A Guide to Spending 1 Month in Australia

Australia is the perfect place to travel for a month. You can see a lot of the country, and it’s affordable. The only question is how to fit all of your favourite destinations into just one month. The following are some ideas for your one-month staying in Australia:

Spend time in the Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains National Park is a natural wonder that’s just a two-hour train ride outside Sydney. The mountains are a world apart—a lush, green wilderness with its very own microclimate. There are plenty of things to see and do in the park, but the best way to experience it is by hiking along one of its many trails. Here you can explore old-growth forests, listen to birds chirp at dawn and dusk, watch koalas snooze in eucalyptus trees, and even spot kangaroos bounding through rocky outcrops.

The Three Sisters—a trio of steep rock formations known as Katoomba Falls—are another must-see attraction in this area. These picturesque waterfalls are located on Scenic World Road. They’re best viewed during winter when there are fewer tourists around (for some reason).

In addition to these natural wonders, don’t be surprised if you happen upon some otherworldly beauty: glowworms. They’re bright blue insects that hang from cave ceilings like tiny Christmas lights and at night they emit light so bright it almost looks like daylight inside the caves where they live.

Visit Rockhampton

Rockhampton is a great place to visit, and the best part is that you don’t have to stay in a hotel. If you’re looking for a longer stay, serviced apartments are the perfect solution.

With Rockhampton serviced apartments, you can get all the perks of a home without having to deal with the hassle of renting furniture or finding a new place when your lease is up. You’ll have access to all the amenities of a hotel—like housekeeping service and laundry facilities—without having to leave your apartment. So whether you’re visiting Rockhampton for business or pleasure, staying in a serviced apartment is the ideal way to make sure that your trip is comfortable, convenient, and stress-free.

Surf at Manly Beach

If you are looking to learn how to surf, Manly Beach is one of the best places in Australia to do it. It has waves that are suitable for beginners, and there is a good number of schools that offer lessons. There are also plenty of people who want to share their knowledge with you if you’re just starting out. The best time of year for surfing at Manly is during summer (December through February). You can rent or buy surfboards from one of many shops around town; if you don’t have your own yet, we recommend buying one because it’ll save time later on when you’re ready to go out on your own.

Visit Port Douglas

Port Douglas is a town in Queensland, Australia and the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. It’s located in the dry tropics of the northern part of the state and is a popular tourist destination. This tropical paradise has many beautiful beaches and the best Port Douglas holiday villa, including Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. There are also plenty of outdoor activities for you to enjoy if you’re looking for something to do outside of your hotel room. The entire region is known for its thriving tourism industry thanks to its natural beauty, warm weather year-round and abundance of things to do.

Join a holiday ownership club

The perfect way to experience the best of Australia is through a holiday ownership club (such as club Wyndham Australia). Here’s how it works.

Firstly, you pay a fee to join and then buy into a property or property. You can invest in as few as one property or many more; it all depends on your budget and how much time you plan to spend in Australia.

Secondly, while you are using one of these properties, you pay a monthly fee that allows you access to any other properties within the same holiday ownership club at no additional cost. This means that if there’s another member who owns an apartment with two bedrooms that isn’t being used by them, they can offer their spare room for rent (for example). Then when it comes time for them to use their own apartment again later in life, they’ll offer up this spare bedroom instead. It’s great because everyone makes money off each other’s unused space while also making new friends from around the world who share similar interests.

Enjoy a winery and wildlife tour in Hunter Valley

If you’re travelling through Australia, Hunter Valley is a must-see. It’s located just over an hour northeast of Sydney and is home to over 100 wineries—the oldest winery in Australia, Lindemans, was established there in 1797. Hunter Valley also has the largest winery in the country—Mount View Estate Winery.

Spend a day on Fraser Island

Fraser Island is a great place to see wildlife and do some exciting activities. It’s also very beautiful, so you can just spend time looking at the scenery if that’s your thing. If you’re into camping, fishing or just taking in the beauty of nature, this island is perfect for you. You can take a tour around the island by bus or 4WD vehicle. Be careful though because there are jellyfish in the water and they’ll sting you.

Enjoy a traditional Australian barbecue near Brisbane

A barbecue is an important part of Australian culture, and it’s not just for families. You’ll find that many people have barbecues in their backyards to socialize with friends or colleagues. If you’re looking for a fun way to meet new people, consider inviting some locals over for a backyard barbecue this month.

If you don’t have access to a grill at home or in the park, there are plenty of restaurants that serve delicious barbecued meats. Be sure to bring your own food and drinks if you plan on attending one of these events—there’s no point in paying extra when all you need is already packed into your suitcase.

Go scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef

If you’re looking to do something different while in Australia, consider signing up for a scuba diving excursion on the Great Barrier Reef. The world’s largest coral reef system, it is made up of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands located off the coast of Queensland. It is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Diving in this massive underwater haven offers an incredible experience that you won’t soon forget.

Party on Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is a popular tourist destination in Queensland. It’s a short ferry ride from Townsville, so it’s the perfect weekend getaway from the city without having to travel very far. If you’re looking for something luxurious and relaxing, Magnetic Island will be right up your alley.

The island has many things to do for all types of travelers such as snorkeling, kayaking, dolphin watching—the list goes on. There are also many different places to stay including resorts or hostels if you’re looking for something cheaper than staying in a hotel.


In conclusion, Australia is a country that is well worth exploring. With so much to do and see, it’s hard to know where exactly to start. But if you follow this guide and plan ahead for your trip, there’s no doubt that you will have an unforgettable experience.
