Newbie

I'm new here. I don't live in Austrialia, but I just watched Quigley Down Under, and I was wondering how accurate that movie is (I know it's portraying the 1800s) with regards to how the Aboriginees live now? This probably looks like the dumbest question in the world, but I just thought I'd ask.

Welcome to the forum yummy and haven't seen the movie but I'd reckon indigenous peoples of most countries live a fair bit different to what it was like in 1800s, and here for instance whereas 1800s would have seen most still living in tribal ways, the aboriginnes being a nomadic race, now how they live is varied from being city dwellers, living in smaller towns and in quite a few locations there are indigenous lands and settlements, the numbers of people varying quite significantly.
And then you have some that work on cattle stations and in some cases have set up their own enterprises based on tourism and rural activities.

Well, most travelling has considerable expense to it though there are different styles and cost savings.

First step is some planning, what type of visa, just tourist or are you eligible for a Working Holiday Visa and then depending on how much time and money you'll likely have, where in Australia, tropical north, gradually becoming more temperate as you move south down the east coast or the dry inland and west.

Have a read of some of the info in Travel questions section as quite a few queries and responses there that'll inform you a fair bit and of different travelling means/styles.
