Based on Finder’s research, the number of Australia’s visitors happened to exceed 9 million in 2018 and this number continues to grow each year. Visiting Australia is incomplete without visiting some of the world famous places and stunning sights, make sure you venture outside of the big cities to see the best parts of the country. If you’re about to plan your trip to this country, don’t let regret consume you right after wrapping up your visit in Australia because you missed some of the most iconic places. Create a to do list so that you can prioritise the places you most want to visit and ensure that nothing gets skipped from you dream trip.


Organisation is the key to a successful overseas trip. You may not speak the language or be familiar with transport options or costs so it is important to be organised beforehand. By researching and organising your trip prior to departure you will be able to avoid a lot of potential hassle and confusion. Plan out the activities you will do each day, how much they cost, what you will eat, where you will stay the night and how you will get to and from places, don’t forget to budget in some shopping money for Australian Souvenirs too! This will also help to make sure you are able to do all the things you most wanted to see and do on your visit.


Making a to-do list also needs to include your priority scale which shows important things to unimportant ones for you to discard some activities that are only wasting your time and replace or allocate the time to the most important ones. It is also necessary to consider travel time and what you will do if there are delays, for example do you have enough time between flights to get through strict Australian border security or will you risk missing a connection because of misallocated time. By planning your to do list with timings, you’ll be more efficient and will ensure that you don’t miss your most important activities.

Be disciplined Having a prepared plan with all your travel organised, your sightseeing prioritised and your timing allocated correctly is great but it all means nothing if you are not able to stick to it. Sometimes things may happen that you don’t have control over such as illness, lost luggage or flight delays and in these times you simply must make the best of it. But mostly things will be able to go more or less to plan as long as you have the discipline to stick to it. It can be tempting if you are tired to skip an activity or sleep in a bit in exchange for catching a later bus but this can lead to regrets especially if this might be your only chance to visit Australia, you may miss something you can never see again. Best to stay disciplined and stick to your to do list, you have spent time researching this trip, thinking about what you want to do and planning all the details, therefore you have already figured out the best trip for you so don’t miss out on any of it.
