Posted:hello! wave

thought i'd better start a thread here.... biggrin biggrin biggrin biggrin biggrin

so i've got 6 weeks left in new zealand eek which is crazy.... and from that moment on i'm gonna be racing around like a mad thing on a stupidly rushed tour of australia before heading to singapore and borneo

i know its short - i wish i could make it longer but after much thinking i dont think there's much i can do... so here it is...

8th july... arrive in melbourne
(fire night on sunday?)

11th-ish head up to sydney - spend time in sydney and stuff... including a couple of days tramping in the blue mountains biggrin

18th-ish Byron Bay - or so i was advised to visit...could change

20th-ish - Brisbane (Moonfest on the 21st biggrin )

23rd fly to perth (such a long way - ah well all fun fun fun)

(perth beach spin? tuesday night - if i dont have to get to airport?)

27th stupidly early flight back to melbourne to connect with plane to singapore.... ubbloco


too make things more entertaining i might have to spend an afternoon in each of the big cities doing research for my dissertation! ubbloco ubbloco ubbloco

but anyway i'm all excited... biggrin biggrin biggrin
bounce bounce bounce

was thinking bout transport.... how easy is hitching?
otherwise maybe the train? (country link trains have a pass thing...?????)
and erm...campsites....i'm sure if i look i'll find the info...

any comments, ideas, places to visit or people to come see biggrin hug biggrin .....

hug

Posted:Make sure you get in touch when you are in Syd!!! Actually, it is kind of a shame you are not arriving a week sooner. I have just got a new job, which starts on the 11th, but I have a week off beforehand. I could have beem mostly yours!!!

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

Posted:Byron is nice.The beaches are beautiful and on most tourists' list of places to 'do'. It's also winter. Which makes it less crowded (to many minds more attractive) but less beachtastic. The town itself is mostly touristic and avoidable unless you're into meeting other backpackers/ shopping for clothes/jewellery/homewares and assorted trinkets.

I guess it all comes down to your own interests.. a local type spinny meet in a moderately interesting city, or strolling miles down gorgeous mindexpanding beaches and having chilly dips before a backpacker cafe experience! That sounds sarcastic.. Not intended! If you do go to Byron the Arts Factory is an interesting place to stay and they sometimes have fire things there... the hinterland, the hills inland of Byron are really lovely.. depends a lot if you have a car..... Would you bus to Byron?
