Hello, My name is Zeeshan. I am visiting Australia from Feb 1st to 30th January 2015 for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup. I am planning to visit all the places where matches is going to be played such as Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Canberra, and Melbourne. As I am visiting Australia for the first time I tried to contact the travel agents for hotel bookings and city tour packages. But they seem to charge more than what is listed on the websites. So can any one help me in planning my trip at each place, that can be covered all the places and also I am getting confused about the hotel bookings, where to book and I am looking for Economy type of hotels. Thanks . . .
Hello Fellow Backpackers I am Jon 25 from the UK and after look at the prices of hostels well I was not a happy chap. There are however several houses / flats still available in Sydney and relitivly cheap when split between a group of merry backpackers. If you are interested feel free to message me and get something organised. However most houses can only be booked for a week or more likely two, so you would have to be happy to cover the whole time but well there is a lot of sydney to explore. I look forward to hearing from you Jon . . .
