#1  A Trip To Fraser Island

 

This is known as one of the largest islands in the world, and it has become one of the most popular destinations for the backpackers. You can also explore this place in different ways, but the most popular one till now is the “TAG-ALONG-TOUR”. What this means is joining a group of travelers, and enjoy the view of the sandy island in a big awesome 4 X 4 with your guide. You will get the opportunity to drive on the vast beach, visit the most beautiful places i.e. S.S. Maheno and the wonderful Lake McKenzie.

 

#2  Sydney

 

No matter how much time you invest to explore Sydney, but you still won’t get to see everything. Changing and growing with time, this city has so much to offer to its travelers who come here from different parts of the world. Whether you are planning a beach holiday with your friends i.e. Bondi, Coogee or Mau or love mountain hiking or wish to capture Opera House through your lens, Sydney is the perfect destination for everyone. It’s more like going to London and Cornwall at the same time.

 

#3  Go For A Road Trip

 

As one of the well-known heritage of Australia, this 243-kilometer road stretch is a must go if you’re planning a trip to South east coast of Australia. Call your buddy, buy some snacks, choose some good road tunes, get whatever vehicle you want and hit the road. You’ll enjoy the ride along the coast, and love the small towns and the road which takes you to Port Cambell National Park. You should never ever miss this road trip if you visit Australia.

 

#4  Surfing

 

This must be on the top list of the travelers, and there won’t be any better place to learn the beauty of riding waves on a board than the seas of OZ. You can also learn surfing through different ways, for instance- choose your own board and jump in the sea. The second option is to look for a reputed surf school with good instructors who can help you learn about the different kinds of waves. No matter which way you choose, it’s going to be a lot of fun

 

#5  Enjoy The Whitsundays Tour

 

Along with the backpacking experience, you can also find many travelers going for the Whitsundays tour. There are many reasons why it has gained a lot of popularity among the travelers. You won’t ever get an opportunity to see such a beautiful shore.

 

There are many options to choose for a Whitsunday tour, but most of them usually involve some kind of boat (it can either be big or small or peaceful/noisy). Just imagine a night under the stars with delicious sea food. What more do you want? This is a kind of experience which you won’t ever forget.

#6  Scuba Diving

So you must have tried scuba diving and wonder “is there anything different in Australia which I should see”? You are absolutely wrong if you’re thinking the same. Scuba diving in Australia will be an unforgettable experience if you do it at GREAT BARRIER REEF. This is one of the most magical places where you can find colorful coral and sparkling fishes. They will welcome you with their big hearts and show their beautiful homes. You might even get lucky to see a turtle.

 

#7  Noosa

Well, it is known for its big and flashy apartments, luxurious shops and well-maintained beaches. This is a kind of place which is mostly visited by the celebrities. However, if you’re thinking of visiting a site which is a little less noisy, then go for camping and canoeing at Gagaju Bush Camp. It is located on Noosa River, and this will give you a perfect community feel. You can try canoeing all throughout the day, and enjoy campfire at nights.

 

#8  Melbourne

You either love Sydney or Melbourne. That’s what most of the people says. However, both these cities are beautiful in their own ways. Melbourne has impressive cafes, shops and art stores while Sydney is a popular tourist attraction. Plan an afternoon walk for the ACMI museum. You should also visit Melbourne if you’re a big NEIGHBOURS fan. Enjoy the suburbs tours which leave from the city on a daily basis.

 

#9  BYRON BAY

It’s one of the favorite spots for surfers. No matter when you go, you’ll always find surfers with their boards. It’s a small town where you can enjoy a walk, when not surfing and has some great things to offer. One of the best things which you must do is take a walk up to CAPE BYRON & BYRON BAY LIGHTHOUSE, where you will enjoy an amazing view. If you’re lucky, you may even see the dolphins or whales in the sea. It is mostly visited by locals and backpackers.

 

#10  HORSEBACK RIDING IN THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS

You must have heard of the wild horses in Snowy Wilderness. It’s a privately owned sanctuary. While it’s not everyone who can ride the horses (no matter whether you’re a professional horse rider or not), you can enjoy the beauty of these majestic creatures.

Australia. It’s big. It’s beautiful. And you will fall in love with its beauty. Shortlist the places which you want to visit. The challenge is to explore as many places as you can. This incredible continent has some amazing sights and experiences that you’ll always cherish.

