I'm going to Sydney for a weekend and I'm looking for your recommendations of reasonably cheap accommodation - either cheapish hotels or hostels. I'm not looking for anywhere with a party vibe, but I'm open to suggestions apart from that.
Husband and I want to take a holiday during the school holiday break (I know, but we're teachers) in September and/or December (in the lead up to Christmas) this year. We live in Melbourne, Australia.
The major catch
- I'll be 5 or 7 months pregnant, depending when we go. [more inside]
[SydneyFilter] The Easter holidays are upon us, and we aren't going anywhere. Right now, it seems likely that we'd only be able to do day trips (same day return, no overnight stays) to places around Sydney. Where should we go? [more inside]
What is travel like in New Zealand and Australia in the two weeks following Christmas? [more inside]
Going to Melbourne (Australia) for 1 week have $400 how should I spend it? Accomodation has been paid... [more inside]
Keep us busy in Melbourne. What to do for a few days in Victoria's Capital? [more inside]
I'm a twenty-something American guy who has been considering an extended trip to Australia, ever since I visited for a few weeks in 2008. Last night I decided to be bold and finally applied for a Work and Holiday Visa (Subclass 462)
. I woke up and found the visa approval email in my inbox. Talk about fast!
Excellent... so now what? How do I pause my established life and go on an adventure? How do I let people know, especially at work? I have a fair amount of stuff tying me down at home, but I think I need to leave in a few months or it's never going to happen. [more inside]
