    Canadian Pre Paid data plans

    Now that I am here. I know the answer to my question. Rogers is the main player. Data is extremely expensive in Canada and will not work very well in the Yukon. As I am driving up the Alaskan Hwy, this was very important. The Yukon is on CDMA, so most plans do not work here. Most of the visitor centres have free WIFI which is great and usually solves this issue. over 6 years ago

    As a visitor to the US from Australia, when l arrive, can I buy a cell phone with SIM card and prepaid voucher to use when there?

    Yes but not if you want to tether ie use a smart phone as a modem. You can get very cheap and basic phones in Walmart. Verizon and AT&T have the best coverage, so it depends on where you are going to be travelling. In the US both parties pay for the call or the SMS. over 6 years ago

    Melbourne to Perth road trip. What do you think?

    Melbourne to Perth will take you at least a week or you could stretch it out to weeks. It takes 3 days to cross the Nullarbor alone. The Great Ocean Road is better than America's Big Sur because you are driving right next to the sea and there is no fog to contend with. The Nullarbor is between Adelaide and Norseman - it means treeless plains and they aren't kidding - there is nothing out there. There are a few road houses along the way so you can get some meals. No where to buy food though, so go prepared. Be careful about taking certain foods across the border at Ceduna, check out the quarantine rules on the web. South West WA (Western Australia) is beautiful - lots to see, then make your way up through Margaret River to Perth. It's a great trip and something unique to Australia. over 6 years ago

    Is Australia in May romantic for a honeymoon?

    It depends on where you want to go. Australia is as big as America. May is the month before winter, at the end of Autumn - so it's a lovely time of year in most places. Cool nights and pleasant days, certainly not hot. Being Autumn, there is less rain than winter or spring. almost 7 years ago

    Would I get charged by customs if I bought a new projector into Australia?

    You are supposed to declare the combined value of all purchases bought from overseas and any duty free bought in Australia (prior to leaving) upon entering Australia. I have just checked the card you fill in upon entry. The $1000 is for when you have it posted to Australia. about 7 years ago
