Hello Everyone!
I'm planning my first road trip to Australia. We have 40 days and I decide to spend 10 days in Western Australia, 15 days in the center (Melbourne to Alice springs) and 10 days in Queensland (from Cairns to Brisbane) and few days in Sydney.
We arrive in Melbourne on 28th December and our first part of the holiday will be a road trip from Melboune to Alice Springs. My idea is to do camping to save a little bit of money! So we need to rent a campervan or a equipped car!
My dream is…

Hi,

2 of us have flight into Sydney on Aug 13th morning and leaving Brisbane on Aug 19th @6pm. Current plans is to stay in Sydney for 2 nights and rent a car to drive to Brisbane. I'm coming back to Sydney again Sept-Oct, hence the reason for such short time in Sydney.

Question is, where should we stop on the way to Brisbane?

13th - arrive Sydney, Pylon Lookout, Paddington/Rocks market
14th - Ferry, Bondi to…

Hi,
I'm currently planning my working holiday in australia but I'm quite unsure where I should start my journey.
My arguments for the respective side(west/east) are:

West:
+ less popular
+ still a big city -> should satisfy all needs
+ higher chance for mining jobs
- everything else > 1000km (or is the road trip worth it?)
East:
+ more tightly packed
+ more same minded people
+ warmer(Jul-Aug)
- more dangerous jellyfish

But these arguments are more or less unfounded and because this my first journey of…

Hi all,

I've found a car to hire on rental cars.com but they are charging £80 or $132 as a young driver fee as I'm 22 years old. And then on top of that a further £180 or $300 as a one way fee.

Does anyone know of any companies that don't add on these fees please? I've planned my whole GOR trip around hiring this car but I don't want to pay that money. The car only cost £140 for a weeks hire.
