With so much activity on the beaches, it's hardly surprising that sailing is popular in Australia. The Whitsunday Islands on the Barrier Reef are a great choice for those wanting to combine a sailing trip with diving or snorkelling. Trips are available to suit everyone, from those wanting to learn to sail themselves, to those wanting a relaxed cruise. If you'd rather get away from the coast, how about exploring some inland rivers? The famous Murray River can take you from the snowy mountains of New South Wales all the way to Adelaide..
