FIND HOT SPRINGS
Looking for a springtime escape that is both relaxing and refreshing? Look no further than the Yarrangobilly Caves Thermal Pool. This natural wonder is located in the heart of the Snowy Mountains on the Thermal Pool Trail Yarrangobilly, a 5.5 hour drive from Sydney. It offers visitors a unique opportunity to soak in thermal waters with surroundings of blankets of snow. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast looking for some new activities to try, or you are simply looking for a place to relax and rejuvenate, the Yarrangobilly Caves Thermal Pool is definitely worth visiting! It’s permanently heated at 27 degrees by a natural spring and measures around 20 metres long and 2.5 meters deep.
Alternatively, 90 minutes from Melbourne you’ll find Peninsula Hot Springs. An award- winning hot springs and day spa destination – it’s an idyllic setting for relaxation and rejuvenation. Take advantage of the spring weather and soak in the atmosphere of the season.
If you're looking for a springtime trek that will take your breath away, the Majestic Thorsborne Trail in Hinchinbrook Island National Park is a perfect choice. This challenging hike winds through lush rainforest and along rocky ridges with stunning views of the surrounding ocean and islands. And if you're lucky, you may even see some of the park's resident wildlife, including wallabies and koalas. Make sure to pack your camping gear – this hike is best done as an overnight trip!
Alternatively, find yourself in the Northern Territory, visit Uluru and do the Uluru base walk. Located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a living cultural landscape where earth and memories exist as one. During the months of May to September, the weather is cooler temperatures during the day. As well, the colours of the rock are usually more vibrant during this period. Get up close and personal with the rock and follow in the footsteps of the ancestral beings that shaped the landscape. The Uluru base walk is about 10 km of track that takes you around the whole circumference of the rock. You can take the entire Uluru base walk, or just concentrate on one or more of its sections, depending on how much time you have, your level of fitness and the weather.
One of the best ways to take advantage of the warmer weather is by visiting one of the many beautiful parks. The Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens are a stunning oasis of fauna and flora in the heart of the city. With more than 30,000 plants from all over the world on display, it's no wonder that visitors flock to these gardens year-round. The best time to visit is during spring, when the gardens come alive with new growth and colour. There are many activities and events that take place at the gardens throughout the year, so be sure to check out their website for more information!
So there you have it! These are just a few of the many great activities that you can do in Australia this spring. So get out there and enjoy the season! And don't forget, if you need any gear, be sure to check out Fjallraven's website for all your outdoor needs. Happy exploring!
