      Considering moving to Hobart

      Hobart Oct 3, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      Hi there folks

      I have just received a job offer from UTAS. In making my decision to move, I wondered if anyone could give me some pros and cons of living in Hobart specifically and Tasmania in general. If there are any Scots out there who have done this already - I would particularly love to hear from you! I really want to take the leap and have an exciting adventure, but I have never lived outside of the UK before and so I am slightly terrified...

      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Taxi on Xmas night

      Hobart Sep 29, 2015 at 6:32 AM


      We are a family of four and we will be arriving Hobart Airport on 25 Dec 11PM. I am looking to reserve hotel rooms either near airport or at the city centre.

      1) Will there be taxi working on christmas night? 11:30PM?
      2) I am not sure if we should walk to the nearest hotel from the airport (collect car rental from airport next morning) or take a taxi to city centre near Market Place and rent a car from Avis.

      Appreciate your advice.

      Thank you!

      Sydney Sep 10, 2015 at 10:56 PM

      Hi from South Australia, checking some websites it appears you are changing to a different format. Once I arrive at Central from the airport, where can I buy the Seniors day pass? If i want the new Opal ticket for Seniors does it apply to interstate visitors? Looking at the web it seems to include only NSW card holders.

      My Hotel is near a light rail stop so I will be using that but also need to use a bus or suburban train.

      I am planninga trip to Australia for the november and I saw that you can either fly to Alice Springs or Uluru and they are about 500 km far. I would be going mostly to visit Uluru so may be I should fly there and not to Alice Springs but I saw there are really a few accomodation in Uluru. I have 4 days to spend there, would you raccomend to stay in Alice Springs and take a tour to Uluru or sleep there and may be stay 3 days instead of four?

      Hotel and nearby attractions

      by grandmaR Online Now Jan 13, 2012 at 6:15 PM

      I am getting a cruise from Perth (Fremantle) in July 2012, and my travel agent has proposed the Tradewinds Hotel, which doesn't seem to have any listing on VT. The reviews seem mixed, and they are also mixed for the hotel that Cruise Critics recommends which is the Esplanade. The disadvantage to the Eplanade is that they charge for the internet.

      We will be flying in from Sydney, arriving in the early afternoon. The travel agent thinks that we will be better off to have most of the commute from the airport done on the day before the cruise so we will just have a short taxi ride to the ship. Does anyone know any reason why this hotel wouldn't be advisable?

      Perth or Fremantle

      by Vicki-Maree Online Now Aug 11, 2010 at 2:58 PM

      We will be first time visitors to WA in mid January and have only just booked flights. We thought we would stay 2 nights in Perth before picking up a car and exploring. However, I am starting to think it would be better to stay in Fremantle rather than Perth but there doesn't appear to be a great deal of accommodation available or if it is, it is200 plus a night. Does anybody have any suggestions, there are only the 2 of us and we would like to be close to the water.

      further to boulters apartment

      by 726jenni Online Now Feb 1, 2009 at 2:42 AM

      Thank you all for great info re apartment in freo.
      we have decided on an apartment in central fremantle and very close to the esplanade reserve, but not in Norfolk st as we thought it may be too noisy.
      Now we really need advice on the best way to get from the airport to Fremantle.
      We would rather not hire a car. Is there a train from the airport or do we get a cab or bus to the city (Perth)and train from there? or is there a bus direct to freo? Would it be expensive to get a cab from aiport to central Fremantle?
      Thanks guys.

      The Model Car Place

      by DaveMullany Online Now Sep 5, 2005 at 2:52 PM

      Greetings. Sorry to prevail upon the wisdom of Australians yet again, but... when last I was in Fremantle, I was taken to a place - a large shed, really - that was packed from end to end with the most astonishing collection of vintage toy cars, trucks, trains, planes, toys and so forth. I'm not making this up; I know I'm not dreaming and I swear I haven't had a frostie for at least 22 minutes. Does is exist? What is it? Where is it? Why is it?

      PS: I'm sure it was near your famous aquarium (the one you walk through while Johnnies (sharks) swim over your head)

      The pub that sells Red Back beer

      by DaveMullany Online Now Sep 4, 2005 at 6:17 AM

      Greetings all. Four of us (South Africans) will be in Freo at the end of this month. I was last there about 12 years ago with some good buddies and we had a rip-roaring time in a pub that sold a beer called Red Back (named after your world-famous spider).

      A few years ago, one of my travelling companions (my best friend, actually) was killed in an air crash, so it would be a sort of pilgrimage for me to find that pub again and lift a glass in his memory. The pub might have been called the Red Back (although I doubt it), or even the Dogbolter (or was that one of the brews we downed . . . I was tired and confused at the time :-). Or maybe it was the Anchor.

      Question is: does it still exist and where in Fremantle is it? I recall it had an amazing shop selling all sorts of beers and pub memorabilia. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers
