I've always wanted to go to Australia, so last night I just went ahead and added it to my Bucket list and started planning my trip. My friend Laura from Los Angeles goes once a year and talks about how wonderful it is. I started at this website to make all my arrangements. It is who Laura used. When in Sydney, I would stay at the Y Hyde Park. It is withing walking Distance of ChinaTown, the Opera House, and the Rocks and it's only $32 per night.
Then I would fly to Pert and stay at City Waters Perth hotel which is right on the banks of Swan River. Once again, no need to rent a car. Everything is close by. A little more expensive though at $86. a night. But this website always has bargain destinations and last minute bookings.
Then on to Melbourne where I would stay at the Kingsgate hotel. This is fun one as it is in walking distance to the Crown Casino.
My last stop is to be Brisbane. Here I would stay at the Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort. This is the beach part of my ten day trip. Surrounded by crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. It is a short cruise from Brisbane. Then I fly home.
I am so glad Laura told me about this site. You should check it out and plan your dream vacation to Australia. Of course in my notebook, mine is a lot more detailed than what I wrote here. They give awesome details about every hotel in Australia along with pictures. I mean everything, from the cheapest backpackers hotels to the 5star hotel.
So where is your dream vacation? Have you planned it out on paper or is it still in your head?
