Whether you live in the Netherlands, Belgium or Spain, a long journey requires good preparation. Totally a trip to Australia. In this article we give you tips on how to prepare well for your trip through Australia.
Regions and the best time to travel
Spain is a big country, but nothing compared to Australia in size, which is the sixth largest in the world. Spain is at number 52. What is similar between the two countries is that they both enjoy diverse climates and landscapes.
We are happy to tell you the best time to travel to Australia. Brisbane, the capital of Queensland with temperatures between 20 and 35 degrees, can be visited all year round. All the distances between the sights are within easy walking distance.
The Red Center, in central Australia, is best visited between May and September. The days are less hot, and you can take the time to discover the landscape.
The Northern Territory is the rugged landscape of the North with flora and fauna unique to the national parks. The best time to travel is between May and September, which is the dry season.
Finally, the Great Ocean Trail, this popular coastal road between Melbourne and Adelaide, takes you through pristine Australia. Enjoy great sea views, take long walks through rainforests and drive through vineyards to sample local wines. The best time to drive this route is between October and April.
The right flight for your trip
Australia is literally on the other side of the world, so it’s a little different from a 2-3 hour flight from Holland/Belgium to Spain. The flight to Australia from Europe takes from 20 to 22 hours.
If your destination is on the East Coast, such as Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, you will be on the road for at least 24 hours. The trip usually consists of two trips with stops. It is therefore advisable to book a stop for a few days, so that you can get used to the time difference and also have a chance to explore another country. For example, stop in Dubai, Singapore or the Cook Islands, where you can enjoy the beach.
The best travel period is between April and October
In short, a tour of Australia can be done all year round, but the best travel period is between April and October. Want to get out of your comfort zone and take a long trip instead of the familiar Spain? Then think carefully when planning your dream trip down the road!
