The Cultural Highlights Of Travelling Down Under

Australia is easily one of the most visited parts of the planet, and it’s not too hard to see why that might be. Given its sheer vastness, it’s not surprising that there is so much that you can do and see on this continent, and yet you might find yourself at a loss as to where to go exactly and what to do specifically, simply because of its huge size. 

Because there is so much, it can be hard to pinpoint which are the best parts, and that is something that can take a lot of consideration to get right. As long as you put some of the following on your list, you should be able to enjoy your experience of Australia that much more.


Australia is one of the most tennis-loving countries in the world, and there's so much evidence for this in the fact that it hosts the first major tennis tournament of the year, every year. Commonly referred to as the Happy Slam, the Australian Open is a hugely popular and world-famous tennis tournament which brings in all of the biggest names in the sport to play in the beautiful - and the scorching hot - city of Melbourne, in the state of Victoria. If you are travelling around Australia, it’s worth considering trying to time it well so that you can visit Melbourne at the right time for this. Australian Open tickets are not always easy to come by, so you should make sure to plan early, but as long as you do there is no reason you won’t be able to fit this into your travel itinerary.


Arguably, Australia is home to the most famous Opera House in the world, the huge and beautifully stunning one on the harbour in the glorious city of Sydney. There is clearly nowhere better to see an opera in the world, but even if you are not into opera you will find that this is a venue which is well worth exploring. It is commonly the host to many different kinds of events and gatherings, and you might even find that your favourite musician is playing there at some point in the year. It’s always worth checking the itinerary before you travel, as this could be a great way to spend your time in the cultural capital of Australia.


It’s well known that Australia is hugely keen on its rugby, and if this is a sport that you like to enjoy, then you are likely to be able to see plenty of it when you are in the Australian continent. No matter where you go if it is the right reason - and it almost always is - there will always be rugby games to go to, so you won't’ have to worry about running out of matches to visit. That’s worth remembering, as there is something inherently and truly Australian about watching the rugby.
