Australia is one of the world’s ‘must-see’ destinations and a huge country. Getting between the cities requires internal flights but you can pre-book hire cars for collection at each of the airports when you arrive.

Australia Mini Guide

How do I get to Australia?
With flights only from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport, options are limited but you can fly to Perth or Sydney direct from there. Both Australian airports have good connections meaning that you’ll find it easy to get around the country.

Travelling Around Australia
A combination of internal flights and hire car is the best way to see the country and with roads being in excellent condition in most areas, particularly around the coast, driving is a pleasure. It’s only in the interior where the roads become dirt tracks. Car hire is available in all the cities and at most airports.

Eating out in Australia
Food is inexpensive and delicious with high quality produce sourced locally. In the north, there is a tendency towards Asian food with the proximity to the continent and the number of Asian immigrants influencing the cuisine.

Staying in Australia
Hotels are generally reasonably priced but the best value comes from the serviced apartments which are comfortably furnished and modern. Expect to pay between R900 and R2500 for a room for two for a night.

What Shouldn’t I Miss in Australia?
  • Uluru. Previously known as Ayer’s Rock, it’s a holy site for the Aborigine people and one of the world’s most recognisable geographic features.
  • The Great Barrier Reef. Another of nature’s marvels, this is the world’s biggest coral reef and one of the best diving locations in the world.
  • Sydney. Containing some of Australia’s most iconic sights, the city is a hedonist’s delight with always something happening to suit all tastes.
  • The Outback. Only for the brave or well prepared, the Outback is the wild and deserted centre of the country. Take a 4x4 excursion there to see some of the world’s weirdest creatures and plants.
  • Canberra. A much maligned capital city, Canberra has a lot to offer the open minded. It is a planned city which now holds many of the country’s important monuments, museums and galleries.
