Footy in the MCG - Australia

Footy in the MCG

Aussie Rules

If there was only one thing you could experience of the Australian culture I would suggest you to attend a game of Aussie Rules Football. Best place to see this spectacle is definitely The Melbourne Cricket Ground. When I was in Melbourne they were renovating the MCG, so there was a good view of the city too. Even if you don't like football a game of Aussie Rules is a must. The whole atmosphere in the stadium is fantastic.

Equipment: Bring some money for a beer and a sausage roll.

Directions: Close to the city centre of Melbourne.

Having lunch on a very small beach - Australia

Having lunch on a very small beach

Sea kayaking

The best place to go sea kayaking would be in Broome. The water here is crystal clear, you have the chance to see sea turtles and you are constantly looking at the stunning ocre colours of the cliffs on Gantheaume Point. So if you're done beach bumming on Cable Beach book a kayak trip for some action.

Equipment: Just bring a towel, bathing suit and a camera. The rest will be provided.

Theme: Kayaking/Canoeing

Horse Races

Australians love to gamble and the races in Broome is one place where there is a possibility. During the right season there are horse races here every Saturday. Bet on your favourite horse and you might win some. People really dress up in all sort of creations. Here I captured some locals and some of the organisation.

Directions: On Gantheaume Point in Broome.

Theme: Other

Kitt back in the boat after diving Ningaloo Reef - Australia

Kitt back in the boat after diving Ningaloo Reef

Scuba diving

All over Australia you have the possibility to go scuba diving. The Great Barrier Reef on the East Coast is probably the most popular place to go (and learn how) scuba diving. All over the east coast you have the possibility to do so. On the West Coast you've got the Ningaloo Reef, with a lot of rare species of hard coral. Best places for diving here are Exmouth and Coral Bay. I particularly enjoyed Coral Bay. There are a couple of dive sites here that aren't very deep, but so very beautiful. The colours of the coral are very diverse and you sometimes feel like being in that kids tv cartoon the snorkels. Brilliant. There are also possibilities for diving in Perth and the jetty in Busselton. For someting very exclusive you can dive on the South Coast of Australia to try and see the leafy sea dragons that are very rare. As you can see many opportunities.

Equipment: You don't have to bring your own diving equipment, since you can hire everything. I do recommend taking your own dive computer and your own mask and snorkel.

Directions: All over Australia, but mainly the west and east coasts.
