B– Bungee jump in Cairns.
C – Climb Sydney Harbour bridge.
D – See, meet and maybe swim with dolphins.
E – Eat Christmas dinner on Bondi Beach.
F – Attend at least one Australian festival.
G – Great Barrier Reef…if I can get brave then swim in it, but I’m totally cool with just dipping a toe or two in!
H – “How you going?” – understand that, and various other Aussie slang terms!
I – Indulge in the famous “coffee culture”, in Melbourne in particular.
J – Jump out of an aeroplane over the Great Barrier Reef. With someone who knows what they’re doing and a parachute, obviously. In other words, go skydiving, but S has been allocated to something else!
K – Take a trip on the Kuranda Sceneic Railway.
L – Learn to surf.
M – Go to the Melbourne Grand Prix.
N – Spend New Years in Sydney.
O – Take a tour of the Sydney Opera House.
P – Photograph the smallest penguins in the world at Philip Island.
Q – Queensland. All of it. Or as much as I can. It sounds like my kind of place!
R – Relax on as many beaches as possible. Not sure how to monitor this one, and I realise it sounds a bit lame, but in my defence have you seen how jam-packed the rest of this list is?! 😉
S – Shower in the Minyon Falls Flora Reserve waterfall at Nightcap National Park.
T – Theme parks: at least one water park and one adventure park.
U – Uluru…and this includes Ayers Rock, obviously.
V – Eat a Vegemite sandwich. If anyone genuinely has any other/better suggestions I’m all ears on this one!
W – Watch a film at a Moonlight Cinema.
X – Get an X-ray. Again, any better suggestions welcome because I’d rather not have to call upon my travel insurance I’ll be honest!
Y – Yell “Oh my God I can’t believe it I’ve never been this far away from home!” at the top of my voice in the Outback. Thank you Kaiser Chiefs and odd family traditions.
Z – Go to the zoo!
