Travelling in Australia all depends on where you want to go. Transport is excellent in Australia and most places are fairly easy to get to. There are buses, cars, trains, trams and boats to get to where ever you need to go. The ticket prices are reasonable in Australia and public transport is reasonable comfortable and easy to travel on. If you want to really experience the variations of scenery within the country, take an outback train, or the car. The most popular form of transportation in Australia is the car. Gas - known in Australia as petrol (or diesel/distillate) - can be pretty expensive though, depending on the world price of oil. Petrol and diesel are more expensive away from the major cities, due to high costs of transportation.
