Hi guys,

I will be arriving in OZ in a few weeks and can't decide which city to start off in. Is melbourne good for night life and meeting other tavelers, i hear sydney is great with bondi surfrs paradise but I need advise from people who been to both citys so i ca have a better idea where to go first . I'd like to go to a city or somewhere that s lively and has good atmosphere does melbourne have this, or is sydney the place to be for the beach parties etc

Claire ;)

Well if your adventurous you have to go with Sydney. They have a lot of attractions there.

Hi Claire, remember it's winter in Australia at the moment and so the beach isn't that popular as it's too cold. How long are you staying for, will you get to see both cities anyway?

If you're travelling up the east coast then start in Melbourne and head north via Sydney.
