If you’re traveling to Australia for the first time, there are so many things to do and see. You’ll want to spend your time exploring the country and all that it has to offer. But if you have a little extra time, consider taking classes while you’re in town! Here are some of my personal favorites:
1. Learn How to Surf
If you’re an active person and you love to play on the beach, learning how to surf is the perfect way for you to enjoy your time in Australia. You’ll be able to spend your days soaking up some sun while riding waves on one of the world’s most beautiful coasts.
Surfing schools are easy to find in Australia and there are many options available depending on where in the country you will be staying. Many instructors offer both private lessons and group classes that can accommodate all levels of surfing abilities—so don’t worry if this is something new for you!
To prepare yourself, pack sunscreen (available everywhere), comfortable clothing like board shorts or swimsuits (also widely available), and a hat or visor for protecting against harsh rays during dry periods when water visibility diminishes due to winds blowing sand into the air creating haze conditions known as ‘fog’. If possible bring your gear such as boards with fins attached at the bottom end designed specifically for catching waves otherwise rent them from a local shop where equipment may be rented out on a daily basis depending on availability.”
2. Watch a Movie Under the Stars
Watching movies under the stars is one of the most fun, unique ways to spend your time in Australia. There are plenty of places where you can go to watch movies this way, but here are some tips for getting the best experience:
- Find a park that has a big open space and clear views of the sky. If there aren’t any parks near your hotel or hostel, look up “free events” on Google Maps and see if any pop up nearby. You may be able to find an event like this going on in one of your hostels’ neighborhoods!
- Get there early so that you can get a good view of what’s happening on stage (or screen). You don’t want to be sitting too far away from it all—that’s why you’re here after all! Plus there will be plenty more opportunities for people to watch later on if everything goes well with these first few steps…
3. Attend a Bushranger Show
Bushrangers are a term used to describe Australian thieves and robbers, and they are still talked about today. Bushrangers were around during the years of the Gold Rush (1850s), but most of them were captured or hanged by the 1860s. If you’re interested in learning more about these outlaws and watching some of their stories come to life on stage, you can attend a bushranger show!
4. Gin Making Class
Gin has been on the rise in popularity over the last few years, and it’s not hard to see why. Gin is a very versatile spirit; you can use it in cocktails or enjoy it neat. There are tons of different styles of gin, too—dry and London dry being just a couple of examples.
Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to make gin at home! You just need juniper berries (which you can buy online or from specialty stores), an alcohol base like vodka or bourbon, and some herbs and spices like cinnamon sticks or cardamom pods—and then you’ll be ready for your DIY adventure!
Of course, if you don’t have time to make your batch of homemade gin on vacation then there are other options available as well: many businesses offer Gin making classes where they teach people how to make their homemade spirits right there on campus grounds! And if that doesn’t work out either then there are also tours where they teach visitors all about how this great drink came into being so they can get some knowledge while having fun with friends
5. Make Your Way to the Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is one of the most famous buildings in Sydney and Australia and has been featured on countless postcards. It hosts shows and concerts, but it is also an architectural wonder that you can tour. You can attend classes in music and dance there, too!
6. See How Wine is Made Firsthand
If you want to know more about the wine industry in Australia, a tour of a winery is sure to give you some insight. There are many wineries located around the country that offer tours and tastings, so this can be done at any time depending on where you are traveling. Some wineries also have restaurants or cafes where they serve wine and local food items.
If possible, try to go on a weekday or during off-peak hours (the weekdays before 2 pm). This will help reduce crowds and make it easier for you to receive personalized attention from staff members and owners alike. You will also not have to worry about paying expensive admission fees because during these times of the day there aren’t many tourists around! Finally, don’t forget your camera—you’ll want plenty of photos to remember all the fun times had while visiting your new favorite spot!
Australia is a great place to travel and have fun, so consider taking a class when you have free time.
If you’re traveling to Australia, there are many fun things to do and see. You can visit museums, go on a hike through the bush and see some animals in their natural habitat. But what if you want to learn something new while you’re there? There are many classes available that will help you learn more about Australia while teaching English.
If you’re planning on visiting Australia, then these classes are a great way to learn more about the country and its people while having fun. We hope that this list inspires you to take one or more of them when you get there!
