One of the perennial questions of travel is whether to go on your own or travel with a companion. If you are thinking about travelling in Australia, there are pros and cons of each. Check http://www.australia.com/en for more information on being a traveller in Australia.
If you are considering travelling on your own to Australia, it can be one of the best places to do so in some respects – after all, the language is the same as ours and to a large extent the culture is the same too, so a single woman would not look out of place travelling on her own.
Many people in the UK also have many friends and family in Australia which also makes it easier as there is a safety network. One of the cons of travelling there on your own as a female is if you are on a driving holiday. The outback is a very harsh environment to be in and if you were to break down or run out of petrol on your own it could be extremely dangerous.
However, in most situations I would not have any hesitation in travelling there on my own. It is a wonderful, friendly place and it is easy to fit into most social situations. It is also a popular place for backpacking holidays and there are always plenty of like-minded tourists to make friends with along the way.
