• Hello everybody! We are planning a trip to Australia from 13 February to 17 March. The first city to visit is Melbourne. Please give us advise how many days is enough for sightseeing in Melbourne.

    Not much to "see" in Melbourne... good fro shopping and cafes and live music. 2 or 3 days? Sydney and the Blue Mountains are the place to head to for spectacular sightseeing... so much to do there.

    And make sure you put Northern NSW on your list (Lismore Nimbin, Murwillumbah Byron Bay) - most beautiful place on earth .... in my humble opinion.

    All the best,
    Vic

    Thank you for your replies, guys!

    Mikhail, we are interested in anything that is interesting! We are open for new impressions, so are ready for any suggestions for time spending. Maybe some events will be held in Melbourne during our trip (february-march)?

    Vic, as we can see in google maps, Nimbin is a bushy place with rocks and waterfalls. Is it full of wildlife, dangerous animals? In Russia we don't know much about Australia. Most books tell us only about that it is a far away continent full of dangerous animals, which are living only there. And we know that there are a lot of spiders and snakes and they are everywhere :) Is it true?

    Jessica, thank you VERY MUCH for detailed answer! We liked an idea about taking bikes. And your detailed day by day plan will really help us to plan our route!
    We have a question about the Great Ocean Road. As we understand we need to rent a car, but in Russia we have right-side traffic and our cars have left-side wheel. Is it easy to accustom to left-side traffic with right-side wheel?
