Travel tips for Australia

All the travel tips for backpackers, low budget travellers, families and more!

Australian National parks

Australia has many National Parks and every National Park also offers many opportunities for new adventures. See the (save) tips below.

 

Camping

Australia has many National Parks. Here you can (in many cases) (wild) camp for free or for very little amount of money. Wild camping is often free or a small fee is an obligation. This is called an honesty system, which involves that you should donate money to a designated mailbox.

 

Crocodiles

National parks offer sometimes lovely swimming locations. You can slide off of rocks (natural slides) or you can swim underneath waterfalls. However here remains a problem. Especially in the states: Queensland and Northern Territory . Over here you might find crocodiles. In most cases there is also a "No swimming" or "beware of crocodiles" sign. Unfortunately, it is still quite common that tourists like to take these signs at home as a souvenir. This can result in some places without a warning sign. SO: This does not mean that you can safely swim over here!!

A tip is that you talk to the locals (nearby) or people who live/work in the park. The Australian government is often screening all of these rivers and lakes. Especially just after the rainy season, the rivers and lakes are connected with the sea. This allows (saltwater) crocodiles (unintentionally)to swim into the sweet waters. Please always note that crocodiles can be anywhere!

 

There are also two types of crocodiles in Australia: saltwater and freshwater. The saltwater crocodiles are the big, the ones you mostly see on TV. These are dangerous and often very large. The freshwater crocodiles, however, are less dangerous, often narrow and much smaller. They are more afraid of you because you are (often) bigger than they are. But watch out as usual. Do not take any risks!

 

(Camp) Fire

In many Australian National Parks are fire places in the appropriate places free to use. Please have only fires in here, because if you do not, you can blow fire on a dry grass field with serious consequences!

Campfires are free to make and so it also provides an opportunity to get your food to heat up. This is an easy way to save on the expensive gas bottles! So make an fire in the appropriate places and save money!

If it is not possible to make campfires, this is explicitly stated in the Australian National parks (at the places themselves).

 

Food

Do not leave food (and junk) swinging on the places where you've been (camping, enjoy walking, etc). Because animals eat your junk / food which is not good for them. Moreover, the wild animals and their behaviour so uncontrollable. If you like these cute animals to feed, they might see you as danger and react toward you because you are in their territory. It is also true that when you feed the wild animals they might dependent on this way of gathering food. When they become dependent on getting food for a while, then they can die and become endangered species.
