Top 5 Fun Things to Do in Australia in 2015

We’ve already brought you through the many reasons to visit Australia, and believe us, there are many! But more than just sun, sea and the typical tourist sights, Australia has plenty more going on
Whether you want to take in some local music, art or sport, there are specific events that are definitely worth attending across the country that will add just a little something different from the norm to your adventure down under. 

5 Fun Things to do in Australia in 2015

Here are our 5 top picks for things to see in Australia this year:

1. Blues on the Beach

We don’t get the weather to fully take advantage of our beaches in Ireland, but the Australians have it down. In May, some of Australia’s best blues’ talent and plenty of international acts take to Broadbeach in Queensland for one of Australia’s most iconic blues festivals
You will probably take in the beautiful beaches down under anyway, so why not soak up some of their bluesy culture while you’re at it!

2. Things to do in Perth

Perth skylineYou can see the sun set wherever you are in the world really, but after filming Son of a Gun on Australia’s west coast, and in its sunniest city Perth, Ewan McGregor claimed it was “home to the most amazing sunset” of his life
If that’s not convincing on its own, you can be sure there’s so much more to see in Western Australia that you won’t be left bored during the day.

3. Australian Motor Cycle Grand Prix

If you’re looking for more of an action-packed holiday or something a little bit different, head over in October to the Australian Motor Cycle Grand Prix on Philip Island
Melbourne Grand PrixThe track is one of the world’s fastest, promising more than enough action and excitement for one holiday, with absolutely world class racing. Australia’s newest superstar, Jack Miller, is the one to watch out for!

4. Things to do in Sydney

Australia’s Bondi beach is probably one of the most famous beaches in the world. There’s plenty to do there already, but if you’re planning a holiday in October or November, it would be well worth your while taking in the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.

Creator David Handley wanted to mimic other community events like Symphony under the Stars and Opera in the Park, but with art and sculpture.   And don’t forget October is just heading into Australian summer time, so you have all the more reason to take advantage of Bondi Beach.

5. New Year’s Eve in Sydney

Almost everywhere in the world, New Year’s is celebrated one way or another, but the view of the Sydney Opera House on the television doesn’t quite do it justice. You really have to see it for yourself. 
If you’re heading over to spend Christmas down under, it would be well worth your while staying on the few extra days to take in the spectacle of the New Year’s festival at Sydney harbor. It’ll be a New Year’s Eve you won’t forget.
