      Michaelmas Cay or Green Island?

      Cairns Dec 29, 2014 at 6:20 PM

      Which is a better Cairns day tour, to Michaelmas Cay or to Green Island? We are interested in going to the outer reef, swimming and snorkeling and not so much interested in tropical rain forest.

      Thank you for your reply.

      PADI Open Water Divers Cert. Where to get one?!?!

      Gold Coast Jan 19, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      Hey.

      I'm moving to Brisbane/Gold Coast for Uni in July, for a year. Want to have my PADI so that I can do lots of diving with ease whilst I'm there. Does anyone know the best way to go about getting a PADI? I heard it was expensive in Australia, so planned to nip across the ocean... somewhere... for a week and check out another island whilst getting my PADI certificate. Anyone got any recommendations of places to go that are both affordable (flights, hostel + cost of course), and really worth visiting?

      Thaaaanks!

      Gold Coast Jan 11, 2015 at 8:59 AM

      Hey there! I really hope someone could help me out. Been doing my research, but unable to come to a conclusion. Can someone give me a list of hotels that I can stay in Surfers Paradise, where I can have a good view of the ocean and are near to halal restaurants?

      Really appreciate if someone could help me out.

      Many thanks!!

      Cairns in February

      Cairns Dec 29, 2014 at 3:36 PM

      We will be in Cairns, Australia on February 8 - 11, 2015. Has anyone experienced bad weather or cyclone in Cairns in February? What do you suggest that we do in 3 days in Cairns? Is there any specific tour or island we need to visit. We mainly would like to experience the Great Barrier Reef and do some snorkeling.

      Thank you.

    • Cairns & Port Douglas

      Port Douglas Jan 8, 2015 at 6:30 AM

      I am visiting Australia for the first time in March and will be spending 4 days in Port Douglas and 3 in Cairns. Is it more cost effective for me as a solo traveller to hire a car for a week or is public transport good enough? I would like to avoid expensive tours if possible. Thanks

      Information needed about Mount Isa

      by Kumarash Online Now Jan 7, 2006 at 10:15 AM

      I am considering moving to Australia and work in Mount Isa. I am concerned about Health issues as there are a lot of industries smelters etc in Mount isa. Is there any danger to health from these? Second thing is about the life in Mount Isa. Is it a good place to live in considering that it is a small town and I like living in a big city like Sydney etc.

      I shall appreciate an early replay.

      Cheers.

      don't bother, hows the black star going, I hear they are having problems with hiring staff, thinking of relocating back to the Isa.

    • For the locals: How is living in Mount Isa?

      by rondelacruz Online Now Jul 21, 2005 at 10:09 PM

      HI guys....

      Am new at VirtualTourist and just found some pretty good info from members regarding Mount Isa.

      I'm currently looking at working there, its not sure yet as my application is still up in the air but I'd like to get as much info on the Isa as I can just in case. So here are my questions for those who care to reply :)

      1. Is a car a necessity? How much is a trusty 2nd hand car there?
      2. How about rental accomodations? I've read that its pretty tough to get vacancies for most flats. Is this still true?
      3. How is the nightlife there?
      4. Is pollution a problem? Any public health concerns on those smelter fumes?
      5. Any other info you can share for possible newcomers there?

      Thanks in advance for any bit of info you can give...

      Cheers,
      Ron.
