While for some travelling means going overseas to experience a different culture and terrain, for many it is the chance to explore home territory and really get the chance to learn about the place we call home. And where can be better than home sweet home for cutting those travelling teeth and getting a taste for adventure?
Australia possesses an abundance of natural beauty, from gleaming white beaches and the Great Barrier Reef to the well-known Outback and the Great Victoria Desert. Novice backpackers would do well to explore their homeland before heading overseas to find new adventures, but don’t assume that Australia is a training ground; it is immersed in weird and wonderful wildlife, opportunities to participate in extreme sports and a firm favourite among foreign backpackers who love the great outdoors and easy-going culture.
Preparation is half of the fun when it comes to travelling. It involves planning routes and places of interest, organising transport and figuring out where to sleep. It might be that you're just heading away with the family, or you are heading out on an adventure of your own. Backpackers need to organise packs, clothing, and travel funds while those hoping for a less nomadic lifestyle will be sorting out suitcases, swimwear, or activity gear. Perhaps a campervan trip is in order, or hiring a car and taking essential equipment. Whichever way you plan to travel, make sure that you have domestic travel insurance, which is a sensible way to cover issues as well as saving cash in the long run.
