The first thing I would like to know, is if a person
want to visit you in Australia, What is necessary to
Of course the person needs to buy a ticket to
Tasmania. But before that, the person need to get a
Tourist Visa in one of the Australian representations
in your country. For countries which Australia has
agrrements, the person can apply online. Also the
person must have a passport valid for at least 6
months after he or she leaves Australia. If you want

By your Knowledge, which places your recommend for a
tourist who is coming to visit Australia for the first
Tasmania and Tasmania. Just kidding.. Tasmania is
fantastic with beautiful places and gorgeous
landscapes, but I also recommend in Sydney the Opera
House and the harbour bridge. Beaches such as Bondi
and Manly are nice and there are plenty of cultural
and recreational activities to do. Melbourne is also a
nice and multicultural city, full of restaurants,
nightclubs, museums and nearby there is the Great
South Road and the twelve Apostles, one of the most
beautiful places in the world. Perth, Adelaide,
Brisbane, Gold Coast are also nice cities, and of
course the great barrier reef is a must. If you want
something more cultural and native, don't miss Ayers
Rock, the Aboriginal sacred rock.
And Mr. Devil, for how long you recomend someone to
Forever! I was kidding again. I would say 30 days
would be nice, but I know many people don't have all
this time. Australia is very big and depending on the
places you want to see it is going to take many days.
Anyways, 15 days is Ok for two different cities, and
if you have only one week, I would say to choose one
city and stay there.
Which is the best time of the year? Weather etc...
Summer in Australia is from December to March and can
be very hot in the North parts of Australia and in the
Outback. The South, at this time is fresher. Winter,
from July to August is the opposite and the North gets
really good. Can be quite cold during winter. So,
anytime is a good time.
Mr. Devil, Travel Australia is safe?
it is. We heave a very low crime rate comparing with
other nations in the world. The Australian people are
friendly and always keen to help a traveller. There
are some places that may bring risks from natural
causes, such as crocodiles in the North part as well
as jellyfish, but there are signs everywhere telling
about. Just take your normal precautions and you will
What about accommodation Mr. Devil, Is it easy to
There are plenty of accommodation for all kind of
travellers, From backpacker Hostels to Luxury resorts,
Australia has all in almost all cities and tourist
destinations. You can book in advance but it is not
really necessary unless a very important event is
taking place during your stay.
People told me to fly from Sydney to Cairns if I want
to see the Great Barrier Reef. Can I go by car,
visiting places along the way?
course you can, and the trip is fantastic, but you
will need some time to cover the almost 3000 Km each
way. The best if you have 15 days, is to fly to cairns
and from there rent a car and deliver it back in
Sydney. But remember, you will need many days to enjoy
the trip. Also you can visit the Great Barrier Reef
from other towns along the way, not only Cairns. There
are some budget companies that sell only by the
Internet, and some times they put on great offers..
Tell me Mr. Devil how much I will spend on a trip to
is difficult to say because it will depend upon what
you have in mind for accommodation and tours, But just
to give an idea, I just did a 30 days trip up North
and I spent an average of A$ 110 a day for two people,
staying in a Caravan Park. I did two tours during this
time costing around A$ 200 each. You can make the same
time for less in a backpack hostel and having budget
meals every day. Let's say around A$ 70 per day. It is
difficult to spend less, but easy to spend more. For a
couple staying in a 3 stars hotels and eating out
every day I would say A$ 160 per day excluding tours.
Mr. Tasman Devil saw
a female of his specie and run behind. I strongly
believe that with this Mr. Devil, the Tasman Devil
never will be extinct.
