    Speeding on Australian Roads

    by skatzcatz Updated Nov 23, 2004

    In all states and territories there are hefty fines for speeding. Best not to do it, take your time and enjoy the country and most importantly get there safe and well.

    Melbourne Trolley

    A good way to experience Melbourne is by taking one of the many trolleys. Try the free city line that makes the rounds around the city center.

    The only way to get there is flying and that is a 12 hour flight from LA. I guess one could take a ship, if one has the time and money.
    Flying between major cities and rental cars after arrival.

    Getting there: Whitsunday is a 30- minute boat ride from its closest neighbor, Hamilton Island; Fantasea Cruises takes you over and serves a buffet lunch on its three-hour excursion ($35).

    Cars - if you are here for a long period of time, them i suggest that you hire a car. It is well worth it and safe too. You will see undiscovered places.

    If you have more rentals in your trip, these guys can create a good package (http://www.getaboutoz.com). They helped us with 3 mini-vans and a 4WD that we needed to connect our flights.

    If you travel from Melbourne to Tasmania you can choose between traveling by air or by sea, if you go by air it's a bit more expencive but you save about 13 hours compared to traveling by sea
