hey thanks all for your responses to previous post
i was wondering what people know about adventure activites in australia, specifically around the sydney area- for example is white water rafting, and canoeing etc available in this area
Also does anyone know how much it costs to get from sydney to the whitsundays, or one of these islands- do you usually catch a plane or ferry? if so which is cheaper?
Finally, are there actually any islands around the whitsunday area that are excellent for parties and where youths are in summer?
also are there hostels in the sydney area? and cheap accomodation in whitsundays?
i suggest you visit the NSW tourism website - they should have some listings. The address is www.visitnsw.com.au. They have an adventure and outdoor section and might be able to give you some indication of what's available at the very least.
I went to great keppel island in queensland a couple of years ago...its a contiki island so 18 - 35s pretty much. was good fun actually. the best way to get up north is fly: check out www.webjet.com.au or the individual airlines, www.virginblue.com.au, and www.qantas.com.au
hope this helps!
