Being in a nation where colours of life and fantastic features of mother nature welcomes you with warm hands, means to find solace and live your life there. This happens truly when you visit Australia, the smallest and incredible continent of the world. In order to experience a great Australian time, find out the things that you should know beforehand.
1. History and Culture
In the past the British settlers treated very badly with the original inhabitants of the people. Children were taken and aborigines suffered badly. The imperial rule destroyed the peace and now most of the population are actually British. It is of utmost importance that we pay respect and show love towards the aborigines and try to develop their community. The culture of Australia is very diverse and their tradition is still evident among the people. Since the British colonial period Australia has seen a diverse national culture which was purely influenced by the immigrants from other parts of the world.
2. Middle Of Nowhere
Most of the middle parts of Australia is barren without any trace of habitable zone. They are dry and warm regions. If you happen to travel through those regions then make sure you carry water bottles, scarves and sunscreen with you. Also hire a reliable car to travel as Australia has very long distance areas that can get really tough to travel if you are not appropriately prepared. Before you start your journey plan your trip properly.
3. High Price Tags
Prices of commodities can be really high if you are feeling to shop in Australia. You can get budget hotels and cheap restaurants, but expecting low rates in big cities such as Sydney, Melbourne will leave you heart-broken. But if you are looking to stay in camps which are in abundant in Australia then you can easily save a lot of money. Also plan on buying food stuffs from supermarkets that can get cheap sometimes.
4. Countryside Beauty
Of course there are wonderful locations and man-made wonders to visit in Australia such as Opera House, Art galleries, and other city life features. But if you want to explore Australia in its true sense then jump into Tasmania and experience the natural beauty of the region. The small towns and villages are the treats for people with eyes for soothing beauty and not any artificial things. Countless virgin beaches, breathtaking views of the sunset and spectacular views of the gorges will surely swoon you. And cities are nowhere near to the beauties of these places.
5. Road Trip Exploration
You know you have to explore the inner Australia, but how? Well, that can be arranged if you opt for road trip. Nothing could be better than a car which is pocket-friendly and can take you anywhere. For a truly unforgettable journey live like a wild bird, moving from one place to another and gather experience to cherish forever
