With relative short notice I have the opportunity to go on vacation for 4 weeks in December.
One of the destination options is Western Australia.
My idea was to travel into Perth and out of Darwin or vice versa.
Question: How to get around?
My travel agent says I can hire a car (or camper) but the one way penalty is enormous - however I don't want to drive all the way back. He also says, you can go by bus, but you won't get to highlights on the way easily.
I remember many years ago on…
Perth to Port Lincoln. Going south through Western Australia stopping at the interesting places and good beaches. Need to be in Port Lincoln by the 1st Nov.

Just curious if anyone has had good New Years Eve experiences in Regional NSW? I live in Sydney, I've done the fireworks here too many times, and I want to do something different this year - was thinking maybe a road trip to somewhere outside of Sydney. Any ideas?
I just moved to Sydney, and I want to have a map of the Sydney metro area and/or NSW on my wall, mostly for reference, but for decor as well I suppose. I looked some up and most are fairly expensive at $50 or more. Does the city give away a free map of any kind at some council office? Tourism office perhaps? State historical society?
I will be travelling on the Australian East coast for 3 weeks in November and wanted to ask if any of you could tell me:
(i) What is the best spot to dive in the Great Barrier Reef?
(ii) Departing from Sidney, where is the best (quality/price/distance) place to dive with white sharks?
We are two early-70's people who have been in Australia several times but are making our first trip to the NT in May 2015. We are decent walkers but not climbers or distances over a couple of miles. We have the opportunity to fly into either Kakadu or Arnhem Land for a day and would love some insights into the merits of either. Our interests are both wildlife and Aboriginal art/culture.
