A trip to Australia will be one of the most exciting and fascinating trips that you are ever likely to take, not only will you essentially be traveling to the other side of the world but you will also be exploring one of the world’s most interesting countries. Each year, millions of foreigners make the trip ‘down under’ for an adventurous vacation in Australia and more often than not, it isn’t long before they are heading back there.
If you have a trip to Australia doing up then here is what you can expect from your vacation.
One of the biggest draws of Australia is the level of outstanding natural beauty which it can offer tourists. From the great coral expanse of the Great Barrier Reef which houses hundreds of thousands of rare and incredible species, to the great forest canopy of the Blue Mountains and the impending Ayers Rock or Uluru in the heart of Alice Springs, there is so much to explore in this country. Much of the best natural sights are very well spread out, such is the size of the country so you will need to ensure that you plan your trip well.
Australia has some outstanding cities which all vary in terms of what they can give the tourist. Sydney is by far and away the most popular of the Australian cities and its harbor attracts millions each year, iconic landmarks such as the Harbor Bridge and the intricately designed Opera House are the most sought after sights. Perth on the west coast is also a great city, perfect for foodies and nature lovers and Melbourne is the official party city of the country with plenty of great places for nights out and regular sporting events taking place.
The Aussies are some of the friendliest and laid back people on earth and when you see where they live, you will understand why. Because of the large amount of tourism into the country, the country itself, and the locals are more than geared up to welcome you and the people in my experience are generous and helpful to a fault. Don’t panic if you get lost in the country, there will always be someone to point you in the right direction.
On a trip to Australia, you can expect to spend a great deal of money, not only are flights expensive from almost everywhere in the world, the cost of living is pretty high in the majority of the country. Make sure that before you go, you make sure that you have enough money to pay for your trip and whilst living on a budget in the country is possible, it is much more difficult than in any other part of the world. Before you leave home, check out local prices so that you can be best prepared.
Your trip to Australia will be like no other and you must make sure that your itinerary is well thought out so that you can make the most of your trip to Oz.
