Destination Canada offers travel tips for Australian visitors


You might have been ignoring Canada for all of your life because you prefer more exotic Asian and South American countries or more culturally rich European places. Well, the truth is Canada has so many things to offer! There are more attractions other than the famous and popular Niagara Falls, Toronto’s CN Tower, the Rocky Mountains, and Banff National Park.

The number of Australian visitors to Canada has been growing each year at a rapid rate. Considering this trend, Destination Canada, the government agency to promote tourism in the country, suggested some tips to the Aussie travellers.

  • Every Australian national needs an electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA) for travelling to Canada. Some scam websites use this opportunity to befool people and charge as much as USD$122 for the application fee. You have to register for the eTA through the official website and it costs only $7 CAD.
  • Everything costs more when you travel Canada during the peak months – July and August. However, the country is beautiful in other seasons too. Choose the off-peak seasons for avoiding crowds and paying extra money.
  • Visiting the Maritime province of New Brunswick will provide the visitors with some incredible experiences. You will get to watch the highest tide in the world, abseil down cliffs, walk the ocean floor, and more.
  • The road trippers will be glad to know that they can now drive the 137-kilometre Tuktoyaktuk Winter Road, made celebrated by the TV series Ice Road Truckers.

  • Thrill-seekers can try the EdgeWalk at the CN Tower. Buckled with harnesses, you will be standing at the edge of the exposed top of the Tower. It holds the Guinness World Record for the “Highest External Walk on a Building”.
