Once upon a time, no matter how rewarding it was in the end, travelling abroad could be quite an ordeal. Intensive planning, exorbitant expense, and days or weeks of travel before reaching the final destination meant that travelling to different countries was a rare treat for most people. Today, travelling abroad is far more common and affordable. In fact, many are able to go abroad for their holidays at least once a year, if not more often.
Australia has become one of the most popular destinations for many of these world travellers. The country provides an alluring blend of laid-back culture, pleasant weather, and warm, sandy beaches perfect for sunning or surfing. Although it’s on the other side of the globe, an international flight to Sydney, Australia takes fewer than 24 hours from most cities throughout the world.
The first thing that may strike those from the U.K. or other European countries will be the sheer mind-boggling size of Australia. Whereas they may be able to drive easily from one city to the next in the course of a few hours or even a day in their home country, it can take up to several days in Australia. Flying between major or capital cities is often the most affordable or speediest course of action here.
In order to get the most out of your visit to Australia, it’s essential that you shop around for the best flight deals, plan your trip ahead of time to include all your must-see locations, and book your travel arrangements and rooms in advance. Doing as much as you can before your trip ensures you will be spending more on the things you really want to do and less time tending to details while on your trip to the Land Down Under.
