After months of hard work and all the daydreaming about your vacation, you finally got some time away from your office, your conference calls, your bosses, co-workers and clients. The thing you need to do now is relax and recharge your batteries, so that you can return home fresh and with a lot of positive energy. You’re going to Australia and all you want is to enjoy all the luxury that your hard-earned money can buy. And if you need ideas on how to completely indulge in the opulence of this wonderful country, here are some tips for you.
Choose the best location
If you’re wondering exactly what to visit while in Australia, you might want to start in Sydney, which has a lot to offer to any traveler. If extravagance is what you’re after, you could have a meal in one of many wonderful restaurants there, or spend the evening at the Sydney Opera House. There are many other things you can do there, many museums and galleries you can see, or even pay to have a luxury catamaran sail you around Sydney Harbor. Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide are similar to Sydney in the abundance of places to visit, so you can opt for one of these cities, too. If you want something more upscale, go to one of Australia’s islands. Makepeace Island is in Queensland, and so are Bedarra Island and Lizard Island, both a part of the Great Barrier Reef. Also, you could consider Kangaroo Island in South Australia, Lord Howe Island in New South Wales or Bremer Island in the Northern Territory. All these islands are breathtakingly beautiful and they offer stunningly clear water, amazing beaches and incredible plant and animal world.
Travel with style
In order for your vacation to start on a posh note, you can choose to fly first class. That way you can fully enjoy your trip to Australia, with flight attendants pampering you and tending to your every need, while you lie back and read a book or sleep your way to Australia. However, if you don’t mind flying in economy class, you can use the money you saved on the plane ticket to get from the airport to the hotel of your choice in style. For example, you might want to treat yourself with the best limo service. Sink into those gorgeous leather seats while soaking in the scenery and probably quite a few jealous glances through the windows. When you invest in premium service like this, you even get complementary wi-fi inside the car, so that you can stream your experience live to your friends or family and share the sheer joy of it.
Pick a date
Making your Australian experience a lavishing one won’t really be possible if you choose the wrong time to travel there. Since the country is a big one, with different climates in different parts of it, you have to know where exactly you’re planning to go and then decide on the date accordingly. If you want to enjoy the southern parts of the country and big cities like Sydney, Perth or Melbourne, some recommendation would be to go during their summer, which is between December and March. As far as the coastal tropics go, you should probably avoid the monsoonal months of November through March and spend your vacation there during the dry season, which lasts from April to November, with lovely sunny days and nights cool enough for you to sleep pleasantly. The interior of the country should be visited during autumn months, since the weather is more moderate then, while the summer is extremely hot and it’s freezing in winter. Of course, if you have enough time, you can start from the south in March, then move towards the north at the beginning of autumn to make the best of Australian weather.
Find the most comfortable accommodation
Whether you choose to stay in a city or on one of the islands, the accommodation you book will play a huge role in making your stay as pleasurable as possible. You can get anything you could want from your hotel room, from mind-blowing views of the most impressive beaches or mountains, to lavish beds and all the mouth-watering food and drink you desire. You can stay in a huge hotel in the city center or in a lovely villa on some secluded part of an island, where you’ll see only koalas and turtles. Whatever your preference is, you’ll definitely find it in Australia and you won’t be disappointed either.
If you truly want a stress-free and somewhat hedonistic Australian vacation, choose the most luxurious options for yourself and have fun. You’ve certainly deserved it.
