Australia has two parts. The central and western areas of Australia are arid and flat with sparse populations, while the coastal parts of Australia are widely populated and thriving. Because of these differences many people visit Australia.
Now Australia is booming – the population is growing faster than any other wealthy nation, its multiculturalism is harmonious, and the array of things to visit is amazing. Australia has 25,800km of coastline and over 7,000 beaches so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to beach holidays. Yorke Peninsula on the south coast of Australia is a popular surfing spot and is near Kangaroo Island, one of the best places to spot these amazing marsupials.
You have to go into the outback at least once during your time in Australia, and Uluru (Ayers Rock) right in the centre of Australia is as good a place as any. Try to visit either at dawn or sunset when the shifting light dramatically changes the sacred rock’s colour and appearance.
For more natural phenomena, get over to Kakadu National Park in the north of Australia, the country’s largest park. Here you can touch rock that is 2,000 million years old, find seed pods not found anywhere else in the world, and discover new mammals and reptiles. How cool is that? There is also some rock art at nearby galleries.
For diving nuts, the Great Barrier Reef has to be explored. So huge, it is the only living thing visible from space, and is home to 1,500 species of fish, 400 types of coral and six types of turtle. If you have longed to swim with manta rays, this is probably the best chance you will ever get.
Australia is huge, and if you are planning to drive across it, remember the distances are much longer than you might anticipate. Book you flight to Australia with Vayama now!
Barbecues ("barbies") are a big part of Australian culture. If invited to a barbecue in Australia, you'll find that they're a fun and popular social gathering. In Australia, people will typically bring their own beer or wine for their own consumption, or at very informal barbecues, you may even be asked to bring your own meat for the grill
Those are just a few little guidelines on table manners in Australia, but below is a list of even more etiquette hints for your trip to Australia.
You will find that people in Australia are very open-minded and understanding when it comes to people visiting from other countries. Over one-fifth of Australians were born to immigrant parents, making the country somewhat of a melting pot. Because of this, Australians are generally accepting of different cultures visiting their country. Do keep the above etiquette guidelines in mind, and enjoy the exotic animals, barbecues, and the sights on your trip to Australia!
