Australia is a continent, similar in size to the USA (excluding Alaska). It is a place of varied climates and landscape, from rainforest to arid desert regions, magnificent coastlines and spectacular ranges and gorges.

When travelling, it is wise to always do some research before hand. In this section we have provided some information and links to resources, tools and tips to help you plan your trip.
 

Climate, Weather and Season
During the summer months of December to February it is hot in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. If visiting the Great Barrier Reef, the main rain period is January to February. In northern Queensland, parts of the Northern Territory and Western Australia, roads may flood during the January to March 'wet season'. The ski season occurs from June to October in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Check out our Weather and Season section for more information, including climate conditions for our capital cities.
Maps
You can source maps from places such as the travel and tourist offices, the Australian Tourism Commission and web sites, local Information Offices around the states, motoring associations, and a variety of web sites that promote their local area. AusEmade provide some simple maps to assist visitors.
National Parks
Tasmania, 1863 saw the first laws passed in Australia to protect scenic areas. Today there are well over 3,000 protected areas, conservation parks, reserves and refuges that have been set aside in Australia. When visiting national parks it is often required to pay a nominal fee for each vehicle. Click here for a variety of national parks related links. Also visit the Australian Tourism Net guide to the Australian National Parks.
Islands
Australia has hundreds of islands, including those of the Great Barrier Reef and Australia's External Territories. Many islands offer all sorts of accommodation from luxury resorts to camping grounds, as well as a variety of activities including swimming, bushwalking, camping, fishing, diving, bird watching and general boating activities.
State and Territory Tourism Offices
Information is available from the various State and Territory Tourism Offices. When you visit a place, it is often useful to make the Tourism or Information Centre your first port of call. They can provide you with general information about the area, local accommodation and places to see. Just following the international information symbol.
