Posted:Ok, I'm after a bit of assistance from people who live in or have been to Australia and/or New Zealand.

I'm looking to have a few weeks down that way at someo point next year, the only problem being, what time of year to travel??

Is it noticeable cheaper during the off peak season? If so, what is the off-peak season?

Ideally I'd rather not be there in mid summer, I'd melt in a drippy pool on the steps coming off the plane, I don't want to have to explain that to an irate pilot! ubblol

Also, let me know what places you'd suggest that I visit so I can try and organise some kind of list of to do's.

Cheers peeps!

hug

Oh dear god. there is going to be a famine in Oz and NZ in May. Locust Bird is landing and all the food will vanish like an old oak table!



vanished, not varnished, oh loving the blackadder quote smile
