I just got done reading a travelogue about someone’s wild adventures in the Australian outback, and I’m hooked! I can’t get the images of vast, open expanses and exotic animals out of my mind.
I think it would be amazing to go on a similar trip myself, so I’m now saving up my money and checking into different Australia vacation packages. I simply must visit the land down under as soon as possible!
The most salient point I took away from the book I recently finished is that Australian travel presents some significant challenges. First of all, only a small percentage of the country is actually inhabited, which means there can be massive distances between big cities.
In other words, if I want to see more than just one place, I’ll have to concentrate on Australia vacation packages that include domestic flights to and from popular destinations. Buses and trains simply won’t cut it because I’ll end up wasting far too much time on the road. As long as I can fly from place to place, I should be OK.
Aside from concerns about in-country travel, I want to look at Australia vacation packages that pack as much sightseeing and other activities into the itinerary as possible. I do not intend to fly several thousand miles to the other side of the globe just to sit on the beach and soak up some sun.
I’ve taken plenty of vacations like that already, and can get the same effect by going to Florida, California, or Hawaii. I will only consider Australia vacation packages that include a journey out to the Great Barrier Reef (with time for snorkeling and scuba diving, of course), as well as a couple days in Sydney, a hiking tour of a small portion of the outback, a visit to Uluru, and perhaps a trip to Melbourne or the Gold Coast.
In addition to having a full, exciting itinerary, I am only interested in cheap Australia vacation packages. I know traveling down under is pretty pricey to begin with, but I do want to save on things like hotels and meals while in the country.
I don’t need any 5-star accommodations or $100 steak dinners; I’ll be fine with a clean, comfortable place to sleep every night and some sandwiches, burgers, or grilled chicken during the day. I’m not picky in that respect, and would rather save a few bucks than pamper myself.
At any rate, I’ll be keeping an eye out for affordable Australia vacation packages that meet my criteria. Once I find something that sounds good, I’m going to jump on it and start packing my bags. I have no doubt that this will end up being the trip of a lifetime!
