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.

Hello everybody,
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.

Hi Guys,

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.
So…

Hi Everyone,

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)
Day 3…

I've been told they can still have travel insurance but it wont cover costs for preexisting mental health.

But a previous poster of a locked thread said seemed to say that some companies do cover travel insurance with mental health issues. Is that true and what would they cover.

Anyone intending to buy a rail pass to catch long-distance trains in Australia should be aware that Great Southern Rail, now owned by Allegro, will be discontinuing their Explorer pass next week. This pass, available only to foreigners, represents fantastic value: with it, you can travel an unlimited number of times on the Ghan, the Indian Pacific and the Overland for two or three months. At USD 349, it costs less than a single Sydney-Perth ticket in second (Red) class.

Explorer passes will…

Looking for input - I'm having trouble settling an itinerary and method of travel for a road trip from Perth, up north as far as Broome. We will be traveling in March of 2016, with our toddler, so unfortunately this means any camper/van/ute is pretty much out of the question, as it must be able to have a kiddie seat installed. So if this means campervan is out, maybe we do camping/hostel/hotel stays with just a 4wd hired in Perth? We do want to do some NPs where there are unsealed roads…

nary a peep

unlike most enlighten countries Australia govt taxes female, hygien products. as a bonus starting in 2017 ALL goods and services purchased overseas will have the gst applied. ? this so treasury buds get to travel the world at aussie taxpayers expense to check out companys for tax purposes. socialism running rampant. that means should you purchase inter country travel outside australia, your liable for aussie gst tax as well. upon arrival back.not reporting it constitutes tax evasion.
