It was last year that we saw Parineeti Chopra gushing about how much she loves visiting the Land Down Under. Only if we knew she was soon going to appointed the brand ambassador of Tourism Australia in 2017. Very recently, she was honoured as the first Indian woman ambassador to be a part of the ‘Friend Of Australia’ advocacy panel.
Being a ‘Friend of Australia’ comes with many awesome perks and one of them is you get to explore the country like never before and that is precisely what Parineeti did.
From experiencing Australia’s best coastal activities & witnessing its exotic wildlife to getting in touch with the rugged outback and tasting great variety of world class food, her travel was a mix of the best Australian experiences. While she documented her travels through some stunning Instagram pictures, here are our favourite picks that speak of the amazing time she has had Down Under.
Cuddling with Koalas at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is one adorable way to start an Australian holiday. She would have been thrilled to know that the sanctuary this picture is taken at is the first and the largest Koala Sanctuary in the World.
Sheer indulgence. Indulging in the unique Australian dining experience at the Alchemy Restaurant and Bar. With exquisite cuisine at a riverside venue that overlooks the Brisbane river and its gorgeous Story Bridge, this one looks like a perfect romantic dinner setup.
Hopping on a Whale Watching Cruise on the Gold Coast and spotting the humpback whales being ever so active in their habitat is what Parineeti describes as her “Dream Come True” moment.
Perfect timing! With playful Dolphins jumping all around, this picture was snapped at Sea World, Gold Coast's exotic & extensive Marine Park. It is an aquatic paradise that displays a stunning array of marine animals and offers exciting rides and shows to its thrilled visitors.
Finding a piece of Japan in Australia. Etsu Izakaya is a modern Japanese dining at Gold Coast. Amongst its many culinary treats, the place is most known for its delicious Sushi and Sashimi, which is the exact choice Parineeti made on her visit here.
Tamborine Mountain Distillery is Australia’s most Internationally-awarded Distillery and Liquor brand. Known to be the manufacturers of fine Vodkas, Liqueurs, Schnapps & Rum, it comes as a no surprise that Parineeti was spotted trying out some of their exquisite Liqueur and Schnapps.
All set in her dive gear, ready to explore Gold Coast for what it's most known for, the plentiful marine life. A guided Snorkeling or Scuba diving session to the best spots for underwater viewing is all you need once you’re here.
