Aboriginal festival hits Queensland
But for those of us who prefer something a little different while staying at hostels down under, the next few weeks could be good time to take a trip.
That's because Laura, which is in Queensland, is hosting its biennial Aboriginal Dance Festival.
It kicks off on June 19th and you can see all sort of traditional dances and songs - even displays of hunting weapons!
According to Jeremy Geia, who is director of the festival, up to 5,000 people look set to attend this year.
So if you're planning some backpacker travel in the area, be sure to have a look for hostels nearby because this could be a great opportunity to learn about the unique culture of this impressive country.
If you're around a bit later you might want to check out the Camel Cup in Alice Springs on July 11th - which is exactly what it sounds like: camel racing!
