Hi guys,
Im planning a 2 month trip to Australia (Feb/March) with my boyfriend, and are struggling to put an itinerary in place. It seems like almost everyone spends a lot of time on the east coast - but I am sceptical. We am not after beach parties, booze and theme parks and super crowded coast lines, and I am getting the impression that I find a lot of that there. Sounds cheesy, but I would like to see the real Australia, outback, nature, mountains, diving, etc... without missing out on the…

Hi all,

We are planning to visit Australia at the end of May for approximately 15 days (from Jakarta). We would like to rent a car for a relaxing roadtrip.

- perth-broome (possibly adding a little of the Kimberly region if time allows).
- darwin-Alice springs, making side trips to kakadu and uluru.
We are mostly interested in nature…

I was stupid enough to buy a Melbourne to Hobart return ticket when I meant to buy a Hobart to Melbourne return. I only discovered it this morning when I went to do the check-in.

It costs more to change the dates/flights than to buy a new ticket and as it is a cheapie there is no refund. So I have ended up buying a new ticket later in the month.

So I have a ticket I cant use. Departure Melbourne Monday 2 May morning, return from Hobart Wed 4 May afternoon.

If anyone wants to have a go at…

Basically, I got declined a working holiday visa because I forgot to send a copy of my passport (stupid, I know!). I was wondering if anyone knew whether I would definitely have to pay the fee for the visa again or whether there was any way to get the money back. The phone lines are closed for the weekend and I want to apply ASAP hence asking on here!

Hi everybody,

I was wondering if someone knows if it is legal to carry a (concealed) pocket knife in Australia. I would like to take it with me during my trip to Australia for camping purposes and safety.

Thanks in advance! :)

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
