Hi All,

Are there any specific backpacking group in Australia anyone can recommend?

What are the unique aspects of living in Australia that a first time traveller should know?

What are the must see/visit places and activities you would recommended for an Australian adventure?

Any other special advice for the first time traveller to Oz?

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Lee

I have been putting together material I have gathered online and from reviewing the older posts. There are some key spots I have an interest as a cricket fan so I plan to be there for the next the West Indies tour of Australia.

I was recommended to review Lonely Planet by a friend.
