What to Do When You Arrive in Australia

Post by Pepper » Sat Mar 19, 2016 1:39 pm

When you arrive in Australia it is good to have a list to refer to once you get off the plane. So I will get things started and let's put together our ideas and add to the list as we think of things... 8-)


Check into some accommodation and unwind at the hotel or place you will stay.

Activate bank account

Explore some walks and photo opportunities

Look for more long-term rented accommodation

Ensure that your arrival documentation is in order

contact loved ones back home to let them know you arrived safely

A trip to Manly on the ferry on a sunny day is what I always recommend to visitors to Sydney.

The first thing I do after any flying is to get to my hotel, have a long hot shower, relax then get a meal. After that it is usually organising everything for the new few days as I get to my chosen destination which would have all been worked out months before hand as I planned my trip from home.

You can't go wrong with going out to a decent restaurant, especially one with views of the waterfront or a beach.

Hi jacobcarl, It will depend on your budget and tastes as there are various options you could choose from. You would be able to select anything from an Indian restaurant in a mall food court like below Mayer in Pitt street Sydney or go across to the other side of the Westfield, up a few floors and you will have a high-end food court that offers restaurant quality cuisine in an upscale food court. There is also a similar one near the townhall station and many more similar places all around Sydney inner George street etc. You could also probably find more specific Indian restaurants like northern or southern styles etc. You might want to get in touch with some country folk on Facebook etc that are also traveling to get more insider info.

it depends on your budget, You could start with a backpackers hotel for about $30+ or here is a list of Sydney hotels listed on Agoda that show some options. I would say around $50 per day should be enough for a basic hotel but if you have thousands to spend per night then that is possible to.
