If you've travelled all the way to Australia you'll want to get the most out of your journey. Here are a few ways to help you do that..
Spend your hard earned money on travel and tours and not on alcohol.
Book all the things you really want to do at the start of your trip.
Try to keep off your phone and enjoy your surroundings and speak to people.
Travel with people that you love being with.
Be brave and go to some places by yourself.
GET OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
Most people that go backpacking in Australia will travel along the east coast and then maybe go to Melbourne.
But some of the most amazing experiences you can have are elsewhere.
Sleeping out under the stars in the Red Centre, snorkelling with whale sharks on the Ningaloo Reef on the west coast, going on safari in Kakadu National Park and sleeping underground in Coober Pedy are just some of the amazing things you can do if you get off the beaten track.
