The Best Places in Australia to Visit in January - For the ultimate summer vacation!

Australia is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. And January is the peak time of their summer season, and country entertains many travellers from across the globe. These are the top 5 destinations to look out for in January!


Hobart, Tasmania

One of the reasons why many people often do not visit Tasmania is its temperatures. And in January it's absolutely sublime where temperatures range at their 20s. With less rainfall, you will have plenty of activities to do out here. The comfortable temperatures are ideal for sightseeing and outdoor activities. Some things you must do and see include visiting the Museum of Old and New Art, touring Mount Wellington, trying the delicious seafood, visiting the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, touring the Cascade Brewery, checking out history at Battery Point and cruising the local islands.


Port Lincoln, South Australia

This is a small town that is located in South Australia and offers very unique experiences. The town is popular for the exquisite seafood platters and aquatic adventures. During January, you can attend the Tunarama Festival which has been happening annually for more than 50 years. When in these parts you must not miss out on the delectable seafood cuisine, swimming with sea lions or even tuna, cage diving and witnessing the great white sharks, visiting the Glenforest tourist park, deep-sea fishing and driving at the Whaler's way. Besides, if you're looking for Australian hotels for accommodation, you can check out brands like Oaks Hotels, Resorts & Suites for a comfortable stay in Australia.


Geelong, Victoria

Another great place to visit during the summer months, especially in January, is Geelong. It has been correctly termed Melbourne's little brother and offers some experiences that the capital seems to be failing at. There are quality pristine beaches, quaint seaside village towns, and an industrial history that you can explore. You cannot miss out on the Geelong Botanical Gardens, grabbing a beer at the Little Creatures Brewery, taking lessons at the Ocean Grove, visiting the National Wool museum, swimming with dolphins and seals and the likes.


Port Macquarie, North-South Wales

This part of Australia is known for scenic drives between the Gold Coast or Brisbane and Sydney. This is one of the standout destinations here and there is a multitude of reasons as to why you have to visit this place. And the number one being the koala hospital here. You cannot come to Australia and not check out these cute cuddly furry creatures. On top of that, you must also check out the Port Macquarie coastal walk, visit the billabong zoo, explore the Sea Acres National Park, and walk and dine at Breakwall.


Snowy mountains, North-South Wales

This is another place in Australia that offers plenty of activities to try out during the month of January. This may be a hilly country and well-known for winter sports, but during the warmer months, there are plenty of outdoor activities which include horse-riding, hiking, river sledging, Vinery and brewery tours and so much more.
