      First visit to Perth in September

      Perth Jul 2, 2016 at 12:38 PM

      I am planning my trip to Perth in September.

      Please let me know if it will be good time for wine tours? Shall I do a DIY self drive tour or join a tour? Advice appreciated.

      I plan to spend 6 days in the city (sightseeing mostly). This is a family trip with children (less than 5 years old) so I thought of Perth Zoo, Caversham Wildlife Park - please suggest what else would be good to see in the city / day excursion from city.

      Thereafter a couple of us (adults) are planning to extend the trip for another 6 days and drive the Indian Ocean Drive / visit national parks. Please suggest an itenary.

      Thank you very much! =)

      I will be going to Perth in early October and I would like to ask whether the wildflowers at Kings Park in Perth are really wild like ie whether the flowers are spread out all over a large area and not just cultivated in small bushes. Would I have to go further to other parks to see a larger profusion of wild flowers. Thank you.

      How valid is ETA Visa ? Is booking a domestic flight seat a necessity ?

      Melbourne Jul 1, 2016 at 3:40 AM

      1. I applied for the ETA Visa for 2 Malaysian International Passport, the approval was fast, after only 30 minutes, I received the reply email given to us a simple reference number for the ETA Visa approval. Any member from ETA eligible nations know how reliable the ETA Visa approval is ?
      2. I booked Tigerair for 11 Oct 2016 domestic flight Sydney to Melbourne on 30 March, I did not book the seat until today. Today I login again, I found no one book the seat as all 30 rows of seat are all available. Is booking a domestic flight seat a necessity ? Tigerair charge A$5 per seat for standard seat.
      Thank you.

      Big Sydney Meet in October - Are you coming?

      Sydney Jul 1, 2016 at 3:08 AM

      Hey all. Well it's only 3 months until the next Aussie meet, this time in Sydney - early October. Numbers this year have fallen. I guess that is because of the current economical climate and declining regulars here on VT.
      So now we have 21 signed up. We are excited to have vt'ers from Florida, UK and Malaysia join us! And we are equally excited to show you guys around :o)
      Second part of the meet is the first ever VT Cruise. We will be sailing out of the stunning Sydney Harbour early morning on the Cruise ship, Carnival Spirit for an 8 night cruise to the islands of the South Pacific. Imagine a bunch of fun loving VT'ers on a Cruise ship...... ok..... you can stop imagining now.... lol ;o)
      We have 11 signed up for that which is a fine crowd :o)
      Ok.... my question is...... Are you thinking of joining us?
      If so, we would like for you to think seriously about this and let me know for the Sydney bit and TheTravelSlut know for the cruise bit. Gauging from your responses, we will then make some final decisions in relation to day trips and costs etc.
      So I guess you have been itching to see the links with all the info? ...

      Ann :o)

      Planning a solo holiday from the beginning of November 2016.

      Australia Jul 5, 2016 at 4:57 AM

      Hi all,
      Planning to fly Manchester UK to Dubai and stay 3 nights.
      Fly Dubai to Cairns and stay 4 nights.
      Fly Cairns to Sydney and stay 6 nights.
      Fly Sydney to Bangkok and stay 3 nights.
      Fly Bangkok back home to Manchester.
      Are the number of nights shown enough to see the most popular sights and would you consider it worthwhile to include Darwin in the itinerary?

      Thank you,
