    • Trip to Northern territory at Feburary.

      Australia Dec 26, 2016 at 5:25 PM

      Hi. I'm planning a trip to the Northern territory in January 30 to Feburary 13. I heard that this is a summer season in Australia, and extremely warm. I try to endure the high temperatures, but what I really worried about is rain, and cloud, and activity restriction.

      so my question is,
      1. During this period, will rains and clouds make me unable to see sunrise, sunset and the night sky in red center?
      2. There is a high possibility that activities (trekking at kings canyon, Uluru, kata Tjuta, etc.) will be prohibited?

      Myki card purchase

      Melbourne Dec 20, 2016 at 2:02 AM

      When visiting Melbourne on Boxing Day I will need to either update my existing card or get a new one. The one I have is 3 or 4 years old, is there a way for me to see how much credit remains on it? I typed in the number on the Myki website but the number was not recognised. If I buy a new one at Tullamarine, does it take long using a machine?

      I notice that there is a single ticket and a 2-section ticket for the Adelaide Metro, what is the difference? And can I buy them both at the airport itself?

    • Need help to plan my travel to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island

      by RashmiJK Online Now Jun 7, 2012 at 2:26 AM

      Hello

      We are planning for a holiday trip to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island.
      Would it be a good place to visit for a 4 year old kid?

      Perhaps, if someone could help me with the following questions, it would be of a great help to plan my travel.

      1. How many days would it require to cover all the wildlife attractions around Adelaide?

      2. What are the best value hotels to stay in Adelaide and Kangaroo Island, perhaps around any Indian restaurants?

      3. Would anyone please help me to list must see attractions especially wildlife attractions?

      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?

      5. Are there any guide book, website or an trustable agent recommended?

      6. What are the upcoming events in this season?

      I really appreciate your help.
