Top Cities for Short/Weekend Student Travel Australia
Aching to be surrounded by art and history? This city in Victoria has the M.A.D.E (Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka) and the Sovereign Hill, which will take you back to the gold rush days. Even its surrounding countryside still bears evidence of those times. See more when you visitballarat.com.au. For an artful experience, the oldest regional gallery—the Ballarat Art Gallery, is the place to be.
Less than 4 hours away from the west of Sydney is Mudgee, a city that is sure to make you feel all hungry and happy at the same time, what with all the array of delectable food and wine. Much on cheese and olives and drink what’s on offer at a honey farm. If your idea of relaxing is to feel full, head out to Mudgee.
Isn’t it great to be able to soak in a warm bath after a long and stressful day at work? Go to Daylesford in Victoria and take this up to a whole new level. The city has 72 mineral baths for you to soak and relax in. Ah…what a way to spend the weekend.
What’s even better is that you don’t need to wake up too early to get a good head start since it’s just a 90-minute drive away from Melbourne.
Here, you get a pick of a range of fun options—a drink or two at the wineries of Currency Creek, a day trip to Port Elliot that you can reach through steam train rides, and a close encounter with the penguins at the penguin colony. Visit tourismvictorharbor.com.au and get all the necessary details for your trip.
It would be a shame not to dive or snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef while studying in Australia. You’ve never been to this part of the world if you don’t, really. Of course, if diving is not really your thing, you can always swim in some of Cairns beautiful beaches. Then, visit Atherton Tablelands’ waterfalls and take a scenic road trip along Captain Cook Highway, Port Douglas, and right through to Mossman Gorge.
If you want to stay longer, say 12 to 28 days, book Cairns Packages.
