    • Hostel and transport

      Gold Coast 15 hours ago

      Hi guys. My friend and I will be travelling to gold coast in this coming september for 3 days. Trying to search for suitable accommodation, but I have no idea which area should we stay.
      Here is our schedule: warner bro, white water world, dracula haunted house and wet n wild. We would like to visit some nice beaches as well.
      Can anyone please kindly enlighten me about which area is the best so we dont have to spend so much time on travelling?
      Another question, is there anything like travel pass in gold coast? How does the public transport work?

      Sorry for asking so much. Thanks in advanced guys! :))))

    • yorkeys knob to palm cove

      Yorkeys Knob Aug 6, 2014 at 5:19 PM

      Our cruise ship tenders into Yorkeys Knob. We have already done the skyrail, daintree, and GBR while staying in Port Douglas on a previous trip to Australia. We were thinking of just spending the day in Palm Cove. Does Sunbus have transportation from Yorkey to Palm cove? If not, would we need a taxi? How is the availability of taxis and cost? Any other idea for the day-- Green Island??
      thanks

    • Best snorkelling off of Cairns

      Cairns Aug 7, 2014 at 10:15 AM

      My husband and I have been lucky enough to snorkell all over the world, so there is a lot to live up to. There are lots of reviews and companies but not many spectacular photos making me a bit doubtful. Can anyone recommend a site that has not been damaged and has vibrant coral and beautiful colourful fish and maybe a turtle if two?
      Any help would be much appreciated. We will be arriving late October.
      Thanks.

      Watching dolphins in Jervis Bay

      Jervis Bay Jul 29, 2014 at 5:22 AM

      At the moment I'm planning a trip around Australia in January. We will stay for a few days at Sydney of course and we have been told that Jervis Bay is a perfect place for watching dolphins.

      Now we are wondering if it is a good idea to do this as a day trip from Sydney. Google maps says that it's a 2,5 hours trip one way. So we would be on the road for 5 hours altogether.

      How good is the chance to see dolphins there? And can you see them from the shore or is it necessary to do a boat trip? My wife gets seasick very easily.

      Hi all,

      Good day!

      I'm wondering what's there to do with 2 hours left of daylight in Launceston in the late afternoon?

      If I have 2 hours from 1600 -- 1800 (before it gets dark and it's time for dinner), what could I see/ do in Launceston?

      Thanks for your suggestions! :)

      smiles,

      Batman Fawkner Inn?

      by idy Online Now Nov 12, 2009 at 1:01 AM

      Hullo forum folks!

      I'm having a bit of trouble finding budget accomodation in Launceston for the January period that suitable for a family of 5 adults (including an elderly couple).

      But I found this place called Batman Fawkner Inn, does anyone know of it? They apparently just recently reopened and I can't find any reviews online. They are located at 39 Cameron Street.

      Anyone who knows the place, I'd be grateful for your opinion about the place.

      Thanks in advance.

      Day Tours to Bridestowe Lavender Farm

      by Tsubame Online Now Nov 21, 2005 at 9:47 AM

      Hi, am in a bit of a fix now. I could only find Tiger Wilderness Tour doing the Lavender Farm tour from the internet. BUT, they are already fully booked for the day! To prevent further disappointment, we have booked the Cradle Mt. day tour with them, so that leaves us with only 5th Dec, Monday to visit the farm.

      Can anybody advise what other day tour company also have the Lavender tour? We will be based in Launceston. And if we cannot get a tour, what is the best possible way to get there via public transport as we do not drive?

      Thanks very much.

      Accomodation in or around Launceston

      by Audrey118 Online Now May 25, 2005 at 1:07 AM

      This is well in advance planning, but becos there will be at least 10 pax, if not 12, and during late January, it is peak season.

      We will be flying in from Melbourne to Hobart, driving past Richmond to stay 2 nights in Bichenon (any accomodation tips there also welcome - we have considered Diamond Bay), and then off to Launceston for another 2 nights.

      we are looking for exclusive type of accomodation where cost is irrelevant. Some accomodation does not permit children - we have one child, 10 years old travelling with us. It may be a private villa, chef runned historical home, or scenic view apartments. It need not be smack in city centre, as we will have cars...10-15 mins outside of Launceston is OK with us.

      thanks in advance
