Two months of travelling​ AUSTRALIA - my route

Due to the fact that I am volunteering at a school I have two months holidays from 29th November to 25th January , that means I can take the time to travel around.

I´ve booked a Greyhound hop on hop off bus ticket for 60 days (Whimit pass) including 15 nights at YHA hostels. I think it is the best way to travel and see as much as I can in these two months. The Greyhound bus offers free WiFi, chargers, a bathroom and air condition, so it’s a quite comfy way of travelling. The ticket makes it possible to change or cancel your connections as often as you want. You just need your booking number to reserve seats in the Greyhound bus. Also the YHA accommodations are easy to reserve on the website. My recommendation is to book in advance and plan your trip, but if you want to be flexible you can also reserve seats and accommodations just some days before your stay.
