Itinerary suggestions are also welcome.

Trying to find a hotel for accommodation close to where I can hop on a tram to get to Etihad Stadium. We have tickets to the Royal Military Tattoo next February but most hotels in the CBD are either booked out or very expensive and we're not after 5 star accommodation. Someone with local knowledge may be of more assistance than staff at travel agents and Victorian Tourism!

We are planning to stay on LHI next April, self-catering, and would like to know the availability/cost of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. I hear that they are quite expensive.
We have a trip organised to North West Island on Great Barrier Reef off Gladstone but I need 10 more people to make up the numbers for the transfer boat to take us to the island (25 people minimum), the cost is $295 per person for the boat plus $5.5 per night for national park camping fees. You have to bring all your own camping equipment and food. Water is supplied and there is a toilet on the island.
The approximate departure date from Gladstone is 23 December 2015 returning around 4 January 2016
Its turtle nesting season so you will see plenty of big turtles coming up at night to lay eggs.
I heard about Surry Hill and it's a pretty chic place to be and nice cafes in there.

Visiting Perth this month in a little over a week with my fiance and we'll be visiting Rotto but we would like to do some snorkeling. How is the water in terms of being rough or manageable during July? We hear there will be more marine life due to a southerly warm current that passes by Rotto.
Also on a more general note, we've never been to Perth in the winter so we've no idea to what extent do we need to prepare winter clothing. Any suggestions would be great, we have fleece jumpers and the sort. Would this be enough or should we pack something a little more heavy duty?
Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!!

Greeting from Singapore,
Dear all, I am wondering if you could help me for the updating news for itinerary this August. Me and my partner will go to Melbourne on 1st August, and stays for my friend's wedding on 8th (at Melbourne). I am planning on visit Sydney (or maybe other interesting places/cities) during that time, or wander around Melb before 8th. i will go back on 11th.
I am not really into wildlife (like climbing or such) but i am excited to see koala and kangaroo since it's my first time to Aussie. I like taking selfies so i hope there're pretty places included.
If it possible could you please suggest several places to visit in one location so i wouldn't spend much time on the road. Plus, i couldn't rent a car since we dont have international driving license. Please also suggest the public transport we could have.
Thank you so much for your help! really appreciate it. Hope you could help me.
I will be going to Sydney in March 16 for a concert. How is the weather like during March? I heard that it rains a lot. What should I wear? If it's in the twenties, will shorts and sandals be sufficient?
Hi, my friend and I ( both females) are traveling to Perth on the coming 24th-27th July. As we only managed to squeeze out 4d3n for the trip, we would like your kind advice on the following :
1. Given our time constrain, Is the following itinerary feasible?
Day 1: kings park
- (arriving Perth @ 1730hrs)
Day 2: Caversham + Nambung national park
Day 3: Fremantle
Day 4: Perth city ( Bell Tower, the Perth Mint...etc)
- return flight @ 1830 hrs
Are there any points of interests not to be missed that can be slotted in, other than those mentioned above?
2. In terms on accommodation, We are currently looking at Hyat/ Duxton/ Hilton/ Holiday Inn/ The Nest on Newcastle. May I know which one is better and more conveniently located, based on our itinerary above?
Thank you so much in advance!
I will be travelling to melbourne this weekend and will stay there for a month. I see it's winter there and am planning my packing accordingly. It would be great though if somebody who is/ have been there can answer a few queries for me:
1. What to pack for a month in July? I will be working till 17:00 on weekdays and will have weekends for myself.
2. Any good trek/ mountain area nearby that can be covered in a day?
3. Any specific area for good food? And beer :D
Also, i would love to meet you guys on weekends to explore the city for a day or two together, the local way. Please let me know and let's plan.

We are travelling by train from Mission Beach to Proserpine. I want to know the best way to get to our hotel from the station, whether it be by taxi or the bus service available from the station, which is a $33 for both of us. I'm not sure where our hotel (Martinique) is from the centre of Airlie Beach, so what would be the best form of travel?
Can anyone suggest some places to visit for kids below 5 years that are cheap or free. Thanks
