Best Time to Visit Australia

The best time to visit Australia is between March and April or from September to October. These months represent the shoulder season in Australia and offer reasonable weather and smaller crowds.

Modes of Transportation in Australia

The best way to see Australia is by flying between cities. Train services, long-distance buses, and highways connect the most popular destinations but also require hours upon hours to travel the long distances. With 545 miles between Sydney and Melbourne or the 1,500 miles between Sydney and Cairns, flying between cities is quick and efficient when visiting Australia.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Australia

When traveling through Australia, you must consider safety, ease of logistics, and accessibility. The following information offers our recommendations on what to consider.

Is Australia Safe for Travel?

Australia is very safe for travelers, and Australians are always eager to welcome new people to their unique and inviting environment. Many visitors to Australia fear the infamous wildlife, but the use of common sense will allow you to avoid any significant issues. The wildlife generally leaves people alone, especially when in cities. When traveling in the hands of a destination expert, you can count on your guides to ensure your safety and comfort.

Which airports should I be looking at?

The best airport to fly in and out of when visiting Australia is Sydney International Airport (SYD). Sydney is Australia’s largest airport and one of three airports that have direct flights from the United States. Other airports around the country also offer international and domestic flights, including Melbourne (MEL) and Brisbane (BNE).
