Weekend getaways from Melbourne?

I'm an American who has been living in Melbourne for several years and my mom is coming to visit. We are hoping to get out of town for a couple of days to somewhere driving distance (ideally within 3 hours from Melbourne). We've already done the Great Ocean Road, Mornington Peninsula, and Philip Island so hoping for something new. [more inside]

Canberra: Long weekend edition

I have only ever been to Canberra for fly-in meetings and decided it was time to see the capital properly. I will visit for the ANZAC Day long weekend, arriving on the Friday night and flying out late afternoon Monday. What are your favourites at the museums and galleries? Pleasant walks or other recommended outdoor activities? Eating options that suit the solo traveller? Best places to see autumn leaves? Things that will overturn the generally-held views of Canberra by Australians who live elsewhere? [more inside]

I tried to do a nice thing.

I am trying to put together an itinerary for my parents who will be spending a week in Melbourne before my partner and I arrive. My mom really wants to see the penguin parade and I booked tickets for her - before looking into transportation to/from the island. Oops. Now I'm wondering if there's a way to fix this. [more inside]

Travel: Itinerary for a week in October alone based around Sydney?

Should I host for the first time when I am out of the country?

I've seen other posts about this but my situation is a little specific. I am going to be out of the country for a month in a few weeks. I just moved in about a month ago to a new-ish studio in a great location in Sydney. I will probably post a listing in a week or so, and I am leaving the country in about three weeks. [more inside]

Road Trip AUS - Where To Stay?

Road Trip AUS - usually when I roadtrip (in the US), I'll just stop for the day when; somewhere particularly nice turns up; I'm tired and reach the next motel. Is this style of roadtripping possible in AUS? From the research I've done so far, I'm not too sure, and I'm concerned about hassles involving pre-booking hotels to ensure a place to stay each night: for me, in a roadtrip, I'm looking for the freedom of not having to make daily schedules.
