Australia Travel Insurance

 

Introduction

 
In the 18th and 19th Centuries, Brits would have been quaking in their boots at the thought of travelling to Australia, but modern day Oz has advanced way beyond its prison colony past. The country/continent is now one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the world, attracting backpackers and senior travellers alike to marvel at the metropolitan cities, harsh outback and the glorious Great Barrier Reef.

Key Contact Details and Important Information

 

 

TOP TIP

 

Don’t forget to register with Medicare as soon as you can once you arrive in Oz, the process is free and you can register up to 10 days after you arrive. There are hundreds of Medicare Offices all over Australia, and registering will ensure you receive discounted or free public health care and medications. The system works very similarly to the EHIC in Europe, so you just have to produce your Medicare Card when seeking treatment.

 

Best Time to Visit

 

Australia’s seasons are reversed to ours, so their summer falls between December and March, making it the perfect winter sun destination. During the summer months Australia really comes alive, with events and festivals taking place around the country, however the year round mild weather means that there is no ‘bad’ time to visit Oz.

 

What to See and Do

 

With so much to see and do in Australia it will be difficult to fit everything into one trip, however there are four things every traveller should see and do;

  • Visit the Sydney Opera House – an iconic part of the Sydney scene, everyone should admire the architecture and then head inside to watch a show.
  • Dive the Great Barrier Reef – yes you will probably need to take some dive lessons, but it will be well worth it to see the world’s largest living thing, and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
  • Travel into the Outback – to gaze upon the famous Uluru or Ayer’s Rock, which was considered sacred by Australia’s Aboriginal ancestors.

 

What to Eat and Drink

 

Local beers are a must try, and the brave will also try some vegemite on toast.
