Hi, I am exploring the possibility of travelling by shuttle bus from the international airport to Sydney City and back. I read the advice that it is a MUST to prebook shuttle bus tickets online. Is this correct? I saw an offer for $14 return. What is the usual price? TQ.
Hello, what is the best prepaid phone card to buy for use in Sydney & its surrounding areas? What is lowest denomination available for sale? Can I buy it at the international airport? TQ.
We have a change of plans because thanks to helpful VTs members, we found out the Blue Mountains is still good to visit despite the forest fire. We am thinking of going directly there from the airport. The cost of a regular return train ticket from the International Airport to Katoomba is $41.40 including airport access fee. I believe it should be more economical for us then, to buy a MyMulti 3 weekly pass that costs $61 + $12.30 (single Gatepass) =$73.30 per person & use it for the journey to & from the Blue Mountains as well as in Sydney for a week. MyMulti 3 pass would be very useful for moving around Sydney, wouldn't it?
Hi, thanks to all who have offered me tips to my earlier question. Unfortunately, I have booked lodgings in Sydney for my whole trip. Not sure if I can cancel it for an overnight stay in Blue Mountains since I will be in Sydney 8 days from now. So I am thinking of a one-day trip. Please suggest an itinerary if I go via (a) train (b) self-drive. In case I can cancel, please suggest a 2-day itinerary too.TQ!
Is it still worthwhile to visit the Blue Mountains after the devastation recently? Tours to this place is expensive so I would like to have accurate information about this. Thank you.

G'day! I have some questions on the Eco Hopper - wanted to visit Taronga Zoo and Watson Bay from earlier research via this forum. Was recommended the Combo ticket for 24hours Eco Hopper and Taronga Zoo
1. Slightly confused on departure point labelled Darling Harbour - there are two points marked as #1 ie Pyrmont Bay and Sealife Acquarium. Which one is actually the starting point??? I am staying near Pyrmont and would like to catch the earliest ride to Taronga Zoo.
2. Does the hop on hop off goes through the entire sequence 1-7? Which means it is best I visit Taronga Zoo, then Watson Bay? Are both doable within the same day?
3. If I use the first ride at 905 AM does that mean my last ride to get onboard is 9AM the next day, regardless I get off at 10AM? (Example only) The following day I might take the morning ferry to Manly, then buy one way ticket back from Manly to Darling Harbour, any word of advise?
4. Are the ferries generally punctual? How far ahead do they start boarding passengers before departure time?
Any useful tips much appreciated! :)

Removalists - who are best in sydney?
I am turning 13 in 2015, which is when I'm moving to Sydney. 13 years old is most probably the worst time to move to a new country, because it is the starting of middle school. I come from a small country in Asia, and now, I'll be moving to Sydney, Australia, which is located in Oceania, not in Asia. Will people there judge me for being Asian, or will I fit in with the Australians there? Because I've heard from some of my friends who have moved to Perth that some racist students in Sydney might judge me for my nationality and race (I'm Chinese). So now I'm worried that I might get teased and not have any friends at all despite being one of the well-known in my form when I was living in Malaysia.
What are the most important things that I need for being in Sydney on December?
How is the weather of Sydney in December?
