The joy of going down below, of seeing kangaroos and koalas for the first time into pristine waters and soaking up the summer heat, is quick to be swept away. But you need to know some vital things that can save you from disappointment and misunderstanding.
1. Do not transform into an empty BBQ
Never show up empty-handed if you are invited to a BBQ in Australia, whether at home, at the park, or on the beach. If you’re making a salad bowl, giving meat to the BBQ, bring a cake, or buying some alcohol (a bottle of wine or champers are a fine choice), always got to send everything, and thank you very much.
2. Local language learning
The Australians speak English but appear to have their own slang terms that influence their Australian language strongly. To help you out, here are some words you should think about with the American translation of English: thongs = flip flops; togs/swimmers/bathers = bath suite; tomato sauce = ketchup; U-ey chuck = turn around, want to join us for tea = want to go to dinner.
3. In Australia, the summer is different
There is a different form of summer in each Australian city. No matter where you are, don’t wear a lot of sunblocks. Every city offers something different from the dry summers of Perth to the rainy summer of Brisbane to the cold summer in Hobart – summer, if you may name it, plus a year-long summer in Darwin. So brace yourself for something.
4. Using several sunblocks
You’d like to go to the pool, take rays and get a great tan. Don’t. Don’t. Don’t. Well only if you smother in sunblock because the sun is rough in Australia. Not only is Australia heated very rapidly with a thinner ozone layer, but the rays also damage the skin to such a degree that you may experience sizzling and sunburn that lasts for weeks. You may want to put on a hat and a sundress or shirt to keep your skin covered if you have very pale skin.
5. Australia is enormous
No, Australia’s enormous! You might think you could fly from one side of the country to the other quickly, but it takes five or three days to fly from Brisbane to Perth. It’s not a simple feat. Every state, however, is so vast that plenty can be done. There is never a boring day regardless of whether you hit two or more states and territories or just stick to one.
6. You won’t see anywhere wildlife, nor is it all dangerous.
It is impractical to dream and expect Kangaroos and Koalas to wander the streets; wildlife has rapidly grown into towns, and if you want to visit these indigenous animals, then a park is the perfect place to visit it. Although all you see is not fatal on the subject of animals, it’s unlikely that they can actually kill you even if you come into contact with a more risky creature.
7. Tobacco is not cool
It isn’t a cheap habit, whether you smoke or not, but in Australia. You would not want to get the habit here unless you are ready to say farewell to the dream holiday, car, home, and list if a $40 law is soon passed for one cigarette packet. Yeah, there are a lot of cigarettes on the packets, with very bad images.
8. Get ready to go offline
Unlike in London, where the internet is everywhere, the internet in Australia can be sluggish and costly. The best and cheapest choice is to purchase a hotspot to get around you if you have to stay linked. It not only binds you but also helps others to act as a portable charger for your devices! The best part about this is!
9. The new Oreos is Tim Tams.
Tim Tams came first technically, but Australians prefer to preserve them – you’re going to understand plenty. Tim Tams can complete a packet in the blink of an eye, so make sure you get your bag packed for your journey to Australia.
10. Aussies have no cups
Australian money is plastic and colorful, and the notes are growing in size. Often, all is rounded up to five cents, so 5 cents are the smallest shift.
11. Cars go left Cars
Australia is very popular as it’s not usually the best public transit, but it depends on the city you’re in. Care to stay left when it comes to driving. If you intend to walk and take public transport, though, remember to drive cars on the left so make sure to look right before you cross. Or look in both directions before crossing, to ensure that you are incredibly secure – that’s what you should do.
12. Rugby and AFL are better than soccer
Football is perfect for the rest of the world, but Australia’s favorite sports are AFL and rugby. If you arrive at the right time in the Country, buy tickets and go to a game or watch a television with a couple of bottles of beer, and take your preferred Australian pastimes.
13. Swim among the flags still.
But remember how Australia has shark-infested water? This may seem trivial? Ok, you’re less likely to come face to face when you’re swimming between the flags. These flags are also used to shield you from harmful swells. Do not swim alone if you want to go into the sea.
14. Display a certain respect
Now, you may not meet a whole tribe, but many Australians show great respect today for the people who live or are stepping on the natives and Torres Strait Islander; after all, they are the traditional owners of the land you live on. These observances would also be paid verbally before such activities, ceremonies, and meetings.
