    Awesome tips, Michela. I agree on not doing extra research. If possible, have everything planned and stick to it so you don’t need to waste some time doing research on where to dine, etc. I bet your book would be very helpful for those planning to travel around Australia.

    What a great article and tips for Visiting Australia. Extra research is always the best way to plan trips. I like to know everything about any country I visit including history. This is helpful especially if you are visiting a country with different culture, knowing the history can explain that culture, and avoid any cultural faux pas.

    Australia is a beautiful country (my home) and we love showing the new visitors what we have to offer. From amazing beaches, to the vast inland deserts. As the well know poem says “I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains”

    We love your blog and have included you in the Best Female Travel Bloggers which you can see at http://top10travel.online/best-solo-female-travel-blogs-2017/
