The National Portrait Gallery is a great way to spend the day if you’re wanting to spend the day indoors and learn about some amazing Australians. With fascinating Australians such as 'Queen Rose’ of the Wathaurung People, Florrie Forde and Barry Humphries featured, this is one trip that will educate you on some outstanding Aussies and make you proud to be Australian.
Bike rides can be one of the most fun ways to explore any city, and with Adelaide Free Bikes, Adelaide makes it easy for you. So if you’re Adelaide bound, grab your helmet and get peddling.
There are few things more iconically Australian than the Great Barrier Reef. So when in Queensland and considering how to spend your Australia Day, this is a great option if you have the time and your budget allows. Picture yourself swimming with Nemo and Dory who can commonly be found exploring the reef.
The are few places more beautiful than Cradle Mountain in Tassie. Just a 2.5 hour drive from Launceston, you can easily take a day trip to explore this Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Depending on how active you’re feeling you can go on a hike and take in ancient plants and if you’re lucky you might spot a Tasmanian Devil. If hiking is not your thing, pack a picnic and spend your Australia Day kicking back and relaxing in nature.
