    Backpacking across Australia

    Discussion started by WISE - Jun 15, 2004

    I leave in about two hours.

    I will fly into Sydney, stay with there a week or two, and then two months later I catch a plane back home out of Sydney.

    What happens in the middle is still very wide open.
    What are some cool towns to check out?
    I plan on hitting most of the big cities on the Eastern side of the country.
    Know any cool spots in any of those cities?

    I literally have no plan, so I'm game for anything - tourist stuff, bars, muesums, skate parks, secluded beaches, ski resorts, universities, anything that might lead to a fun time.

    next time I check this I'll be half way around the world, wish me luck.

    in my opinion sydney sux brisbane alright but kinda boring melbournes alright to and thats were i would go to get out to ski resorts.
    for skate parks there every were visit http://www.skateboard.com.au/ they have ratings and pictures for just about every skate park in the country. theres good bars clubs in every city it just depends what your into.seclueded beaches everwere aswell but i would make sure to visit the goldcoast before i left the country.but as for universities we dont have ones like other countries over here there more like schools for adults an noone lives on them im dorms or anything like that.anyway im sure youll have fun.

    Bob - thanks for all the info, I'll be sure to check those spots out. that's exactly the kind of info I'm looking for.

    So far Sydney is cool.
    I've only been here for half a day and have already been to the NSW art museum and walked around downtown, went through hyde park and the gardens...saw a bunch of big ass bats.

    I was really expecting more of a culture shock. Sydney reminds me of a mix between NYC and San Diego, it doesn't feel very foreign. Maybe some of the other cities will. Also the sound that the crosswalk makes when you're allowed to walk sounds like an 80s bboy beat, it pretty dope.

    I plan on hitting up Canberra, Melbourne, Adelade, Alice Springs, Queenslade, fraser island, etc.. working my way back down to sydney.

    I'll make posts along the way, and hopefully if I can figure out how to do it post flicks.
