4. Stand Up Boarding

Location: Australia Wide - Along Popular Coastal Areas.

Whether you're a beginner or advanced at water sports. Stand Up Paddle Boarding is for everyone, all ages, and all fitness abilities. The only thing is you might need a little bit of balance to stand up otherwise, you can always have a nice tanning session whilst afloat on the beautiful and glistening water. 

This activity is available in almost all beach areas along the Eastern Coastline of Australia, our personal favorite stand up paddle spot is along Airlie Beach riding past the pristine white sand beaches. 

5. White Water Rafting 

Location: Tully River, Queensland

One of the most popular water rafting rivers in Australia holds home to incredibly fun adventure rapids. The Tully River is situated among ancient and world heritage-protected rainforest that features steep-walled gorges of basalt rock, and some of the oldest trees in the entire world.

This scenery makes for an amazing backdrop to your adventure packed white water rafting experience. 

6. Shark Cage Diving

A once in a lifetime experience viewing great white sharks in their natural habitat. Located at the Southern end of Australia in Port Lincoln, this shark cage diving experience is "the only one-day shark cage diving operator who is permitted to use natural fish to attract the Great White Sharks". You don't even need a diver qualification or prior experience, you can simply climb aboard this licensed government and Eco-certified experience.
