Planning Your Australian Itinerary

If you are looking to travel to Australia for 10 days to 2 weeks, then you might want to plan an East Coast itinerary. The east coast itinerary features a significant part of the picturesque scenes that Australia offers.

  • You can start with your adventure in Sydney. An ideal tourist spot, it offers iconic global landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera house, Bondi Beach, etc. If you are willing to spend some time near the shore, you can also visit the rocks.
  • Following a visit to the most iconic attractions of Sydney, you can also spend a day taking day trips within Sydney. These include a ferry around the coastline – a fantastic 3-hour ferry that is a feast for the eyes, a trip to the Blue Mountains national park and many more.
  • From Sydney, you can either go to the Daintree rainforest to spend some time within the wilderness and witness a range of sparse species. 
  • Alternatively, you can also fly to Cairns to view another set of global attractions: including the world heritage site the great barrier reef.
  • Step 1: Plan Your Australia Journey: How to Reach Australia?

    The best and quickest way to reach Australia is by flight. However, there are very few direct flights to Australia and the shortest one is around 12 hours and 30 minutes. Other flights with layovers will be longer but perfect for those on a budget.

    There are no direct cruises to Australia from India, however, if you’re going to New Zealand or other Pacific nations then you can find a cruise for Australia.

  • Step 2: Buy Australia Travel Insurance

    As soon as your Australian itinerary, flight tickets and hotel bookings are done, buy travel insurance for Australia at the earliest. The earlier you buy it, the better. It will cover for many things like trip cancellation, flight delays and any other emergencies that you may face throughout this trip. 

  • Step 3: Pack for Australia: Travel Trips

    A robust and meticulous itinerary may be the key to an adventurous trip, however, you must be ready for many things while visiting Australia: 

    • One of the biggest difficulties for most tourists looking to travel to Australia is to understand Australian seasons. The North, for example, usually follows dry and wet tropical seasons. Australia's seasons are usually the opposite of what is found in the northern hemisphere.
    • Unfortunately, Australia is prone to numerous natural anomalies like bushfires, dust storms and flash floods. It’s crucial to plan ahead for your safety and security and always keep an eye on the local news in your area.
    • Keep in mind the best time to visit Australia. It’s an excellent place to visit all year round. However, there are some places that might be slightly more favourable based on the season. 
    • Northern Australia or the Darwin area becomes extremely moist and damp in the scorching Australian summer. Therefore, tourists usually prefer to visit these areas between May and October.
    • If you are looking to go to Perth and visit the South-West part of Australia, then you might reconsider the blazing summer winds or the extremely damp winter conditions. Such areas usually provide a wonderful experience amidst the Autumn and Spring seasons.

So, if you are an avid historian or an adventure-seeking jock, Australia is the right place for you. With the right itinerary and appropriate Australia Visa and travel insurance in Australia, don’t miss out on this opportunity and go and pay a visit to the land down under!
