It’s no secret that I’d love to visit Australia and it’s no secret that this is probably due to watching Neighbours whilst growing up. Oh and I think The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert probably had a bit to do with it as well.
It’s also no secret that I have a thing for Aussie men! My favourite actors are Aussies – Hugh Jackman, Hugo Weaving, Richard Roxburgh etc. Oh and of course my favourite F1 driver is an Aussie (Daniel Ricciardo) and my favourite ex-F1 driver and WEC champion (Mark Webber) is an Aussie.
I would like to visit Melbourne in March so I could go to the Australian Grand Prix to cheer Danny Ric at his home race. Hopefully I’d bump into Mark Webber whilst I’m there.
Whilst in Melbourne I would also do all the fan-girly Neighbours stuff like the set tour. Do some stalking of Dr Karl Kennedy (who sent me a birthday video!).
Naturally I would have to visit Sydney and get a selfie in front of the Opera House. Would I be brave enough to climb the Harbour Bridge? I doubt it but in this once in a lifetime trip I reckon I could maybe just about do it.
Uluru and Alice Springs
Also on the agenda is a trip to Uluru (Ayers Rock). Channeling Tick and Felicia I might just climb up it in a dress and fabulous heels! (If you don’t get it then you need to watch Priscilla!)
Another stop on this epic adventure would be Alice Springs. I have no idea what’s there but it’s just one of those places I’d just want to say “I’ve been there!”
Kangaroo Island and Tasmania
I want to visit Kangaroo Island too – well it’s an island full of kangaroos! Would be an awesome sight to see. A trip to Tasmania would also be in order. If I’m going that far I’m going to find me a Tasmanian Devil!
Is there anywhere else in Australia you would recommend? And how about you, where would you most like to visit?
