    • Mt Wellington to Fern Tree

      Hobart 21 hours ago

      I believe if I walk from Mt Wellington to Fern tree (to catch bus back to Hobart) it will be along the zig zag track route. Has anyone actually walked this route and is it a path and steps or clambering over boulders? It seems about 5.5 km. I will be there in mid February
      Thanks. Geoff

    • Best Way To Source A Camper For A Road Trip In Australia?

      Australia May 19, 2015 at 7:33 PM

      We are planning an Aussie road trip in a camper (RV or campervan), starting in the Barossa Valley in Adelaide, heading along the coast route to the Great Ocean road. Plan is to drive from Melbourne to Sydney, up the east coast and all the way to Noosa.

      Have been doing some research and there seems to be a few options in Australia; - buy a used camper from a private sale (resell after trip) - buy a camper from a private dealer - hire one - rideshare with other travelers

      Campervan hire;

      Camper sales:

      Came across this guide from an Aussie site which recommends buying a used camper through a private sale, as you can get a better deal;

      Leaning towards a used camper to buy as RVs from private dealers seem kind of expensive.

      Does anyone have any experience with the above sites or can recommend hiring, buying or other?

      Perth May 15, 2015 at 2:54 AM

      Hello, we are 4 bestfriends who will be traveling to Perth from Oct27-Nov5 (10days&9nights). We are on a tight budget. Our budgets are approx $1000 each. Or less.
      We need advice/suggestions/ recommendations on:
      -travel sequence & activities (as we will be staying for quite sometime, where should we go first, and what are some free or low cost activities we can do? We're planning to go to Rottnest..should we stay there for a night or 2??)

      -accomodations ( we've searched online and through websites such as airbnb but we have problem finding the right locations for us to stay as we do not have our travel sequence planned out yet. We're also not sure to stay at one place the whole time we're there or change as we move along?)

      -transportations (could you suggest the cheapest ways for us to go around perth while we move along from one place to another?)

      We are really new at planning our own trips, your help would really help us a lot. Please & thank you :)

      Hi- We are going to be on Hamilton island from march 5- march 9. I really want to go to whitehaven beach , but all the tour companies just seen to go for 4 hours and head back. They leave only about 2 hrs on the island. Does anybody have a good suggestion for going there? Or is 4 hours plenty of time??? Does anybody have a tour operator that they recommend? Do you think it will be sunny, or will it be rainy every day. I was thinking since it was their fall it would be good weather, so I hope it is not too rainy. Is there anything else we need to see on hamilton island. thanks for your help

      by daisy166 Online Now Jan 11, 2010 at 5:57 PM

      Hi there

      I am a 30-year old, NZ photographer and I am very interested in working on Hamilton Island for 6 months July - Dec 2010! I imagine Hamilton Island is a really fun, enjoyable, social place to work - is this correct?

      My questions include:

      Does Hamilton Island arrange the accommodation (if I get a job through them)?
      Is it shared accommodation or bunk beds etc?
      Is it expensive to live there?
      Does it get boring after a week?
      What is there to do aside from swim, walk, shop, golf, eat/drink?
      What is the main age group of the employees?
      Would you recommend working there?
      Is it difficult to find full-time employment? (I am a photographer but can also do administration roles)

      Any advice would be much appreciated! Please be honest!!

      Thank you
