Traveling in Australia


Enough about working, let’s talk about travelling around this incredible country. The best thing about Australia’s high wages is it means more money to experience more things, in more places!

From surf to desert to city, Australia really does have it all and the list of travelling opportunities is well and truly endless.  Australia’s golden trail for travelers is the East Coast. The traditional East Coast route is the 2500km of road stretching from Melbourne to Cairns.

There are thousands of backpackers and students on their own journey but on a similar path, getting the experiences they want to. This journey includes all of those places you’ve heard of such as:

  • Sydney
  • Byron Bay
  • Surfers Paradise
  • Brisbane
  • Noosa
  • Fraser Island
  • Whitsundays
  • Magnetic Island
  • Cairns

On this route you can experience incredible things such as:

  • Surf world class surf beaches
  • Visit 1 of 2 Everglades National Parks
  • Watch sunset in Australia’s most easterly point
  • Drive a 4WD around the world’s biggest sand island
  • Spend 2 days/2 nights on the Whitsunday Islands, visiting the World’s Best Beach
  • Snorkel or Scuba Dive The Great Barrier Reef
  • Visit the World’s Oldest Rainforest

With so many travelers in Australia, there are plenty of great options for travelling around. You can choose to travel the East Coast in a car or campervan rental with friends, or by taking the bus. The bus is perfect for solo travelers as the ticket last for 3 months and lets you get off in one town, explore the place for a few days before getting back on the bus to the next town when you’d like to move on. This is called a Hop-On Hop Off bus pass and it’s extremely cost effective.

Once again, this throws up many questions and there are so many different things you can do. Welcome to Travel’s expertise really has no limits and they help with every single aspect of travelling Australia. You may want to book a 5 week East Coast trip, 1 day car hire in Brisbane, a 5 day Scuba Diving Trip on the Great Barrier Reef or a 3 month Campervan hire around the country, they can help with any of it.

This page is a great place to learn more about the East Coast, as well as get in touch for help on the adventure you’d like to take. Don’t worry if you’d like help travelling to somewhere other than the East Coast, they can do that too.
