Hi there !

Im a Canadian girl who loves adventure and relaxation! Some of my friends and I are looking to travel the east coast of Australia but need some advice..
Our age range is 18-19 we are all adventurous and love to soak up the sun, when is the best time to travel the east coast, with the nicest weather etc? And what would be our best bet for accommodations on a decent budget?
PLEASE HELP! Need any advice possible :)

Looking for a fun safe trip!

Brooklyn :)

Best time: Anywhere between April and October. Maybe also November, but then you'll have to contend with the Schoolies (massive flood of just-finished highschool students, all heading to the Gold Coast and around to party). From December through March is the wet season up north (Brisbane and above), and generally less pleasant because of that. June-August gets a little bit chilly at night down at the far south end of the east coast, so probably April-May and September-October are the absolute best times all around, but if you'll only stick to Sydney and further north, then you'll be just fine from June through August, too.

Awesome thanks so much!
Im 18 so the schoolies might be nice to be around since im younger!
however, I really want great weather.. heard different things from a few people already!
Also.. Do you happen to know of some good tours for the east coast.. preferably Sydney to Cairns.
Looking to stick to the beaches, ocean etc. Would like to do some hiking and bungee jumping!
Im fairly adventurous so looking to have an awesome time!
Take care :)
