What to Expect & Travel Tips
Be Cautious of the Wildlife
Australia is filled with daring wildlife, and some of the deadliest animals on earth. If you’re vacationing with your family, to evade danger, avoid driving at night, and in remote areas, so that you do not hit the wildlife. While swimming at the beach or doing some sporty beach activities, wear a stinger suit or swim in selected beaches with stinger nets – jellyfish roam about freely in Queensland in the summer.
UK Citizens Must Apply for an e-Visa
United Kingdom citizens, like many others, can only enter the country with an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA), automatically linked to your passport. This document will grant you permission to travel in Aussie unlimited times in a year, for up to 90 days at a time. The evisitor visa for Australia can be requested through online services such as auvisa.org and costs approximately AUD20 per passport.
Extremely Hot Sun
Travellers coming from temperate regions must be cautious of the sun. The country has several holes in the ozone layer. The UV index sometimes goes way higher than what the human body can endure- make sure to carry sunscreen with an SPF of 60+ rating. Stay out of direct sunlight, especially between 12 pm -3 pm. Drink enough fluids throughout the day.
