USE PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Living like a local in a major Australian city means using public transport. Often, it’s the easiest and most convenient way to get around. Each city has a slightly different system, so check the state’s transportation website for more information on how to pay, where to take the train, and whether there are free shuttles throughout the city center. do not offer one-way tickets and that you may need to use prepaid travel cards, such as the Myki card in Melbourne and the Opal card in Sydney .
GET ORGANIZED WITH AN APP
Traveling alone can be liberating and exciting, but remembering every detail can be difficult. Upload an itinerary creation app to your phone, like TripIt , which saves all your bookings in one place for you to check them later. Other applications allow you to download maps that can be accessed offline. CityMaps2Go allows you to download city maps and place pins on the attractions you wish to visit.
SIGN UP FOR A COURSE

Whether it’s a Queensland scuba lesson, a Melbourne yoga class, a surf lesson at Bondi Beach or a kayak tour on the Brisbane River, the course you sign up for can only become one of the highlights of the your trip.
