ENJOYING nature while doing healing, gateway or just an ordinary excursion is commonplace. But what if while on a trip, you can enjoy the ripe fruit of the land just picked to enjoy snorkeling to see marine life that is rarely found?
All of this can be found in Australia, where the natural beauty that spoils your eyes can be accompanied by activities that also indulge your senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing and even make you feel calmer.
Tourism Australia’s South and Southeast Asia regional general manager Brent Anderson said in a statement on Saturday that what Australia’s nature has to offer is simply incomparable, especially in the variety of activities on offer.
“One day you can snorkel with rare marine life and the next, stargaze in a cabin hidden in Australia’s natural beauty,” he said.
Vacationing in Australia is also an opportunity to share local values such as a love for nature and wildlife, as well as a sense of adventure and living in the great outdoors, explains Anderson.
The following are a number of activities in Australia that you can enjoy in October.:
