Activities and excursions in Australia

 

Activities and excursions

Australia is almost 200 times as big as the Netherlands, the distances are huge everywhere. When people choose for a 4-week trip through Australia, a possibility could be to travel through a small area. Another possibility is of course traveling through a bigger area which means you have to move faster from place to place which doesn’t really leave any room for a relaxed journey. However, a 4-week trip is actually doable when you choose to travel on the east coast because the distances from one place to another are a lot shorter. Keep in mind that there are lots of fun activities to do in all these different places, but, of course, this costs time. If you want to do this, I’d recommend a (tight) schedule.

 

If you decide that during your trip you want to drive around yourself (rent transportation), then it’s a good idea to count the kilometers you’d have to drive every day to get to your destinations. When doing that, take into consideration how long your activities will take. You could even, just to be sure, plan some ‘extra time’ for surprising events (for example: you want to stay somewhere a little longer, you’re having car troubles or you have some other business to take care of). If you factor all these things in, then you can be sure your planning is realistic.

 

Because Australia is so large, it offers lots of activities. It’s a country with lots of different landscapes and has slightly different climates (northern and southern Australia) which results in a great variety of activities in the different areas. If you have a small budget, you could choose to do free activities such as walks through the national parks, snorkeling at the coast or a day at the beach. In almost every village in Australia, you can find a free (gas) BBQ. So when you choose for a beautiful walk (on the beach), a picknick in the park and a BBQ at the end, you got yourself a fun activity that doesn’t cost much at all.

 

Because of the great variety of activities and excursions, it’s hard to say what the costs would exactly be. Small (group)activities (1 day) could cost between 50-100 euros, but if you choose for activities that take a couple days this could easily go up to hundreds of euros. Think of stuff like a diving-course, a course to become a cowboy or ‘surviving’ in the jungle of outback to discover the ‘real Australia’. These activities can easily cost between 100-500 euros!
