Planning a Visit to Australia
As a general rule visit southern Australia in summer and northern
Australia in winter. If you have 2 or 4 months available this is enough time to travel
half of Australia either the Eastern half or Western half, but is more suited to three to
four months. The extra month allows more time for sightseeing.
When travelling around or part of Australia your main costs are fuel,
accommodation, food and activities. The distances and the time required travelling
Australia can vary because of a lot of factors like what vehicle used, are you towing an
RV or trailer, type of roads or terrain, and how long you stay at each destination.
