Just because you know the language does not mean you are save from tourist traps. They exist in the similar way for tourists from the same country.

+1 for talking with the stuff in your hotel/hostel. They usually speak some English and know about 'local' places. Just make sure you tell them exactly what you want. Often they get commission for sending people to a restaurant or tour agency, so be careful.

comment Direction to go to Australia — where does it change?
Anywhere in Australia is closer going East from Europe, the extra distance between Perth and Sydney is still much smaller than going over the Atlantic and Pacific.
