where to stay/trip ideas

Jump to last reply

about a month ago I placed a post re: places to stay in Sydney ( i am going for 28 days mid-march to mid-april).

the response I got were great: Travelodge, Napoleon on Kent, YHA Hostel with ensuite.
I ended up making a reservation for 108/night at the YHA. 50/wk for broadband.

However, I recently discovered STAYZ and emailed a placed with a studio apartment on wattle street. They claim its 105/night and free wifi. also has tv etc with kitchen dishwasher. Its cheaper rate overall with better amenities than the YHA.

The reason I choose the YHA is its good location (near central sta) as I will be commuting 3-4 days/week to Cambpelltown (univ of western syd) for some work over 3 wks and I figured a decent tour desk.

This 28 day trip is also time for me to explore Australia. Planned on using apt/hostel as base and travel around country.
During the week I was planning on exploring Sydney: Bondi, Manly, climb harbour brisge, opera house, zoo. Will try a day tour to fit Blue Mnts in to see 3 sisters.

On the weekends I was planning on traveling to:
1) Melbourne (see Phillips Island and Great Ocean Road). probably via tours.
2) Uluru: will stay @ voyages and take aborigne tour. Will NOT climb Uluru due to signifcance. Will tour base, sounds of silence, and sunrise tour.
3) Port DOuglas: GBR/Daintree/Cape Trib. I figure I would use wavelength reef as I dont scuba, they only snorkel. Will take a tour to Cape trip/daintree and try to add in the rail/skyway near carins. wanted to add in a trip to Cooktown as there was a cool tour offered by Guurbitours (but don't think it will fit).

Anyway I am interested people's thoughts on where to stay and tour ideas.
