With the holiday season soon upon us, it’s time to start taking a look at all the unique and wonderful holidays that we can embark on. Whether it’s adventure you’re seeking or beautiful landscapes that you want to witness, we’ve put together a shortlist of unique holiday ideas with an emphasis on travelling. So get your cameras ready, pack your bags and get ready to go the journey of the year.

Road trips

Road trips are common in parts of America, but they’re a dying art in Australia. A road trip is full of experiences and it’s also a budget holiday. As long as you take care of the car you plan to travel with, all it costs is fuel and some cheap accommodation. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, why not go camping? All you need to pack is a tent and a sleeping bag, but make sure you look for camping sites before you head out. It’s always a good idea to plan a route before you decide to go on an adventure in the great outback. Make sure you put an emphasis on safety as well. The last thing you want is to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with no phone connection, and it’s always a good idea to pack some extra food and water so you don’t dehydrate or starve yourself during long drives.

Cruise experiences

Fancy going out to sea? It’s wonderful this time of year and with the help of cruise holiday services, you’ll have the time of your life. Whether you want to go on celebrity cruises or just a simple relaxing one with your family, there’s a lot to pick from and there are many routes to go on. Whether it’s a short trip up and down the Australian coast or a longer journey that stretches to Hawaii, there’s something to suit the length of your holiday and your budget.

Train tours

There’s nothing quite as comforting as a train tour through Australia. Trains are an underrated form of travel transport. They’re not as quick as planes, but they’re also not as slow as cars. They might not offer as much freedom as travelling on a road trip, but you’re not high above the clouds like you would be on a plane. In other words, a train tour is the perfect balance of freedom and sight seeing. You’ll pass through some beautiful landscapes and you’ll also get the chance to stop off at unique destinations, all the while being treated to classy service thanks to the train’s onboard amenities.

Backpacking

If you’re really up for some adventure, then there’s nothing that will beat backpacking. With nothing but a sleeping bag and some clothes on your back, backpacking is perhaps the most difficult to convince yourself to do because of the safety concerns. However, once you get over your fears and embrace uncertainty, you’ll find that backpacking is perhaps the most interesting and liberating form of holiday that you can ever experience. You’ll meet plenty of people on your journey, you’ll encounter some beautiful things, and you’ll experience the world up close and personal.
