Hey guys! My boyfriend and I will be travelling for about 2-weeks along the east coast of Australia. I'm hoping you guys can offer some advice on where to go, where to stay, and what to do. As of now, we plan on checking out Cairns, Whitsundays, Airlie Beach, Fraser Island, Byron Bay, Sydney, and Melbourne. Are there any other cities along the east coast that we MUST SEE? Also, does anyone know of hostels to stay at that are clean and safe but affordable? I've done some research online and these places have been recommended:
Cairns Calyspso Backpackers, Caravella Backpackers
Townsville Civic Guesthouse Backpackers Inn
Airlie Beach Bush Village Boutique Backpackers, Backpackers by the Bay
Harvey Bay/Fraser Island Colonial Log Cabins, Friendly Hostel, Fraser Roving
Byron Bay Aquarius Backpackers, Art Factory Lodge
Melbourne Urban Central, Clarement Guesthouse, Greenhouse, Nunnery, Base Backpacker
We're in our early 20s and we're down to do some crazy outdoor stuff! Any recommendations on things to do, places to eat? Thanks to anyone who can provide any sort of helpful information!!!
