Everyone thinks about sun, love and the beach when it comes to summer. But what can Australia offer you in the summer months? Grab a pen and make notes, because here are five best things to do during summer, Down Under!
Grab a Beer and Head for Barefoot Bowls.
You may have heard that Australians love their sport. This one isn’t physically demanding it more of a get together for a laugh and a beer. Bowls clubs were originally just reserved for the senior citizens however in recent years barefoot bowls has become the summer activity of choice.
You will find that most bowls clubs will have designated times that you and some friends just drop by for some barefoot bowls. You just slip off your shoes, grab a drink (at prices from the 1970s) and try to not let the alcohol affect your game
Wildflowers are abundant in Australia and it’s almost unbelievable that something so beautiful could grow from its own volition without any help from man. Witness the beauty of the wildflowers that are unique to this wonderful country.
Most of Australia’s best wildflowers are found in Western Australia; which is what’s so remarkable about these little guys. Despite Western Australia being notorious for some of the harshest weather and climate in the whole of Australia, the wildflowers found in WA are strong enough to withstand the tough conditions – thus it perfectly displays the Aussie battler spirit.
While Australia’s wildflowers are the best during spring, they’re still going strong throughout summer. So quickly visit them before they disappear during the autumn and winter months!
Just Have A Classic Aussie Backyard Barbie
Sometimes it’s just the simple stuff that make a great aussie summer, whether you’re a local or a traveller, having a classic backyard barbie is what summer’s all about. So chuck your favourite sausages or prawns on the grill and enjoy a beer with friends and family!
However, please be aware of gas smoker safety , beware of leaking gas and ensure that the BBQ gas bottle is always well taken care of!
Stay safe, experience a great summer and create truly memorable Aussie memories!
Head to The Park for A Movie
In summer there nothing like heading to open-air movies. All the cities around Australia offer it however it variety of the locations is what makes it special. In Melbourne you have the option of sitting back on the grass of the Royal Botanic Gardens or taking in the sunset whilst at the rooftop cinemas.
We recommend a BYO beanbag or picnic rug to get comfy. Drop by the local supermarket and pick up some movie snacks and a bottle of wine, otherwise you can also grab something for the food trucks surrounding it
Go Cliffside for A Few Kms
The coastal track from Coogee to Bondi is a picturesque pleasure. Not only will it the 6km track help you burn off the excessive beers, lattes & seafood it is packed with so much to do. There are plenty of rock pools, hidden beaches, parks & picnic stops to stop. Most of the walk is cliffside pathways. Finish off our walk with a true Aussie lunch, fish and chips on the beach, just don’t forget the tomato sauce!
Australia is a playground for those you love the great outdoors, from the beaches, to the rainforest to having a picnic cliffside along the Coogee trail. Ditch the tour bus and find out what us locals get up to. It is best way to really get amongst an Aussie Summer
