Solo Travel in Australia

Reasons for Solo Travel in Australia

Among the countries I have been to, Australia in my opinion the most friendly country for women who want to travel alone. This is the reason why I love Australia and I've been spending a long time there. It's a country that makes me feel good and I truly cannot get enough of it.

Land down under is an amazing destination for those who love to travel at a slow pace, backpacking and hiking. Especially for women who are willing to start travelling on their own and are looking for an easy and safe destination. Look no further than Australia is the country to go!

Solo Travel in Australia - How to travel alone in Australia

My first solo trip was in 2004, while I was on a gap-year. Since than I have been travelling around Australia on my own for over 13 years. On this blog you will find hundreds of blog posts about my solo travel adventures and hope that will inspire you to do the same.

That's why I have created Rocky Travel, a comprehensive guide about Solo Travel in Australia and Budget Travel Tips. The guide has a focus on Australia and Europe as solo travel destinations.

If you are planning your Australia Trip soon and are unsure how-to do it and where-to-go my eBook Your Australia Itinerary  will be no. 1 travel resource to get started.

On this blog post I explain the basics for the solo traveller in Australia.

Why travelling solo in Australia – Benefits of travelling alone

There are always friends and people who ask me why I travel alone.

I warn you: if you start travelling around Australia by yourself, you may become addicted!

The untouched natural environment is one of the top attractions for the curious solo traveller. At the same time you have the opportunity to get to know the locals, their traditions, their culture, their lifestyle and make new friends. The more you travel solo the more people you get to know. It's much easier to meet people when you travel alone than in a group or with family or friends. This is one of the reasons why I travel alone.

How is it to travel alone in Australia

Some people may think it is boring and not gratifying. I can tell you that travelling alone is – at least for me – the best way to enrich your life. You get to know other people and places in a very direct way. It's a way to break barriers. You can relate to other solo travellers from all over the world and learn from their experience and their advice too. It's the best way to learn and grow for free. In fact you don't have to pay for self-growth counselling and courses.

I can highly encourage any woman who wants to travel solo in Australia not to think too much about it: just do it. Although it may sound daunting at the beginning, you will see how easy it actually is. If you decide to get started with an easy solo adventure, then Australia is truly a top safe country for women travelling alone.

How to travel alone for the first time

It's quite normal to feel anxious. We all do before a trip. But if you venture on your frist solo trip, it's natural to feel afraid. Australia is a country that will immediately relax you. People are very welcoming and like solo travellers. There will be plenty of people everywhere who spontaneously approach you and you will see how easy it is to strike up a conversation. Moreover since Australia is an easy country to get around, there are many travellers going solo. So don't be afraid if you travel alone in Australia, you will bump into many women who do the same.

If you are on your first solo trip I would suggest staying in hostels as these are the best social aggregators when travelling by yourself. It will be easier to start with this type of accommodation. This is how I started too and found hostel stay really a great resource for socializing and getting to know other like-minded travellers.
