The Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'
Great Barrier Reef
Australia’s famous Great Barrier Reef needs no introduction and occupies pride of place at the top of most visitors’ must-see list. The amazing reef (the largest in the world) is made up of over 3,000 separate reef systems and dozens of beautiful, inviting tropical islands surrounded by azure waters teeming with marine life. You can access this wonderland from several coastal cities, including Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, and Mackay. Activities at the Great Barrier Reef are generally centered on the amazing marine life, which draws snorkelers and scuba divers – if you prefer to keep your feet dry, you can join a tour on a glass-bottomed boat instead. Boating, sailing, scenic helicopter flips, and simply relaxing on the beach complete the picture.
Sydney Opera House
You don’t have to be a music lover to enjoy a visit to the iconic Sydney Opera House, an architectural masterpiece (and one of the worlds’ most recognized buildings), which enjoys pride of place on Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour, opposite the equally famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. There are several different ways to explore the Opera House – you can choose from a variety of guided tours with or without added dining options, including the really fascinating Back Stage Tour, which is presented daily at 7:00am. Children can also learn all about the opera house on a special Junior Adventure Tour. Music lovers should not miss the chance to experience a live performance at this esteemed venue.
The Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road region of Victoria is where you can embark on the famous Great Ocean Road Scenic Drive, a brilliant 413-mile adventure along the magnificent coastline of southern Australia. The route stretches from the town of Torquay (90 minutes from Melbourne) to Nelson, on the south Australian border. You can complete the route in 3 days, but allowing yourself 5 or even 7 days will give you more time to enjoy the wide variety of exciting activities available en route. Highlights of your tour could include renting a bike and cycling along the rugged seashore, donning hiking boots and exploring waterfalls and forests, going on a zip-line tour or simply enjoying the incredible coastal scenery and the wonderful restaurants along the way.
