• I've read so many articles about the issues around free campers, and tourists overloading public facilities around the country. Hopefully these fees will be directed to improving these facilities and resolving these issues, making it basically a win win for everyone.I doubt $35 per person is goin...

  • Continued from above..I think the biggest thing though on these long flights is some type of distraction or way to prevent boredom setting in. For me it's not so much the sitting in a seat for so long, it's just there's only so many tv shows and movies to watch, and so many books/magazines to rea...

  • Have found it to be hit and miss as well the few times i've used it.

Leaving from Perth and open to where i end up in the US - though ideally LAX or SFO. Just searching general flights (not a...

  • How far in advance are they putting them up? Hunting for availability departing boxing day.
