BE PREPARED – ALWAYS!
It is always advisable to go prepared before you leave for your trip. Here are a few must-haves:
SKIP FLIGHTS FOR GREYHOUND OR OZ EXPERIENCE
The Bus transportation services in Australia are a boon for those travelling by themselves. In Oz Experience or Greyhound bus, you choose a route and purchase a bus pass before you go. 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.
NIGHTS IN HOSTELS
Now that you have got a feel of travelling in Australia, you will come across many like yourself who will have stories to share. Get a bed in hostel and you will get to meet many backpackers like yourself. Share stories and experiences over a couple of beers and make travel buddies! Some of the well known hostels in Australia are Surfside Bondi Beach, Cool Bananas Town, Base Magnetic Island, Holiday Village Byron, etc.
If you are looking for travel buddies, you should check out websites like Gumtree and Rideshare or check the notice boards in hostels. You will come across messages from travelers on those boards regarding trips, guides, rent vehicles, etc.
For a quick tour around the country, you can book some tour groups. From tenting under the star-lit sky to driving along the beaches up to cooking meals together, you will find tour-mates to share these experiences with. These tours are a cheap and easy way to go around Uluru and Kings Canyon or a tour to Kangaroo Island.
