As 2018 starts its speedy march to the end of the year, it’s time to start thinking about 2019 and how you can make it the best year of travel and fun ever.
We know you’re busy planning what to wear to your work Christmas party, wondering why you didn’t buy Christmas at last year’s Boxing Day sales and dreaming of a 2019 full of travel wins, so we thought you might need a hand. And here it is, YHA’s Ultimate New Years Resolution Tips for Travellers.
This is the year!
The year you smash it out.
And what better way to show the world who’s boss than facing some fears?
You may feel a little nervous, question what you’re doing, even think of backing out, but we guarantee, you wont regret it.
Here’s a few heart racers to put on your list:
Out with the old and in with the new….you!
You can keep up your fitness goals while travelling you know?

We’re not talking Facebook here.
YHA hostels are ALL about new friendships. Share a room with strangers and you wont be strangers for long. Start cooking in the communal kitchens and see how long it takes for someone to ask what you’re cooking. And a sure fire way to add some potential lifelong friends to your tally, is to join in on some free YHA activities. Hostel dinners, walking tours, ping pong comps and pub nights are just some of the opportunities we give you to crack up a conversation and see where it leads.
Sustainability goals should definitely be on your list. They are on ours.
YHA takes sustainability seriously, from solar power, sustainable transport, comprehensive recycling, community assistance and water saving initiatives and loads more. Just another way you can feel good about choosing to stay at YHAs
Nothing will make you feel like you’re doing 2019 right more than a stay right…….in…….the wilderness.
Some very special properties where you can get your nature loving, bush walking, wildlife spotting self on are:
- Pittwater YHA – just an hour north of Sydney, but a universe away from the city madness. Hike, kayak, hammock and repeat
- Mt Lofty Cottage YHA – nestled within pristine bushland in the Adelaide Hills, surrounded by walking trails and home to countless kangaroos, koalas and echidnas
- Magnetic Island YHA – We’re talking stylish bush huts – on an island – in a Wildlife Park! Where else can you breakfast with koalas, hold snakes and crocs and then have some fun with a game of coconut bowls.
Saving for a house? Trying to fill your piggy bank for rainy day? Hoping to tick off that round-the-world trip in 2019?
You don’t need to stop travelling to make it all happen. In fact, travelling may well be the thing that reenergises and inspires you to meet those goals. Grab yourself an ePack – YHA speak for discounted multi night accommodation pack – and your accommodation will be sorted for a bunch of weekend getaways, a longer break, or maybe you could even just pack up and set sail*
