      3 days itinerary

      Sydney 16 hours ago

      Could you suggest an itinerary for a 3 days stay in Sydney? I already gave a look at VT travel guides but there are not itineraries yet. I would like to enjoy a couple of beaches, a typical restaurant and market, featherdale park as I understand it is the one where you get more in touch with animals(is this correct?). I would also do a whale watching tour but 20th november seems to be too late. I know 3 days is a limited time so if I have to choose I'd rather open spaces than museums or malls.
      Thankyou all for your suggestions.

      I only have 2 choices:

      Considering moving to Hobart

      Hobart Oct 3, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      Hi there folks

      I have just received a job offer from UTAS. In making my decision to move, I wondered if anyone could give me some pros and cons of living in Hobart specifically and Tasmania in general. If there are any Scots out there who have done this already - I would particularly love to hear from you! I really want to take the leap and have an exciting adventure, but I have never lived outside of the UK before and so I am slightly terrified...

      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Taxi on Xmas night

      Hobart Sep 29, 2015 at 6:32 AM


      We are a family of four and we will be arriving Hobart Airport on 25 Dec 11PM. I am looking to reserve hotel rooms either near airport or at the city centre.

      1) Will there be taxi working on christmas night? 11:30PM?
      2) I am not sure if we should walk to the nearest hotel from the airport (collect car rental from airport next morning) or take a taxi to city centre near Market Place and rent a car from Avis.

      Appreciate your advice.

      Thank you!

    • What to wear in Sydney in early November

      Sydney Oct 9, 2015 at 4:31 AM

      I will be heading to Sydney and Blue Mountains for the period of 5 Nov to 20 Nov this year and I wonder what I should wear for the weather during that period of time. Will it be alright for me to wear t-shirts and bermudas there or should I cover up more? I hope you all could give me an idea of what I should wear and how do the locals there wear their clothes in November. I come from hot sunny Singapore and I do not know what Spring is like in Sydney in November. Any advise from you would be greatly appreciated.

      I am planninga trip to Australia for the november and I saw that you can either fly to Alice Springs or Uluru and they are about 500 km far. I would be going mostly to visit Uluru so may be I should fly there and not to Alice Springs but I saw there are really a few accomodation in Uluru. I have 4 days to spend there, would you raccomend to stay in Alice Springs and take a tour to Uluru or sleep there and may be stay 3 days instead of four?
