About Australia Destinations
Australia is the smallest continent in the world, and ironically also the largest island that exists. The country has long been a favoured travel destination from India. From iconic landmarks to great underwater scene – Australia makes sure it has something for everyone. If water or sightseeing is not your thing, then there are beautiful hiking trails to explore and mind-blowing natural destinations to see like the pink-coloured lakes Spencer and Hillier. Before Australia travel, it can help to know some basic things about the country, its various places to visit, things to do, shopping destinations and beaches to settle down for the day.
Here are some things you need to know about Australia.
Great Barrier Reef
It is undeniable that the Great Barrier Reef is the main reason behind the ever-growing Australia tourism. Australia has forever boasted its 2000 km long coral reef on the western coast by the Pacific Ocean, and rightfully so. This is the world’s largest natural coral reef, and it can be explored from the west coast along Queensland and from the various off-shore islands as well. Snorkelling, scuba diving, coral exploration, helmet diving, submarine diving and swimming with the turtles and whale sharks are some of the best activities that can be done at the barrier reef. This is only the things that can be done under the water surface. Over the surface, surfing, waterboarding, paddle-boarding, jet skiing – the options are endless.
Watching the southern lights
One can do a lot of things during the Australia trip – beaches, underwater life, hiking trails, shopping, temple visits and so on. But the one thing that most people overlook is the magnificent, surreally beautiful southern lights. Although not as popular as its northern sister Borealis, the Aurora Australis is quite as pretty to soak your eyes in. The best vantage point is from Mount Wellington in Tasmania. Take in the gorgeous green lights hanging down from the sky like natural festive streamers. Once you have experienced this once-in-a-lifetime view, no other thing could look quite as impressive.
Major cities in Australia
Sydney: It is one of Australia’s largest cities and also the capital of New South Wales. The famous Sydney Opera House is the iconic landmark of Australia, and the harbour front is known for the legendary New Year’s Eve fireworks celebrations.
Melbourne: Melbourne is the leading coastal city of Australia, located in the state of Victoria. Situated on the Yarra River, Melbourne is known for its Federation Square and a great scene for indigenous art.
Brisbane: At the other end of the Pacific Highway that shoots off from Sydney is Brisbane. The capital of Queensland is home to numerous galleries, museums, botanical garden, cultural institutions and Mount Coot-Tha.
Adelaide: The capital of South Australia has a lovely zoo and renowned institutions like the Art Gallery of South Australia and South Australia Museum.
Darwin: Once a famous frontier outpost during the world war, Darwin is now the dazzling capital of Northern Territory and the gateway to Kakadu National Park. It has some great waterfront locations, museums, the Bicentennial Park and the crocodile diving facility – Cage of Death.
A very important part of Australia visit is roaming around the city in the urban centres. Local transport is top-notch, and so are the local shopping and dining destinations. While on Australia trip, try out the original Carlton draught beer and one of the beach parties at Bondi Beach. Do not miss a chance to see some real, wild Kangaroos at the Kangaroo Island either.
Travel To Australia
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Average India to Australia distance by air is around 5000 km, but it can change by a margin depending on which city one is flying in from. It is difficult to pinpoint India to Australia flight time because there are multiple flights from multiple Indian cities to multiple Australian airports. Most of the flights are of a one-stop variety. They have layovers at the South-east Asia region, like Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Hong Kong before making their way to Australia. One of the only India to Australia flights which are non-stop is operated by Air India and flies from Delhi to Australia. It takes 12 hours 25 minutes India to Australia flight duration to travel from Indira Gandhi International Airport to Sydney Airport. Other carriers with India to Australia flight routes are Jet Airways, Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon, Thai Airways and Australia’s flag bearer Qantas Airways. Thai Airways’ 13 hours 30-minute flight from Kolkata to Sydney with an hour and a half stop at Bangkok is the other best option.
There are no railway links between India and Australia. But once again, one can use the Countrylink-operated railway network within the country. Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Alice Springs, Perth and Adelaide are well-connected by both Ghan and India-Pacific links. Indian-Pacific connects Sydney-Adelaide-Perth, The Ghan connects Adelaide-Alice Springs-Darwin, and The Overland connects Melbourne-Adelaide routes.
There is obviously no way to go from India to Australia by road. One must reach Australia by air first to any of the cities with an international airport and then drive to the other cities. There are local buses and cabs available from the airport itself. However, the distance between cities like Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide is quite a lot. Instead of taking the roadway, one can easily go for domestic flights. It is much better and quicker option for tourists unless one specifically wants to go for the long drive along the Pacific Highway. For self-drive, the tourists must have International Driver’s License.
