Australia Tourism

Situated in the southern part of the world, Australia is the perfect place for adventure seekers and people who love the sea. It is hands down, the best place to belt out your scuba diving skills as you enjoy the seafood by the shacks. For wildlife lovers, there are a handful of sanctuaries as well which are so vast in their size, it takes your breath away. Other than that, Australia as a country is very metropolitan in its nature and the vibe that it imparts. It is a melting pot of sorts for people from all around the world.

Best time to visit Australia

Spring (September to November) and Autumn (March to May) is the best time to visit Australia

The best time to visit Australia is Spring (September to November) and Autumn (March to May). Australia is a vast and diverse continent and lies on the southern hemisphere. There is something for everybody who plans to visit this place from vast beaches, desert experience, Great Barrier Reef, vineyard and so much more. Australia has four seasons, but they are precisely the opposite of what everyone else experiences and also has three different climate zones. Australia is an out and about the outdoor country and is open and accessible across various seasons. The warm sunny days provide great opportunities to explore beachside, go diving, snorkelling, road trips, and much more. During the fall, you can go to the rainforests, wetlands, and wildlife. Spring is the best time to visit national parks and go on a hiking trip to heart’s content. Winter is generally a low season but provides an excellent opportunity to learn skiing and pack your bags to the mountains.

Hygiene in Australia

It is a very hygeinic country for tourists and there are no vaccinations needed to visit as such. However, check if you are allergic to certain seafood, since the country is surrounded by waterbodies and seafood is a regular cuisine around this area.

Customs of Australia

Tipping for food has become a common practice for people in Australia even though it's a non-tipping country. Australians love a drink and the tradition is generally everyone takes turns and buying everyone in the group a drink. When it is your turn, it is called "your shout". Due to the weather much dining is done outside and if you are invited to someoneÕs house, it will quite often be for a barbeque. Other things you may not be used to is that Australians ride in the front seat in the taxi.

Tips for visiting Australia

Carry your passport at all times with you, in case of emergency. Get a MyCard made for easy tranportation around the different cities. Just keep an eye out in general. The crime rate is very low and the people are friendly. So do not hesitate to ask for help!

However if you are open and respectful towards other people, ideas and traditions you are likely to fit in and be successful in your new life. English is the most common language spoken here.
