Planning an Australian vacation? Very wise choice, Australian vacations are ideal if you really want to slow down! Come see the wonder down under through local eyes first!
Apart from tight airport security since 9/11 the country is generally easy going, easy to travel in and very friendly.
Australia is run on the Westminster system and is a Democracy. Hire cars, buses, taxis, trains and buses are available in and around major cities, and the highway system is mostly modern.
With extended freeways and toll roads as well as alternative routes to avoid them, road travel is a viable alternative if you want to see more than you would see as an airborne tourist.
We have even made up a guide to help you decide the best places to visit. Its called, strangely enough : Australian Vacation Guide
But just before you go to the guide, have a look at these pictures of what you might expect to see on your travels.
