Australia: A Little Information For Visitors.
Australia: Come and find a myriad of wonderful things to do, sights to see, animals to enjoy.
Travel My Australia will help you to plan and enjoy the best holiday of your life.
Travel to Australia, a land of ancient culture and modern lifestyle.
Come to Australia and you'll find a wonderful mix of ancient Aboriginal culture and modern European and Oriental influence.
The climate in Australia is fantastic and if you're looking for outstanding and exciting travel opportunities, then this is a place you simply must visit.
There is just so much to do and see here in this wonderful country that you'll never have enough time to see it all.
In places like Uluru, ( Ayers Rock to all those who don't speak the language), which is a great big rock right in the middle of the outback, you can see ancient aboriginal rock art, painted by the local people hundreds (or perhaps even thousands ) of years ago.
Maybe you might even purchase some of the local art to take with you as a reminder of the best holiday of your life...
As for Victoria, the beautiful countryside will blow you away.
Not stark like the "outback" states but the mountain country is something else.
You can ski in the snow in Victoria in winter and you can roast in the summer and it's not uncommon for Melbourne, the capital, to have all four seasons in one day.....
South Australia has some of the finest vineyards in the world, (the cellar doors will astound those who like to try a drop), and some of the nicest churches (perhaps worth a visit after you've tried a drop too many...?).
Adelaide is called the "City of Churches" after all.
The weather in South Australia is quite visitor friendly, unlike so much of Oz, but it can get extremely hot in the summer (that's from November to March for our visitors from the Northern hemisphere) and likewise quite cool in the winter months.
The Northern Territory, home of Kakadu National Park and Alice Springs, is Australia's "wildlife sanctuary".
Here you can see crocodiles and snakes, wild bulls and horses and camels, scorpions and even some of the biggest termites in the world, if that's what turns you on...
The Northern Territory can be wild and dangerous, the people are warm and friendly, the weather is always hot and sultry, it's a magical place.
Then there's Tasmania, the "little" island just to the south of the mainland.
Old growth forest abounds, penguins flourish and the Tasmanian Devil is alive and well.
Bed and breakfast or great hotels, the choice is yours, just don't forget to take your warm, waterproof clothes with you.
And we mustn't forget the Australian Capital Territory or the ACT as it's known in Oz.
This is the place where the federal government of Australia sits, the place where our national treasures are held and where all the important decisions of state are made.
The climate is much the same as New South Wales, I guess you'd expect as much considering it's location, (it's an enclave of that state for those who don't know).
Canberra, it's capital, and "The ACT" are often used to mean the same place but whatever you call it many believe it's still full of hot air, who am I to argue?
A word of general warning is probably not out of place here.
If you intend to travel within Australia the distances between centres can be vast.
Looking at any map, unfortunately, doesn't give the first time visitor any real idea as to how far it is between major cities, or how long it will take to travel.
As an example, Sydney to Brisbane is only a few centimetres on most maps but it will take you 12 - 16 hours to drive.
There are wonderful beaches, probably the best in the world in my humble opinion, on which to idle away lazy days, and stark outback (otherwise known as "the bush") to explore in Queensland.
The climate is superb; they don't call Queensland "The Sunshine State" without good reason.
New South Wales, or "The Premier State" as they like to be known, is the business capital of Au
These will be marked as such on most maps and should not present any problems most of the time but on occasions they will become impassable, if you intend to travel any distance on these dirt roads it's wise to seek some information from the local police before you set out, you'll find them very helpful.
It's also a good idea to tell the police where you're going, if you're going off the "beaten track", and about what time you expect to arrive, every year visiting tourists go missing, some never to be seen again.
Whatever you're looking for, as a holiday traveller you're sure to find it in Australia.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
stralia (although those who live in Melbourne would probably dispute that).
The weather here is generally a little milder than in Queensland, but they do have their days...
Western Australia is a vast open space.
Perth, the capital, is a great little city, the beaches are white, the outback is never ending and the people are laid back and relaxed.
The climate? Can be very hot in summer and can also be quite cool in winter.
The major Aussie roads are generally of a very good standard, probably comparable to anywhere in the world however there are still a lot of dirt roads.
Do come, you'll love it.
