    • Exchanging GBP for AUD

      Perth Nov 26, 2014 at 6:19 AM

      Hi guys,
      I am planning on visiting Australia for the first time in Jan next year and I need some advice on where to exchange some sterling for some dollars.

      Generally I have been told and actually have experienced that you get a better buying rate of the local currency when buying locally in the country you are visiting.
      Is this still the case for Aus? Currently you get around 1.7 dollars for a pound here in the UK.
      Can anyone give a rough idea of what the exchange rate in Aus is?

      Also do the foreign exchange bureaus accept travellers cheques?

      I have looked into using a credit card or debit card but there are usage fees and non-sterling fees which i am trying to avoid.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Where to start my Working Holiday Visa experience??

      Australia Nov 12, 2014 at 10:59 AM

      Hello people, my name is Jo and I am travelling to Australia from Canada for one year! I was wondering where would be the best place to start off considering I would like to meet people and socialise as im going to travel alone! My top 4 choices are Australia's biggest cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth. So which places are best to start iff? I know Sydney is expensive but money is not a problem as I am going to be working to fund my trip as I go.

      Thanks for the answers!

      Is Jetstar pulling my leg?

      Australia Oct 29, 2014 at 3:23 AM

      I've booked a flight from Melbourne to Perth in January with Jetstar. A couple of weeks ago they send me an e-mail, telling me that the time of flight has been changed ... nothing bad, only an hour later. They asked me to accept that change and provided a link in the e-mail to their booking system.

      This link however didn't work. I always got a message that the server doesn't answer. I tried it directly on their website under the booking management. The info was the same but the button "continue" went into nirwana. So there again I couldn't accept that change. So I sent an e-mail to their helpdesk asking for support. I got a feedback mail, telling me that my mail had been received and that their staff will answer as soon as possible. That was 2 weeks ago ... so far they didn't bother to answer me. But in the meantime I received 2 additional mails from their booking system, telling me again about that change and asking for confirmation ... with the same dysfunctional link.

      Has somebody experience with that? I don't know if they are going to cancel that flight if I don't accept the change (what I would like to do, but can't).

    • the old rectory - serenity cafe

      by dokyoo01 Online Now May 1, 2011 at 3:31 AM

      the old rectory - serenity cafe - coffee stop, is closing its doors on 1/07/2011. this has been caused by the st agnes church ministry not renewing the lease. this cafe shop is great for weary travelers coming in from further out west to brisbane.
      we hope some voice from tourist would save the cafe shop
