A road trip across the country is one of the most fun things you can do when vacationing in Australia. But the question here is, what should you do on your hypothetical road trip. Let’s take a look at a few of the most interesting things to do in the land down under.

Hit the Pokies

The pokies, or slots, are a huge part of the Australian gambling culture. Revenue generated from the Australian gambling industry makes up more than 7% of the country’s taxation revenue and more than 4% of Australian adults have said that they play the pokies regularly (meaning once a week).

Tourists will often travel to one of the several Australian casinos and try their own luck at the pokies. Better yet, thanks to the advancements in computer and information technology, both tourists and Australian residents can now play pokies online for real money in Australia, on one of the various online casinos available in the country.

This means that you can try your luck in the casino, all the while experiencing some other great activities that the country has to offer. For example, …

See the Sites

As is the case when visiting any country that boasts natural beauties, you will want to take a road trip to some of the most famous natural sites that Australia has to offer. The Great Barrier Reef is a must-see when visiting the country. It is the only landmark on Earth that can be seen from space, and it boasts some of the most extraordinary corals and marine flora in the world.

Uluru is another landmark largely associated with Australia. A holy site of the Australian indigenous tribes, the monolithic mountain can be climbed by risk-takers and adrenaline chasers visiting the country.

These, and many more natural sites await to be explored by tourists and Australian residents alike, so definitely don’t miss out on the beauty that resides within the country.

Chill at the Beach

After a long day of sightseeing and the pokies, what can be better than wrapping it all up with a long and relaxing time chilling by the ocean. Australia boasts some truly gorgeous and fabulous beaches. Whether you are the extrovert who wants to be around people or the introvert who wants to spend some time alone, the country has you covered.

You can go to one of the many tourist beaches filled with bars, people, and beach-related tourist attractions, or you can find one of the more secluded areas, that only the lucky few are aware of and relax by the ocean with a drink in hand. Either way, you are guaranteed a good time when visiting an Australian beach.
