    • 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

      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.
      All comments and answers are appreciated!

      by vicksterc Online Now May 27, 2014 at 3:32 PM

      Hello.
      So my husband and I are planning to spend 3 nights in Kakadu Park (.5 to drive either way from Darwin, 2 full days in Park). And we know to visit the WWII museum(s). We have several other questions...
      1) What else is there to do in Darwin? I had originally planned 3-4 nights just in Darwin, but cannot really tell other items to do. We like beach, history, hiking, etc.
      2) Where is the best place to stay in Darwin? We will have a car for at least part of it (do we need it the entire time), but also like to be able to walk to sites/dining.
      3) We are automatic-car drivers. Best rental agency?
      4) Do we need to book hotels and/or activities well in advance, or is 1-4 days enough time?
      Thanks!

      We'll be in the Darwin area in late Aug. We're hoping to go for a few days to Kakadu, then to the Stone Country Festival on August 25. We will be borrowing a friends car (not hiring) and they've said it's ok to use it off-road, but I believe it's 2WD. Will we be able to make it across Cahill's Crossing, if we chose the right time? I'd really love to go the the festival, but don't want to damage the car or drive all the way out there to discover we can't make it across. Any other advice for the area, Kakadu, Nitmulik, or the festival would be much appreciated.

      Enjoying Darwin a couple of days in July

      by xantylaol Online Now Jun 29, 2012 at 8:58 AM

      Hi!

      I'm gonna travel to Darwin in a few days and I've done some research on the tours and stuff you can do there. I really wanna experience the nature and see as much as possible. I have three-four days roughly, and I would like to focus primarily on the landbased tours, even though the ocean is great as well. What are the best tours I can take now? I've targeted these as good options so far:

      1. Venture North Daytrips: http://www.venturenorth.com.au/
      2. Litchfield Day Tours: http://www.litchfielddaytours.com/
      3. SeaDarwin: http://seadarwin.com/

      What I want to experience is as much as possible of genuine nature, wilderness, wild animals and landscapes combined with a guide with a lot of factual knowledge, competence and passion for these things who wants to share. If travelling alone with the guide and not a group is the best option, that's ok.

      I'm travelling alone, am fit, used to rough terrain, heat, humidity, wild animals and whatnot and like to get out there :)

      I hope you can give me some tips and recommendations on what I should focus on.

      Secondarily, tips on nice stuff to do in Darwin itself is appreciated - like where to grab some good food, good place to grab a beer during the evening, and so on. I also noticed the Botanical Garden as a probable nice place to visit.

      Thanks to everybody who takes the time and effort to assist! :)

      We have a car and planning to drive around various parts but do not want to change hotels daily. We like to base in a town and do a few day trips and then maybe move to another town and do the same. Beside Darwin, we thought of looking at Kakadu or even Katherine. If you have better suggestions, please shoot.

      We like nature and animals. Please suggest which towns we can base in and how to divide the 9 days.

      Hi,

      We are a family with a 2 year-old and a 6 months old baby, and we are thinking of going to Darwin for a few days in Sept, and visiting Litchfield park or Kakadu park.

      Do you think this is possible for us? What would be best, by campervan or by car + hotel?
      Is there a lot of walking to do, as we'll probably end up carrying our 2 kids...?

      Thanks for your help!

    • car in Darwin

      by elenem Online Now May 10, 2010 at 2:26 AM

      We're a Belgium family with three kids and will be travelling around Australia and New-Zealand for one year.

      In Australia we will travel with a Toyota Landcruiser.
      The car will be used untill the 15th of june 2010 and we will arrive at the 30th of june 2010 in Darwin.

      Between the 15th and the 30th of june the car (and all the campingstuff) need to have a safe 'sleeping'place. Can you help us ?

      Thanks,
      Marleen.

      Hi,

      I will be flying from Melbourne to Darwin at the end of June and was wondering what the cheapest airfares for this time of year are? At the moment the cheapest flights are169 one way. I don't know whether to just book these flights or take a chance and wait for cheaper flights?

      Thanks,
      Rebecca

    • kakadu tours with children

      Can anyone recommend a company they have used for tours of Kakadu which would be suitable for a couple with a 4 year old child. Worried about ending up on a tour with a bunch of teenagers/ gap year kids.

    • Darwin without a car

      by usernmea Online Now Nov 29, 2009 at 8:15 PM

      We are arriving in Darwin from Sydney in late January. Have 4yo kids. We are not going to hire a car.

      Any tips?

      We would love to have a river cruise or go somewhere out of the city but we don't know if that's possible without hiring a car?

      Thnx.
