im off for 3 months (land in brisbane, pack to sydney, fly to cairns, pack to brisbane for return flight) from sept 18 to dec 16. just a small concern about whether i should prebook hostels for my stay as its closer to xmas and i know it gets pretty crazy for bookings
Ive found that it really starts to get busy once you hit the 20th, so you should be okay.
It might be an idea to line up a few places to stay in each area if one is full and dont be afraid to send your first choice an email asking how busy they are and if they reccommend you booking.
Hostels start to get expensive during December. Have you checked the price for when you want to stay?
Is camping an option? Great value if there is more than one of you.
