Vacation Australia

Updated on October 18, 2010

Vacation Australia

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.

If there is something about Australia that we have not covered , please leave a comment in the box below and we will cover it in a Hub.

While you are visiting here drop back any time to VacationAustralia and keep us updated.

      @reviewadon thanks for the information. Yes it is a very convenient practice but they are a lot more interesting animal than just that. They are actually known as a "monotreme" which makes them a very unique animal!
