    Visa required for Australian to visit Iguazu Falls in Brazil?

    Yes you do. They are pretty hardcore about it as well. If you do get a visa. At your entry point into Brazil you will get a piece of paper that you will need to make declarations that you are not carrying "bad" things. Make sure you keep this with your passport. Basically it is Australia's fault because Brazil has a reciprocity policy with visa. As Australia requires Brazilians to have a visa for any length of time then Brazil requires the same for Australians. about 10 years ago

    international student seeking "university" courses in "land of Aussies". Where to find 1 semester courses eq... ?

    Well are you looking to get courses recognised in your University? Or are you looking to just do a semester of courses in Australia for your own personal development? If you are looking to get courses recognised from a Norway institution you will need to find a University with an exchange agreements with an Australian institution. For example UTas has an agreement with Tromso University about 10 years ago

    What should one do if you have a day to travel from Hobart to Freycinet - any good stopovers/diversions?

    Just take your time. It takes a few hours if you go straight there but you can take a day. Just pull off the road occasionally when you see a good view or need a break. I would say start at Sorell Fruit Farm (fresh fruit that you can go and pick yourself). Richmond is a bit out of the way unless you head through the midlands which is boring in my opinion. Kates Berry Farm if you want to continue the fruit trend is in Swansea. Other good food places around Tassie can be found here http://www.foodtourist.com/ftguide/Content/I2080.htm about 10 years ago

    What are the best plans or pre-paid mobile phone plans with data?

    In the end I got TMN prepaid For 8€ I got the SIM + free internet for a month + 5€ credit I had some problems with the internet (they stuffed up and didnt give me free internet for a bit, but they gave me 6€ credit to make up for it). TMN people don't really know how to use phones that they don't sell. Most of which come with settings already. To use the internet on Android you just need to create an APN called internet with the server "internet" This site should also help with other networks. http://www.unlocks.co.uk/gprs_settings.php#portugal over 10 years ago
