If you are planning to travel and visit Australia, then I have some useful tips that can help you along the way. First of all, you must know that the best way you can see the beauty of Australia is by taking a road trip with a van. If you don’t have one, then I suggest that you buy one immediately or if you don’t want to spend so much money you have the option of renting a van.

One more important thing before you go to Australia is to go through a complete mechanical check, so you won’t have any surprises on the open road. Also, I would suggest that you get an international driving permit, that will serve you well when you arrive in Australia.

Monitor your Fuel

This is very important advice because sometimes the indicator in your vehicle can lie. I have gone through this many times, while I am passing a city I take a look at the fuel meter and it is pointing that I have more than half of my tank still left. So, I pass the town and after around 2 hours of driving on the open road, my van suddenly stops.

I ran out of fuel and now I have no gas station near me. Luckily for me, I always carry an extra can bottle of fuel that is enough to save me and take me to the nearest gas station. So, my tip is to always fill up your vehicle with fuel if you have the opportunity and to carry a larger bottle of fuel with yourself just in case.

Stay Hydrated

This doesn’t mean that you have to be loaded up fully with just water but to have enough. How much is enough you might ask, well it depends if you were to visit some colder place you probably be alright with drinking about 3l per day. However, we are now talking about the Australian sun which can be very hot in the summer, especially for people that are not used to it.

I would suggest drinking about 3-4l a day and eating fruits that are full of vitamins and moist.
