Quick destination guide


France is part of the Schengen Convention (with other European nations), Australian tourists do not require a visa if they intend to spend less than 90 days in "Schengen" areas and can move freely between countries. Learn More

When to go

Generally Spring (April to June) or Autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit France as you avoid French holidays (mid-July to the end of August) and other holiday periods such as Easter or February school ski break. Learn More


The standard of healthcare facilities in France is high and it is important to remember the costs of using public hospitals can be considerable depending on the treatment you receive. There is no reciprocal medical agreement between the two countries. Learn More

Packing List

Pack a small umbrella as a shower in Paris isn't uncommon and don't forget a power adaptor since France (and most of Europe) uses 2 round pins.
