Hi there, As some of you know, I am now living in Sydney for work and should be here until March next year - I've got a car and would like to make the most of my time out here so I am planning a roadtrip with me and my best mate who is coming over to visit in early December. Here's the plan so far: http://bit.ly/2WoOWA Now without directing this forum post directly to Fox (who I know has just done a very very similar trip) I would really like to get some collective OcUK knowledge together to help me plan my trip better. I am looking to spend 2 full weeks (and 3 weekends) doing this trip and want to know if 1) this is a realistic route for such a time duration and 2) if there is any better trips to do (Such as driving to Cairns and back)? Whilst I'm at it, I'd also really appreciate any advice on hostels/hotels - should I book them *all* in advance? should I aim to stick to main towns, where should I stay basically! My budget is probably low-mid - I don't want to be sleeping on the floor for $10 a night but I don't mind shared bathrooms + hostel style bunk rooms - probably up to $50 or so a night. Cheers!
