Travelling around NZ, would like to fly over to Australia and spend a week or two there to check out the great barrier reef and learn to surf. Does anyone know if theres a place where both can be done? Cairns would be ideal for the GBR but quick research suggests it’s a no-go for surfing. Cheers

Hi
Is it possible to buy and register a car while in Australia on tourist visa (so without residence permit and an address in Australia other than a hotel)?
Many thanks

So, Jetstar gave me a couple of $25 hotel vouchers for booking plane flights with them. Must be used within 14 days. So I booked a place to stay in May next year, as this is the next time I am going away.

I wonder who gets to keep my money between now and May.

Is it the hotel, or the Jetstar Hotel booking site?

Hi,

I've been searching for days around google (and the forums) and couldn't get any useful information for my situation. I'm a Malaysian who am currently studying in Osaka - Japan right now and am very interested to apply for the work and holiday visa to go to Australia. The problems is, the number of Malaysians who can be granted the W&HV is limited to only 100 people a year.

So I was wondering, since I am a student/sort of resident in Japan as I've stayed here for 3 years (total 4 years)…

Hi!

I'm Sophie, 25 & about to head out to Australia on a WHV. Arrive in Melbourne November 7th and as it's getting closer I am getting completely terrified and excited in equal measures! Never travelled alone before; I'm slightly overwhelmed at the thought of it but I know that so many people go out solo and I shouldn't worry about meeting people (right!!?)

Just have no idea about where to stay/how long for at first. My plan is to be in Melbourne for a few months at least, in order to get…

Hi,

My girlfriend and i are currently planning our trip to Oz. We land in Melbourne on the 8th December we will be making our way up north to Sydney to meet our friends for New Years. ANY TIPS? We want to rent a camper for 1 month/4 people to travel the coast from Cairns back down to Sydney ready for their flight back home. Could anyone point me in the right direction for camper vans that sleep 4 people.

Also is it just as wise to travel from Sydney to Cairns then fly back down?

If anyone…

HI all

I'm a student currently living in Sydney and I'm planning a trip to Byron Bay next month (about 20 Sep) and probably stay there for 3 nights

I have 4 options but I'm not sure which is the best
*Going by Greyhound from Sydney Central to Byron Bay
*Going by plane from Sydney to Ballina airport then take a bus
*Going by train from Sydney Central to Casino Station (North Coast NSW Line)
*Hitch-hike (I found a website called http://www.coseats.com/ which I think could be a good option)

THANK…
