I was due to go travelling earlier this year but due to circumstances couldnt go, but the plan in back on for Feb 2012.

So im looking for advice on places to stay around oz... and tavelling around oz, we have a plan for some things we want to see but we dont want to miss a thing... so any advice on places to go, things to see that they dont tell you about in the books/internet, money saving tips etc would be much appreciated.

We plan to fly to Singaphore for a few days, then to Melbourne, on to Sydney and up the east coast before flying to Fiji and on to San Fransico and travel around America for a bit, Vegas, LA etc before coming home.

Thanks for any advice, hints and tips :)

What kind of experience would you like in Australia? You're travelling up the east coast from Melbourne in summer some options are:
- The Snowy Mountains - no snow in summer but you can take the chairlift from Thredbo and hike up Mount Kosciuszko
- Jervis Bay - beautiful white sand and beach to relax on
- Heron Island/Keppel Islands
- Undara Volcanic park

Happy to help if you need more info.

Around Sydney you can visit Cronulla and Woollongong. GReat surf in there aswell if u r into it.

Going up there are a lot of stops to do: Newcastel, Ballina, Nimbin (hippy village, a bit away from the coast, but worth to visit, lovely cookies), Bayron bay, uffff, you'll love it for party.

In Ballina you can watch whales, it 's very frequent to observes whales passing by.

Go to Frasier Island driving a 4x4 wheel drive. It's amazing with its Mackenzie lake.

Don't miss withsunday islands with its white beaches. spend 3 days in catamaran with other people. It's a must.

Basically mate, visit all OZ.

Have a good trip
