Posted by Jane Clothier on 1 January, 2016

Here are 7 to think about as we kick off 2016. Some are high adrenalin, some not so much, but all offer fantastic ways to spend your great summer weekends.

  1. Surfing

What else could possibly come first? Australia offers some of the best waves in the world. Novice or experienced, every Aussie deserves the chance to surf!

  1. Jet Ski-ing

Now we’re talking, with the adrenalin junkie’s favourite water sport, complete with high speed, full throttle thrills – and a few spills – at speeds of up to 100km/h.

  1. Jet Boating

Here’s the high-end way to take in the water and the scenery, in a high-speed, surf-soaked ride full of twists and turns.

  1. Scuba Diving

Warm seas mean underwater adventures, exploring all of our sub-marine wonders. Take a boat far from the shore and then dive into the warm water to mingle with marine life, and explore wrecks and reefs.

  1. Kayaking

In calmer waters and estuaries, paddle a kayak along the coast, watching for turtles and dolphins, stingrays and fish in the undisturbed peace of the shoreline.

  1. Fishing

Hook up the boat in the early morning and head down to the marina, before fishing as the day warms up. And later, put the day’s catch on the barbie – how could a day end better?

  1. Sailing

Moving swiftly with the wind, enjoying the sights, scents and sounds of the ocean for a few hours or until sundown.
