Dear Traveller

Welcome to the October Edition of the

Really Useful Travel Tips Ezine.

This month's edition focuses on the best getaways for Spring. But as usual there are travel tips and useful updates.

This Months Travel Tips - Tips for Beating Jet Lag



  • Get lots of sleep before you leave - getting there exhausted will not help your jetlag believe it or not.
  • Do something energetic before you get to the airport e.g. a gym work out or a run as this will help you feel tired on the plane.
  • Cut down on caffeine and alcohol and increase your intake of water to stay hydrated
  • Wear flight socks as they have been proven to increase your circulation AND energy and alertness.
  • Go for a brisk walk when you get to your destination as this will keep you awake for longer.
  • For long haul flights to Australia, choose a flight that lands in the evening as this will avoid you having to stay up all day to fight the jet lag.


  • The Best Spring Getaways

  • October is a great month for a Spring getaway. The clocks have changed so we can all take advantage of the evening sun and the temperature is starting to rise. So before it gets to the silly season of Christmas parties, where are the best spring getaways?
  • Darwin and the top end October marks the last month to take advantage of tropical Australia before the wet season starts. So if you fancy exploring the delights of Darwin or Kakadu National Park then now could be a good time.
  • Similarly The Kimberleys and Broome would be a good choice before the end of October. From Broome Australia you could visit Cape Leveque or some beautiful gorges and scenery on the way to the Bungle Bungles rock formation.
  • If you'd rather stay on the East Coast then head to The Gold Coast or Noosa where the temperatures should allow some early season sunbathing and swimming. Click here for Gold Coast Holidays or Noosa Australia.
  • Another great option would be Margaret River in Western Australia. The weather would be hotting up so you can take advantage of the beaches as well as those fabulous wineries. Margaret River


  • What's happening on the Real Australia Travel Website

    This month we've expanded our Australian Road Trips Section giving you some information on some more East Coast Road Trips.

    Check out Australia Road Trips for more details.

    More pages on Western Australia travel have been added too. Most holidays focus on the East Coast of Australia but the West is equally inviting and less touristy. Have a look and get some inspiration for your next trip.
