Why is Australia the best country for vacation

Emily Wilson ·
This continent-size country, sitting at the edge of the world, is a perfect place for your next vacation. Why? In addition to having unique flora and fauna, it still has all the advantages of a highly - developed western country. And that is one of the best things about Oceania - it is a mix of urban cities and unspoiled nature . But as the country has a lot to offer, it is best to plan ahead, thus making the trip more memorable and less stressful. Travel and accommodation can be...

Re: Best of Australia: Outdoor Activities to Do in Australian Summer

GarryRF ·
I've done most of those activities in the Oz winter. The winter time is a much cooler version of summer with temperatures below the 100f + that they get at Xmas - nearer 60/70f and just as sunny. Much more pleasant for a traveller from the frozen north. The Bridge Climb was a hoot - laughing all the way. But climbing trees is an invasion of Spider Territory. But at least the tree snakes eat 'em. Not for me.

Re: Active Leisure: Walking Tours around Australia

DrFumblefinger ·
These are some fascinating places to visit, Victoria -- thanks for sharing them. If I had a new set of knees I might even tackle the Overland Trek. Australia has some of the most beautiful landscapes and such a unique flora and fauna. But as I recall it also has the highest percentage of venomous things anywhere in the world -- spiders, snakes, lizards and such. Any suggestions for safety among those of us whose only usual danger might be a rare encounter with a bear or cougar?

Barry Barford ·
Australian national airline Qantas has pushed back its planned resumption of international flights from July to October 2021. This means that Australia will remain off limits to international tourists for a little longer and its citizens still not permitted to travel overseas for non-essential purposes. However, a one-way travel bubble is in place with New Zealand which allows citizens of that country to enter Australia without having to undergo a period of quarantine. A reciprocal...
