I'm planning to go with my best friend (2 girls) to Australia on Dec. 2013. We are thinking of going to Fiji and maybe New Zealand and spending new years in Sydney as well. We would be leaving from New York. I would love to see what kind of advices you get on this blog.
Read you later :-)

Hi everyone,

I will be arriving in Sydney late November and staying there over NYE too, then working my way up the East Coast :) Need some advice on where to go on NYE though!

i am in brisbane beginning of december considering either going down the coast then back up or go up the coast as soon as i get into going straight up the coast

December is the beginning of the wet season up north (which lasts through March). This features high humidity, heavy rain showers, and frequent floodings (you might remember this being in the news about Brisbane several times over the last few year). So I'd recommend first going down the coast, and being very leisurely about it before going up.
