep your balance while on air, and then you’re up. This activity is a good preparation tool for adults who plan to try the actual skydiving experience.  Your children are surely going to be addicted.

Travelling with children means parents have to tune down the extravagance of the activity, preferring the safest ones. But in Australia, you do not need to sacrifice that much because some of these activities are fun whether you are an adult or a child.

Here are some additional tips to make sure your child enjoys the plane ride:
