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

      Gold Coast Jan 19, 2015 at 10:31 AM


      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?

      2.5 week holiday
      Jan 13, 2015, 12:14 PM
      We will be spending a total of 2.5 weeks in Australia. We own a timeshare, with resorts in these areas. Now I know nothing about Aulstralia, all we know is that we want to see the the best, and or hidden parts of it. We do not want to do all touristy stuff but a few would be nice. I know for sure I want to see the Great Barrier Reef! A boat tour? We do not dive! We love to hike, but do not want to spend all of our holiday doing it. We want to see more than Just Sydney. So if Aulstralia is your home and or favorite vacation destination, or just anyone with some itinerary suggestions please chime in. We could use some good advise. I'll put the link at bottom of the page to the Australia division of our time share. As so you can see exactly what areas we have available to us. We plan on visiting in Sept or Oct of 2015. No flights have been booked yet, so I am open to advice on that as well. We will be flying from Atlanta Ga. USA!

      Uluru National Park (Ayers Rock) May 28, 2014 at 6:18 PM

      I am coming over to Oz in Aug or 10 days for my first visit, landing in Sydney. Want to spend about 6 days there first doing the city and maybe Hunter Valley/Blue Mountains etc. Then thinking to fly to Uluru for Ayers Rock. So iconic and I may not be back for a long time if ever. Is it worth it? I gather it is very expensive; tho we r not on a totally budget trip I don't like being ripped off. Is 2 nights long enough or do we need longer? I think the flight lands in the morning so we'd get half of the first day. We could stay longer and hire a car? Is there anywhere else to drive to from Ayers Rock or should we keep it simple? Advice MUCH appreciated.

    • What to do and where to stay in Darwin in mid-July

      Darwin May 27, 2014 at 3:32 PM

      So my husband and I are planning to spend 3 nights in Kakadu Park (.5 to drive either way from Darwin, 2 full days in Park). And we know to visit the WWII museum(s). We have several other questions...
      1) What else is there to do in Darwin? I had originally planned 3-4 nights just in Darwin, but cannot really tell other items to do. We like beach, history, hiking, etc.
      2) Where is the best place to stay in Darwin? We will have a car for at least part of it (do we need it the entire time), but also like to be able to walk to sites/dining.
      3) We are automatic-car drivers. Best rental agency?
      4) Do we need to book hotels and/or activities well in advance, or is 1-4 days enough time?

      Can anyone tell me approximately what time the bus returns to the hotel on Day 4 of the "Rock and Rail" package on the Ghan? We wish to do the "Sounds of Silence" dinner, which requires pick-up one hour before sunset, and I don't know if we'll be back in time. According to the brochure, Day 4 involves:
      1. Travel from Alice Springs to Uluru, which takes about 4 1/2 to 5 hours.
      2. Visit Cultural Centre and Arts and Crafts Co-op.
      3. Guided walk to Mutitjulu waterhole; view cave paintings
      4. Tour base of Uluru and discover Mala walk. (Does "discover" mean we actually do the Mala walk? How long is it?)

      Seems like an awful lot to cover. Would we be back in time to leave one hour before sunset for the dinner?

      Driving holiday from Darwin to Ayers Rock

      Northern Territory Jul 30, 2013 at 3:37 PM


      My wife and I were thinking of doing a driving holiday from Darwin to Ayers Rock, probably at the end of the wet season, around May or June and just looking for advice as to whether we're allowing long enough, too long, and what sights we should make sure we see and activities we should do.

      We were thinking of a few nights in Darwin, with a day trip to Litchfield.

      Then one day to drive from Darwin via Kakadu to Katherine

      Another day from Katherine to Tennant Creek

      Another day fromTennant Creek to Alice Springs

      Another day from Alice to Uluru, and a few nights there.

      Is there anythin we should spend longer on, Kakadu, anything along the Stuart of interest or in Alice?

      We are in our early 30's with a keen sense of adventure, we like good food and drink (I'm aware there'll be none of that on the Stuart!!)

      Any advice would be appreciated.
