Tips For Travelling Australia
Here are a few tips for planning a trip travelling Australia
When Travelling around or part of Australia your main costs are fuel, accommodation, food, activities and souvenirs. Allow for repairs for your vehicle or camping equipment and any other unforeseen costs that may occur.
As a general rule visit southern Australia in summer and northern Australia in winter
If you have 2 or 4 months available this is enough time to travel half of Australia either the Eastern half or Western half, but is more suited to 3 to 4 months. The extra month allows for plenty of sightseeing.
If you are flying to a location remember you have to be at airport at least an hour or maybe 2 hours before departure – take into account that flights can be delayed occasionally
Are you interested in saving money when you camp or travel and hope to stay in as many free or cheap campsites, look for a map or camping guide book that will advise you of free and cheap camp sites
When you are starting to plan your initial itinerary you need to have worked out about how many weeks or months you have to travel.
Pack as least as possible, which is not easy to do as there is a lot of things required especially if you are travelling as a family. Remember an overloaded vehicle has to work harder, placing more strain on tyres and chassis etc .and increasing fuel consumption Having travel insurance will help make your holiday stress free. You will have the comfort of knowing help is there if the unexpected does happen, I certainly hope it doesn’t happen to you. But unfortunately it does happen and it can happen anytime. Things get stolen or lost, we get sick or injured, flights or holidays have to be cancelled for unexpected events.
Australia is so vast that it is not likely that you will see it all, but even to see parts of it is spectacular, you will have an amazing adventure!!
The distances and the time required to travelling Australia can vary because of a lot of factors like what vehicle used, are you towing an RV or trailer, type of roads or terrain, how long you stay at each destination etc.
Central Australia can get temperatures up to 40 to 45 degrees Celsius in summer. Coober Pedy has been known to get extreme temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius that is why they have underground homes. So the best times to travel in these areas is April to September. June and July are very popular being the coolest months and also it is around school holiday time.
