Here Are 5 Activities To Do In Australia During Spring.
1. Explore Sydney’s beachside sculpture park
Sydney is a spectacular sight in spring. Blanketing the city are beautiful purple Jacaranda blossoms. The town of Grafton even has a festival dedicated to these flowering plants! While you’re there, take a scenic coastal stroll from Bondi to Tamarama and witness the makeover as artists showcase over a hundred brilliant sculpture pieces for the Sculpture by the Sea Festival.
2. See Western Australia’s colourful wildflower trail
In the springtime, many parts of the country, particularly Western Australia, are transformed by wildflowers in full bloom. Frolic through carpets of dainty smokebush, tiny crimson myrtles, fiery mountain bells and over 150 varieties of orchids. If you’re up for a food experience, head on to Margaret River for the Western Australian Gourmet Escape
3. Turn up your adventurous side in Tasmania
Springtime in Tasmania brings in a mix of summer and winter. It’s the perfect season for an exciting multi-day hike. Take the Three Capes Track to walk through coastal heath in flower and spot migrating whales out at sea. During the spring equinox, head outside for a chance to see the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) as it lights up the night sky. If you’re looking for adventure, grab a raft and start paddling as you head towards the Franklin River. You can also take a relaxing boat cruise to Bruny Island!
4. Go waterhole hopping around Darwin
Spring in the south of Australia coincides with the end of the north’s dry season. Enjoy birdwatching in Kakadu and view ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries. Have an up-close and personal encounter with Australia’s iconic Saltwater Crocodiles in Crocosaurus Cove or swim in Katherine’s waterholes and thermal springs. You can then cool off under magnificent cascading waterfalls.
5. Discover culinary masterpieces near Adelaide
Known as the ‘festival city’, it’s easy to find a party in Adelaide and all over the surrounding wine regions. Get the perfect selfie backdrop when you visit Clare Valley and its endless hills of Canola that burst into blooms of gold in springtime. The area also has 30 wineries where you can have a taste of excellent riesling. Have up-close wildlife encounters and eat fresh, locally grown produce at Kangaroo Island.
