Australia is a huge land with unique climate, fauna, and flora, and it is a dream destination for many curious travelers worldwide. However, due to its uniqueness, there are some tips you should obey if you want to survive the travel to the largest country in Oceania.
Check the weather forecast
The visit to Australia usually takes a long period of time; you won’t even consider going there unless it is a month or two months-long holiday. Because of that, packing can be really tricky, especially if you want to explore the whole country. Australia has a huge diversity in the climate: from desert to temperate. However, you maybe won’t always have the planned weather, but before you start packing your suitcase, check the long-range weather forecast.
Be aware of Mother Nature
The ozone layer is thinned over Australia and because of that, the UV radiation is much more intense there than anywhere else on the planet. According to some research, Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world. Be responsible! Always apply a good amount of sun screen before you step ou of your hotel.
Check the prices in restaurants/cafes
In Australia, the price of food might come as a shock to you. One course of meal costs at least $15-20, even in a budget restaurant. If you don’t want to spend your savings on food, cook your own meals.
Mix with the locals
Aussies are very kind and friendly. They will help you with any problem you have. So don’t be afraid to mix with them. You will maybe find a lifelong friendship.
