      eVisitor visas

      Australia Jan 6, 2016 at 2:37 PM

      For those who have used them to visit Australia, what would you say is the 'normal' processing time?

      Am on a UK passport (British citizen) and applied a couple of days back - have not heard anything at all.

      Am thinking whether the fact that I've been naturalised as a British citizen (originally from Russia) as opposed to being born in the UK might be a bit of an issue for them...

      Thanks a lot!

    • How Expensive Is It

      Perth Jan 25, 2016 at 11:43 PM

      I am going to Perth in February and I want to try and ensure that I have enough money. Our hotel is paid for but we like to eat , drink and enjoy going to bars, preferably with like blues. The International Arts Festival will be on so we also want to take advantage of that. We have a budget for the two of us of 600 Australian Dollars a day. Is this too little?

    • A week to 10 days trip to Perth flying from Melbourne. First time to Perth for us.

      Perth Jan 13, 2016 at 10:01 PM

      Don't necessarily want to stay in the City, so would like some suggestions of a good place to stay for a couple in our early 70's, fit and healthy, not into extreme activities such as bushwalking, or water sports etc. but a beach or riverside resort would appeal. Always lovely to relax back with a wine looking at the water. Want to be able to see as much as we can of Perth and surrounds as well as some relaxation. Will hire a car for a few days as well as take advantage of public transport. So question is:

      Where should we stay:
      What attractions are in that area:
      What other attractions are not too far away that we could visit either by car or public transport.
      Any other tips you may have for first timers to Perth.

      Thank you

      Suggestions for 3 week itinerary, backpacking Southeast ex Sydney?

      Australia Jan 17, 2016 at 7:09 AM

      Hi there!
      I just got the flight ticket to Sydney, and started researching on the itinerary of 3 week backpacking trip, thinking to go west to Adelaide and / or up to Brisbane, in late April - early May
      although I'm afraid probably it is too ambitious to cover all this area in 3 weeks and low budget costs...
      Would be great to hear your tips, suggestions, experiences about this part of Australia, to get a rough idea about main places to visit around there and in between, so to balance time wisely over this big area.
      I'll be just one person travelling, without tourist package, independently, mostly by public transport (which I understand is not as easy as I'd like), plus maybe a daytrip here or there with local travel agency, if it worths to get the most out of this time frame.
      I guess a couple of low budget flight tickets could fit in, too, some good offers may surface from time to time
      My main interests are city life, nature, hiking, photography ...
      (I'm not into night clubbing, drinking etc, mostly like sightseeing the country)
      Your suggestions guys for a low cost sensible itinerary, to connect a few nice places easily aproachable by public transport, are very very welcome!!!
      many thanks to all!
      happy travels!

      Safe area to stay in?

      Sydney Jan 26, 2016 at 7:28 AM

      Hey guys! My wife and I are due to visit Sydney this March and I'd like to get some advice on which area of the city is OK to stay at an AirBnB place. I've read the 'Dangers and Warnings' page and one poster wrote to avoid Surry Hills, Chippendale, Woolloomooloo and Waterloo. If that's true then where does that leave me? I'd like somewhere that's an easy walk to public transport and some reasonably priced eateries. Thanks for any replies!

      We are arranging our eighth trip to Aus next February and want to visit Canberra for the first time. We will probably have two days (one night) available before an early evening flight to Adelaide. Should we keep our rental car or rely on public transport to get around? What are the logistics of getting around the main sites by car,should we keep it, and is parking ok at them? Do most hotels in the centre have parking facilities? Any tips would be most welcome!

      Watching dolphins in Jervis Bay

      Jervis Bay Jul 29, 2014 at 5:22 AM

      At the moment I'm planning a trip around Australia in January. We will stay for a few days at Sydney of course and we have been told that Jervis Bay is a perfect place for watching dolphins.

      Now we are wondering if it is a good idea to do this as a day trip from Sydney. Google maps says that it's a 2,5 hours trip one way. So we would be on the road for 5 hours altogether.

      How good is the chance to see dolphins there? And can you see them from the shore or is it necessary to do a boat trip? My wife gets seasick very easily.
