    Survivor guide: Travelling Queensland coast Australia


    Visiting Queensland coast Australia can be one of the most exciting and thrilling holidays anyone could want. A real once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

    However, anyone who is planning on undertaking such a trip must have their wits about them and be aware of a number of things to ensure they don’t suffer a road accident or slip, trip and fall that might ruin the adventure.

    So before you pack your bags and head off on this once in a lifetime adventure here are a few things you need to know.

    They drive on the left in Australia

    If you are hiring a car when travelling across Australia it’s worth remembering that, like the UK, they drive on the left of the road. Something vital when it comes to avoiding road traffic accidents.

    Australia uses the metric system

    Rather like many European countries Australia uses the metric system for weights and measurements. So when it comes to distances and speed limits you need to take this into consideration.

    You need to be aware of sharks when swimming

    The waters on Australia’s Queensland coast might look inviting, but you need to be aware of what lurks underneath. Take heed of warnings from the local coastguard before taking a dip.

    Protect yourself from the sun

    This part of the country can see some extremely high temperatures in the summer. So to avoid sun stroke, make sure you keep your head covered and use sun screen.

    Take care when hiking

    Queensland offers hikers some of the most exciting terrain to explore, that’s part of the excitement. However slips, trips and falls can ruin a holiday and be life threatening, so make sure you watch your step when walking or climbing.

    Have you been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault?
