Things To Consider Before Travelling To Australia
1. Visa Requirements
Hotels: If you're planning on staying in a hotel, make sure to book your room in advance as they can fill up quickly, especially during peak tourist season.
Motels: Motels are a cheaper alternative to hotels and can be found all across Australia.
Hostels: Hostels are a great option for backpackers and budget-minded travellers. They typically have dormitory style rooms with shared bathrooms.
Hostels: Hostels are sometimes thought of as the residences of backpackers and young people traveling about, but many boutique hostels provide guests with private rooms, making them ideal for families and individuals on a budget.
Airbnb: This can be a great option for finding unique places to stay, such as apartments, houses, and even treehouses! However they might be more expensive than hotels - costing at least $200++ per night.

While Travelling In Australia:
1) Getting Around
Renting a car and driving around Australia is a great way to see the country. Roads are generally in good condition, although there can be some traffic in larger cities. Rest areas and service stations will be found at frequent intervals during long journeys. Car rental agencies may be found near major airports and downtown destinations, so hire a car, 4WD, or caravan and head out on the highway.
The transportation options are reasonably priced and will get you to all of the major sights without the problem of locating parking. Some services, such as Melbourne's City Circle Tram, are completely free! In Sydney, there are restrictions on weekly transport costs, so you will never pay more than the maximum weekly charge no matter how frequently you utilize the transportation system. Buses, metros, trains and trams can accommodate prams and other accessibility needs, making them a fantastic choice for transport.
2) Food Safety
3) Healthcare in Australia
Medicare is the public healthcare system in Australia. Healthcare services in Australia are paid for by the Australian Government and by private health insurance.
For Australians, Medicare provides subsidised or even free cover for certain healthcare services. Medicare does not cover all required treatments. It goes to the doctor and some prescription drugs as part of public hospital services. It does not include things such as private hospital procedures, ambulance services, and extra services like eyeglasses, dental treatment, and natural cures. This is why so many Australians purchase private health insurance.
The World Health Organization ranks Australia's healthcare system as the 32nd most efficient in the world. Australian healthcare includes first-rate hospitals and clinics, as well as cutting-edge diagnostic and testing technologies. However, due to the country's vast size, providing medical care in Australia has its difficulties. Patients in rural and remote areas have fewer health treatment alternatives than those who live in cities.
Expatriates in Australia who are not permanent residents are responsible for their own health-care expenses. This includes expatriates on most work visas living in Australia. People going to Australia should have their own private international health insurance policy that covers healthcare expenditures.
