      Hello VT members, I am from India and traveled Asian countries only. Now I want to apply for Tourist visa for Australia. This time I and 2 of my friends wants to apply. Agents are really charging very high fee for tourist visa. We can use that fee amount for our air-ticket if we can get our visa our self.

      I check Immi.gov.au and gone through check list for subclass 600.

      Please let me know if subclass 600 is right visa for me as I want to travel for 2 week. Should I apply for
      visa with my friends together and mention in file out them or we have to apply separately. how to get itinerary
      before getting visa, as if we are booking tickets and hotel then in case visa rejection we ll have great loss.

      I am married and have wife and two kinds they are not accompanying me same is with my friends, they are also going alone. Please help to get visa so that we can have good holiday in AUSTRALIA.

    • Should I rent a campervan or not?

      I'm going to Byron Bay for the Easter weekend, now I can't decide if I should rent a campervan or not? I am going to watch Bluesfest [http://www.bluesfest.com.au/] but most of the campsites are sold out. I read this blog that mentioned the bluesfest [blog.vroomvroomvroom.com/201...] so i decided to check out their list of campervans, now I am not sure if it is a wise idea to hire one or just book a hotel. However, I know that most hotels are quite far from the venue. Can anyone help me decide?

      Daintree Rainforest Visit with a 1 year old

      State of Queensland Apr 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi VTers!

      I have been doing a lot of reading on the Daintree Rainforest. Little did I know that there are so many different areas to explore! It seems like these all offers different things to see in the rainforest, but my main concern is that we will have a 1 year old with us. I am trying to determine if there is an area that will be easier for us to visit with him. We will most likely have to carry him. As much as we would like to do a hike through the rainforest, I don't think that will be possible, but we would definitely like to see as much of the environment as we can.

      Cape Tribulation has caught our eye, but the Daintree Discovery Centre and Mossman Gorge Center also sound like they provide good options for traveling with a young child.

      We will have a rental car 4WD. 

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks so much, Kimberly

    • Breaking our journey on the Indian Pacific

      Port Pirie Feb 21, 2014 at 12:45 PM

      We are contemplating getting off the train at Gladstone (or another suitable stop) and either hiring a car or joining a tour (if such things exist) to spend a few days in the Flinders Ranges. It seems like we could save 9 hours of travel, by not going into Adelaide and back to Port Pirie on the train) and get a head start on going to the Flinders (and spend time in Port Pirie, of course) when we come back to catch the train onwards to Perth.

      Are there local buses or some other way of getting the 30km from Gladstone to Port Pirie? where presumably we could pick up a rental? Obviously, if it took too long to get ourselves to Port Pirie, then we might as well stay on the train.

      Any thoughts anybody?

      Where to go?

      I have lived in Adelaide for 10 years and I have seen a fair amount of places so far including the Flinders Ranges, Whyalla, Port Hughes, Robe and of course heaps of places close to Adelaide (Hahndorf, Barossa, McLaren Vale, Victor Harbor, Rapid Bay etc).

      My aunt is visiting from the US for a few weeks and we are thinking of going away somewhere for 3 nights, preferably less than a 4 hour drive from Adelaide since we have an infant (3 adults plus 1 infant). Looked at KI but it's too expensive with ferry and accommodation.

      My husband and I are planning to take our 10 month old daughter to Kangaroo Island in March 2014 for 5-7 days. We will be taking the car ferry (we live in Adelaide). Can you recommend which part of KI is best to stay? We want to base ourself in one place. We plan to mostly self-cater meals, but with the occasional meal out. Any recommendations are welcome. Cost is not a major issue, but always after value for money. We will probably do a lot of bush walking and lazing on a beach. Not so much going to organised wildlife tours (penguins and birds).

      We are planning to drive the Oodnadatta & Birdsville Tracks with another couple in June 2014. Friends have a 4WD we have a 2WD.
      Just want to know if June is the best time to consider this trip. I have read that we should not consider October - April.
      We have 4 weeks available all up for our outback adventure and hope to see other areas as well, but the main reason for going is to do both tracks.
      I have already read a lot of good tips and the weather around June is our main concern as we don't want to come across a creek and find it is so deep that we can't cross. Any information would be most.

I've also heard that public transportation is limited on KI and the tours don't pick up at every B&B/hotel, etc. We are interested in wildlife, sandboarding, water activities, and the rocks. Where would be the best place for us to stay in order to meet up with a tour?

      4. To know about budget car rental places would be of a great help. Also could anyone please let me know how the prices are for renting a car?
