Australia Travel Tips

Looking for places to visit in Australia? We share our tips on best things to do in Australia including travel costs, itinerary ideas, road trips and more.

We're from Australia and have travelled the country extensively for 3 years. We road tripped around Australia for 18 months in a caravan/ travel trailer with our two daughters Kalyra and Savannah.

You can hear more about that in this podcast episode.

We're from the Central Coast in NSW, and have also lived in Broome, WA, Mooolaba on the Sunshine Coast, QLD and Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

We've also taken many short trips to explore our beautiful country even further.

We have a huge amount of useful travel tips and destination highlights on Australia to help you plan your trip.

We've grouped them into the categories below so click to the one that suits you most. You'll find a complete list of all the posts below the categories so keep scrolling.

You'll find our best travel tips and general Australia content under the Best of Australia!

We hope you enjoy traveling either to, or around, Australia as much as we do. She truly is one of the most exotic and beautiful countries in the world.
