Usually, there are many pieces of advice regarding how to spend your weekend in the Land Down Under and what are must haves to see if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands. But, if you’re lucky enough to be able to spend two weeks or more in this wonderful country, there are many things to think about and take care of so that you can make the most of your stay.
Visit galleries and museums
Thanks to so many different cultures that make the country of Australia, there are countless museums and galleries to visit and enjoy. Also, most of the entrance fees for these places are free. In that respect, wherever you may find yourself, make sure to check out these cultural attractions and get your own share of the rich traditions and history behind the country’s struggle for national identity. Whatever topic you may be interested in, there definitely exists a place that would satisfy your thirst for knowledge and provide a valuable insight.
Plan your travels
It’s important to stress how essential it is to plan your itinerary beforehand when it comes to some of the bigger attractions known to this country. While most people enjoy exploring Australia by going on a road trip, it is fairly impossible to visit all the places you want that way. Therefore, check out some of the country’s airlines that offer affordable ticket prices if you need to travel long distances, from one part of Australia to another. Of course, once you find yourself in a certain area, you can still get the experience of a road trip by renting a car and visiting nearby places in that manner.
Use the technology
Thanks to all the technological advances we have today, there are many apps that can help you get the most out of your visit. Just by checking your phone, you can get information on the most interesting events happening in your vicinity that you could otherwise overlook, as well as much necessary info when it comes to the best places to wine and dine. On the other hand, if your arrangements involve cooking for yourself, there are also apps that tell you the best prices and deals in the nearby supermarkets. Not to mention that an app explaining your whereabouts, metro and bus lines and fastest routes is a must. Even if you don’t want to install any apps, keep your phone or tablet charged because every piece of information that you can find useful is available online.
Affordable and comfy accommodation
While checking in at a hotel is fine for someone on a short visit, those who plan to stay for a longer time would benefit the most from family pensions and private accommodation. These places are generally more budget-friendly but they still offer all the comfort that you’d need when travelling. “I have to pay my rent” in this case is not something that would cause a lot of trouble or worrying. Quite the contrary, paying the rent when abroad instead of hotel expenses will only make you feel more welcome and a part of the country’s busy life.
Meet new friends
When spending a long vacation in Australia, there’s no reason to keep to yourself. Go out, talk to people and make new friends! If you deepen your acquaintance with locals, you’ll have a lot more fun than spending your days on your own, and the chances are that they’ll show you some places that not many tourists know about. Most importantly, this might prove to be an opportunity to make friends for life.
Don’t waste a moment of time when you get the chance to spend a longer vacation in Australia. It’s easy to get too settled in at your accommodation facility when you know that you have days and weeks to explore, but you’d be doing the same thing you can do at home, and that’s not at all something you want on your vacation. Get a move on and make every moment count!
