Hey guys!

Me and my friend is arriving in Melbourne on the 19. December, how is the best way to get too Sydney on the 23.? Would you guys recommend flying, bus or train? We have to be there pretty early as well!

Another question, we are hiring a van in Sydney, and want to stay in Sydney or close to Sydney until New years eve.. Is it easy to find a parking-spot close to Sydney, inside of Sydney etc.? Anybody has a place we can park for free:)

I'd recommend flying to Sydney if you have to do it in 4 days. That way you can explore Melbourne while you're there, maybe go to the zoo and check out the Great Ocean Road then fly to Sydney on the 22nd or 23rd.

If you want to stay in Sydney for NYE then check out the sticky thread for TP members, they might still be taking bookings. I think it'll be hard to find somewhere to stay in the city around NYE this late in the year, parking in the city is always difficult...

the great ocean road is a must if you are in that area, renting a car is relatively cheap and its a beautiful drive, with some stunning beaches
