Australia Tourism

Home to the Great Barrier Reef and iconic beaches and surf spots, Australia is the perfect destination for adventure seekers and lovers of beach getaways. Popularly known as the land of Kangaroos, Australia is both the smallest continent and the largest island country in the world. An evergrowing multicultural marvel, the country is famous for its beautiful blend of cosmopolitan cities, wild and enchanting outbacks, thriving wildlife and mesmerising beaches along the eastern coast.

Much of Australia's charm lies in its raw beauty. Friendly for both backpackers and luxury travellers, the country's beaches attract a large number of tourists each year. Visitors flock to experience the many watersports like surfing, scuba diving and snorkelling. In addition, the vast deserts, lush national parks and sanctuaries offer tourists an insight into what Australia has to offer on the wildlife front.

To add to its already diverse landscapes, the urban areas of Australia showcase their cultural and indigenous diversity in the form of contemporary cuisine, local populace, artforms and thriving events and festivals. Urban tourism in the country is a constant crowd puller and sheds light on how Australia is truly connected to the rest of the world despite being an island nation in the southern hemisphere.

Hygiene in Australia

It is a very hygeinic country for tourists and there are no vaccinations needed to visit as such. However, check if you are allergic to certain seafood, since the country is surrounded by waterbodies and seafood is a regular cuisine around this area.

Customs of Australia

Tipping for food has become a common practice for people in Australia even though it's a non-tipping country. Australians love a drink and the tradition is generally everyone takes turns and buying everyone in the group a drink. When it is your turn, it is called "your shout". Due to the weather much dining is done outside and if you are invited to someoneƕs house, it will quite often be for a barbeque. Other things you may not be used to is that Australians ride in the front seat in the taxi.

Carry your passport at all times with you, in case of emergency. Get a MyCard made for easy tranportation around the different cities. Just keep an eye out in general. The crime rate is very low and the people are friendly. So do not hesitate to ask for help!
