Hello, I need to plan a trip for me and 5 more friends for a week in Australia. Can someone tell me / share, how they did your last planning for a group of people so that I get the idea of how it's done? Thank you.

From what country? If a distant country would a week be enough? From some countries it is a long ride just to get to Australia.

What month of the year?

Will you require some sort of visa or permission?

Everyone got passports?

On tight budgets?

Can you six decide at least decide on an arrival city???

Australia is about 2.97 million miĀ²!!! You have only one week - duhhh!

One of you should have some sort of working computer for simple Google searches. Also buying or borrowing an old fashioned travel guide and reading about Australia can be helpful too.

Fill out your profile so we know where you are coming from.

P.S. The more people you have on your trip might mike it more difficult to find rooms in the same hotels for everyone.

Also can you fit 6 people plus bags in the same taxi??? If not you might be booking vans for everyone or taking 2 taxis.

Come on back.

Why do I find it strangely amusing that the spammer and first-time poster Jean248 has a very similarly styled username to the original first-time poster Terry203? Their profiles are identical too!

I think the quantity of fakers and spammers we wade through is making us cynical. The members should chip in and send the mods on holiday to help us recharge our batteries. Mine's a week in the Faroe Islands please chaps. :)

OK! {rolls up sleeves} - I'll see your Svalbard with Belarus, and I'll raise you Eritrea.

Yeah you usually do much more exotic than me, Svalbard was a lucky hit so I couldn't resist. :)

I think the rarest countries I've visited for a Brit are Belize and Vanuatu.

Do I get any points for Chernobyl twice?

A friend of mine has just been to Svalbard so I'm keen now.

Chernobyl twice is superb - and I've heard that they're now doing trips into the exclusion zone from the Belarus side too. Perhaps not so much to see, hardware-wise but it's suggested that there's more wildlife than on the Ukraine side. We're just about to start watching the TV series.
