Documents required to go to Australia

Passport with visa, travellers can get a tourist visa through our office when they book. Do not forget to respect the Customs and quarantine regulations regarding animals imports, plants , animal or vegetable items. It is forbidden to import milk and derivatives, meat, fish, seeds, legumes, plants, animals, fruits and fresh vegetables.

Sanitary Conditions in Australia

Sanitary conditions are very good and it is not necessary to have any particular vaccinations. A bilateral health agreement that covers medical assistance for 6 months is in force. To take advantage of this travellers have to go to a Medical office with the passport and the health card. The agreement is valid for specialist medical services and for urgent admissions to a public hospital. It is necessary to pay for the ambulance.

Summertime in Australia

ACT (Australian Capital Territory), Victoria, NSW (New South Wales) and SA (South Australia) have the same summertime from the last Sunday of October to the last Sunday of March. The summertime in Tasmania starts the first Sunday of October and ends the last Sunday of March. Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia do not follow the summertime and remain respectively in Eastern, Central and Western Time.

Climate in Australia

Australia is between the temperate zone and tropical zone. Most of the continent has clear sky and not much rain. The temperatures are particularly high during the southern summer (December/February). In the middle of the summer (January), the temperature is 29° degrees (northern zone), 17° degrees (southern zone) and in July it varies between 25° degrees (north) and 8° degrees (south). The coldest zones are the mountains, the tableland of Tasmania island and the eastern part. The hottest month, almost everywhere, is January. From October to November there is the risk of cyclones in the north of Western Australia. The rains are more plentiful during January and February in the north of the country. The driest months are July and August, especially in the central and southern zones.

Caution in Australiaareas

As there are long distances between towns, the Australian authorities recommend travellers preferring to travel with the Fly & Drive system to be prudent. Anyone who would like to drive through the Australian Deserts has to have at least 2 cars with telephone and radio, a generous stock of food, water, spare parts and careful planning.

To drive in Australia

You will need an international driving licence or an English translation of your driving licence to drive in Australia. To rent a car you must be over 21 years old and have had your driving licence for more than 12 months. Left-hand drive.
