The Ultimate Australia Bucket List

Goin' down under? 
I am! 
& yes that means I have already (& a long time ago) made my Australia-specific bucket list!
I have big plans for Oz in terms of how many places I want to see and things I want to do while I'm there. 
It might not be realistic to do in 12 months but I will try my bloody hardest!

Selfie with a quokka 
- if you don't know what a quokka is, Google it. It's literally top of my list!

Feed a kangaroo

Be fed kangaroo
- shady I know but its a local delicacy appaza

Hug a koala 

Sail the Whitsundays & Visit Whitehaven Beach 

Go on a wine tour

Bondi to Coogee coastal walk 

Visit Wave Rock

See the Pinnacles in Namburg NP

Swim with Sea Lions, South Australia 

Shell Beach

Drive along the Great Ocean Road
- & see the 12 Apostles 

Watch Uluru sunrise / sunset 
- you can do this on a camel, ideal. 

Try an authentic Aussie BBQ
- Oi Sheila stick another shrimp on the barbie love

Learn to surf
- might be problematic because I won't want to be in the water too long incase I get eaten by a shark, but i'll give it a go

Walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge
- may even run, what a daredevil! 

Try Vegemite 
- & probably regret the decision to do so!

Scuba dive / snorkle in the Great Barrier Reef
- as long as theres no sharks!!

Drink me some goon
- classy cheap box of wine 

Dance to 'Mysterious Girl' under the Millaa Millaa Waterfall
- yes, the very waterfall used in Peter Andre's Mysterious Girl music video

Visit each State
- Yep, NT, QLD, NSW, VIC, ACT, SA, TAS & WA I'm coming for ya! 

Watch tennis at the Australian Open
- this would mean I'd have to be in Melbourne in January 2017, but I'm sure I can get there, not a big country to travel round ;) 

Australia Zoo

Visit the world's whitest sand; Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay 

Swim with sharks
- Ha! 'Harmless' sharks, i.e whale sharks. At Ningaloo reef in WA they swarm March-July. I actually had a dream I was eaten by a whale shark the other week. Not the best omen tbh. 

Fraser Island

Uluru Base Walk 

Aurora Australis
- probably one of the hardest on the list, as it'd involve me being in Tasmania in September time, but it would amazing to see them. Northern Lights done, now for the Southern! 

Three Sisters, Blue Mountains

Jungle Surfing, Daintree Rainforest 
- not going to lie, this looks hilarious! A multi-person zipline swing through the jungle at 120km/h. 

Katherine Gorge, Nitmiluk NP
- & Edith Falls

Monkey Mia Dolphins
- dolphins swim up to the shore everyday and you are meters away from them

Kangaroo Island
- they have kangaroos AND seals AND penguins AND koalas - heaven!
