Looking for advice on ... My 6-week trip to Australia from April 15th to May 25th, 2018
Hi there ! ...
I’m a 52-year-old Frenchman traveling to AUSTRALIA on a six weeks trip from April 15th to May 25th, 2018.
I’ll be traveling on my own ... without any car (I can’t drive). It’s my first visit to Australia, and would need some advice ...
I haven’t decided on any itinerary yet. The country is huge ... but I understand that I could use Greyhound, Premier or the train to move around a bit. I could also buy 1 or 2 flights there as well so as to make the most of these six weeks.
It would have been nice to rent a campervan but as I’m traveling on my own so... I’ll be there as a backpacker ... traveling on a budget.
I’d like to take advice from other travelers and people who know Australia to help me make up my itinerary.
- I’m opened to different options ... Why not discover a few nice cities BUT what I’d enjoy most would be the landscapes, nature, the animals... exploring ... taking pictures.
- WHAT COULD I REASONABLY DO ON A 6-WEEK TRIP ? Could I explore a bit both the Outback and the coast (without a car) ? I’d like to ...
- Could you give me some tips and advice on possible itineraries for me ?
I’ve seen that I could stay in YHA hostels from 30 or 35 Australian dollars ... It’s fine to me. I could also explore Airbnb !? ... Have you got better ideas to get accommodation on a budget ?
Thanks to everyone for your point of view,
