Plan an Australian Adventure With Downunder Travel
The world’s largest island and smallest continent, Australia offers stretches of stunning beaches, toothsome cuisine, incredible natural surrounds and outback and unique wildlife with more than 80% of the country’s species can’t be found anywhere else on earth. Australia’s heritage is rich and diverse in both history and culture; Indigenous Aboriginals are thought to have arrived at least 50,000 years ago, making Australia a land with a deep cultural history.

There really is truly nothing like Australia. If you’re planning to go the distance, all the way to Australia, your vacation must be exceptional and we will provide nothing less. There’s nothing we wouldn’t do to make your vacationing dreams come true in Australia. Considered to be the bread-and-butter of the many products we sell, many of the Destination Specialists here at Downunder Travel are also Certified Premier Aussie Specialists. This means, we have direct contact with suppliers, hotel chains and major airlines to get our travellers some of the best in prices, airfares and overall experiences, making us a unique service you can’t find on any online trip-selling website. We often visit the Great Down Under area several times a year to ensure we are well-versed in all things Aussie. What’s more, in addition to our staff being Aussie Specialists, many of our staff have lived in this country as well – either from birth or have lived in here for a period of time due to school or work – adding to the authenticity of the services we provide for clients.
Often times, clients will approach us with their own visions of the kind of vacation they’re looking for during the early planning stages of their holidays, and our true quality shines through in our service and in-depth knowledge of the country and the assistance we provide in making their dreams become a reality such as The Australian Open and so much more including transfers between destinations, with plenty of downtime in between so you’re not rushed and you can enjoy your travels with ease and comfort. We take care of every customized schedule from end-to-end, seamlessly, so you don’t have to worry about how everything will come together; that is the beauty of working with an expert in this region.

Seasons in Australia are opposite to the weather in North America – December to February is summer; March to May is autumn; June to August is winter; and September to November is spring. Australia is a lovely destination to visit year-round; known for having mild weather throughout, even during its winter. The far northern parts of the country are tropical year-round.
Canadians can enjoy safe travels year-round in Australia. We recommend that all our travellers purchase travel insurance to cover theft, loss, cancellations/travel interruptions, accidents and non-pre-existing medical problems. The (UV) sunrays in Australia are very strong and can cause a burn, even on a cloudy day.
While some vaccines may be recommended when travelling Down Under – WHO recommends travellers be up to date with their Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B shots – there aren’t any known ailments or endemic diseases where there is a need for a particular immunisation required for travel.
Currency & Customs
The currency in Australia is the Australian Dollar. Tipping is not customary; however, hotels, tour guides/ground operators and restaurants do not add service charges to your bill. If you feel your service provider went above and beyond, it is recommended to tip 10%. You are required to have a valid Australia Travel Visa.
The electrical current for Australia (and New Zealand) is 220-240 volts; it is recommended for certain appliances such as hair dryers and straighteners to bring both a plug adapter and converter. For newer electronics such as tablets or smartphones, a plug adapter may only be needed as the voltage could automatically adjust.
The main spoken language in Australia is English. As well, Australia has many multicultural nations, including the world’s oldest nations.
