Australia travelogue

Tour of Australia in brief

There aren’t enough colorful adjectives and the endless impressions make it hard to keep it short. I’ll try anyway, and I hope you’ll be on your way to the airport for new adventures by the time you’ve finished reading this.

Why choose the land down under?

Australia is the gift that keeps on giving. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you realize Australia is 180 times the size of Denmark and the tour starts all over again.

I did a semester in the Gold Coast where I spent four months and let me just start there. If you want to learn to surf, think 70 km of coastline sounds ok, love hiking in the mountains, are always up for a city break with the gas pedal to the floor or are looking for restaurants with ocean views, I would book my trip to the Gold Coast now.

When to start preparing?

The old advice “start early” also applies here. I started my preparation three months in advance and still felt a bit rushed at the end. There’s always one thing you’ve forgotten and as soon as you’ve fixed one challenge, a new one arises. Depending on how long your tour of Australia lasts, visas can take some time. However, if you’re just traveling as a tourist for less than 90 days, it’s super easy and can be applied for online HERE.

Upfront housing or pure rock n roll?

It depends on how you feel most comfortable and what type of trip you’re going on. If you’re staying in the same place for a long period of time, I would always arrange accommodation from home, but if you’re touring Australia, I would try to keep some more freedom. This can either be done by not booking everything from home, or by working with an agency that has traveled to Australia and knows exactly what’s a go and what’s a no-go.

Experiences you can’t miss

Australia has a lot of hidden gems that you probably haven’t heard of before. Paddock Bakery in Gold Coast is the best cafe I’ve ever been to! A pizza at El Capitano in Noosa just tastes better with your feet in the sand and don’t miss out on getting your dancing shoes on at Prohibition in Brisbane with the coolest light show in town.

What’s the cost of living like?

The prices are much the same as at home, but basically it comes down to your consumption. You can easily shop cheaply if you’re a bargain hunter like me, and you can also easily eat out without breaking your budget. Alcohol and fruit are expensive, but if you need to fill up your car or use public transportation, you can go a long way for very little money.

How do I get from A to B?

Simply put, the long trips require a car or plane ticket and the short trips require a bike or skateboard. It depends on where you are, but it’s a huge country and although distances look short on Google Maps, it always takes a little longer. Renting or buying a car in Australia is a great investment, especially if you can share the costs.

If you want to meet new people, travel with other young people on a group tour or take advantage of a bus pass to the east coast. It will be the best investment you can make!
