Finding the Best Transportation Methods to Get Across Australia

Thursday, 25 June 2020
It’s no secret that Australia is a massive country. While this place is large, though, the vast majority of it is covered with land that very little has been done with. You can travel for hundreds of miles without seeing another person, and most tourists choose to stick to the coast when they are in the land of Aus. Of course, though, you may not want to do this and will need to figure out the best transport methods to get yourself across the massive piece of land. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring the best forms of transport to use when you’re travelling across Australia.

For most people, cars will be the most obvious choice when they are looking to cross a country like this. Being able to drive will give you a lot of freedom, while also making it possible to stop to see the sights along the way. Of course, though, driving will be a long process, and it could be quite dangerous if you’re not prepared to survive in the Australian outback. Companies like Burswood Car Rentals can help you to choose a vehicle that will be sensible in this sort of terrain. Just remember, if you're driving out in the bush be sure to pack some spare petrol just in case.

Taking to the sky can be a great way to make good time when you’re in a country like Australia. Helicopters have become common across this country, with their use being very popular in farming. This makes it possible to find tour companies wherever you are, and you can even think about chartering your own flight if you want to travel over a long distance. You will be able to see loads from the cockpit of a helicopter.

If you've travelled down the Great Ocean Road, you might want to consider booking a helicopter tour over the 12 Apostles. This will give you a once in a lifetime view of the gorgeous coastline. Uber has even gotten in on the helicopter spirit. If you're wanting to make a grand entrance into the Melbourne Cup, why not book a helicopter Uber with your friends! It will definitely beat the long cab and train queues.

If you look at a map of Australia, you’ll quickly notice that most of the large cities and towns are dotting the coast, rather than covering the inner reaches of the country. This can make travelling by boat a great way to see everything in Australia, while also getting to enjoy a unique experience on the water. Yacht and boat rental is popular in Australia, and there are plenty of large companies that have pickup and drop off points across the nation.

Public Transport
Are you trying to travel Australia on a budget? Public transport might be the best option for you. There are train lines in more major Australia cities with trams and buses operating to get you pretty much anywhere you need to go. Whilst flights to and from the major cities can be quite inexpensive, if you're wanting to maximise your Aussie experience, taking overnight trains or buses from the major cities might be your best bet. 

Getting your way across a place as large as Australia can be a challenge. A lot of people struggle with this, finding it hard to know what they need to do when they’re attempting this feat. Of course, though, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out what needs to be done before you set off, and taking some time to plan it all will make it even easier.

And until next time...
