      We will be in Darwin in July and my husband has always want to go barra fishing. Can anyone recommend an operator? I have seen Helifishing but that would be too pricey and we are going to Kakadu ourselves afterwards.

      Halls Gap Apr 28, 2015 at 1:14 AM

      I will be staying at the halls gap motel. ( I know I can walk up from Halls Gap, but it will be a bit too far for me)

      I want to start my walk from the wonderland car park, then down to halls gap on the front of the mountain path.

      Is the any way I can get a taxi or anything from the motel to the car park on morning?
      Thanks

    • 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; wickedcampers.com.au/cheap-c... http://www.jucy.com.au/vehicles/

      Camper sales: http://www.melbournerv.com.au/ http://www.goldstreamrv.com.au/ http://www.pagebros.com.au/

      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; blog.gumtree.com.au/backpack...

      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?

    • 4 girls on a budget to Perth

      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 :)

      Brissie to Mackay road trip

      by backpackerbaby Online Now Oct 3, 2008 at 6:19 PM

      G'day,
      will be driving from Brissie to Mackay soon, would like to stop somewhere in between - any suggestions of where to stop? People suggested TOWN of 1770 but it's a bit off bruce highway (yeah I've a bit time constraint). Any other places you'd recommend me to make stop-overs? I'm prepared to stay AT LEAST 1 night somewhere in between - but of course would like to check out some places as well (no need for going into the water... just check out some spots will do)

      any recommendations would be appreciated.
      thanks

      cheers
