Traveling to Australia
Posted 13 April 2013 - 02:40 PM
I'm heading to Aussie in 2 weeks with a good buddy of mine. We are flying into Brisbane and have 3 weeks down under... (Could only get 3 weeks off of work)
Any advice from people who have travelled there?
Anything I should bring in particular besides a power converter, passport, electronic visa, cash and cards?
We will be hitting up the Golden Coast, Byron Bay, Surfer's Paradise, Fraser island and Cairns.
Unfortunately, the Aussie Dollar is strong right now which kind of sucks.

In all seriousness though I'm pretty jealous. Maybe hit up New Zealand while you're in the area.
Paradise with pines and ice.

I hate to say it but aside from us being polite as can be Australians are much easier people to meet.

"I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I knew nothing about NHL GL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago. I was unattached to any team when I first started watching although I could easily have gone for the Philadelphia Flyers as my home team which I supported in my youth and for 20 years was the Fife Flyers."
