Take biking tour, or motorcycle rides through the beautiful fall scenery or opt for kayaking or zip-lining for some adventure. Expect some rain and pack accordingly with lots of layers and waterproof clothing.

Litchfield National Park

The Northern territory’s stunning Litchfield National Park has plenty of thundering falls, and refreshing plunge pools will tempt you to stay awhile and breathe in the peace of the surrounding monsoon forest. Visit historic ruins from pioneering days, wander and follow the waterfall walkways and gaze in wonder at enormous termite mounds that dot the landscape. Also, don’t miss soar above the Lost City on a scenic helicopter flight and joining a multi-day tour of the park’s highlights.

Ski Season

The ski slopes in the Alpine region of Victoria’s High Country is the site of the state’s ski resorts, while the New South Wales is in the Snowy Mountains approximately south-southwest of Canberra, you’ll find ski slopes in Tasmania, too.

When you’re not skiing in Tasmania, you can challenge the infamous Franklin River on a white-water rafting expedition. Cruise down the majestic Gordon River and hike past 1000-year-old Huon pines in one of the world’s last temperate rainforests for a real taste of this rugged corner of Australia.
