Australia. A country with a unique history of anywhere in the world, somewhere that tops the chart for places people want to visit during their lifetimes. It’s likely that you intend to go here yourself, or have expressed some form of desire to in the past, and this article will serve to help you make that final push.
However, it’s important to understand WHY a visit to Australia is worth it. Surely, there are many beautiful countries all over the world which deserve your time? If you’re living in a western culture, the plane tickets and travel time alone might put you off of visiting Australia shortly, and instead, might make you feel like putting it off until a year which never arrives. This would be tragic, because Australia deserves visits upon visits upon re-visits, and ignoring this simple fact can be silly as someone who enjoys traveling.
If you’re into traveling, you’re obviously someone who enjoys experiencing the new and stretching the borders of your understanding to acclimate to cultures which have much different customs to the ones you have been raised in. We’d argue that Australia can be the best way to do this as an early or intermediate traveler, because despite the most civilised nature of the society there, there are a plethora of important societal changes which can really stimulate the wanderlust and adventurer within you. Before long, you’ll be journeying the outback and heading on the most engaging sightseeing tour you can find.
The Seasons Are Shifted
Of course, everyone knows that the season are shifted compared to people living in the Northern Hemisphere. This might sound cute before you go, but experiencing it is another thing entirely. Experiencing the festive celebrations in the depth of summer is something only seen to be believed. Here is where all the best parties happen, and the celebratory moods of the events at this time only serve to make the experiences that little more special.
Wildlife Is Respected
If you’re hailing from the United Kingdom or from the United States/Canada, it’s likely you have an understanding of the wildlife which surrounds your area and what you should look for. For Canada, it could be Bears. For certain states of the US, it could be Elk or Coyotes. For Australia, it could be almost anything. For this reason, wildlife is respected, especially that found in the outback. An Australian wildlife experience is like nothing else found on Earth, and can grant you some of the most beautiful experiences possible. Australia has some excellent conservation efforts, and thanks to the size of the outback it remains mostly untouched by urban development. If you’re looking to get into nature (with wisdom, education and perhaps a guide to help you through,) there is arguably no better place in the world to do so.
Not only are people in Australia certainly some of the best and most fun loving people in the world, but the cultural identities are amazing to experience and love first hand. With a little tip in the right direction, Australia could become your new, adored home from home.
