Default Those here in Oz, where do you go on holiday ?

My favourite place is Port Douglas, I just can't stand leaving Four Mile Beach or the Barrier Reef.

I would like to go to the Coco's islands in the Indian ocean as they belong to Oz and seem pretty cheap

Stayed at home for my last holiday ... no finer place to be ... just add extra booze and remove parental/husbandly responsibilities for a week and I'm sorted.

We have had trips to Sydney, Seaworld and down to Mount Warning so far ... next excursion will be back to the UK next June with a side-trip to Amsterdam

Always fancied visiting Tassie actually.

I am jealous, but I have had my jollies for this year Love Airlie beach we went with my dad last year, we went on the whitsunday cruise, a purple catamaran?? it was drink as much as you like all day, and this was BC (before child) so we were, to say the least very happy that day

Great day highly recommend it!

We went skiing at Mt. Buller, Victoria in July and plan to go camping alongside the Murray River at Easter. Apparently this involves no washing, no clean clothes and a ribbon round the tree when you have business to attend to!

We're of to Cairns in January it will be our first family holiday since we arrived nearly 2.5 years ago.

We've not left Victoria although we did drive from Sydney to Brisbane once while on holiday.
