HI,

We have booked a campervan space with power for 5 nights 185 AUD

I just hope we find the campervan of our dreams when we arrive. We arrive Brisbane mid November

15 weeks and 2 days days until our journey begins SEA first stop

Can't wait

Aww this camping sounds like a great idea :) I really had never thought of camping. Have to mention it to the other half and see what he thinks!!

Also just wondering....when u book a hostel for xmas or NY do u have to pay in advance? If u do can u cancel later without losing money?

Think it varies between hostels, the few I've been in touch with have given different answers. One wanted the full payment up front, another wanted 25% payment now (not sure when full payment was) and another took card details now, but with the full payment taken in Nov.
Be sure you want to book/stay there because two of them said the booking was non-refundable (I guess most of them will be the same), so I doubt you'd get your money back.

Hello,

I would be up for that! I have no clue what i am doing yet and I may be on my own but it is looking more likely that my mate will be with me - so that could be three of us...I am not sure how big you can get them! It is very exciting!! Haha! x

hello,

im travelling to sydney in nov and am planning to spend xmas and NY in sydney before moving on round the rest of oz, people have said to book my hostel now as they get very busy. Have been told the rocks is the best just tried to book it but website says not taking bookings for NY until 1st may.
Wondered if anyone knows how long the max stay is there will i be able to do xmas and NY at the same hostel?

thanks

Hey,

Yea that's the one I looked at and I got the same respone. I was told that there is a 5 night minimum stay, I am not sure about the max but i am sure you will be fine to stay for both xmas and NY.

I will want to find somewhere that will accomodate me for the whole period as I don't want to be messing about. I will be in Oz from Sept, I am working my way down the East coast from Cairns to Melbourne then heading back upto Sydney to stay as a base until I head to NZ. I may find accomodation that will accomodate me for a long period of time including xmas and NY but I don't think I can take the risk....I would like to have something booked for the festive period if I can but it will also depend on price!
