Australia in Style - 4th August 2013

Postby sarah_88 » Wed Jul 24, 2013 5:23 pm

Hi there,

I'm Sarah from the UK and will be on the Australia In Style trip starting in Sydney on 4 August. Very excited although first time travelling on my own and to Australia!

It would be great to know others who are booked on this trip too!

Where does your tour take you? I'm wondering if its the same as mine? From Sydney, travelling up the east coast, ending in Cairns?

@Nia I think the first part is the same, but from Cairns we fly to Alice Springs and make our way south to Melbourne.
@Sarah Not much longer now! Very excited here. I'm arriving there on Saturday morning (3 Aug) so that I can do the bridge climb in the afternoon. Too bad more people didn't check in on here, but I guess we'll be meeting them soon enough. See you soon!

Hi Bill,

Yes I'm very excited too. Hope you arrive in Sydney safely on the 3rd. I will be arriving at 9.00 am on the 4th - would love to do the harbour bridge climb too but not sure if I will have time!

Oh I see. That's a shame. Nobody has responded to my post - I wonder if I'm the only one on the tour!!? I arrived in Sydney yesterday and already love the place! I'm due to do the bridge climb on Tuesday!

Hi there, I am departing on this trip on Aug 25 so if any of you can share helpful hints from your trip, I would appreciate it. For example, what to pack - G seems to use the same packing list regardless of destination so I often bring what I don't need and don't have what I do need.
Am also hearing if the bridge climb is worth it and and what the weather is like.

Have fun!

Hi Sarah, hopefully you're here now -- see you @ the meeting tonite!

Nia, how did your bridge climb go last week?

YWG: I did the bridge climb yesterday...beautiful weather and the views were terrific! It's kind of a crap shoot, though...if you book in advance you may not have good weather, but if you wait and try to book a tour on a sunny day, they may be sold out.
