1.MAKE SURE YOU DRIVE ON THE LEFT-HAND LANE.
If you are in the driver seat and the middle of the street is on your left, then you are driving the on wrong lane. Australia and New Zea Land still have the British way of driving on the left hand lane.
2.DO NOT HITCH-HIKE
If you do not know how to drive, find an alternative means of traveling,like- bus, train, plane apart from hitch-hiking. Mind you to hitch-hike is illegal and forbidden.You will be arrested and be prosecuted if you are found
3. DRESS ACCORDINGLY
You have to dress accordingly to the season and region you are visiting. Wear waterproof coat if visiting New Zea land during cold- season(winter). Wear thick soled and long boots when walking around the Australian bush and high grass.You may end up in hospital or even worst if you did not know how to dress according to the season.
4.BE MINDFUL OF WEATHER AND ANIMALS
You dressing accordingly will help protect you from nature and dangerous animals like crocodiles, snakes, spiders, sharks and other poisonous biting creatures which Australia is known well know for.Respect warning signs and watch your movement if do not want to get injured.
5. WINTER IS REVERSED TO SUMMER.
The seasons are not what you may be known and used to,from November to April you can swim and from July to August it use to sky in New Zea Land. Try to use sun lock lotion during summer to avoid getting sunstroke.
6.MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS HAVE WATER WITH YOU.
The most important advise I will give you is never forget to carry enough water with you to avoid dehydration. You can have for instance two litres for about an hour journey depending on the distance you are traveling
7. HAVE ENOUGH SAVINGS
If you are going from Australia to New Zea land you require a visa. so do not spend all your money while there. You have to pay about 40 Australian dollars tax while leaving Australia, and about 35 New Zea land dollars leavingNew Zea land.
