To get you started heres a great sydney pack put together by a friend of mine, Ben.. http://googletouring.com/t.php?id=70

I'll put together a few shopping centres and stuff around Sydney for you.. unfortunately Cairns is out of my leauge, I've only been there once and it was a weekend many years ago. We'll have to wait on a queenslander like DoctorSmith to help you there :)

I stayed at the Colonial Club in Cairns when I went years ago. Very nice.

hi !

had been away for a week - thanks for answering me -- and i think no one really knows what cricket is
i tried to understand it but i am shure its more a social
thing than sports - but i think i like it cause its kinda nuts - personaly i would prefer a game of aussie rules football

have a nice time

Isn't cricket where you eat cucumber sandwiches and watch grown men playing with themselves on a big field?

If you are looking for "waterfalls - forests - canyons or just wonderful lonely areas where i can relax without mankind" - you cant go past Katoomba - located about 1 hour north-west of Sydney
