Top 5 Adventure Activities (On A Budget)

Top 5 Adventure Activities (On A Budget)

A sunny day in Australia is guaranteed to result in a phone call from your friends encouraging you to go out on a new adventure. To find that balance between saving money and wanting to spend time with your friends can, however, be quite difficult. Our bank accounts can, unfortunately, prevent us from going out, creating memories, and having fun.

To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our top 5 adventure activities that you can complete within Australia while staying within your budget.

1.Tree Ropes Course (Tasmania)

If you like the great outdoors as well as climbing trees, then the Hollybank tree ropes course is perfect for you. There is something for everyone as long as you’re aged 4 or older! Your whole family can have fun at around $50 per adult if they are adventurous and interested in hanging from any height between 2 and 25 metres. It is a great way to get out of your comfort zone by tackling more than 70 different challenges, with nets, ladders, and different platforms. 

For those of us who are not too keen on heights, there are also opportunities to go mountain bike riding for $30 per person or you can join Segway tours at $100 per person through the Holly bank forest.

2.Great Ocean Road (Victoria)

Whether you are living in Australia, or just visiting you must take a road trip down the Great Ocean Road. Just an hour and fifteen minutes away from Melbourne, this 43-kilometre scenic stretch of land begins in Torquay and finishes in Allansford, with a few highlights scattered along the way. Bells Beach is a world-famous surf beach that you can find along your travels where the Rip Curl Pro surfing events happen every Easter.

The most iconic attraction, the 12 Apostles, can also be found along this road. The site is visited by over 2 million tourists every year, making it one of Victoria’s most popular tourist destinations and a must-see destination on your bucket list. The only expenses on this trip will be fuel and food if you decide to stop along the way, making it the perfect travel and budget-friendly road trip.

3.Sydney Harbour Bridge/ Opera House (New South Wales)

Sydney Harbour Bridge/ Opera House

Two of the world’s most recognisable landmarks reside in Sydney. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the largest steel arch bridge on the planet and The Sydney Opera house is listed as a world heritage site. They are a mere 7 kilometres from each other and the perfect place to go and revel in the life of a tourist.

Walking down the Harbour Bridge and watching the boats sail past is an incredible sight that can be experienced for FREE!

Even though the iconic Sydney Opera House can be viewed from the outside for free, guided tour tickets are about $80 for adults and free for children under 5, making this a worthy addition to your budget bucket list.

4.Litchfield National Park (Northern Territory)

Litchfield National Park

If you happen to find yourself in the Northern Territory, this is a site that you need to visit. The Litchfield National Park has no entry fee and has everything from nature, trees, waterfalls, swimming holes and hiking paths. There are also four-wheel-drive tracks and camping grounds with showers available at $6.60 per person, making it a great place to experience the beauty of nature on budget.

5.Go Sandboarding at Lancelin (Western Australia)

Travelling through WA? Then head to the Lancelin sand dunes and seize the opportunity to surf the sand.  The Lancelin dunes are the largest in Western Australia and stretch for 2 kilometres.  Even though you can visit the sand dunes at any time of the year, we suggest that you go in the morning and when its dry.  The strong winds in the afternoon can make sandboarding difficult and if it has rained, the sand gets sticky and hard to ‘surf’.  Entry to the Lancelin sand dunes is free and they’re open all year round but hiring the sandboard costs $12.50 which ensures that your wallet won’t be too angry for having some fun.

No matter where you are in Australia, our list provides you with the chance to make great memories while not having to worry about your expenses for a single moment.
