You know, for being that close to Antarctica, this continent can get pretty hot. And it’s big; in fact it’s the sixth largest country in the world. It is comprised of 6 states and several territories, which includes Tasmania and other islands. Most of its 24 million people live on the eastern seaboard and are urbanised. That’s because Australia is known for its Outback; a vast inland territory spread throughout 5 states. Only Victoria seemed to have missed it. It’s largely empty with very few people scattered all over. And as mentioned before, it’s very, very hot. If your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, that will be it. There will be nowhere to hide. No trees, no rocks, no shade. You will be Sunday’s tender roast dinner within a couple of hours. Vultures are waiting around with knives and forks, every 100 yards and ready to pounce. But don’t let that scare you. Australia is not just vultures and a killer sun. There are also poisonous snakes and spiders, stinging scorpions, man-eating crocodiles and hungry dingos. My job is to point you in their directions, so without further ado, here are the best places to visit in Australia.
To get to the capital of Western Australia, Perth, you would need a few things. First on the list would be some sleeping pills, because that flight will be looooong. If you are one of the lucky ones and can afford a First Class ticket where you can stretch your legs out, you wouldn’t need to see a chiropractor when you touch down. Otherwise the 18-hour flight will contort you in all different shapes and angles. Almost like a game of twister. Sunscreen is also on that list, because… you know. The temperatures can easily sore into the mid-forties and had been recorded as high as 50.5 degrees Celsius. The tar in the streets start to melt, ice-creams evaporate into puffs of steam and when a dog chases a cat, they both walk.
