How long do we need in Australia?

Are you planning a trip to Australia with your partner and wondering how long you need? Let's dive into what makes an Aussie adventure unforgettable and figure out just how much time you should set aside to soak in all that Australia has to offer.

We often get asked what is the perfect amount of time to visit Australia - and to that, we reply - how long do you have? And what would you like to see and do?

Travelling to Australia the TravelEssence way means exploring the country at a relaxed pace, spending a couple of days in each location, seeing each destination through the eyes of the locals, and having the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in each place you visit.

With so many unique regions and destinations, each with its own charm and characteristics, we promote holidays where you uncover hidden treasures, meet the locals, and explore attractions away from the mainstream.

So, if you'd like to find out the ideal length of time to visit this astonishing country, read on!

Two to three weeks

Yes, that's right - you can visit Australia for two to three weeks and have a really good time. Travelling at a relaxed pace, you will easily visit and fully immerse yourself in a couple of regions - as the key here is to spend less time driving and more time discovering Australia.

For a two—to three-week holiday, we would definitely recommend a visit to North Queensland and the route between Melbourne and Adelaide - it just so happens to be one of our favourites, too!

Both locations are a short driving distance from each other, and they are both brimming with loads of attractions, natural beauty, and hidden gems just waiting to be explored - the perfect romantic getaway.

Three to five weeks

Three to five weeks is ideal, and it will give you both the opportunity to stay in each location between two and five nights and check out regions a bit further afield. This will allow you both to truly absorb the country and soak up the ‘no worries’ Aussie mentality.

If you both dream of visiting a few regions of Australia, such as Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania, or even Western Australia, we recommend flying internally.

This way, you will make the most out of your time Down Under - experience more of Australia's diversity and see more of its unique landscapes.
