Covering a total area of 7.69 million square kilometres, mainland Australia is the world’s largest island – but smallest continent. In distance, the continent stretches about 3700 kilometres from north to south and 4000 kilometres from east to west, making it the sixth-largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States and Brazil. With a population of only 23 million people it’s also gloriously uncrowded.
Australian society is made up of people from a rich variety of cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious backgrounds, and this is a defining feature of modern Australian society. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have inhabited Australia for tens of thousands of years. Most Australians are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants who arrived during the past two hundred years from more than 200 countries. 90 prosent of the population, live within 100 kilometers of the coast.
Australia is packed with things to do.
Get up close to Australia’s beautiful nature on your motorhome holiday. They have birds, plants and animals found nowhere else, 15 World Heritage-listed wonders and more than 500 national parks. Experience the transformative power of the Australian outback in the Red Centre and Western Australia’s Kimberley. Snorkel with brilliant fish and coral on Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef. See koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, sea lions, pelicans and penguins on Kangaroo Island, a haven for Australia wildlife.
Discover the wetlands and waterfalls of Kakadu National Park, home to one third of all Australian birds. Or step back in time in the Daintree Rainforest, where some of the Australian plants date back to Gondwanaland. Between May and September, you can spot whales along Western Australia’s vivid wildflower trail. The adventures and sights will make your motorhome holiday the trip of a life time. Motorhome Rental Australia
Australians are an easy-going people and the culture is fairly laid back. The locals are not overly formal in how they dress and talk and don’t like a high degree of formality from their guests. Australian culture is founded on stories of battlers, bushrangers and brave soldiers.
Of sporting heroes, working heroes and plucky migrants. It’s all about a fair go, the great outdoors and a healthy helping of irony. Today Australia also defines itself by its Aboriginal heritage, vibrant mix of cultures, innovative ideas and a thriving arts scene.
Climate and weather
Australia experiences temperate weather for most of the year but the climate can vary due to the size of our continent. The northern states typically experience warm weather much of the time, with the southern states experiencing cooler winters.
Australia is also one of the driest continents on earth with an average annual rainfall of less than 600 millimetres. Like all countries in the southern hemisphere, Australia’s seasons are opposite to those in the northern hemisphere. December to February is summer; March to May is autumn; June to August is winter; and September to November is spring.
Driving In Australia
Australians drive on the left hand side of the road. Always obey all traffic signals and signage, and wear a seatbelt whilst in a vehicle. Remember that campervans / motorhomes are double the height and length of sedan vehicles. Keep an eye out for height indicator signs, cantilever awnings, overhanging tree branches and be careful when reversing near fixed objects (walls etc.). The driver must have their licence with them at all times when driving.
They have a good motorway system makeing motorhome driveing easy. It is recommended that familiarise yourself with the Australian road rules before driving in Australia to ensure you have a safe and trouble free motorhome holiday. Always overtake to the right. Be sure you can see enough of the road to complete overtaking and move back to your side of the road. Never overtake on corners, blind rises or on double white lines. Australia is lucky to have many native animals living in their natural habitats. Enjoy them, but remember they can be a hazard on country roads. Although it is a natural instinct to swerve to avoid an animal, keep your vehicle on the same line, slow down, and stop if possible.
Remember the four basic survival rules if you are in an accident in a remote area:
1. Do not leave your vehicle.
2. Stay in the shade.
3. Conserve water.
4. Prepare effective signals
