Australia is known for being a popular country for backpackers. People travel the country on a shoestring budget, managing to do it even with the high cost of living. Many people stay for a year or more on a working holiday visa. However, for some people, that's not the way they want to see such a magnificent country. If you prefer to travel in comfort, you're probably
looking for something with a little more luxury. Australia isn't just a country for backpackers, and you can enjoy a luxury trip there too. Pack your bags and check out how you can do it.

Look for Luxury Accommodation

The backpacker's choice of accommodation is usually a hostel, where they can stay for extended periods on a small budget . It's a great thing to do if you want to meet fellow travelers. However, if you have more money to spend, you might want something more sophisticated. You'll find excellent options for a luxurious stay across the country. The first option you could consider is a hotel. You can find luxury brands such as Four Seasons or boutique offerings for independent hotels. If you want more privacy, you should look into
renting an apartment or house.

Travel in Style

Australia is a vast country and if you want to see a lot of it, you need to choose a way to travel.  You could hire a car for a roadtrip, but there are more comfortable options. Of course, you could fly for a short journey. However, if you want to see some scenery along the way, you should consider some other choices. For example, a cruise around the coast is an excellent way to see some of the major cities. You could also take the train and pay for a cabin, which can give you magnificent views of the outback.

Take a Private Tour

When you arrive in the country, you could wander around with a guide book. However, the way to really get to know somewhere new is to have a local person show you around. You'll find companies like Kimberley Tours that can offer you a private tour. A local guide can not only show you all the best places but share their knowledge about the area too. Your tour could be on foot, in a 4x4, or even by bike. There are all kinds of tours you might enjoy,
depending on what sort of traveller you are. If you love the outdoors, you can get out into nature. If you're more of a city dweller, you could take a tour based on food, architecture, art, and more.

Find a Luxury Hideaway

If you want to avoid backpackers and tourists, it's a good idea to stay away from the cities.  Instead, you can find yourself a luxury hideaway. Australia has some great islands and remote retreats where you can get away from it all. Take a boat to Tasmania's Satellite Island or go deep into the bush to spend your time at a spa.

Australia offers plenty for the luxury traveler. You don't have to travel like a backpacker or even be anywhere near them.

One day wander in Lucban Quezon

After in hiatus for several months on the road I finally had this opportunity again to hit the road last February 21.  It was officially our first road travel this year after I had my C-section operation last December so I have to confine myself at home most of the time to recuperate.  But of course I was not 100% at home because confinement will kill me to death.. ha ha! It would already be a pleasure for me if I go walking the streets around the neighborhood to grasp fresh air, but once in a while I’m still longing for nature, clear skies, and travelling the road.


We planned a day tour out of town which could be easily reached by car where we have not explored yet.  There are many to choose from actually, either North or South.  But we have decided to go to Lucban, Quezon to visit “Kamay ni Hesus Shrine” while the weather is still cold, because in summer it would be too hot and humid as you have to ascend the long stretch of steps to get to the top.  Kamay ni Hesus is a pilgrimage si…

3 days Ilocos tour – Vigan, Paoay, Burgos and Pagudpud

This is the memorable vacation I had this year, because not only I have with me my family, but together with my friends with their families also.  This trip has been long been planned since last quarter of last year that every time we have a get together this Ilocos trip has been brought over our discussions as our next itinerary until we were able to finalize the date when everyone can join, and so the set date was last February 22 to February 25.

Beach resort in Sariaya, Quezon

Sometimes there are travels which are unplanned which will push through when time and resources connives with what the majority want.  Just like this one long weekend when we went to a beach resort in Sariaya, Quezon, it was an unplanned trip to the beach with the family, it just emanated when one of my daughter simply would like to go for a swim in our clubhouse but her sister want to go out of town on a weekend and suddenly I want to go to the beach.   Finally we ended our conversation in going to a beach resort within a short proximity from Metro Manila.  Our choices were Batangas, Olongapo and Quezon, but the latter won the vote because we haven’t been to any beaches in Quezon.
