With more than 30,000 miles of spectacular coastline, Down Under is ripe with adventure opportunities—most notably in the Outback and a little place called the Great Barrier Reef. Bonus: Given that its population-to-land ratio is so low (Australia is one of the least crowded countries in the world), you’ll even feel like you have huge stretches of it to yourself.
Adventures to try: Scuba diving off Lady Elliot Island; hiking through Tasmania's Bay of Fires; swimming under waterfalls in The Kimberley (just watch out for crocodiles).
Note: If you are interested in helping Australia during its current bushfire crisis, check out these resources.
Alan: Factual errors in the story ; not unusual for the Guardian: A. the Deportees were not British they were Jamaican nationals. Had they been British citizens they would not have been deported B. Begum defected from the UK to ISIS. A UK court upheld UK law that stripped her and any other criminal who did what she did. Why let a good rant get in the way of the truth.
