GET YOUR GUIDE in Australia

Travelling in Australia comes with lots of interesting experiences and discoveries. The most beautiful memories are formed with well-organised tour operator services, which offer travellers services that are tailored to their needs. GET YOUR GUIDE is one of those platforms that tries to help its customers by making their trips more exciting with its incredible offers, which enrich experiences with a choice of activities. You can visit Airlie Beach where you’ll be guided to the best diving locations. You can experience the eight-hour trip with HI membership and get 10% off. Then there’s Melbourne with three latest activities. You can visit the Melbourne Zoo which houses over 320 animal species. The 200-hectare Werribee Open Range Zoo offers an African adventure where you can see lions, gorillas, monkeys, hippos, rhinos and other animals, while SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium has a little over 10,000 animals you can also feed at the top of the 2,200,000-litre seawater tank. Taronga Zoo in Sydney welcomes you with almost 4,000 animals. These include both native and exotic animal species.

Travelling around Australian states with Tiqets

The aim of this innovative ticket-selling platform is to bring culture closer to travellers and make it accessible to everyone. Tiqets offers a quicker access to the world’s major attractions by letting you skip the long queue and simply enter your chosen landmark without the wait. Since it was founded in 2014, Tiqets has helped millions of people experience their chosen attraction, even with a last-minute purchase. We’ve made a selection of some of Australia’s most interesting attractions you can visit with Tiqets, plus you get 7% off as HI members. With the Outer Reef Cruise and Activity Platform, you can go diving in the Great Coral Reef, starting from Port Douglas. This activity includes a tropical lunch. In Sydney, you can book a guided tour of the Sydney Opera House, which includes a meal and a drink. Of course, you shouldn’t miss Uluru, the sandstone monolith, which dates back to the Stone Age. You can hire the Uluru audio guide, which is available in seven languages. You can also go on a trip outside Melbourne and take the 243-kilometre-long Great Ocean Road as part of a guided tour in English. Or maybe a five-hour excursion from the Gold Coast to the Natural Bridge in Springbrook National Park, where you can marvel at the park’s beauty, is more your thing.


Rent a HERTZ vehicle

The world’s longest road is located in Australia, with the distance of 14,500 kilometres. Compare that to our planet’s diameter, which is 12,742 kilometres. The continent measures about 4,000 kilometres from one end to the other, making it similar to the United States or the distance between Barcelona and Moscow. If you wanted to visit every Australian beach, it would take you thirty years to visit them all.

The Hertz company can help you travel around Australia. It has 255 pick-up locations across the country where you can pick up or leave your road vehicle. Protecting the environment and having positive influence on it means travelling in large groups. Only then are we aware of our carbon footprint, which shows how much carbon dioxide we emit into the environment. You can learn more about carbon offset in tourism and how, as an individual, you can be more aware of offsetting carbon emissions on our new website, Travel Different for Future.


HI Slovenia members get 10% off all Hertz services. You can take a look at all that Hertz offers when renting a car in the article Travel with Hertz. You can also find useful tips on how to travel around in your car and what to look out for on Australia’s roads in our volunteer’s article about travelling in Australia – The Land Down Under – Part 2

An alternative to renting a car at Hertz is, of course, using the public transport. Australia has trains, buses, ferries and trams. By using public transport for travelling, you produce less greenhouse emissions into the environment, better protecting our planet. Due to their negative effects on the environment, carbon dioxide emissions cause global warming and environmental changes. We’ve prepared a few tips on sustainable tourism and using public transport in our article – How to Travel Eco-Friendly and Have Fun at the Same Time?

Australia and its main features

Before you travel to Australia, it’s good to take a look at some of the basic information about the continent. You can start by decoding Australia’s flag. It represents the country’s relationship with the UK – the Union Jack in the left upper corner shows that Australia was once a British colony. The large star in the lower part symbolises shared prosperity, while the five stars in the right half represent the Southern Cross constellation.
