Tourist Tips For Travelling Australia

Traveltips

Australia is a huge country and an extremely popular holiday destination. For those who are visiting here are a few tourist tips that should help you on your way.

 

Sun Protection

This may seem a strange one to start with, but you must understand that the sun in the southern hemisphere is much stronger than in the northern hemisphere. Believe it or not €˜burn time€™ can be as little as 8 minutes! Wherever you are in this glorious country you should always smear yourself with sunscreen containing SPF30+. Don’€™t worry about packing too much as you can buy the strong stuff easily when here. It is also wise to wear a shirt/blouse and a hat. The worst thing that could happen to you is that you are laid up with sunburn when you should be out and about enjoying yourself.

Swimming

You will find some of the best beaches in the world here. Just be aware that tides and waves are much stronger than you will have encountered elsewhere. There are also sharks and jellyfish to be aware of; however the incident rate of this sort of problem is extremely low. As long as you look and listen to the local life-guards you will have no problems. Clear signs are posted as to where and when it is safe to swim. By following these and the advice of the life-guards you will have a fabulous time on the beach.

Barbeques

Aussies are famous for their friendliness as well as their fondness for a €˜Barbie€™. You are certain to meet lots of great locals and the likelihood is you will be invited to a barbie. Just remember a couple of things; Take along some wine or beer to share and if at all possible grab something to put on the BBQ.

Your new friends will see this as good manners and the fact you know something about the way of life here. The other advantage of attending such a get together is:

Local Knowledge

You can have all the guide books in the world to help you along while here, but you cannot beat local knowledge. €˜Inside€™ information on places to go and things to see particularly in the surrounding area is invaluable. Take full advantage of this and don’t be afraid to jot a few things down. By asking questions and taking local advice you will get far more from your stay.
