Australia is a great country to visit, full of stunning landscapes, fun cities, and great people. It’s the perfect place to travel to on your own, as you are sure to make friends and create lifelong memories. To help you plan and enjoy the ultimate solo trip to Australia, you’re going to need to keep these tips in mind:
The Best Time of Year to Visit
The general thought is to visit Australia during its summer months when the air is hot, and you can enjoy the full scope of water sports and beaches. Of course, even winter is going to seem like a beautiful summer day for some of you. The average temperature in July, by all means, the dead of winter in Australia, will rarely drop below 57°F and is on average in the low to mid-60s.
Choosing Your Type of Travel
Budgeting is going to be key when it comes to planning your trip, especially how you intend to get from point A to point B.
City breaks are great because they allow you to really explore a destination to its fullest. There are often some great day trips to enjoy, and overall the experience is very fulfilling without being too hard on the budget. That is, of course, so long as the accommodation costs can be factored in accordingly.
For a huge trip, you will want to go cross-country, which means in most cases, you will either need to book multiple flights, rent a vehicle, or to see about the train options and costs. Weigh the pros and cons of each transportation option.
Want to explore the beaches? The cities? You can create a thematic trip that helps you see all the best aspects of one type of destination. This is a good option if you want to go cross-country, but can’t take a lot of time off.
Know What’s Uniquely Offered in Each State
Australia’s states do have different rules and regulations, just as the United States’ do. It is for this reason that it’s important to search for what each state offers before you visit. You could spend an incredible night in a brothel, for example, but it is important only to visit registered brothels in the states that legally allow and regulate them. This is how you will ensure you get the best experience, especially if it’s your first time. Cleos on Nile, for example, is one of Brisbane’s best options, and a visit will be sure to provide you with an unforgettable night in five-star comfort.
Make Friends Along the Way
Making friends is going to be really easy, especially if you opt for hostels and other similar boarding options on the go. Australia is a prime place to visit on your “gap year,” meaning that there are a lot of people in their 20s and even 30s who are up for partying, making friends, and going on adventures.
Learn Something New Wherever You Go
Try to take a class, go to a museum, or take a tour. Learn something at every destination, and you’ll go home enriched and fulfilled.
