Australia is a big country, and it’s got a lot to offer any traveller who wants to explore it. It’s a country with a long history, a great mixture of people, and all kinds of beautiful sights, sounds, and smells you won’t find anywhere else in the world. It can be a confusing country to try and get around, and it has all kinds of animal species that can make even the most experienced traveller turn tail and run!
And because of things like this, it’s a great country to take a road trip around, and it’ll be an experience you never forget! But you’re going to need to keep some things in mind before you try a trip like this out, so let’s get into some of those points below.
You’ll Want to Go in the Spring
Which is Autumn in Australia! It’s a time of year that won’t be too hot, and definitely won’t be too cold, and you’re going to love the milder climate around you as you spend most of the day inside of a potentially stuffy car. You don’t want to have to constantly blast the air con; that’s just going to drain your battery.
And if you’re someone who wants to try and get around the whole country, and you’ve blocked out a few months from work to do just that, you’ll be able to circle round and get back to your starting destination by the time the summer rolls around. Melbourne is a perfect destination in this kind of hot weather!
You’ll Want to Hit the Beaches
You’re road tripping around Australia, but where is it you want to go the most? What sights do you want to witness with your own eyes? Maybe you want to see Uluru up close, and witness how it changes colours in the light? Maybe you want to hold a Koala in your arms, and get one of the best pictures you’ve ever taken? Well, whatever it is you want to do, make sure you’re hitting the beaches as well!
Bondi beach is a popular tourist destination, of course, but you want to see best beach in Australia, don’t you? You want to get all the golden sand between your toes, and smell the sea air on the horizon? Well, do some research now, and coordinate your GPS accordingly!
You’ll Need to Protect Against the Bugs
There’s a lot of bugs in Australia, and if you’re choosing to pitch tents and sleep in the car or van from time to time, you’re going to have to protect against them. You’ll want to take some bug spray with you, to cover your skin up with at night, and then some bite cream for any areas you missed in the morning. Bugs will find any patch of your skin that’s clean of the disgusting spray, no matter where that might be!
An Australian road trip is going to be a lot of fun, but make sure you prepare properly.
