Sure, you might have heard of many of these Aussie attractions.
What you might now know are the enthralling experiences that they deliver.
From underwater museums to after-dark tours, these amazing activities add even more bling to some of our most iconic attractions.
The National Gallery of Victoria is an institution in the heart of Melbourne. So, how can you experience it with a twist?
Pack your dancing shoes and head down for NGV Friday Nights! With fresh music talent and DJ sets to keep you on your feet, this is a night out to remember. Of course, there will be decadent food and drinks to complement the exhibits if you can tear yourself away from the dancefloor.
Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating places to explore in Australia is Uluru. Steeped in monumental history, it's a living cultural landscape like no other. However, there is a unique way to see Uluru after dark – through the illumination of Field of Light.
The dazzling outdoor exhibition by world-renowned artist Bruce Munro covers more than seven footy fields with an astounding 50,000 spindles of light. Enjoy a self-guided walk through the field or join a tour for a guided excursion.
Sure, we've all heard of diving the Great Barrier Reef, but there's a new go-to spot. The Museum of Underwater Art is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere where stories of the reef are shared, and First Nations' culture is celebrated. And this museum also plays a part in reef conservation.
The sculptures on display were conceptualised by world-famous underwater sculpturist, Jason deCaires. There's just one catch (pun intended); you must dive deep to see it!
A visit to Fremantle Prison is always an intriguing experience, but there's something even more fascinating – embarking on a Torchlight Tour.
Join the guides after dark and be entertained by candlelight as they share ghastly stories of bygone times. This tour isn't for the faint-hearted, though!
Stay at: BIG4 Perth Midland Tourist Park.
d'Arenberg Cube is fast becoming a state icon. And its appeal has just lifted thanks to the Salvador Dali Expo. It's a surrealist exhibition with 25 authentic Salvador sculptures and graphic artworks.
This is a $9 million display that is touring Australia. Also on show are works by Australian surrealist Charles Billich, whose artworks proudly hang in the Vatican and The White House (yep, he's the real deal!).
It doesn't get more unique than visiting the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart. Even the ferry ride there is a spectacle aboard a military-style, high-speed catamaran with sheep as seats (yup, it's a thing).
Once at MONA, you'll want to explore the weird and wonderful exhibits, but take time to enjoy the cellar door. This also happens to be one of Tasmania's oldest vineyards. Partake in a tasting or simply enjoy the three styles of wine on offer: Praxis, Muse, and Cloth.
Stay at: BIG4 Hobart Airport Tourist Park.
Tomaree National Park is well-known for its summit walk, but just offshore is a gem that is just as captivating: Fingal Island.
You can boat or kayak to the island and explore the 1862-built lighthouse, which offers views that span Fingal Bay and take in historical surrounds and ruins. This is a park experience that packs a punch!
SkyPoint is Australia's highest external building climb, in one of Queensland's most acclaimed buildings. Yep, this experience will take you to new heights. Go 270m high and admire the view below. Those who crave a climb with a difference can choose to do a sunrise, twilight, or night climb.
Set your eyes on a cinema experience with a difference. Pentridge cinema forms part of the exciting transformation of the former prison site. There are 14 screening rooms with luxury, fully reclining seats and a licenced menu. View some of Hollywood's finest films in this historical establishment.
We've all heard about swimming with dolphins – and even sharks for the truly adventurous – but what about swimming with seals and sea lions? The Australian sea lion happens to be one of the world's rarest mammals, and you can see them up close on a sea lion charter at Jurien Bay Marine Park.
While Freycinet National Park gets its fair share of eyeballs and footprints, this isolated sanctuary at its toe is an ideal retreat for those who enjoy the path less taken. The lack of crowds is a large part of its appeal.
Flanked with secluded sandy beaches and rocky granite bays, the island offers spectacular snorkelling opportunities. Take a day trip to enjoy the serenity minus the spectators!
Stay at: BIG4 Illuka on Freycinet Holiday Park.
