    • PINNACLES DAY TOUR 12/13 NOV 2015

      Perth Apr 12, 2015 at 5:53 AM

      Hi,

      2 of us will like to go for Yanchep/Pinnacles/Lancelin day tour either 12 or 13 Nov 2015.

      We are travelling on a quite tight budget coz so much to do in Perth.....

      1.Anybody can suggest this day trip other than travel agents to lower cost, driving for us is quite inconvenient?
      2.Anybody travelling on these days can add us or go with us to share cost?
      3.Is whale watching worth it?

      Can also contact us at budgettravelbugz@gmail.com

    • Mispelt Middle Name

      Brisbane Mar 23, 2015 at 12:57 AM

      I am worried as "lastminuteflights"  have mispelt my friends middle name (they missed out an "A" "Christian" instead of "Christiaan") My travel agent says I have to cancel the ticket & re-purchase another, as they cant change the name details due to Cathay Pacifics policy. Only thing is if I have to do that same ticket is now over $400 dearer, as this is Cathay Pacific's policy they say.

      I contacted Cathay Pacific direct who said the travel agent has to make the name change, so don't know what to do now. They say we won't be able to travel unless another ticket is purchased, what do I do? I can't see why they just can't add an "A" onto their computer file. Will we still be able to fly with this mispelt name?

      Hi,
      We will be going to Perth from 17th to 23rd May with our 33 month old daughter.
      We love animals and would like to expose our daughter to all the animal-friendly places in Perth.
      We planned to go for a farmstay and maybe to see the dolphins.
      Where else is nice for her to interact with animals?
      Or can you suggest any toddler-friendly places?
      We will be driving throughout so transport is not an issue.

    • What to expect of life in Australia?

      Australia Mar 31, 2015 at 2:37 PM

      Hi to all!!
      I have heard two opposite opinions about Australia as a place to live in - on one hand that it is very boring place, nothing much to do there, you can´t even swim because the waves are too high, not so much cultural life like in Europe. On the other hand others think the nature is amazing,there is always a job to find and people are nice...
      So does anyone have any experience in living for a longer period in Australia? Perth, Melbourne, Sydney...?
      I intend to try to enter Phd studies there and, if I like it, to stay there.
      I would like to hear your arguments for both positive and negative sides.
      Thank you very much in advance.

      All the best!

      Road Trip: Sydney to Brisbane

      Australia Apr 4, 2015 at 2:18 AM

      We have rented a spaceships Alpha 2 Berth car for 5 days. We are planning to sleep overnight in the car for 4 days. I have several questions to ask before we are heading on the road. We are travelling on a budget, but want to stay safe and be able to take hot showers along the way.

      1) I read an itinerary from britz.com.au, sounds like a good one: or you have a better recommendation?

      Day 1
      - Terrigal
      - The Entrance
      - Newcastle
      - Port Stephens / Tomaree National Park
      (Overnight at One Mile Beach Holiday Park)

      Day 2
      - Port Macquarie / Koala Hospital
      - The Sea Acres Rainforest Centre
      - Overnight at The Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park

      Day 3
      - Coffs Harbour
      - Miniature Dutch Village
      - Overnight at Park Beach Holiday Park

      Day 4
      - Byron Bay
      - Either Mount Warning, Nightcap National Park, Broken Head Nature Reserve
      - Cape Byron
      - Overnight at North Coast Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach

      Day 5:
      - Fortitude Valley
      - ??
      - Returning the car to spaceships.

      2) The above place to stay required to pay fees between $40 - $60 per night, just to park in their property. Does the rest area or the national park allow to be parked overnight for free? Are they safe? Any recommendation?

      3) I want to see the most beautiful side of Australia, can you recommend some places I should not miss along the road trip.

      Thanks all !
