      Public transport

      Sydney Sep 10, 2015 at 10:56 PM

      Hi from South Australia, checking some websites it appears you are changing to a different format. Once I arrive at Central from the airport, where can I buy the Seniors day pass? If i want the new Opal ticket for Seniors does it apply to interstate visitors? Looking at the web it seems to include only NSW card holders.

      My Hotel is near a light rail stop so I will be using that but also need to use a bus or suburban train.

      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!

      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?

    • Rottnest and Perth in the Winter (July)

      Perth Jul 8, 2015 at 2:23 AM

      Visiting Perth this month in a little over a week with my fiance and we'll be visiting Rotto but we would like to do some snorkeling. How is the water in terms of being rough or manageable during July? We hear there will be more marine life due to a southerly warm current that passes by Rotto.
      Also on a more general note, we've never been to Perth in the winter so we've no idea to what extent do we need to prepare winter clothing. Any suggestions would be great, we have fleece jumpers and the sort. Would this be enough or should we pack something a little more heavy duty?
      Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!!

      Hi, my friend and I ( both females) are traveling to Perth on the coming 24th-27th July. As we only managed to squeeze out 4d3n for the trip, we would like your kind advice on the following :

      1. Given our time constrain, Is the following itinerary feasible?

      Day 1: kings park

      • (arriving Perth @ 1730hrs)

      Day 2: Caversham + Nambung national park
      Day 3: Fremantle
      Day 4: Perth city ( Bell Tower, the Perth Mint...etc)

      • return flight @ 1830 hrs

      Are there any points of interests not to be missed that can be slotted in, other than those mentioned above?

      2. In terms on accommodation, We are currently looking at Hyat/ Duxton/ Hilton/ Holiday Inn/ The Nest on Newcastle. May I know which one is better and more conveniently located, based on our itinerary above?

      Thank you so much in advance!

      Hello, we are 4 bestfriends who will be traveling to Perth from Oct27-Nov5 (10days&9nights). We are on a tight budget. Our budgets are approx $1000 each. Or less.
      We need advice/suggestions/ recommendations on:
      -travel sequence & activities (as we will be staying for quite sometime, where should we go first, and what are some free or low cost activities we can do? We're planning to go to Rottnest..should we stay there for a night or 2??)

      -accomodations ( we've searched online and through websites such as airbnb but we have problem finding the right locations for us to stay as we do not have our travel sequence planned out yet. We're also not sure to stay at one place the whole time we're there or change as we move along?)

      -transportations (could you suggest the cheapest ways for us to go around perth while we move along from one place to another?)

      We are really new at planning our own trips, your help would really help us a lot. Please & thank you :)
