While bird and wildlife watching is a major sport in Queensland, there are numerous other options to choose from if you want to get away from the hustle-bustle of the city and relax. Cape Tribulation is one such place that offers a great mix of beach, jungle and birds.  

Chill In Melbourne
Melbourne is a must visit place in every cricket lover’s travel diaries, however, the city offers much more than just the ground. There are clubs with exotic music, cafes with traditional approach and restaurants with a variety of cuisines. Walk alongside the river, picnic at the city garden, jam out at rock concerts or go party hopping at the nightspots to enjoy the city inside out. 

Take A Wine-Sampling Tour
Apart from many other things Australia is well known for its wineries, especially those at Margaret River near Perth, the Barossa Valley near Adelaide, and the Hunter Valley near Sydney. There is a lot of good wine to be tried while in Australia, especially Shiraz and Pinot Noir. One can take a day tour to a winery or simply take a trip to the wine store and get drunk in the park. 

Sample Amazing Cuisines All Over
Forget the restaurants and enjoy an Australian barbecue in the part sipping on some delicious wine. BBQs are an age-old tradition, and most parks and public areas have at least three BBQ pits where locals get together to spend a warm night with gorgeous wine an sharing stories.
