Aussie Adventures: The Ultimate Guide to the 6 Best Cities for Solo Travel


Many people want to travel a lot, but their friends either don’t want to or are at different stages of life to travel with them. The solution to this is to get the audacity to embark on solo adventures and overcome limiting beliefs that you can’t do this on your own. On the contrary, you can embark on great solo adventures, like the one you can have by visiting Australia. Australia is rich in cities great for solo adventures, so let’s see which one of these cities you’ll want to choose.


Let’s start this list off by talking about Sydney. There are many reasons why people go to Sydney, as it is the jewel of New South Wales. You can easily explore Sydney with other fellow travellers by joining tours of The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Royal Botanical Gardens, Darling Harbour and others. We highly recommend going on a bridge climb adventure if you’re feeling adventurous. You’ll also have a lot of fun on a night out by diving into the vibrant nightlife of Darlinghurst and Kings Cross.


Brisbane is located in Queensland, and it can be great for every traveller who seeks a mix of urban sophistication and natural beauty. Starting from the Brisbane River to Brisbane Botanic Garden and Brisbane City Garden, it offers a feast for your eyes. Next, you can explore trendy neighbourhoods like Fortitude Valley or spend time with koalas at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. If you’re in the mood for coastal magic, spend time on the Gold Coast.


Those who had fun in Sydney also have to spend a few days in Melbourne. This city is seen as the cultural heart of Australia, as it offers everything from various cultural institutions, festivals, fashion, music or art-related events, and street art. In addition to its thriving arts scene, foodies will enjoy the diverse cuisine and culinary delights at the iconic Queen Victoria Market. 

For those who also love to explore the richness of nightlife in a city like Melbourne, there’s something for every taste. From hidden bars to a number of exquisite Melbourne brothels, you’ll have a night to remember and memories you’ll cherish forever. 


Adelaide is located in South Australia, and it’s known for its charming architecture and amazing parks. Especially if you want some time to get lost in your thoughts, Adelaide Himeji Garden will be the perfect refuge you seek. The city’s laid-back atmosphere and welcoming locals create a perfect environment for solo exploration, but you’ll still want to experience the sunset at Glenelg Beach.


Perth is a city of amazing beaches, and it’s located in Western Australia. Your itinerary should include visiting Cottesloe and Scarborough beaches for amazing sunrises, beach activities and sunsets. 

Solo travellers can immerse themselves in the arts and culture scene, particularly in Fremantle, making the most of the city’s relaxed vibe. Consider going on a day trip to witness the magical landscapes of the Pinnacles Desert.


If you want to visit a city that will overthrow all your expectations, plan on visiting Hobart in Tasmania. First, you should go on a tour to explore the iconic Mount Wellington, especially if you’re a nature lover. 

Wine lovers can spend a day exploring vineries as Tasmania is known for its great wine. 

If you are more of a beer lover, you can go on a tour to explore Australia’s oldest brewery. It’s also worth mentioning that you can easily explore Hobart on foot and make a stop at the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery or whenever you notice a cute and inviting cafe or a restaurant. 

As we conclude our journey through the six best Aussie cities for single travellers, remember that each one is as versatile as Australia’s history. Whether you’re captivated by the urban hotspots, beaches, parks, wildlife sanctuaries or nightlife, exploring Australia as a solo traveller will be a rewarding experience.
