You will undoubtedly want to see as much of the Australian continent as possible. Although there are often enormous distances involved, traveling from place to place is easy via bus, plane, train or car.
Travel in Australia
The Australian landscape is vast and varied with arid deserts, golden beaches, rugged mountains and lush tropical forests, making it one of the most exciting places on earth to explore.
Australia is also a great place for adventure and ‘ultimate’ sports. Scuba diving, bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, sailing, surfing and climbing are as widely available as less extreme options such as bush walking and horse riding in the outback. Alternatively head for one of Australia’s vibrant and exciting cities such as Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne.
The cheapest and most popular way to travel is by bus and there is an extensive network operated by several companies including Greyhound. Discounted bus, air and rail passes can be readily purchased on arrival.
There is plenty of budget accommodation throughout the country, both through the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) and in independent hostels. Hostels are also great places to meet other young people of all nationalities.
