Gay Trips In 2010 To Australia
Going on gay vacations to Australia represent a huge opportunity to have the best time you have ever imagined. Many people dream of going to Australia, and with good reason. For one thing, the country (and continent) is amazingly beautiful. For another, the culture is such that it is ideal for an LGBT holiday. Who does not want to go down under? For the experience of a lifetime, you absolutely have got to go.
A visit to Australia offers up a wealth of opportunities for fun. There are literally tons of activities to do and thousands of things to see. One of the most amazing activities there is the fabulous Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. You got that right, Australia has a Mardi Gras celebration of its very own, especially for the gay and lesbian community! The only catch is that you have to make sure you have a fantastic costume!
If that tickles your fancy, then you definitely should not miss the Birdsville Races, either. This ain’t your average Ascot kind of race, baby! Drink beer, place bets, and definitely wear your most fabulous and flamboyant costume. Actually, bring a few, because you might want to stay the night so you do not miss any of the fun!
For some sophisticated fun, kind of, you can join in the fun of the Hobart Yacht Race in Sydney. Make room on your calendar for Boxing Day, when this event is a huge draw. It is not all about the yachts, either. This event is a wealth of color, fun, and sport. Get a crew of your friends to come with you, have a picnic, and really get into the spirit!
If you love music, then you definitely have to check out Big Day Out. Also known more simply as the BDO, this traveling music festival is a must. The festival is enormous, and a lot of extremely awesome bands and musicians have played along its route. Even Placebo, PJ Harvey, and Coldplay are known to show up and have a great time!
If you are a film buff, Australia also has a great event for you. The famed Tropfest Film Festival occurs in February. A one night event, it is well known for introducing tomorrow’s next big filmmaker to the movie lovers of today. You never know just what kind of masterpiece you are going to get to see.
Add into all of this all the natural activities Australia has to offer, and you simply cannot go wrong. The beaches are beautiful, the scenery is second to none, and there are all kinds of sports and outdoor activities to enjoy. The nightlife is amazing as well, so every night can be a party.
Gay travel to Australia give you a chance to be yourself while you enjoy yourself. You can really revel in your solidarity with your mates. Be proud, have a fantastic time, and make the kinds of memories that will last a lifetime in Australia!
