We’re going to Australia!  We haven’t booked yet since we’re so far out, but we’re planning to do 3-4 days in Sydney, and spend 7-8 days in and around Cairns.  My man is really into diving, so he wanted to spend most of our time near the reef. Where are you all going?  Are you going with a tour group or doing your own thing?

OMG soooooo jealous! I too lived there my Jr year abroad… I lived in Wollongong like 90 mins south of Sydney! Definitely get up to Cairns!!! If you have the time Melbourne is awesome and Tasmania was pretty cool too! Have a Tooheys New (beer) for me!

I’m also going to Australia, but as I’m Australian it’s a trip home and a wedding celebration for family and friends who are local, rather than a big holiday — we’re having 2 weeks in the US (NYC and California) followed by two weeks in Australia, mainly southern Queensland where I’m from.

We go every year, so Fiance knows most of the main cities so I don’t feel too guilty about taking two weeks to relax and hang out with friends and family.

lanany10, how long are you in Melbourne for? I used to live there and love it to bits.  I’m also a huge fan of Sydney.

I wish! Definitely jealous 🙂

I don`t think Australia is within our budget; maybe as an anniversary trip later though!

For carry on, check what your airline allows — I think it’s 7kg (not sure what that is in pounds). I’ve never had mine weighed and I’ve always had more than enough room to take everything I need for a 24-hour flight (flying BA and Qantas, mainly).

Melbourne’s fabulous! If it’s a nice day, consider taking the tram down to St Kilda (by the sea) and just poke around the area — it’s a great suburb, lots of cool shops and restaurants, plus the pier is also great to walk along — the day we went to St Kilda was my FI’s favourite of the time we spent in Melbourne a couple of years ago.

The Melbourne Museum is also really, really good if museums are your thing — and Federation Square (near Flinders St Station and just across the bridge from the South Bank) is also good, especially for its art gallery.

If shopping is your thing, head over to Chapel Street in South Yarra — it was brilliant when I lived there.

I want to go back right now, just thinking about it!

Chapel St is awseome.. I try to make it over there once a year. I made it last july, so I dont think Ill get to go this year.

You will love it!! Cairns is great, Hamilton Island even better…

But im a massive fan of sydney and melbourne. Make sure you go up the centre point tower when your in sydney! and visit the sydney opera house!  😀

We’re doing Australia for our Honeymoon as well!  We’re doing just shy of 2 wk, and have already booked our flights & hotels (staying at Thala Beach Resort and Silky Oaks).  Activities are where we’re at now.  I made a post a few days ago asking for recs on reef excursions (think we’re pretty set with our Daintree Rainforest excursion though not yet booked) and a Kuranda day.  Would love to hear what you’re planning while in that region!!
