If you are travelling for more than 3 months, you can apply for Working Holiday Visa where you can travel and do casual jobs simultaneously.

  • Tickets and Passports – Once you have your Visas and insurance in place get your tickets and passports in place. For cheaper airline deals, it is best if you book your tickets a couple of months before your d-day.

 

  • First Aid/Medical Kit – Now that you have made up your mind that you will be travelling solo, you are on your own. So it’s better to carry basic medical kit along with medicines that you think you might not find easily in the places you plan to visit. Also, if you suffer from any kind of allergies, do keep your anti-allergy tablets handy.

 

  • Travel Journal – A Travel Journal is going to be your best friend on your trip to Australia. You will definitely want to write down all those marvelous experiences that will cross your path.

It is more like a hop-on and hop-off trip. Be a fast-traveler or a slow one, you are bound to bump into people you have met before. It is extremely flexible and safe way to travel around Australia, especially when you are low on your budget.
