When you go to the small town or national parks during Australia vacation packages, please take enough cash with you.
Do I need to tip in Australia?
It is not customary to tip in Australia. However, if you are satisfied with service offered, the tipping is highly appreciated to the tour guides and drivers. For the restaurant staff and taxi drivers, you could leave the spare change for them as the tip.
Can I drink the tap water in Australia?
Sure, the tap water is safe to drink in Australia, unless there is a notice not to drink. So you can take a refillable water bottle with you instead of buying bottled water.
Can I use my mobile phone during Australia tours?
Yes, please just be sure your global roaming is activated before your tour. Or you can buy a local sim card in Australia. There are three sim card operators - Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. You are advised to buy a Telstra sim card, for it offers the best network coverage in the country.
