Hi all,
I have an australian visa (subclass 189) and i'm wanting to do a road trip over there. I live in the UK and i would like to keep my job to start with. I work 2 weeks on 3 weeks off.

Being member of HI (national association Danhostel, Denmark), do I need to become member of YHA as well to enjoy discounts in Australian hostels? And are there YHA hostels in Australia not associated with HI?

Thank you

I'm British and basically I'm an idiot and never sent a copy of my passport that the Australian border agency requested. I thought my application had been accepted and flew to Australia (got in on an existing tourist Visa without realising). I have now been here 2 weeks and just received an email saying my application has been declined. I was wondering if there was any way I wouldn't have to return back to England in order to apply for another holiday visa. PLEASE PLEASE ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!

Hi there

We are planning a ten day road trip (probably hire a camper) from Brisbane in December. I have read here that it will be humid and wet and not the ideal time to travel. I'd like to do some diving so initial plan was to work our way up to Cairns and then back down again, don't mind the long distances.

Any advice on places to stay along the way? Would it be a better idea to only go as far up the coast at Airlie Beach? we had thought of stopping at 1770 and Noosa on the way.

Thanks for…

Anybody here been to Kangaroo Island? Is it worth a trip for an Aussie who lives in a rural area and has travelled extensively in Australia? It's never really been on my list of places to go, but people on other sites (e.g. TA) seem to rave about it and are always recommending that overseas visitors 'don't miss it', even when they have limited time and a restricted budget.

Is anybody on here an OAP who can say what happens to your pension if you go on a trip outside Australia for over 6 weeks?

My mother seems to think she will lose the pension and have to reapply, but I can't see anything about that online, just a temporary reduction in some components of the pension.
