So im going to Australia for the first time, do you guys have any suggestions on what I should do. Any good places that I should visit?

Are you serious? It's a huge continent, there is no shortage of information, and you don't even tell us where you are going and when and for how long and why? Have you not at least looked at some travel videos, read some books, looked at some websites? Would you ask "I'm going to North America, where should I go"?

There are many people here, Bebo, who would be happy to give useful advice, but we need much more from you....when are you going, what's your budget, how long do you have, what are your interests, do you have any idea of what part of the country (huge indeed) you'd like to see?

Some preliminary research on your part is essential; then we can really help!

A reasonable starting point for you may be ..." I'm going to Australia because ...."

Assuming you are not being dragged here in shackles as many of our first "tourists" were - what was it about Australia that engendered an interest to come here!

As Libretto says, there are lots of people on this forum who could give you an enormous amount of useful information. However, without any indication of your interests, where you are going, how long you will be here or when, frankly the " Bother Factor" comes into play. For me, at least.

Why would I bother trying to guess all of the most important factors about a visitor in order to help them plan a trip, when they can't be bothered to tell us even the most basic information?

So, if you tell us something about your interests, timeframe a etc., you may get some great info. Otherwise, best I can suggest is that you buy yourself a guidebook.

The traditional route is Sydney, Cairns, Uluru and / or Great Ocean Road.

Hi there... I'm an Aussie and happy to make suggestions but like the other's have said above, we need more info to give advice as Australia is HUGE.

What an exciting trip!
