Hey,

I know this is probably the umpteenth post you have seen about what people should bring, but I am really struggling.

I am due to come to Sydney in July on a one year working visa.

What I know...
* Australian winters are nothing like they are in Scotland, so I know I don't need things like thermals or a thick winter jacket, but I suppose a normal jacket would be suffice, yes?
* Maybe it would be an easier question, what should I not bring?
* Where is the best place to buy walking/hiking…

I think I suffer from an incurable disease.

It is one of those where your doctor cannot help, no medicine will assist and good advice is almost impossible to find. I can choose to romanticize the subject and call my disease wanderlust, but that wouldn’t fully describe or do justice to my condition.

I have been traveling my whole life.

I have worn hijabs in the back alleys of Oman, I have walked the jungles of Borneo, seen the temples of India and visited every country in Asia. I have climbed…

Hi all,

I have an overnight layover at Brisbane airport. Just wondering if anyone can recommend an affordable hotel option near the airport?

Most hostels/guesthouses seem to be in town, ideally - I would like to stay near the airport to save time in the morning.

Any tips would be great! Thanks

We are planing a trip to Australia in November this year.
Our plan so far is drive from Sydney to Melbourne (about 2 weeks), then go to Carins for 2 more weeks. Then end i Sydney.
We would love to go snorkling (none of us is divers) and se the Graet Barrier Reef. But we have read about the jellyfish. Is it possible to snorkel in November? Where is it best? We could move from Carins if that is necessary.
Is there a live-aboard for snorkling that's not super-expensive?

Hope for help :-)
Kristina

Hey, I've just applied for my 1-year working holiday visa, aged 30 and am applying for a job with a 457 on arrival.

I'm planning to spend at least a couple of years around Sydney, I'll see how I feel about staying longer.

I'm putting my flat on the market to rent and have slimmed down my wardrobe by 80%, so I can fit everything into one suitcase. I'm a session musician outside work, so am taking one of my guitars with me, as I play every day. I may bring another over when I first visit home…
