When flying into Australia, there are a multitude of airports that you may fly into, such as Canberra International Airport in Australian Capital Territory, Hobart International Airport in Tasmania or Perth Airport in Western Australia. However, most international travellers will enter the country through Sydney Airport, which is the busiest airport in Australia and one of the oldest continually operated airports in the world. Serving over 40 national and international carriers, Sydney airport was used by over 35 million passengers in 2011.
Shuttle bus is available to take you from the airport to your hotel for around $15. Rail service is also available but does not offer much of a discount to travellers in comparison to shuttle bus or rental car. With a well-maintained system of roads and highways throughout the country and many rental-car companies to choose from, renting a car is an easy way to enjoy Australia on your own schedule while keeping within your travel budget.
Most of the northern parts of Australia experience a tropical climate, including a summer monsoon season. The southeast of Australia experiences a temperate climate and changing seasons similar to those in England. Southwest Australia has a Mediterranean climate, including hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Most of the interior of the country is arid or semi-arid. While travelling, keep in mind that since Australia is in the southern hemisphere, summers are from December to February and winters run from June to August.
If you fly into Sydney, the city will have plenty of things for you to see and do, including the world-famous Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbour, Sydney Olympic Park and numerous museums and galleries. With its many beaches, Australia offers everything from Bondi Beach in Sydney to Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast, as well as the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland. Both the plants and animals of Australia are unique to the continent, and in addition to the many wildlife parks and zoos available in the larger cities, many of this country's beloved animals can be seen in the wild as well. If you are looking for a more rugged adventure, Australia's outback offers everything from organized convoys in remote areas to main roads that can be travelled easily to national parks.
