Exploring Australia is fun – even more so when you do it the DIY way instead of letting a travel agency plan the trip itinerary for you. If you’re planning to take to the road alone and perch your flags along the route from Sydney to Canberra soon, here are a few useful tips you might want to check out as to make your adventure in the Land Down Under is a bit less stressful and a lot more interesting.

How to get there

If you prefer to travel by rail, you can hop on a train departing from Sydney’s Central Station to Canberra Railway Station in Kingston via the Southern Highlands, Goulburn, and Bungendore. If you opt for the train, expect to spend about 4.5 hours in transit, and book the ride in advance through the NSW Trainlink website.

In case you’re not a huge fan of trains, you can board a Sydney to Canberra bus or coach and cut time spent on the road. Before you cart your bags to the station, you should check ticket prices and departure agenda at different operators and pick the transport company and time slot that suit your trip agenda and budget best.

When to go to Iceland

There’s really no bad time to visit Iceland due to the abundant activities you can do all year long. But if you’re pining for the aurora borealis, it’s best to target November to February; however, you can see them anytime from September to April. The northern lights can be seen on a dark and clear night. In the summer months, and especially in July, 24 hrs of daylight will keep the northern lights away.

I prefer coming here in the winter. There’s something majestic and pure about landscapes covered in snow. If this is your first time coming to Iceland, I highly suggest the winter months. You can always come back in the summer for a different experience.

If you’re not keen of crowds, early to late fall and early spring might be good times to come. You’ll still be able to do summertime activities in early fall. In late fall, you can beat the crowds and can claim to be one of the first people to see the lights for that season. There’s still a chance to see the lights in early spring. The changing landscape might also offer candy for your eyes for days.

Iceland holds an annual Winter Light Festival every year during the first weekend in February, but double check just to make sure. Hallsgrimskirkja gets lit up on the first night and on the last night, city center will be in darkness for an hour so you can take some epic pictures of Leifur Ericksson among the milky way (if you’re lucky and the sky is clear).
