Going to Melbourne, sydney, Gold Coast from 26 Jan to 6 feb. Any recommendations on food, accommodations and tourist attractions?
Low priced motel (preferably AUD$100 and below)
I am from singapore, hoping to visit Australia during late January. What would be the temperature liked over these places. I would plan to spend 4 days each on 1 cities.
Is the cabs very expensive in these cities.
Are there free wireless signal in Starbucks or coffeebean
Melbourne: longrain.com.au; check out the Acland St in St Kilda; For Breakfast I love Andiamo's on De Grave St.
Sydney: I dont know many places but can recommend www.kingsleys.com.au/sydney.htm
Gold Coast: Mario's in Broadbeach, Lots of nice Restaurants on Tedder Avenue, Little Beans at Nobby's Beach
Attractions: Melbourne: Muesum, Melbourne Aquarium, spend an afternoon in St Kilda, Discover all the Lane ways in the City
Sydney: the southern end of the royal botanic gardens is the perfect palces for views of the harbour and Opera House
Gold Coast: Wet'n'Wild Water World is one of the best water parks in the world! the beaches are amazing - instead of Surfers Paradise, drive 20 mins or hop a bus to Burliegh Heads.
Free Wifi - Many Cafe's offer free wifi - in Queensland there are many Zarafas Coffee Shops that will have you connected. Also every McDonalds has free wifi for guests. about 9 years ago
SWyber pretty much answers your questions, accommodation varies greatly depending on where you want to stay, city wise it will be more expensive so maybe look at a backpackers or wotif.com a bit later in the year.
Weather wise...it is summer so expect it to be hot, the heat in Melbourne and Sydney is different from the heat on the Gold Coast so expect dry heat in Melbourne and Sydney and sticky hot heat on the Gold Coast. Be prepared for the unpredictable weather in Melbourne but overall it will be warm. about 9 years ago
Im from sydney and accomodation wont be cheap, same as melbourne as the aust open finals should be that time.
If you are looking at backpackers, wake up is pretty good on george street near central station
Weatherwise, end of jan is hot... Im pretty sure for this yr there was a few days over 37 in sydney near end of jan.
For taxi, its alot more expensive than singapore. Its so hard to find a cab in singapore cause its so cheap, unlike here where its vacant everywhere cause its so expensive about 9 years ago
