Where to go?

 Due to the request we received, here is the first travel tip post. Would you like to visit Australia but are not sure where you want to go? Well, Australia is a big place, and there are lots of different things to do. It really depends on what you like doing. What's your favorite holiday style? Do you like shopping? Eating? Sightseeing? Nature? Relaxing on the beach? That is going to have a big impact on where you should go.
But if it's your first time to Oz you might want to think about Cairns. Not super confident with your English yet? Don't worry lots of the places in Cairns have Japanese speaking staff, instructions and menus. Also as it is in the far north of Oz your flight time from Japan will be shorter than the other cities further south.
As it is tropical, you can travel almost anytime of the year and the weather will be hot and sunny. But you might want to avoid the wet season, which is unfortunately also summer (don't forget that is winter in Japan) but even bad weather shouldn't last too long. What can you do there? Well it's the perfect spot for diving, hiking and seeing the nature that Australia is so famous for. Want to go to the beach one day and see koalas and kangaroos the next? Then Cairns is the place for you.


  1. Wow! This is an almost brochure for Cairns tour. It made me want to go there. Thanks, Phil. By the way, What is located in west side of Australia? There are famous cities in east side, right? Cairns, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide... The west is still undeveloped area?

  2. That's a great question Masa. So good I'm going to make a whole post about it. Thanks for the great idea!
