With the current bus service from Murgon to Brisbane and return ceasing from 1/2/2014, any suggestions re how my 75 year old friend can travel to Brisbane for medical appointments, to visit her children, and to go on a planned holiday in April 2014. She drives locally, but would not undertake the drive to Brisbane.
I am travelling around 20th dec for a week into gold coast; will be looking to pay reasonable costs to rent an affordable family car. let me know if any offers
Hi, I am a first time traveller to GC (all the way from asia). All the accomadation i checked need to pay for extra bed fr a 2 yr old kid. i wud be travelling with a large grup about 6 adults + 1 kid (2yr old) so its abit pricey wen we book a 3 bedroom apartment. So is it possible to just bring in the kid without actually registering the kid while we do the booking? Back in our place, we just book the apartments per the adults headcount, we dont actually count the kids. but since we wud be travelling far, we dont want to have any problems later on.
(i know this Q sounds weird, but thanks in advance)
We 'll be 2 people, we hire a car in Airlie Beach and are planning to head north from the 17th to 22nd of december.
Do you have suggestions ?
I am thinking about stopping in Townsville area (free campsite, should I book? ) I herad there are beaches good for snorkeling (but maybe not in dec as there are jellyfishes?)
Then I'd like to go to the waterfalls (Mulla Mulla), stroll in Daintree forest, around Port Douglas...
Don't particularly want to stay long in Cainrs (wee'll be there almost a day in the end, after car dropping off).
Are there free campsites in Cairns , Port Douglas area, in the parks ?
Do you think the heat makes it hard to sleep in a tent at this time ?
We are not planning on going to the Greatt Barrier Reef there, as we'll have been in the whitsundays islands and outer reef.
Thank you so much in advance for you advices !
Hi, I am planning to spend a few days during xmas on Fraser Island and as I am a 37-year old women I am wondering what the best way would be to go about it.
My fear is that organized tours end up in party feeling on each beach whilst being on my own might be a bit risky with getting stuck with the car. What do you reckon?
Thanks in advance.
We are leaving tomorrow night and am trying to rush out our itinerary. Really appreciate some help with putting all this together. We are a family of five adults with one 5yr old toddler and one 15 mth old baby. We arrive at brisbane airport on the 1 Dec at 7am and will be driving from brisbane airport to our hotel (Q1 resort & spa) in surfer's paradise. We leave for brisbane airport on the 8 dec catching the 11:45pm night flight home. Here are the places we want to visit and are fine doing 1 or 2 places in a day, 3 only if the timing suits.
Sea world, dream world, movie world
Mt tambourine, springbrook, lamination national park (can choose 1 or 2)
Glow worms, Outback spectacular
Harbour town, pacific fair, robina town, Carrara market (can choose 1 or 2)
Miramar cruise, lone pine sanctuary
Steve Irwin Australia zoo, carrumbin wildlife sanctuary
Strawberry Pick-Your-Own at strawberry fields (2west road, stanthorp) or just visit their cafe for lunch at their sunshine coast farm on lexton road.
Infinity, Le mans go karting, Carlton brewery, winery visit
Beach play/picnic, broadwater parklands
What would be the best way to plan out the days to visit these attractions taking into account their locations? Do let me know if any of these should be substituted with better options or just not worth the trip there.
Also, Is it safe to buy the VIP passes that has three theme parks in one?
Lastly, any good seafood restaurant to recommend? Which fish n chips place is your favorite?
Apologies for the chunky questions. Appreciate your help everyone. Thanks.
