Having an Easy Going Australian Journey
Australia is not a place where people are stressed. Even those who work hard during the day are ready to unwind and relax by 6pm at the latest, so a holiday in this country is certainly not something to stress about. This article will consider how to have the laid back and carefree holiday that you deserve and need.
One important thing to do to ease into a holiday and relax is to have everything booked and organised beforehand so that there is no need to worry about finances, time frames and organisation.
Booking Sydney hostels for when you arrive is the first important step so that you can dump your bags and head out into Darling Harbour for a Kangaroo Steak and a bottle of wine from any of the numerous Australian Wine regions.
Other elements of the holiday that you will need to book are domestic flights between states, hotels in your other destinations and hire cars if you wish to drive out into the outback or over to the Blue Mountains. Booking in advance is important because the costs are high and you will need plan your budget well in advance.
Pick Three Spots
If you are going to Australia for any amount of time between two weeks and a month then you should pick three locations to visit. The travel time between locations means that you will lose a day between each area, but you can branch out by car from any of your main base points.
When in Melbourne, for example, you can take a day trip along the Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell. This town is situated alongside the Twelve Apostles and spending the night in Port Campbell accommodation will allow you to see what is simply the most impressive sunset you will ever see behind this famous outcrop of rock. Other day trips out from Brisbane and Sydney are possible too, but you should choose three main areas in which to stay to avoid travelling for more time than you get to enjoy.
Chuck it on the Barbie
Australian relaxation is all about chucking a few sausages and steaks on the barbeque and enjoying a few pleasant beers. Australia is littered with public barbeques for this reason and having a cook up on one of these is simply the best way to relax and unwind on an Aussie holiday. Public barbeques can be found on beaches and in national parks, so take your pick and start cooking.
Whilst exploring Australia is certainly required on an Aussie holiday, there is no doubt that simply relaxing on the beach in the sun is one of the best ways to unwind in the world. There are far too many beaches to choose from, but you should seek to experience both the popular and the unknown. Spending time on Bondi Beach and Surfers’ Paradise with all of the other tourists is all good fun, but there are also countless unknown and quieter beaches to be discovered if you look in the right places.
