So you’ve found yourselves flights to Australia. You have organized your travel insurance and your emergency first aid kit. You are equipped with tents, hiking boots and insect repellent.
Or possibly the most recent guidebooks on culture and cafés in Sydney. Now it’s time to decide the details of your guys-only vacation down under.
Though it is, in fact, open to people of both genders, the Manly Scenic Walkway seems too good an opportunity to miss. This is a four hour, 10km walk spanning Sydney Harbour National Park. Sturdy footwear is essential, as is plenty of water. Starting out at Manly Beach, this trek takes you through Sydney’s most rugged terrain whilst also providing many fabulous viewing points from which you can see many of the city’s best loved sights.
If you really want to get back to basics, why not try a trek of Australia’s stunning North Country? A company such as Odyssey Tours and Safaris should be able to provide you with all the information you need. Trek up Uluru (Ayre’s Rock) and through three of Australia’s best loved National Parks - Kakadu, Lichtfield and Nitmiluk. Certain organised trekking trips will even allow you to get in touch with your inner caveman and try your hand at the aboriginal method of spear throwing.
And of course no all-boys trip to Australia would be complete without a proper meat-fuelled barbecue. Find yourself a place on the beach where you can either rent a barbecue or buy your own disposable. Head to a local supermarket and stock up on what is widely regarded as some of the highest quality meat in the world. Add bread, salad, and plenty of cold beer, and you’ve got yourself a boys night out to remember.
