There are 3 ways to reach Australia first is by air. Nobody is allowed here without a visa. Those who live in New Zealand can enter into Australia simply though with visas issued upon entrance. Most international flights land in Sydney. Secondly, you can come here by land. Get on the bus from London to Singapore with Ozbus and then fly while the bus is shipped over. Know that if you then intend to drive in Australia the distances can be anything from 10 to 50 hours varying on which cities you want to travel between. Another way is obviously by sea. There are many cruises from Australia with Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and the Holland America Line.
Transportation system in Australia is very good. There are public and private transportations. Public transportation includes buses, trams and trains. Bus travel is the most common way because they go almost all over and many bus tickets allow you to get on and get off on any route that if that is your destination. There is a complete network of bus routes on the more heavily travelled routes between Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney and up the east coast to Cairns making it a low-cost way to get around. Once you start to head west from Adelaide there are fewer options and towns are way more far ahead. Scheduled buses are usually economical and run more regularly. Sydney adopted steam trams in the 1860s, which were operated by the state government and Melbourne adopted cable trams, which were owned by the local government but functioned originally by a private company.
The most livable city in the world, Melbourne has the biggest tram network in the world and its trams have become part of the city’s culture and distinctiveness due to their long history and now there are more than 500 trams in the city. Tram lines and companies worked in numerous towns of Western Australia. They were mainly for coal and timber and also for public services. Trams operated in the cities and towns of Leonora, Fremantle, Perth and Kalgoorlie.
For trains, you can buy ticket online. They have the name listed and you can choose the one you want like Australind, AvonLink, The Ghan, Gulflander, Indian Pacific, XPLORER, XPT etc. You can see the route because they have a map and even if the website do not have a map you know where you want to go and from where in Australia. For traveling by train, one should know that it is divided into 7 regions. Trans Australia is from Darwin to Adelaide or from Perth to Sydney.

You can also buy or rent a car for daily use or for traveling. Having a car is not an inexpensive way. Traveling by bus or trams or trains has its advantages because when many people are traveling all together, the roads are less congested. Less car means less pollution and public transport do not cost much. The environment is not polluted that much. Taxis are also there. To drive, you need to be over 18 and have a local license if you are staying less than 6 months and Australia’s license or international if you are staying more than that.
It is not a difficult task to drive there. Most travelled routes are Melbourne-Sydney and Sunshine Coast-Brisbane-Gold Coast. You can also buy a plane ticket and fly from one place to another such as: New South Wales, Melbourne and Sydney. No matter how they are travelling in Australia people should always be careful and prevent any injuries or accidents.
