If you’re unsure about booking a trip to Australia as you don’t know whether or not it is the place for you, then you have come to the right place. With beautiful scenery and so many awesome things to see and do, Australia is one of the most incredible places to visit.
Whether you’re planning a short trip, or to stay a little longer, you need to be sure it is definitely the place for you before you book. With that in mind, here are 5 reasons why you should visit Australia.
Before you embark on any type travel, you need to pack, which is sometimes daunting. Deciding what to pack can leave you with a headache, and you ask yourself "which essential items do I need", and "what should I not pack?"
We have been travelling full time in Asia for over two years, and have perfected the ultimate packing list. Whilst we may not have perfected how to travel light, we certainly know which items we cannot do without.
We have been using this essential international travel packing list for many years, and it’s worked for us so far!
We have stayed in All Inclusive resorts, been on luxury tours, gone camping and now we are backpacking, plus we have stayed in every type of B&B and hotel in between. In other words, we know what we are talking about. Regardless of your age, how you are travelling and where you are going, we know the essential items to pack for worldwide travel.
We cover everyday essentials such as toiletries and electronics, how to travel plastic free, which medication you should take, anti-theft protection, plus even what bag to take.
This is Feet Do Travel’s ultimate packing list; all tried and tested! What we carry and why.
Extreme weather conditions can happen anywhere in the world at any time, but would you know how to survive a natural disaster?
It’s devastating for residents living within a country, but as travellers, any one of us could be visiting somewhere when a natural disaster occurs.
When we were in the Lombok earthquake on 5 August, we had no idea what to do, we just tried to think rationally and survival mode kicked in. When a tsunami warning was in place, for this we knew what to do – get to high ground.
This post isn’t intended to scare, but to educate us all on what to do when faced with circumstances we are unfamiliar with. I haven’t endured all the situations within this post, if I had, I’m unsure if I would be the luckiest person still alive, or the unluckiest to have been in these disasters in the first place! So I spoke with my travel blogger friends to create this post.
I hope we are all able to learn how to survive a natural disaster.
If you are a lover of nature, there is nothing better than being in the great outdoors, especially when you are on holiday. Nothing beats exploring and experiencing the wonders of the world, and seeing wildlife in their natural habitat with your own two eyes is far more rewarding than watching it on a screen.
This article can’t even begin to cover all of the amazing options you have to choose from, so make sure you research thoroughly before you plan your trip away.
There are many different types of holiday you can book, but if you are unsure where to start, let us share with you three holidays for wildlife lovers.
Visitors to New South Wales, Australia head for Sydney and its iconic structures, but there is so much more to this south eastern Australian state.
Whether you enjoy kicking back whilst basking your eyes in some nature, appreciating cultural pieces of art, or simply immersing yourself in the salty air of beautiful beaches, sometimes all you need is a sweet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Despite Sydney being a hotspot for many travellers visiting New South Wales, a few hours south from the busy CBD lies the South Coast area offering a wide range of attractions. From tranquil beaches just minutes’ walk from national parks, to premium vineyards serving Australia’s best heritage cheeses.
Feet Do Travel share our guide to 10 awesome things to do in the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
Attending a festival should be part of everyone’s annual celebration. Why? Because they are just so much fun!
There are many different festivals held around the world throughout the year to suit every taste. Traditionally, festivals are a special day or period for a religious event or anniversary. They can also be an organised event such as a music festival, food festival, film festival or even a beer festival. Some are large involving thousands of people, others are small local gatherings.
People travel the globe to attend these elaborate events, and often make it the sole purpose for their trip. We have!
There are many festivals on my bucket list which I have yet to attend, so to help me compile this epic list of festivals around the world, I asked some awesome travel bloggers.
What a magnificent, diverse and eclectic list this is!
Sydney, often mistaken for the capital of Australia, is a fantastic place to visit with kids. The bustling city has plenty to do for adults and kids of all ages, and it's super easy to find something more laid back to do too. Whether it's your first time in the city or you're making a returning visit, you should always be able to discover something new. Keeping the kids entertained in a city usually isn't too difficult, but Sydney makes it even easier. Anyone visiting Australia from elsewhere or residents who have decided to come and see Sydney can have a great time with little effort.
Before you head overseas, ensure you are getting the best exchange rates to make your money go further whilst you travel. If you are visiting from the UK for example, check the GBP to AUD conversion rates online prior to arriving in Australia.
If you ever find yourself in Tasmania, the southern state of Australia, you have to visit Cradle Mountain. It’s ancient rainforest and beautiful nature all around will leave you speechless.
Cradle Mountain is located in the North-West part of Tasmania, in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. The world famous walking tour leading up to Cradle Mountain is known as the Overland Track, and is one of the most popular choices for hikers. It’s the prettiest and most visited national park in Tasmania.
The Cradle Mountain Summit hiking track is definitely not for inexperienced hikers and requires you to have quite a high fitness level. It is graded as 5/5 for difficulty, but if you do achieve it, the breathtaking scenery is absolutely worth every step.
If you decide to explore Cradle Mountain, Feet Do Travel share useful tips that will help you survive.
