Travelling King - Finance Planner turning holiday dreams into a reality!

Australia

This island nation somehow manages to live up to its infamous reputation. Most travelers underestimate the size of Australia, as it’s over 4,300 kilometers across. From iconic sights like Bondi Beach, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Sydney Opera House to the Australian Outback and cultural sites like Uluru, you simply can’t “do” Australia in one or two weeks. It takes multiple trips to appreciate the enormity and diversity of the Land Down Under.

QUICK AUSTRALIAN FACTS

Currency: Australia Dollars can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Australia, however keep in mind that smaller country towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you. Generally most companies access credit and debit cards. 

Power Points: Most power points are 2 diagonal prongs. Obviously I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Australians.

Official Language: The official language of the Australia is Australian… Kidding! Australians speak English.

Health: There are no major health concerns in Australia for travellers however I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is perfectly safe to drink unless otherwise signed.
