How To Travel: Australia (East Coast)

CookingCompanionsTravel

Australia is huge. Even if we spent the rest of our life on an endless road trip around the country, there still will be new things to discover. It`s size gives Autralia a wide variety of landscapes: From tropical rainforests in the north-east to mountain ranges in the south-east, south-west and east and a dry desert in the centre. Most Australians live along the coast – so this is where you not only find stunning beaches and good waves to surf, here you can also discover a lot of fun cities. All of them with their very own characteristics and style.

How to get there by plane?

To explore Australia’s east coast you could best fly to Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney. You could also choose to fly to Cairns or any other smaller airport along the coast.

How to get there by land?

Australia is huge. So once you are there, you can drive, drive, and drive even more. But you probably will not be able to reach the continent by car itself. Although there might be options to ship your car over with a ship.

Visa

There are different via options to choose one. A very popular one (at least for Germans) is the working holiday visa. You have to apply for it online. If you want to visit the country as a tourist, you can apply online for the a visitor visa if you are outside Australia and you hold a passport from an eligible country.

Cuisine

When it comes to food, Australia plates up a multicultural fusion of European techniques and fresh Pacific-rim ingredients. Besides seafood, meat also plays a significant role in the Australian cuisine. So join us in grabbing a good glass of Australian wine or beer and follow us during our Australian adventure.

Traveling is about the journey – not about the destination. A journey along the Great Ocean Road is the best proof – it is more than a coastal road. It is a collection of experiences, which enable you to create your own story, chase your free spirit, feed your wanderlust and explore.
