What would be the best website to get a tourist visa to travel into Australia.

For Canadians going for tourist purposes?

I (a canadian) didn`t need a visa when I travelled throughout Australia for 30 days in 2005. This must be new?

Anyway, try this:

Hi there!

I travelled for 8 weeks throughout Australia about 5 years ago and I didn't need a tourist visa. I filled out a tourist card on the plane. I think it might be different if you intend on working there. Then you would need a work visa or a student visa. (Check with SWAP student workers abroad program).

If you booked through GAP, you might want to read the trip details document that is available online and that they sent to you. That information might be indicated there.

You could also call the GAP rep. They seem very knowledgable and helpful.

Have a great trip. Australia delivers all that it promises and more!

It's the journey, not the destination.
