Australia often secures a spot at the top of many travelers’ wish lists, and rightfully so. Nestled far away in the Southern Hemisphere, it provides an opportunity to explore lands remarkably different from home. Renowned for its incredible wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, intriguing insects, and a laid-back lifestyle, Australia is a playground of fun and excitement.
One appealing aspect for many travelers is the opportunity to spend a year or two working while journeying throughout the country. This is precisely the experience I enjoyed during my extraordinary Australian adventure. For nearly two years, I lived out of my reliable campervan, traversing and working across this diverse country.
Embarking on such a massive adventure can be overwhelming initially, but this travel guide to Australia is here to address all your queries and more! I aim to equip you with the resources to explore the country in a way that best suits you, touching on things to do, how to budget realistically, and a host of other details.
During my time in Australia, I developed a deep love for multiple-day hikes, taking in the rich and varied terrain this country has to offer. Water sports, including surfing and snorkeling, became regular activities, taking advantage of the country’s extensive coastline. Even winter sports enthusiasts will find their place here, as Australia hosts some excellent winter destinations.
So, grab a cool drink, throw another shrimp on the barbie, and let’s journey to the remarkable land Down Under!
