We all look at Australia as an exotic distant place on its own. But, what makes it such an interesting destination and why people travel there? Well, here are 5 reasons why Australia should be on top of your destination list.
The exchange advantage with the £ € $ – Even though the € and £ have slipped during recent weeks, the exchange is still advantageous for us to visit the Down Under. Although Australia is not considered to be cheap, the current exchange still can help make your trip less expensive.
The GREAT weather – Australia has golden-sunshine weather pretty much year round. Even though the south can get chilly during winter (May-June), the north part stays with summer-like weather 365 days a year. During this time of the year, you will see tourists and locals migrating from south to north. There you can enjoy activities like camping, hiking, surfing, and sunbathing at the beach any day of the year.
Nature and Wildlife – Most of Australia is still untouched and in its natural state. Australia is the perfect place to sunbathe at stunning beaches, dive at the Great Barrier Reef, bathe under a tropical waterfall, bask in wide open spaces, and camp surrounded by wildlife. Australia’s iconic wildlife is definitely unique and mind-blowing. Kangaroos, Koalas, wombats, cockatoos, and kookaburras are some of the creatures you will see wandering around in their natural habitats.
G’Day Mate, ‘ow yer goin? – Even though Australia is an English-speaking country, you will find that the Australian version of English is somewhat exotic. Their language is considered as a small tourist attraction to foreigners since it is composed of so many Aussie slangs. Having said that, you should be prepared to ask for clear repeats since their pronunciation is not always easy to understand.
Culture and Festivals – Aussies are said to have a really laid-back culture. Everyone calls each other mate and they never miss a holiday. Aussies have a festival for everything, whether its food, art, film, music or anything. Many of their big festivals attract a worldwide attention due to their splendor, eccentric vibes, and over the top style.
As you can see, Australia’s bests are concentrated on its nature and culture. These are definitely not to be missed.
