Australia

Dogs says: Over a long life I have travelled and lived in a number of countries. Something I found was that a lot of the people I met had not travelled, very comprehensively, in their 'home' country. I think it is a thing that you feel you will do when you have had exhausted your 'travelling legs and cash' and that you figure you can always see 'home' when you have settled down and got these other urges out of your system :) It's not a bad thing either, travelling overseas when young (and impressionable) because when you do come 'home' and you will, you will REALLY appreciate it !!

Mazzs1 says: I am also on a disability pension & I travel intrastate and interstate several times a year. You have to learn to prioritize better if you want to travel. I would go nuts if I couldn't get my R&R. I am very lucky to have lots of family & friends so I don't have accomodation costs, but when you can get $39 fares to QLD from Melbourne it really helps.
If you travel to TAS on the Spirit you can get pension discount on your berth.
Tavel by train either intrastate or interstate you can use your free travel that the government gives you with your pension card renewal annually, so if you were going to Sydney you could use your free travel to Albury & then pensioner discounted ticket from Albury to Sydney.
So there are ways and means. Reply

peoples make you realise that Australia is not the centre of the universe. Dont get me wrong I love Australia but we do tend to be
very tunnel visioned.. We do have unique animals and scenery , but then so do other countries. and so I say go and see them
for yourselves you will never regret it. After your trip and you are back here you will love Australia more and have a much better sense of where we stand in the world. Reply

Experiencing different cultures and languages is an experience not to be missed and in alot of cases it does make you appreciate what we have in Australia - the quality of our education and health systems and accesabilty of them to all Australians. Our freedom and rights and the opportunity to improve ourseleves and make a difference.

marz says: I agree with you to a degree. Most Australians do know their own country fairly well, our history and culture. I believe that a lot of people travel overseas to experience the different cultures around the world. It is such a vast and huge array of nationalities and countries out there and it is fantastic to experience it. I have done various road trips around Australia with my husband and children and the only state we haven't visited so far is Tasmania. My daughter has managed to do that on her own though. My husband and I have also been to Thailand, Hawaii, road trip across the USA with relatives, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Latvia. We intend to spend a couple of weeks later this year in New Zealand. It was a wonderful experience to travel overseas and to see where my family came from and some still live. I have became very proud of my heritage really only after travelling overseas. Though I am an Australian through and through, born and raised here. I believe Australia is a very unique country and has a lot to offer the tourist from overseas. I just love our outback, their is nothing like it. Reply

A few years ago my now husband & I (before kids) travelled O/S, and believe it was enhanced by my ability to contrast my O/S experiences with those from Australia. These days its cheaper to travel domestically, particuarly now we have 2 children, and I'd like them to grow up with an apprecitation of the country they were born in. Reply

Ziah says: We're travelling overseas now, while we are young enough to be able to go all the places and do all the things we want to do. Then we can see more of Australia when we are too old to be climbing the Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building or hiking the Grand Canyon, or kayaking the Colorado River, or Skiing in Aspen, or riding the rollercoasters at every Disney or Six Flags park in the world or anything else we have done/will do. Touring Australia is something to be done leisurely, over many weeks or months, to truly enjoy what it means to be Australian. It is not something to be hurried or crammed into the only holiday time we can get right now. Touring Australia is not fitting in ten cities in ten days, or seeing how far you can get on a Berocca - it's slowing down, watching the sunset and sunrise at the same beach, or dropping a line in and not caring if you catch anything, or snorkelling over the Great Barrier Reef every day for a week, or riding a horse along a deserted beach, or climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, or taking a coupe of weeks to drive the Great Ocean Drive, or across the Nullarbor, or taking the Ghan or the Indian Pacific, or hiking through Kakadu or game fishing off Exmouth, or any number of beautiful adventures that require far more time than work will permit right now. Australia is for when we have time to appreciate it. That's why overseas adventures tend to come first, and Australia later in life. Reply

I surprised my Mum with a trip to NZ, the land of her birth, as soon as I became employed and could save, then visited friends in PNG around the same age, but over several decades I've managed to visit all states in Australia and lived on the extreme boundaries of east, north and west for periods.

My first passport was acquired at age 57, when I finally headed for Ireland via Thailand and U.K. What an astonishing feeling to stand in London for the first time, an Aussie alone on the far side of the globe ! I fully appreciated the experience later in life and was able to share the wonders of my own country with the many people I met who are keen to come here from the perspective of one who has explored for myself.

I certainly find that many folk everywhere have never discovered their own homeland, which I think is sad. I believe that wherever I now travel, or here at home, I am a great ambassador for this wonderful Land Downunda ! Reply

super88 says: I know some people who haven't travelled beyond their home state, and others that travel to the same destination within Australia every time they have a holiday.

I don't see any reason to criticise them for that, although it isn't what I would choose.
When I talk to them of sleeping in a donga, or of the view from the cliffs above the bight,or places like Kalgoorlie, I might as well be talking about Mars. They will never experience these things(probably they don't want to) yet they are uniquely Australian.

It is said, travel broadens the mind. I think it allows you to see other lifestyles and with a bit of luck a different point of view. I suppose it depends how far out of your comfort zone you are prepared to go.

Some people enjoy camping and caravans, nothing wrong with that , but it's not my personal favourite.

I don't think it is necessary to travel all over Australia before going overseas. Or that it is necessary to travel at all, if you don't want to.

We chose NZ then as I realised the extra distance would be more difficult for my aging Mother then. A family friend had to go to Darwin from Adelaide for a conference which was work related (his business). It was cheaper for him to fly to Bali, stay overnight in a Motel, and fly down to Darwin the next day than it was to just fly from Adelaide to Darwin. It is still a topic discussed to this day.
