    • Transfer times at heathrow

      Australia Dec 17, 2016 at 5:00 PM

      I have a ticket from Sydney to London with Cathay pacific. I then bought a separate ticket with BA from London to Newcastle in the U.K. I arrive T1 at 06:20hrs and leave T5 at 09:45... just discovered I have to pick up my luggage at Heathrow  And transfer it. Is there anyway of getting my luggage checked all the way through? I've tried the airline and ticket issuer with no luck and been told it would cost $15000 to reissue a ticket (I go in two days).
      If not is 3 h 20mins long enough a time to do the transfer?

    • 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?

      Hotel and nearby attractions

      by grandmaR Online Now Jan 13, 2012 at 6:15 PM

      I am getting a cruise from Perth (Fremantle) in July 2012, and my travel agent has proposed the Tradewinds Hotel, which doesn't seem to have any listing on VT. The reviews seem mixed, and they are also mixed for the hotel that Cruise Critics recommends which is the Esplanade. The disadvantage to the Eplanade is that they charge for the internet.

      We will be flying in from Sydney, arriving in the early afternoon. The travel agent thinks that we will be better off to have most of the commute from the airport done on the day before the cruise so we will just have a short taxi ride to the ship. Does anyone know any reason why this hotel wouldn't be advisable?

      Left Luggage

      We have a late flight out of Perth in February and would like to know if there are any left luggage facilities in Fremantle which we can use after we check out of our accommodation. We are not staying in a hotel so we can't leave our bags there.

      Perth or Fremantle

      by Vicki-Maree Online Now Aug 11, 2010 at 2:58 PM

      We will be first time visitors to WA in mid January and have only just booked flights. We thought we would stay 2 nights in Perth before picking up a car and exploring. However, I am starting to think it would be better to stay in Fremantle rather than Perth but there doesn't appear to be a great deal of accommodation available or if it is, it is200 plus a night. Does anybody have any suggestions, there are only the 2 of us and we would like to be close to the water.

      Some folk festivals we have been to limit seating to those low beach chairs.

      further to boulters apartment

      by 726jenni Online Now Feb 1, 2009 at 2:42 AM

      Thank you all for great info re apartment in freo.
      we have decided on an apartment in central fremantle and very close to the esplanade reserve, but not in Norfolk st as we thought it may be too noisy.
      Now we really need advice on the best way to get from the airport to Fremantle.
      We would rather not hire a car. Is there a train from the airport or do we get a cab or bus to the city (Perth)and train from there? or is there a bus direct to freo? Would it be expensive to get a cab from aiport to central Fremantle?
      Thanks guys.

      The Model Car Place

      by DaveMullany Online Now Sep 5, 2005 at 2:52 PM

      Greetings. Sorry to prevail upon the wisdom of Australians yet again, but... when last I was in Fremantle, I was taken to a place - a large shed, really - that was packed from end to end with the most astonishing collection of vintage toy cars, trucks, trains, planes, toys and so forth. I'm not making this up; I know I'm not dreaming and I swear I haven't had a frostie for at least 22 minutes. Does is exist? What is it? Where is it? Why is it?

      PS: I'm sure it was near your famous aquarium (the one you walk through while Johnnies (sharks) swim over your head)

      The pub that sells Red Back beer

      by DaveMullany Online Now Sep 4, 2005 at 6:17 AM

      Greetings all. Four of us (South Africans) will be in Freo at the end of this month. I was last there about 12 years ago with some good buddies and we had a rip-roaring time in a pub that sold a beer called Red Back (named after your world-famous spider).

      A few years ago, one of my travelling companions (my best friend, actually) was killed in an air crash, so it would be a sort of pilgrimage for me to find that pub again and lift a glass in his memory. The pub might have been called the Red Back (although I doubt it), or even the Dogbolter (or was that one of the brews we downed . . . I was tired and confused at the time :-). Or maybe it was the Anchor.

      Question is: does it still exist and where in Fremantle is it? I recall it had an amazing shop selling all sorts of beers and pub memorabilia. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers

      I am staying in Fremantle for three weeks with two sons (3 and 8 years)- at the end of July and beginning of August. I'm looking for information about places to eat (suitable for children) and things to do between 8 am and 5 pm. Also, which trips would you recommand me for weekends (to sleep over for a night or two somewhere else, perhaps)? What are the costs for inner flights (eg. if we want to go to Sharks bay)?
      I'll be glad if you give me some tips.