 

Happy Travelling!

Language of Aussies

Some common travel advice is to learn the local language before you go somewhere. While this is a noble endeavor, don’t view it as a necessity for traveling somewhere. If you learn a language purely to travel to its country of use, then it likely won’t be a very thorough understanding you have (unless you plan to not just travel but immigrate). At best, you’ll have a full command of the language and fit in much more easily with the locals. However, most likely, you’ll have a token understanding of the local language, and any mistakes will be easily spotted, outing you as the tourist you apparently don’t want to be identified as. The reality is, if you speak English, you’re good to travel in most of the world. English is the international language of business in many countries, making it the de facto language of much of the Earth. You can thank early English imperialism for this, but chances are, if someone recognizes you as a tourist it’ll be much easier for the both of you to speak English.

Many travelers like to live a sort of Puritan lifestyle while out traveling, in order to gain more of a connection with their surroundings and force themselves to appreciate the areas that they visit. Unless you fully know that this is for you, I would not recommend it. Not only are you cut off from communication in the chance of an emergency, but you are cut off from most forms of communication entirely. You can’t rely on strangers or public services to stay connected to the rest of the world, even while you explore it. Get a good charging setup as well, to ensure that you don’t have to go without a reliable source of information. Your phone isn’t just a plaything or a source of entertainment; it can be your lifeline as long as it’s charged and you have a network.

When you travel, it can be tempting to wing it. Don’t take the chance. You have a wealth of information and possible materials to choose from and shouldn’t deprive yourself for an imitation of spirituality. Explore the world, but be safe and sensible.

Plan to Travel

If you plan on traveling anytime soon, then you’ve hopefully read and researched a lot about your destination, what to bring, and where to go. You’ve no doubt looked extensively into the price to see when you can afford to go, and you’ve probably planned your route through whatever country or countries you plan on seeing on your time away. However, more information never hurt anyone. Here are a few things you might not have considered during your pre-travel research.

Have you thought about what you need in order to travel? Sure, food, water, and shelter are accounted for first, maybe entertainment if the transit part of travel doesn’t interest you as much as the sightseeing. However, there are a variety of things that the average traveler lacks, and not only in terms of items (though those can be plenty useful too). For one, how are you carrying your luggage? Assuming you don’t plan to traverse a country with just the clothes on your back, you have stuff to carry and not a lot of room to carry it, relatively speaking.

Many people, especially members of the younger crowd, enjoy backpacking as a travel method in order to travel light and not let material possessions weigh them down. If you plan on following this philosophy, you should probably invest in a top-of-the-line backpack. That may seem like common knowledge, but what makes a good backpack? For one, you’ll want a backpack with a strap that you can clip across your chest. When you’re not traveling long distances, you may not notice how much a small thing like this strap matters, but go on any sort of hike and you’ll see soon enough. A backpack that lets you strap it across you as well as onto your shoulders enables you to travel long distances without the pack slipping as much, and doesn’t let the backpack loose to hit you in the back hundreds of times while you’re moving. If you ever need to run while you’re traveling on foot, this can be a lifesaver. You’ll also want your main luggage carrier to be waterproof, durable, and have plenty of pockets along with a large central space. The need for waterproofing isn’t just if you happen to drop your bag in a puddle somewhere along your way. If it rains and you don’t have the proper bag, you’re messing up everything you need to travel. If the humidity gets to be too high, you might find some mold in your bag the next time you open it. Regardless of what your travel plans are, find a good waterproofed bag to carry the stuff that you’ll need to you every day. Durability is an obvious need as far as carrying your things, but it’s better to plan this sort of thing than realizing you should have done it when your bag rips and all your things tumble out. Or worse, find a small rip at the end of the day that things have nevertheless found a way to escape out of. Finally, you want as many pockets as you can comfortably fit in your bag. When traveling, you want your stuff compartmentalized for two reasons: organization and security. The organization is obvious; if each pocket has a purpose, then finding and using what you need is that much easier while you can busy your mind with the more important aspects of travel. However, security, while more of a fringe benefit, is not to be underestimated. If a thief can open up your bag and see everything at in one glance, then they can loot your valuables that much faster. Split what’s valuable and useful and make it inconspicuous. While this doesn’t stop thieves from taking the whole bag, it should slow them down enough either way for you to at least be aware, if not able to recover your belongings.
