Hi there, was wondering where is best to start if we plan to be in Oz in August - obvously we want the best of the weather but would also like to be in Sydney for New Year. Will be booking flights shortly and wondering where is best to start.

our intention is to buy a camervan when we get there also and unsure if its just best to start in Sydney to buy the van and just spend New Years elsewhere probably up the East Coast somewhere as dont plan to stay in Sydney for 5 months!? Plan is to do a year and travel all the way round.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

hi bex
i would fly straight to cairns get your van and head down the coast that way to get the rest of the dry season up there and work your way down south that way you will be in between both seasons on the way down south.
cheers stu:)

yeah def start up north. weather is great that time of the year, plus you can go in the water without worrying about jellyfish that time of the year.
