Hello, in the middle of August we (middle-aged couple) plan to visit Australia and to travel by car on the route along the coast from Melbourne to Brisbane. We have 6-7days. I would be grateful for any piece of advice like: what is worth visiting (besides the cities - we have extra time to visit Mel. Syd., Bris.), where should we stay overnight, or simply if the plan is real. Any tips on car rental, insurance, etc. welcome.
I am thinking of doing a road trip from Perth to Broome over Xmas this year. However I would like to hear first hand experience of how WET the wet season in Broome is likely to be at that time of year.
All help greatly appreciated.
Our Canadian family of four (kids ages 9 & 7) will be spending 5 months in Oz from mid-Octoberto mid-March. We will start in Cairns and work our way down east coast. Hubby & I are PADI certified divers and want to do a couple dives (prefer non-bleached areas & hubby wants to get night diving certification). Kids are keen swimmers and want to hit good snorkeling areas with them. Open to multi-day trip to get us out to "better" areas if that helps? Likely we'd want to do this in November or early…
Heya I'm visiting from Sydney and looking for travel buddies for a road trip from Darwin to Kakadu ~I'd especially love to go to Jim Jim and Twin Falls.
If anyone is already going and wants one more person for the petrol $ and company then I'm your lass!
Available any days from Monday 17 July to Sat 22 July
I'm from England and have recently moved to Melbourne, I will be staying here for 6 months before travelling. If anybody wants to hang out, maybe grab a few drinks or go on a road trip drop me a message :-)
I recently entered Sydney on a student e-visa using a non-biometric Indian passport. I was not stamped by the immigration officer, upon my asking she said that there is no need. Can I get a departure stamp when I leave Australia? I may need proof of travel for the future.
Secondly, maybe I'm being paranoid, but when I was clearing customs and was directed by the customs agent to a certain counter, I thought I was following the path to the counter but happened to just exit the customs…
I am looking for the name of good quality restaurants you would recommend based on memorable past experience.
Experience has taught me to do a little research before my visit especially regarding where to eat.
I am pretending to go for a 6 months exchange program in a australian high school. But i am having a really hard time to decide wich city is the best for me. I love the beachs vibes and warm weather, but I also considerer myself the kind of person is the smart, open mindend and kind of cult type. I am really in a ballance between the relaxed/beach/party and the smart/hipster thing. So, I spend a lot of time thing about Melbourne, but I thing the city is much more an european vibe. Sydney seems…
I have been several times in Australia with my friend. We are getting older and we don't want to sleep in dorms anymore.
Most hostels have 2 persons rooms but often very expensive.
I think about taking a tent with us, and staying at holiday parks. Or maybe in a caravan on a park. I have never seen a campsite in Australia. How is it staying there in a tent? The “party people” do they also stay in tents in such holiday parks? I am not against these people, but I want to have a good sleep at night.
I'm arriving in Darwin on July 26 and need to make my way down to Brisbane, but have no timeline. Looking to explore the west coast, and possibly Alice Springs. Anyone heading that direction in a car/van and would like a travel buddy? I'm can drive (automatic only) and definitely willing to pitch in for fuel!
