More and more people are visiting Australia these days, and the reasons for that are more than good if you ask us. There’s something truly magical about this gorgeous country, so keep on reading to learn about five Australian cities every man should visit. Check them out and enjoy! 

Magnificent Melbourne

If you’re looking for a city that combines the old-school Victorian style and modern, contemporary design, Melbourne will definitely be your cup of tea. This unusual combination is to be found in the heart of the city, at Federation Square, which brings together amazing galleries, restaurants, bars, and world-class events. Apart from the cultural diversity, you must know that sport plays a huge role in this city which hosts the Melbourne Cup (horse racing), the Australian Open, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and many more. This is a city where you can get whatever you want from the best men’s massage (at Elite Male Massage TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2019) to a fabulous dinner and mind-blowing cocktails, so explore it first-hand and you won’t regret it!

Stunning Sydney

Sydney prides itself on iconic sights, waterfront attractions, outstanding food scene, and over-the-top shopping, which is exactly what makes it a perfect destination for a city break. Apart from its admiring architecture and unique buildings, there are also gorgeous stretches of golden sands such as Bondi and Palm Beach – some of the most famous places in this stunning city. It also has one of the most authentic natural harbors in the world, which is a true must-see when in Sydney. This city is also surrounded by national parks for all the nature lovers out there, including the Blue Mountains which are adventurers’ absolute favorites. You must know that private airport transfers in Sydney are available as well, so bear them in mind and have an Australian trip of your dreams!

Beautiful Brisbane

Located between the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, where the skies are blue and the beaches are sandy white, Brisbane is undoubtedly one of the most perfect Aussie locations when it comes to beach relaxation. Apart from its breathtaking skyline, numerous museums and theatres, and the iconic Wheel of Brisbane, there are also many high-end restaurants and bars that offer fresh and delicious foods and lure tourists from all over the globe. Planetarium and Botanical Gardens are a must-see, and it gets even better when you realize that the Great Barrier Reef is just a two-hour flight away from Brisbane!

Heavenly Hobart

Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is unquestionably one of the most beautiful and underrated Australian cities in the equally overlooked island of Tasmania. Of course, expecting a Tasmanian devil to run by and greet the tourists is completely unreasonable (even though these really exist), so make sure to bear that in mind in order to avoid disappointment. Instead, focus on the wonderful Mount Wellington that dominates the city’s coastal landscape and check out Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park, which is arguably one of the world’s best beaches. One thing is certain – Hobart will live up to your expectations, without a shadow of a doubt!

Astonishing Adelaide

Last but not least, Adelaide is definitely more like a huge country town than a busy metropolis. It’s actually the fifth largest city and the wine capital of Australia, with the beautiful Adelaide Hills as its most famous wine region. Besides that, this city also hosts numerous festivals including Adelaide Food and Wine Festival, which is one of the best festivals in this astonishing city. Beautiful beaches can be found in Adelaide as well, so be sure to check out Henley and Grange Beach if you’re up for romantic sunsets. On the other hand, if you want to explore a fine collection of Australian and Aboriginal art, you must visit the North Terrace Cultural Precinct. You won’t make a mistake with it!

Australia truly has a large number of amazing cities every man should visit at least once in his lifetime, and these five have found their place on our list for a good reason. Just take them into consideration once you decide to visit the Land Down Under and you’ll see what we were talking about!

5 Fun Summer Activities for Aussies

Even though winter is knocking at the door at other parts of the world, now it’s summertime in Australia. And since this is a land of so many hidden treasures, some of them simply have to be experienced during summertime. So, if you’re an Aussie or you are simply there for vacation (which is always a great option!), there is a plethora of things that you have to try out. Unless you already have a bucket list of the things you want to experience this summer in the Land Down Under, we give you the five most interesting ones – so grab your necessities and jump on this bandwagon!

1. Start the summer with a nice massage

Is there a better way to start the summer than by getting the best possible massage out there? Even though you should definitely include a nice massage in your health routine and go for one from time to time, this is something that we forget to gift ourselves – so, this might be the perfect time. Find the best place that gives massages (if you’re a guy then you should definitely consider a male massage) and start your summer by relaxing all the muscles in your body because you definitely need it. Starting fresh will make your summer much more memorable, especially because you will be up for every challenge that you come across (you might even want to try new things as a good massage can certainly improve your mood).

2. Discover what Western Australia has to offer

You cannot call yourself an Aussie if you haven’t had a road trip to the South West of Western Australia at least once. Similarly, if you’re just visiting Australia, then it should definitely be on your list, as it’s one of the most exciting things that you can do here. In order to make the most of the road trip, the best option would be to start from Perth and make your way up to Margaret River. In order to fully experience this amazing place, you should explore the amazing nature of this region and later enjoy yourself in a brewery in Margaret River. This way, you will explore this magnificent town in the best way possible and discover some of the best craft beers Australia has to offer.

3. Anyone up for swimming with dolphins?

There is something that you’re not able to do at other parts of the world but is simply a must in Australia. It starts with the word “swimming” and ends with the word “dolphin”. Yes, you’ve guessed it right, even though it was difficult - swimming with dolphins! This once-in-a-lifetime experience doesn’t cost a lot, meaning that it’s worth every penny. The best place to try this out is Rockingham (45 minutes south from Perth), and the fare is just a bit above $200. However, if you want something more commercial, you can always choose the Sea World on the Gold Coast, which is also excellent if you have children. Namely, they offer a dolphin family adventure program that costs around $650 for the whole group.

4. See the Great Barrier Reef while it still exists

A sad fact: it is believed that the Great Barrier Reef will disappear in the next couple of decades, so it would be best to experience this magical place before that happens. And once you’re there, you definitely have to go snorkeling, as this is an activity that many locals and tourists simply love. Even though this is not really an affordable adventure, especially if more of you are up for it, this is something that you might not do again, so opting for this experience is investing in good memories.

5. See a show at the Opera House

If you’re in Sydney, then the Opera House is definitely a landmark that you want to check out. Sure, you can take a walk around it or sit down in one of the many restaurants that overlook this building, but why not actually see a show there? If your budget allows you to, you can even opt for spending your New Year’s Eve here – it includes accommodation for three nights and tickets to a show. Definitely worth it!

There are so many other things that we would love to list here, but then this article would be at least a hundred pages long. So, make sure to check out these five items first, and then you can move on to the next adventures!
