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!

De-Stress

How many times have you come back from work and said: “This has been a long day”? Well, probably more than you could count, and due to the fast pace of life, this trend doesn’t seem like it will go away any time soon. This is why we should always know how to relax after a long day at work, and it’s time we became completely selfish during those long work weeks. Perhaps you don’t know how to actually rest after work, but don’t worry – take a look at these 5 ways to relax after work while actually doing something that you’re going to like and find completely comfortable:

First, relax those muscles

Obviously, the first thing that should come to mind after a long workday is a good massage. This is definitely not something that you can opt for every single time you experience a hard day at work, but it should be something you practice at least once a month. Relaxing your muscles will help you first of all physically, but also mentally. You will find these movements to be quite soothing to both your body and your brain as it will activate and relax all of your nerves at the same time. You can opt for many different massages depending on your preferences. You can have a relaxation massage, a deep tissue massage, a sports massage, or you can also invite a masseur for a mobile massage service to come to your home if you really want to be in your home after a long day’s work.

Chat, eat, drink, enjoy

Even though you might be tired after a long day at work, that doesn’t mean that you should go home and do nothing. One option would be to organize a get-together with your friends and relax over a cup of coffee, or perhaps over a glass of wine. These night glasses of wine or champagne during a working week are always very refreshing, but make sure that you have something to eat as well. Since you probably won’t have time to prepare anything, you can always opt for the best catering in Sydney, Melbourne, or any other city if you’re not from Australia. The choices are endless, and you should definitely have hanging out with your friends as an option.

Idleness might be the key

Sometimes the best way to relax is to do absolutely nothing but lie down. Not only does this make you feel relaxed, but it can also help your muscles and your brain at the end of the day. You can lie down on your bed or your couch, but pay attention to what sounds you’re listening to. If you really want to relax, make sure that you lie there in complete silence for approximately 10 minutes, or play a soothing playlist while you’re meditating. Breathe deep and try to forget about the difficult day you’ve had.

Wash away your troubles

Taking a looooong hot bath might be the solution to all of your problems. Prepare the biggest bath of the week, get in the bath and simply enjoy. This is always one of the best ways to spend your late nights, especially after a long day at work. Pour a glass of champagne, prepare some snacks (such as fruit) and simply enjoy. If you don’t have a bathtub but a shower, you can opt for a long and steamy shower which will be followed by a session of doing absolutely nothing. Sounds terrific!

What about your hobbies?

Finally, there is always the option of indulging in your own hobbies, no matter what they are. Even if you are exhausted after work, you might find it relaxing to hit the gym, especially if you’re a gym freak. If you like painting, go home or into nature and paint something. Having active hobbies doesn’t mean that you will get more tired as that’s what your hobbies are for – to help you relax.

These ways will most certainly help you relax after a long day at work. And it’s better to remember them, as you will probably have more such days at work, so prepare and know how to relax in advance!
