Exciting things you can do in summer for free
Go on a bush walk
No matter where you live, it won’t take too long for you to find a bush trail and you can go hiking. There will be some beautiful scenery, plus you are getting some good exercise as well! You can choose to hike by yourself or with friends and/ or family, it’s totally up to you.
Just make sure you plan well before. It is important to know where you are going, what you need to bring, how long the hike is, where to go, how to get there, and how to get back home at the end of the day. Also, if you are choosing to go by yourself, make sure you let someone else know what you are doing, just in case something happens.
Hang out by the beach
Ah the beach! So many people flock to the beach each and every summer, and there is a reason for this. There is actually so much to do at the beach! You can lay on the sand and sunbathe, go for a swim in the ocean, go surfing or bodyboarding, go for a run along the beach, find any rock pools.
When you head off the beach make sure you have everything you need, like your sunscreen, hat, towel, sunglasses, swimmers like a minimal bikini or board shorts. It’s important to be sun smart at the beach, especially in summer, there is nothing worse than a sunburn.
Explore the city
There is so much to explore in your own backyard, so head on over to the city and see what’s out there. Most of the time there will be free things to see or do in the city in summer, to attract more people to come into the city, so make sure you take advantage of this!
Especially if it is Christmas time, there are lots of displays and things like that. They could even have Christmas lights on, you don’t even know what you could be missing out on, and it is certainly something you don’t want to miss! A good idea is to check online first, so see what is on in your local city.
Movie day / night
Not every day is going to be sunny in summer, there will more than likely be some rainy days, and on these days it is probably best to take inside. So, why not grab a couple of friends, or round up the family and have a movie day or night, whatever you feel like. These days with all the streaming services that are available, you are sure to find a movie that pleases everyone. What are you waiting for, get watching!
