The weather is heating up and so should your travel plans! Escape the city and enjoy the mild weather with family and friends. We’ve put together a list of some great holiday destinations for your spring getaway.
Explore A Cellar Door
Barossa Valley wine region located in South Australia is renowned for producing some of the best reds in Australia, and with the vines beginning to bloom again heading into spring, there’s no better time to find yourself a cellar door to explore. The Barossa Valley is also one of the best places to go wine tasting in the country. With more than 80 cellar doors to choose from, you’ll be sure to find your new favourite spot to sip wine. Many cellar doors these days have plenty of entertainment for the kids, so you can sit and enjoy sampling some of the best wines in the region.
The Barossa Valley is not just for the wine enthusiasts. Foodies will also feel right at home with the endless fantastic food experiences to choose from. The Barossa Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings is one event you won’t want to miss. There are over 50 stallholders offering everything from fresh seasonal produce to meats, cheeses, pantry staples, baked goods, and everything in between.
If you’re looking to explore your cooking ability, then head to The Farm Eatery when you can enjoy delicious local food, or you can even take part in one of their many cooking classes.
For some great local accommodation, check out the Williamstown Caravan Park, Talunga Park, or the Murray Recreation and Caravan Park.
Seek The Sun
With minimal humidity and limited crowds, Spring is a great time to head to Queensland’s South Coast or New South Wales far north coast! The average daily temperature still sits at a balmy 22⁰C, so it’s warm enough for a dip at the beach or to relax on the sand. Head to Wave Break Island for a guided snorkel tour, where you’ll have the chance to see up to 50 different species of fish!
It’s also a great time to hit the theme parks, with queues being much shorter than the busier summer months. Get your adventure fix at Movie World, Dreamworld and Sea World with their thrill rides offering endless fun for the whole family. Wet’n’Wild and WhiteWater World also offer plenty of nonstop fun with the water kept at 25⁰C, but don’t forget about the chill factor if it comes up breezy so be sure to pack some warmer clothes.
If you’re looking for great accommodation options check out First Sun Holiday Park, Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park in Byron Bay or Somerset Park Campground or Ocean Beach Tourist Park in QLD.
Explore The West
There may be some long roads across desert and rough terrain in Australia, but have you heard of ‘Humpback Highway’? Humpback whales are the most common whales spotted off WA’s coast; they can be found in every ocean in the world! You’re most likely to spot a humpback whale in most North West towns, off of Hillarys or Fremantle and in Dunsborough, Augusta and Albany down south. If you’re there early enough in springs before the whales head south you might spot a Southern Right whale too!
With the wet weather easing in Spring time the West hails an influx of gorgeous wild flowers and clear blue skies. WA is full of diverse landscapes desperate to be explored, national parks harbouring some of the world’s rarest species of flowers and local produce is in full swing with stunning wines and delicious treats.
