    • Exchanging GBP for AUD

      Perth Nov 26, 2014 at 6:19 AM

      Hi guys,
      I am planning on visiting Australia for the first time in Jan next year and I need some advice on where to exchange some sterling for some dollars.

      Generally I have been told and actually have experienced that you get a better buying rate of the local currency when buying locally in the country you are visiting.
      Is this still the case for Aus? Currently you get around 1.7 dollars for a pound here in the UK.
      Can anyone give a rough idea of what the exchange rate in Aus is?

      Also do the foreign exchange bureaus accept travellers cheques?

      I have looked into using a credit card or debit card but there are usage fees and non-sterling fees which i am trying to avoid.

      Thanks in advance!

    • 7 Day Stay in Perth

      Perth Dec 4, 2014 at 7:14 AM

      Hi! I'm a Singaporean girl, 21 years old, going to Perth in January 2015 with two friends. I'm wondering how much I should budget for a week's holiday?

      Accommodation is accounted for as I'll be staying with a family friend. We are planning to go to Fremantle, Caversham Wildlife Park, Hillary's Boat Harbour, Watertown Brand Outlet Centre, London Courts, Cottlesloe and Coogee Beach. At least, that's the items on our list now but it's open to change!

      I don't plan on doing much shopping apart from token souvenirs here and there, and I'm not too big a spender on food... I've been told by a close friend who lives in Perth that I have to budget around $25 for a meal there, is that true? It's my first time travelling with people who aren't family so I'm a bit lost, sorry!

      Please advise! Thank you!:)

    • Local guides in Kalbarri?

      Kalbarri Dec 5, 2014 at 7:14 PM

      If I have all the required permits from DPAW and the Museum of WA, are there any local guides who can help me reach the Zuytdorp wreck site from the NW Highway and down the Vermin Proof Fence?
      I can probably do it fine alone, but some local knowledge is always good.
      (I can't go via the Murchison House Station property in January because they're mustering)
      Thanks

    • 9 Days 8 nights - Western Australia

      Perth Aug 27, 2014 at 2:30 AM

      Hi, I am travelling in Oct with two toddlers age 1 and 3. My plans is to rent a car at Perth airport and travel as follows:
      1) a night at bunburry - visit bunbury wildlife. Is it worth going?
      2) two nights at Mageret river
      3) travel to busselton - visit the jetty
      4)Visit Penguin island then travel to swan valley for a night
      5) rest of the days in perth city, return car.

      Questions -
      a) Is the itineary covers most of the interesting places?
      b) Am i missing any of the farm stay? Cos the usual farm stays require 2 nights but most of my places I am staying only for one night, except for MR, but I thought of staying at an apartment in MR instead.
      c) read through the forum, no one mentioned about penguin island, is it worth going?
      d) In perth city i will go public, staying around St George, is the public transport nearby and accessible to the places of interest in the city?

      Any other suggestions or comments on my plan is most welcome. Hope to hear some ideas. Thanks.

      Exmouth Jul 5, 2014 at 10:49 AM

      Hi everyone,
      My husband and I are from England and beginning in September we are starting a round the world trip for 3 months to celebrate my 70th birthday.
      As part of the trip we are traveling in WA for 5 weeks hiring a camper van for that period.
      Our intention is to travel from Perth to Exmouth and back. From what I have read the West coast is not highly populated and I was wondering about buying petrol and the towns where we can buy it, wouldn't want to run out that would be a nightmare.
      Also what are the best places to stock up on food and supplies.
      Should we book our campsites before we go or will this not be a problem booking as we go.
      We pick up the van on the 29th October for 5 weeks.
      Our main interests are snorkeling and walking.
      Oh we are not allowed to take our campervan off unsealed roads but would love to get some walking in the national parks.
      Any advice and suggestions for our trip would be highly appreciated.
      Jean
