I'm thinking of taking myself on a self-guided trek along the Larapinta.

I haven't done any real bushwalking before but I'm pretty fit 4x5km run and 2 weights sessions a week. I also knocked over a marathon a few years back so I can tough it out.

But I'm also a 54 year old woman with a limited sense of direction and I'll be on my lonesome.

How hard is it and would the experience be Wolf Creek scary?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone,

I am planning to go to Australia in april on a working holiday visa.
I want to do 88 days rural work so I can get my second year working visa.

I do have some questions.

  • In which area/city can I find fulltime rural jobs in april that pay well?
  • Is there enough rural work from april-juni/juli?

I prefer going to places with nice weather, where it is not to hot or to cold.
I also prefer to work in a farm/place where more then 1/2 backpackers work.

Does anyone have tips?

Been thinking about it for a while and I have decided I want to go to Australia when I finish university.

Il be 22 years old and finish uni on the 8th of May this year and il most likely be free until September. Could possibly have a year but most likely be looking for a grad job September time. Il be travelling solo.

I'm a bit undecided as to what I should do in terms of should I travel or go for a working visa.

After flights il probably have £3000 to do whatever or 5000 Australian dollars.

Thinking of doing the Gordon River cruise in April but not sure whether to do the full or half day trip. Do you see / do more on the full day cruise?
Also is it worth purchasing the dearer seats?

Has anyone of you guys ever booked with campervanfinder.com.au? If yes, how did you experience everything? They seem to have excellent language skills... so that conversation on needs is perfect...but how about everything after booking?

Hi, we are a couple (age 38 & 48 yrs) with 4 weeks travelling in Australia (arriving 26th March in Melbourne) and departing from Sydney on 23rd April). Our itinerary is pretty much sorted but we could do with some help deciding on a couple of things so we would love to hear your comments. We are fit and active and enjoy the outdoors and nature (except for leeches and mosquitoes!) as well as city sightseeing and nightlife. We will be doing things like snorkelling, hiking and sailing.

Has anyone…
