This Months Travel Tips

Tips for staying Safe

  • Sign your passport and complete the emergency contact details
  • Leave your itinerary with a friend or family member so someone knows where you are.
  • Check your medical insurance so that you know what it covers and when it expires
  • Take precautions to avoid being a target of crime. Avoid conspicuous clothing, flashy jewelery and excessive amounts of cash.
  • Don't leave valuables on show in your vehicle and if you can avoid it, don't leave any valuables in it at all.


  • This Month's Events in Australia

  • April means its officially spring and there are plenty of Easter shows. Sydney's Easter Show at the Olympic Park showground is always extremely popular. It's full of rides, show bags and animals. Best to get the train from central Sydney and avoid the queues.

  • Master Pieces from Paris has been a popular exhibition at the National Museum in Canberra. Find out more about Post-Impressionist works by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul CÚzanne, Georges Seurat, Pierre Bonnard, Claude Monet, Maurice Denis, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and Edouard Vuillard
  • The Margaret River Region Wine Festival starts 8th April and finishes on the 12th. Expect the local wineries and restaurants to put on a fab show.
  • The Brisbane Open Air Cinema continues until the end of April showing a range or new and contemporary films
  • The Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs until the 18th April. There are plenty of great acts ready to make you laugh.
