Information about Australia
When it comes to Australia, the place is not completely unfamiliar to Indians. Thanks to the game of cricket and its of-late quite extensive coverage, cities like Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Adelaide are known. But travelling to the place is a completely different thing. Not only one needs to have the flight and hotel bookings ready, but they need to know the important facts about Australia as well. Without proper information about Australia, the trip will not be enjoyable.
Here are all the interesting facts about Australia that one needs to know before travelling to the country.
Weather in Australia: Australia enjoys a subtropical climate on the whole. But the weather varies from the north to the south. The northern part, being closer to the equator, has very hot and humid summers. The winters there are cool and pleasant. The southern part, on the other hand, enjoys a bit of a temperate climate. They are mildly warm in summer. This is the time when the southern and western coasts of Australia get the most tourism. The waters are crystal clear with great visibility. The skies are clear. Winters in the southern part can be a bit chilly, with occasional showers as well.
Nightlife in Australia: Australia has one of the most eclectic nightlife scenes in the world. While Sydney is mostly about beach parties and bars in the 365-days festive Bondi Beach, Melbourne is a bit more creative in its ways. Oxford Art Factory in Sydney has great live music. Ponyfish Island in Melbourne is on the river, thus a must-visit. Other than that, the Fitzroy area itself is the best hub for bar-hopping. But not all about Australia nightlife has to do with clubbing and partying. Among other night things, you can dine at the Darling Harbour with your loved one, gaze the stars at Sydney Observatory, see live theatre at the Opera House, visit China Town Market or watch people in the Quay area.
Food in Australia: Before mentioning any food, one must know about Carlton draught – the very Australian beer. Food in Australia is usually very light and breezy, just like the country. The dishes they are best known for are Chicken Parmigiana – a classic Aussie chicken dis, Barbecued sausages, meat pies and among desserts, Pavlova and Lamington sponge cakes. One must not miss out on these while travelling in Australia.

Queen Victoria Building in Sydney, Block Arcade in Melbourne, McArthur Central in Brisbane, London Court in Perth falls under the first category. The Rocks near the Harbour Bridge is a great place for street shopping, so are Winter Gardens in Brisbane, Rundle Mall in Adelaide and Pitt Street Mall in Sydney.
