Australia is at the top of many traveler’s bucket lists and for good reason. Far flung way out in the Southern Hemisphere, it offers an adventure into lands drastically different from home. Famous for amazing animals, stunning scenery, insane insects, and a laid back lifestyle, it’s full of fun and excitement.
Another reason that it’s so popular among travelers is that it’s relatively easy to spend a year or two working and traveling throughout the country. This is exactly what we did during our epic Australian adventure. We spent almost 2 years living out of our trusty campervan, traveling and working across the country.
With such a massive adventure ahead of you, it can be difficult to know where to start. Fortunately, this travel guide to Australia will address all your questions and more! We’ll give you the tools to discover the country in the way that suits you, as well as explore things to do, set a realistic budget, and much more.
So, grab a cold one, stick another shrimp on the barbie, and let’s head to a land down under!
