We've been asked to join some friends at Margaret River for a short holiday (just under a week) in November. We've only visited the east coast in the past (Daintree, Port Douglas, Fraser Island, Sydney); obviously we found the Great Barrier Reef spectacular, but one of our other favourites was Fraser Island.
We like nature, wildlife, beaches (if we can get into the water) in the countryside, and in cities we like museums and historical buildings. Margaret River seems to be pretty, with great…
We are staying in Melbourne CBD for a short time and have a day to spare. We would like to hire a car for just one day and drive to the Dandenongs and visit small towns and mountains views. We would like to hire a car out of the Melbourne CBD by travelling on public transport to pick up the car and return to the same location.We have looked at tours but as we are not interested in wineries and wildlife tours(these seem the only ones available). Can someone please suggest a outer suburb car hire…
I want to plan a month in Australia, but due to work I will have time only in May.
If I plan on doing the east coast, is it "worth" going in May (weather wise I mean)?.
My aunt wanted to visit Perth next year and she was asking me when was the best time to travel- February or July (currently, those are the only months she's free). I just recently moved to Australia, particularly Gold Coast, and have never been to Perth. I've heard that WA is slightly hotter than Gold Coast- if that's the case, I was thinking July would be a better option. Am I right? Or is the rain harsh during that time and would hinder my aunt from enjoying her holiday?
Also, what would…
Hi Guys, im sending my parents down to Melbourne on a surprise trip and need to find a cheuffer to pick them up from the airport to their hotel and then again to a show that ive got them tickets for. There is no way they can cope with hiring a car in such a big city or even catching public transport would be stressful for them so I wanted to make the trip as easy as possible. Does anyone have any recommendations for a cheuffer that is reasonably priced? Thank you.

we are planing our first trip to Australia for this christmas. We have several doubts about the itinerary (Gold coast or Melbourne-Sydney-Brisbane) and how to move/sleep in Australia (bus, rental car+hotel/airbnb or camper). We want to take it easy and spend time in the places where the kids feel confort and happy (love beach and nature).
We are not ambicious to cover too many things/places, just want to find the right ones.
Your great recommendations will be highly appreciate.
I am going to Australia on a WHV in January 2016 and was wondering if anyone had experience with travelling from the UK? how much money you spent etc? I am going with my boyfriend and we are looking to start in Melbourne for a week or two then head over to Adelaide to go to kangaroo island and then hopefully find some farm work. I also want to do cairns and travel the east coast when we have a bit more money from farm work and hop to different farms along the way to earn more money!
Hy, there is much info about this topic but I seem te get rather confused.
We, 'n elderly couple, are looking for a place to go snorkling. We will travel with a camper from Cairns down to Sydney, in november. We are NOT in for party-places; prefer the more quiet places.
But we like to go on a 100% snorkling-daytrip (no diving) but get confused with the many suggestions.
I read that the reef in Cairns is rather grey but quite close, Airley Beach is nice but the reef futher away. and so on.
Planning on going to Tasmania over my Christmas Holidays. Planning on renting a car, and have mapped out an itinerary for myself, but wanted to ask you knowledgable people who have been to Tasmania if this type of itinerary is do-able and would be worth the while.
Main purpose of visiting Tasmania is to enjoy nature, beaches and take lots of photos. Below is what I'm hoping to do.
Day 1. Arrive Hobart early afternoon, drive to Freycinet
Day 2. Freycinet (hiking)
