Re: Bargain ski break wanted

Webjet will be all about a DYI thing, but if you're travelling alone, that might be the way to go. Try one of the shops, thats where we got the package deal.

Re: What is Canberra like?

One thing to consider is work options. If you are on a 475 visa. Most gov departments want citizenship, so the largest employer in the ACT isn't accessible.
