Australia Comments

Fremantle is a breath of fresh air. It has a quirky vibe, anything goes! Beautiful climate, beaches, historic buildings... Here's my TOP 10 to-do's for Freo: (in no order) 1. Fremantle Markets, get a beer at the market bar and listen to the buskers. 2. Definitely do the night-time Prison tour, its excellent. 3. Go to Little Creatures for a pale ale and frites, you'll love it. 4. Get the ferry to Rottnest Island, its so pretty... but don't feed the quokas! 5. Get a caffeine fix on Cappucino strip, Gino's and Benny's do great coffee. 6. Old Shanghai foodhall opposite markets does great food, cheap (especially Taka's Japanese). 7. Jump on the free bus (it's orange and has CAT written on it). 8. Shopping... cool clothes and jewellery by local designers. 9. Go see a band in the Newport, or DJs in Norfolk. 10. Seafood haven... some os the best in the world (according to the locals!). Go to Fishing boat Harbour, for fish 'n chips.
Launceston is right next to Cataract Gorge, a 150m cut into the rock with the river at the bottom. Literally 10 minutes walk from the city centre and you're in the heart of nature. The city has an adequate bus system during the week, based at St John Street. Always call taxis from payphones instead of mobiles as the numbers otherwise go back to Hobart! Some company runs a $35 Tamar River cruise which is worth checking out. All in all I'd say Launceston is a much nicer, more relaxed city than Hobart and with no shortage of things to see and do. I used Launceston as a start/stop point for the Under Down Under tour also.
Batemans Bay is very far from the beach and attractions -- too far if you do not have transport.
Biloela was a great party town, small but good. Grew up there.
Penrith is a very exciting place to be especially with its beautiful country and ocean views.
For the three days I was in Cairns I realized it's truly beautiful. I suggest that that everyone go snorkeling and/or scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
Hobart is a happening place, with old buildings, tourists, and locals. It has the usual city feel to it, and is lovely to walk around in. Salamanca place is a must. Hiding behind other buildings this is an outdoor area with restaurants and some shops and a big pond. On Friday nights there is the live music by locals in another hidden away courtyard. Here they start early (at about 4 p.m. to about 7:30 p.m.) and they sell some drinks, while you can listen to the local band and even enjoy dancing on the dancing floor if you like.
Kalgoorlie is a place you'll either love or hate. I loved it. It was my home for only 3 months but will always be a part of me.
Nimbin is disgusting. Don't even bother coming here. There are far better places to visit in the region.
Mackay is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.
Geelong is a great gateway to Great Ocean Road. Public transport is available to all beaches and Melbourne. Go to www.geelongotway.org and www.greatoceanroad.org for all tourist info and links to Geelong and the Great Ocean Road.
Brisbane is a fantastic city! We loved our stay here. Brisbane was fabulous - South Bank (wow!) the river (wow) and great feel for a city. We saw some great AFl with the Brisbane Lions too!
Melbourne is a fantastic city, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. There are some beautiful parks in the center of the city, and some lovely galleries and museums. I ended up staying in Melbourne for longer than I originally planned as I found it to be a 'fun' city - great bars and nighclubs, to suit all tastes. Also, Melbourne has some of the best shopping in Australia and the best selection of restaurants, where you can sample food from every corner of the globe. I couldn't believe the selection! If you're thinking about when to visit Melbourne, I would probably recommend going in summer, as temperatures are warmer and a little more stable.
Cardwell is the most beautiful place I may have ever been on Earth! The main street has mountians on one side and a simple, untouched beach on the other! It is in "croc country", so no swimming, but the view is enough to fall in love with Cardwell!! There are cute cafes and wonderful locals. The local Catholic Church is still one of my favorites! Hitchinbrook Island is also another natural beauty in Cardwell. You can take a boat over on Sundays for half price. All in all, Cardwell is a must visit!
I've stayed in Coolangatta twice, and really like the area.
Innisfail is a good place for a stop over and to earn some cash on the fruit picking but hard ass work...
Anglesea has great views of the beach from the lookout, fantastic place to see kangaroos at the Angelsea Golf Course, hundreds of kangaroos.
Mission Beach is a great little beach town. Its away from the hussle and bussle of other tourist areas so one can actually enjoy the place they are at.
Maroochydore is a great place to do fruit picking as it is so close to the beach, has lovely weather, plenty of charity shops, and great drinking holes!
Lorne is one hour from Geelong and approximately 100 minutes from Melbourne. Go to the lookout for fantastic views of the beach and Erskine falls is a must. Plenty of bush walks available.
