All we need is the relevant travel documents, and we’re good to go! Whatever you like, there will be something that suits you down to a tee.

So why do so many of us stick to the same old routes? Choosing a simple, sunny holiday where we opt to spend our days laying on a sun lounger. Sure, this is relaxing. It’s great for a little rest and recuperation. But there’s so much more out that for you to experience! Want proof? Well, let’s start by taking a look at Perth, Australia. This could well prove to be the Perth-ect get away for you. Here’s everything that you’d need for the trip!

VISAs

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia. The majority of its metropolitan area lies on the Swan Coastal Plain, which is a narrow strip between the Indian Ocean and the Darling Scarp. If you’re not from Australia and plan to travel there, you’re going to have to plan well in advance. For visiting, you are likely to require a VISA. There are various different types available, so do your research and find out which one in particular you need. More information on this can be found on the Australian Government’s page for Immigration and Border Control.

Money

Again, if you don’t hail from Australia originally, you’re going to have to ensure you have the right currency to get you by while you’re in the country. This is the Australian dollar. Conversion is simple, and you will be able to swap your own cash to AUD in travel agents.

Transport

Alongside being the capital of Western Australia, Perth is also the largest city in Western Australia. So to get a full taste of the area, you’re going to need to be able to get from A to B conveniently. The best way to do this is to rent a car in Perth. Public transport links may well be great, but your vacation will be bound by timetables and designated stops. A car gives you the freedom of the open road, as well as storage for your belongings and air conditioning to make the journey in the hot weather a whole lot more pleasant.

 

Sunscreen

As we’ve just mentioned, the weather in this area is generally hot. If you travel from December through to March, you’ll experience particular highs, so you need to make sure you are prepared. This means packing plenty of sunscreens. This is an absolute essential, as you don’t want to expose yourself to sun damage. It’s also a good idea to generally avoid being outdoors around midday when temperature often peaks and to wear a sunhat and glasses for extra protection and comfort too!

These are just the basics, but ensuring that you have them will make your time in Perth a whole lot more pleasant. So, get searching for the best accommodation to suit your needs, don’t forget your swimsuit and get booking your flights!
