    • 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?

      Two Daintree Questions

      Daintree Mar 30, 2015 at 7:31 AM

      We have one day to visit Daintree and Cape Tribulation from Cairns. We would like to walk in the rainforest, ride the zipline, see a cassowary, visit Mossman Gorge, walk on a nice beach, do a couple of boardwalks and see any other good sites. Can anyone do an itinerary for us that we can comfortably fit into one day? Also, is it possible to walk in the Daintree N.P. without having to pay to go on a guided tour?

      Kids friendly places in Perth (animal related trip)

      Perth Apr 15, 2015 at 12:05 AM

      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!
      TIA!

      Good Day Everyone!

      My employment contract ended last March 31, 2015 (3 years employment). I am planning to go on a vacation in Australia and visit friends there with my partner's mother and sister. Since I am now unemployed, would it be grounds for my application to be denied even if I have funds and a return ticket? I am planning to apply a tourist visa this April.

      Hope to be enlightened. Thank you very much! 

    • Melbourne (after a business trip)

      Hi there,

      I'm thinking of visiting Melbourne after a business trip in Sydney. But I'm still indecisive on whether or not to stay in Sydney, head to Brisbane or Melbourne. I would like to get a few ideas of what Melbourne has to offer (comparing to other cities in Australia).

      Thanks in advance, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Can someone suggest me which is the right location for me to stay and recommend the median level price hotel for us.I'm sure it's peak season during that period.

    • 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!

    • What does Grafton Need?

      Grafton Mar 19, 2015 at 12:57 PM

      Sometimes when you live in a place you become blind to what it has to offer. Then I thought who better to ask than people who see this town with fresh eyes! So.... I'm looking for ideas on what Grafton could offer but currently doesn't like services, entertainment, café, restaurant, bar, drink, retail, nightlife, things that might interest older or younger people. Any suggestions?

      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 !
