What to know before traveling to australia

  1. 1. JOHNBWILSON.INFO What To Know Before Traveling To Australia Prepared by John B. Wilson
  2. 2. Introduction Are you one of the lucky ones who will be traveling to Australia this year? Millions of people all over the world will be visiting the land down under, as well! Before you go, here are some things you’ll want to know about Australia. JOHNBWILSON.INFO
  3. 3. JOHNBWILSON.INFO Australia is Enormous! Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It’s massive! Even if you think you get it, it’s nearly impossible to fathom the amount of time it would take you to see all of Australia. For that reason, it’s important to carefully plan your journey. Otherwise, simply traveling from one location to another could easily eat up your precious vacation time. You’ll save more time by choosing one centralized location and stick to discovering just one small portion of Australia.
  4. 4. Australia is Super Expensive Even though the currency rate between the U.S. dollar and the Australian dollar is currently in favor of the U.S. dollar, that doesn’t mean you’re getting a bargain. It will probably cost you at least $200 U.S. dollars a day for accommodation and a modest meal. Then you have to factor in the money for transportation to your activities, and the charge for the activity itself. Basically, if you’re planning to travel to Australia later this year, start saving your pennies now. JOHNBWILSON.INFO
  5. 5. Wear Sunblock Australia is in the southern hemisphere and the sun is super strong. Don’t let a sunburn on the first day ruin your entire trip. Wear plenty of sunblock on any exposed skin. Invest in a cute sun hat for even more sun protection for your face. Keep a sheer cover up in your bag if the sun gets too intense.
  6. 6. No Tipping Required Tipping isn’t standard practice in Australia. It may feel weird not to tip your cab driver, waiter or hotel bellboy, but they will feel even weirder if you try to give them a tip. Service workers are paid very well in Australia and they don’t rely on tips to supplement their income. But it’s always appreciated if you express your gratitude for a job well done by smiling and saying thank you. Genuine appreciation always helps to make a service worker’s day more pleasant!
