Although we are yet to sort ourselves out with places to stay etc my friend and I have got the important things sorted and got ourselves tickets to the Big Day Out concert in Melbourne at the end of January.
Has anyone been to one of these before and have any tips for us?! Also, we'll be heading to Sydney the day after the show - has anyone got any places we should go to/good places to stop and stay on the journey to Sydney
Any helpful tips appreciated

We were going to drive I think. Maybe get a campervan and then drive back to Sydney over 5 days stopping along the way. These plans arent set in stone yet though.

Hi Vix & Natt,

The Big Day Out is held in various Australian cities. I've been to a couple, and had a great time.

The Australia Day long weekend is at the end of January, so everyone is really in party mode.

Have fun !!!!
