The 5 Best Places In Australia For Solo Travel

With friendly cities and stunning island reserves, Australia is home to numerous destinations that are ideal for solo travel.

  • Sydney

    Sydney is the first port of call for many a solo traveller which makes it an easy place to meet new people. It's also a great base for reaching some of Australia's most essential must-do solo experiences. That includes diving in the Great Barrier Reef, surfing at Bondi Beach, walking the Harbour bridge, and catching a show at the world's most famous opera house.

  • Perth

    Frequently voted Australia's friendliest city, Perth is great for solo travellers. It's one of the most isolated cities on earth - maybe it's the isolation that means locals welcome visitors with open arms, or maybe it's just the chilled out, bohemian vibe that Perth has built up over the decades - either way, it's a great place to visit alone.

  • Melbourne

    There is so much to do in trendy Melbourne that solo travellers certainly won't get bored. With plenty of solo-friendly accommodation options and a vibrant arts scene, it's easy to get stuck in.

  • Fraser Island

    One of many reasons why Fraser Island is a well-established stop on the backpacker trail is it is the world's biggest sand island. As a solo traveller, it's a great place to meet other people who are seeing this spectacular place for the first time too.

Top Tips For Solo Travel In Australia

Australia lends itself perfectly to solo travel, but you can always take extra steps to get the most from your trip and to stay safe.

  • Group tours

    Consider booking onto group tours for certain activities or for visits to remote areas. This is safer and will also help push you to try out things that you've never done before. This applies to a range of activities such as hiking in the bush, diving in the Great Barrier Reef, and visiting Uluru.

  • Plan your itinerary

    Solo travel can be more costly than travelling in a group, so try to book transport, accommodation and activities in advance to take advantage of discounted prices. Having a solid itinerary is also safer and means you can let people at home know where you are going to be each day.

  • Be open-minded

    Solo travel is a terrific opportunity to meet people you wouldn't normally encounter. Be open-minded and enjoy the chance to converse with everyone, from Australian locals to fellow travellers from around the world.
