Australia is a vast and diverse country and one which features on many peoples’ travel bucket lists. Whether it be for the outback, the coast, wildlife, or the culture, millions of people visit Australia every year from all over the world, and if you want to be one of them, then here are five different ways that you could see it.
1. On a road trip
If you want to see a lot of Australia and to truly immerse yourself in the different cultures across the country, then the best way to do so is by taking an epic road trip. You can easily pick up a car in most major cities from companies such as Burswood Car Rental and by planning a round trip you can drop them back off and fly back from where you started. The key to a good Australian road trip is to plan out where you will go and to make sure that you have budgeted enough for your biggest expense which will be fuel.
Backpacking provides a kind of freedom that you can’t get if you are travelling with a lot of luggage and is also one of the most economical ways to see Australia. As such a vast country, many people fly internally within Australia to get from place to place, and by backpacking, you won’t need to pay for hold luggage and can easily jump on a plane at a moment’s notice to get to your next destination. Backpacking is also a great way to explore Australia’s network of treks and trails, which are known to be some of the best in the world.
3. By boat
Australia has some of the most famous coastlands in the world and people come from every corner of the globe to enjoy its waters. If you get the chance to, then exploring the coast by boat is a great way to see some of Australia’s most famous aquatic wildlife and to soak up its world-famous sunshine. Although travelling around the entire coast of Australia by boat would be some mean feat, most beaches offer boat hire and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to day-trip excursions.
4. By horseback
Horseback riding tours are a great way to experience the wilder side of Australia, taking you into farmland and rural countries where you may not see another person for days. Experience the peace and quiet of the Australian bush, learn about the wildlife and sleep under the stars with your own four-legged equine companion providing you with a slower pace of transport.
5. By helicopter
Last but not least, to see the scenery like you’ve never seen it before, invest in a once in a lifetime helicopter tour. Whether you choose to see Sydney by sky or to take a scenic sunset flight over Uluru, Australia’s iconic sandstone formation, a helicopter tour is bound to be an experience that you will never forget.
