Aussie Guys - Help Me Out!

I am planning a trip to Australia in a year or so. This will be my first time. I know a lot of you guys here are from Oz, so I am asking for recommendations. What are the “must see” places/things? What time of the year is best for a visit?

Hey no worries man but i will need to know a few things where in Australia are u going (its a very big country) and what kind of weather u looking for.
Cheers

Of course the best place to go in Australia is … nah, just get off the plane in N.Z and go adventure touring in the South Island.

Well the Gold Coast is where all the tourist go and its where the theme parks are at. Good beaches too.

Don’t go to NZ though.

depends on what your wanting to see, the east coast is far better IMO. nice places like byron bay have great beaches and a nice atmosphere. road tripping is a good idea…from sydney to brisbane, while stoping off a places along the way for a surf or an adventure.

I agree, do a road trip. hire a van or something and just stop at every beach town onthe east coast.
Come in the summer time dude, feb is good.
