Its land area is greater than that of the EU, yet it has only 20.5 million inhabitants, of whom 92% also in the major cities in the southeast, in Perth and Tasmania live.

From Germany and Switzerland there are three basic ways to Australia. Either via a stopover in Asia (Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.), the Arabian Peninsula (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha) or North America. Careful selection of the route can reduce the flight time, but are less than 22 hours of travel time will not. Stopovers are offered by almost all airlines and are a great way to make the arrival and departure enjoyable.

Because of the often lengthy entry procedures should avoid tight connecting flight.

Thank the British, is also in Australia tea very much appreciated. It is always small teahouses (“Tea Houses”), which offers Devonshire tea and scones. A little anecdote: Burger King is represented in Australia though, doing business under the name Hungry Jack’s, however.

Only in the transit area of international airports may therefore be called Burger King Burger King …
Eating out: There are many restaurants do not license for the serving of alcohol is time to BYO. Bring Your Own, that the guests bring their own alcoholic beverages to (get first in bottle shop) and pay a small corkage fee to the waiter. The fluctuation in the catering trade is very high and it is best to ask on the spot in the hostel / hotel for recommendations.
It is very conveniently located in Australia known as hostels for backpackers to stay. Some of them are affiliated to the International Youth Hostel Federation (who has a membership card from DJH gets into these hostels even give discounts). Australia is set to the super backpacking. So if you have any high expectations and be happy people want to know different nationalities and ages, is in a hostel in good hands. Anyone with a tent or camper on the road, found throughout Australia and good clean tent sites and caravan parks at reasonable prices, often even less expensive than hotels. Most places have a community kitchen, called Camp Kitchen, always covered, but mostly outdoors. If you want to also use tent sites without their own tent or camper can almost rent on each campsite called cabins or onsite vans. Both come with their own kitchen, including cooking utensils and dishes equipped. Therefore suitable for backpackers with a private car. I highly recommend the Big4 camping chain .
