refugee (they pay you to stay!)
and don't forget to sneak your pets in too!
what are you talking about. a middy of black is nectar of the gods. you're taste buds have just wreck by that awful adelaide water.
Why anyone would want to leave the good ole USA even for two weeks is beyond me. Haven't you heard that they are making us awesome again?
Adelaide water is why I drink beer. Get some Little Creatures Pale Ale, McLaren Vale Pale Ale, Coopers Pilsner, Stone & Wood Pacific Ale etc etc. That's where the goods are
Ignore the advice about missing Sydney, it's Australia's most beautiful city. The harbour is AMAZING. Walk around the botanic gardens, Opera house and the Rocks. Great pubs and restaurants in the Rocks.
Museum of Modern Art on the right, if you like that stuff. From there walk over or under the bridge...
...or around to one of the oldest pubs, The Lord Nelson and try the house beers.
Recommend you consider doing the Harbour bridge climb. It's not cheap but extremely memorable, safe and an easy walk.
Near the Rocks, at Circular Quay, catch a ferry to Watson's Bay and have dinner at Doyle's - either at the restaurant or cheaper at the take away stand.
Walk up the hill to South head for great views. Catch a gig at The Basement. Visit Darling Harbour for the maritime museum, and also the aquarium and wildlife park - chance to pat a koala and kangaroo. In the city, visit the Queen Victoria Building for shopping and a coffee, across the street and down a bit to the Strand Arcade again for window shopping and a coffee.
While there pop into the Strand Hatters for an akubra hat...
Catch an Uber to Bondi beach for a swim, or Coogee beach, or head north to Balmoral beach for a more tranquil swim.
Don't miss Sydney. I love Melbourne but it doesn't have as much to do and see unless you just want to shop and eat, which is a perfectly respectable option, of course. Lot of good blues and jazz in Melbourne, too.
The Old isn't.
I have a thrifty friend from the US visiting at the moment. She stays at YHA hostels - these are actually very good places with excellent facilities if you don't mind dormitory style sleeping arrangements. She got 10 nights accommodation in Adelaide for just $195USD! So it can be done on a low budget without staying in a roach infested dump!
did the op ever reply to all this speculation?
it's a wide brown land full of dingbats
No James Boag's, my uncle and a lot of his Ozzie mates will not be happy about this, according to them, it's the only good thing about Tasmania, besides pointinbg and laughing at all the scars the locals have on the sides of their necks.
pfft...drink FOSTER'S if you want to be considered a TRUE AUSSIE!!!
Fixed for you
Haha. Lots of info. Some good and some hilarious.
As far as beer I had a fosters once. Didnt care for it. Im sure Aussieland has better options.
True. However they did (thankfully) leave out the 'Copycat XXXX', i.e. the "Great Northern" lager and super-crisp lager. That's for drunks who can't drink beer. Basically diluted vodka with a couple of hop pellets scraped into it.
Everyone always goes on about the Eastern States.
Do something different and head over to Western Australia:
WA is a completely different Australia. Isolationism on their part makes them more unique than Tasmanians...
I recommend WA.
Cause Tasmanians are Victorians that learned to swim..
Fosters gets sold overseas cause no bugger here will drink it
is there a website where I can get in one one of these machines? I work in government and can only afford the barest necessity of 54' diesel pusher with at least one tip out
Kevin Parker dont know it yet
but ol soulohio is gonna be his next bandmate

It was a good post till you plugged Port Adelaide in it. You do realize that you're not a bona fide port supporter until you can remove a car stereo in under 30 seconds?
Go the Crows.
¡ go tame impala !
