There is no one right way to explore Australia. The terrain and the country itself is so varied that that you actually need a few different means of travel to see it all. Let’s look at some of the best ways to get around when you want to see what Australia has to offer.
The simplest and, therefore, the most popular method of getting around in a tour of Australia is to take a bus. You can travel easily with a group of people and see the major sights that are part of the tour. Your guide can call out the famous landmarks and give you some history of what you are looking at. But when you are part of a tour bus tour, you have to work with the schedule that is already set up. Most of them operate on a pretty tight schedule.
If you want a bit more freedom, you can take a riding tour. These are ideal for some of the more rugged areas of Australia, such as the national parks and trails. The pace is decided as much by the tour guide as it is by the horses themselves, and you can expect to move at a relaxed pace and have time to soak in all the sights and sounds of the outdoors.
This tour is all about you. When you ride in a chauffeured car, you get to set the schedule. This kind of tour is most ideal for the big cities- Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and the like. You can take your time and stay for as long as you want at all the sights. But keep in mind that the chauffeur is on the clock. You’ll be paying for those extra minutes gazing at architecture.
