Im going to Australia!!!

Actually noticed quite a few Australians here -- I will be going March 19th - April 6th with a buddy. Prolly Melbourne - Sydney and everything inbetween. Any reccomendations to fun stuff and bars/pubs -- drunken wild evening type things...

God I cant wait --

if you fart and no one hears it -- did you really fart?

Im going to Australia!!!

thats awesome that ur going!

i'm so jealous! i want to go back!

i went last january and it was the greatest experience of my life. if u want to see photso let me know.

we went for 3 weeks and stayed up along the eastcoast of the country, it was absoutly amazing.

the zoo in melbourne, the museums, the markets in melbourne--both cities have a very different feel--syndey felt more city like to me, melbourne felt older--

syndey check out the opera house, the harbor bridge, cokley bay in syndey has some good places to eat and explore, the aquarium, the syndey tower etc etc etc

im me and i can give you more if u want.

how long will u be there for? i was there for 3 weeks.

***warning***

Once you come here, you wont go home...

But seriously, if you're in Sydney, the bridgeclimb is well worth it - I've done it twice.

Pretend I just said something Important...

i wanted to do the bridge climb so badly when i was in australia, but it was really expensive, but i have heard its worth every penny.

and you are right, once u go you never want to come back--i am counting the days until i can go back.

Melbourne represent, I suggest going to Stkilda beach and go and see one of 100's of bars in this one area. Very Alternative feel, and heaps of sexy chicks. Also
Shopping saturday on Chapel St, has the best shopping in Australia, and the even hotter girls and cars. Worth a look. Enjoy

Strato Blue, SP23, Formula 1 tint 35%, raised wing, AT, sp23 mats, and more to come.............................................. ..............

Go to an AFL match, you'll get to see the great Aussie Rules game! The '05 season starts on the 24th, go see a match at the MCG (the place of the 2006 Commonwealth games, still under renovation) or the great Telstra Dome

I love the Telstra Dome, it's an amazing sight. Tickets for general admission are around $20.

(Woot for free plug for the AFL)

Carn the Bombers!

I live in Brisbane so... too far north for where you're coming =( Going to The Gold Coast region is worth it though if you're coming to Aus... and I'd be happy to show you around if you do go to the Gold Coast [about 12 hours drive north of Sydney]
