Should I select a specific region while visiting Australia?
The sheer size of Australia makes it difficult to see the country in just a few days or a week. If you have limited time, it is a good idea to choose a specific region and explore it fully. If you have three weeks or more, you could fit in one or two regions, like New South Wales or the Gold Coast. Ideally, we recommend spending at least 10 days or a fortnight in Australia. But again, the longer you stay, the better.
What to bring on a vacation to Australia?
There are a few travel essentials that you should not leave off your packing list. These include an Australian adapter, a waterproof phone case, a broad-brimmed hat, and reef-friendly sunscreen. Be sure to pack a water bottle and a good first aid kit. It is also advisable to take some activated charcoal in case you have tummy issues, and a sarong always comes in handy as a towel and shade cloth. and do not forget to organize travel insurance before you leave.
What is the best time to visit Australia?
The best time to visit Australia is during the spring between September and November and the fall between March and May when the weather is at its best and things are quieter on the tourist front. The best time to visit the areas on the coast is during the dry season from April to November, while the inner areas of the country, such as the outback, are best visited when it is cooler between March and May, or September and November.
