The route up (or down) the Australian East coast is THE most travelled back packer route in the world, or so my Travel agent told me sitting in rainy London many months ago now. Being such an audacious claim I’m not going to put my head on the line and endorse this, but there’s no mistaking it as a mecca of travel for backpackers, flashpackers, career breakers and wandering souls…Posted on: July 30th in Australia, Travel by Graham Padmore.

Australia is an incredible country; there is something for everyone. If you are a party animal you can head up the East Coast, if you prefer scenery then the West Coast is the way forward. Australia has some excellent cities; my personal favourites include Melbourne, Perth and Sydney (although one place I would recommend avoiding is Canberra – it’s a random city in the middle of nowhere with not much to see or do). When visiting, if possible try to buy or hire a car. It can be expensive but this will allow you to see much more and it will give you the flexibility a country like Australia needs.
