    That’s cool, I’m going to visit some relatives in Canberra first then spending a couple of days in Sydney before the tour starts. I’m so excited! I’m from England, long flight for me! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Chris, the 28/29/30 is when we’ll be in and around Cairns so may well meet somewhere, I’ll look out for another Contiki group! We dont do the Rainforest part (which is why this tour is 2 days less).

    Emma, I couldn’t add you, the link didnt work. You could try adding me as Im the only Shane Lynam from New Zealand! :)

  • 29 Mar 2011 Cindy29 said


    Hi Emma! Yer i cant wait either haha :-)

    I am actually from Australia, I wanted to do something different for my birthday so i booked a trip for myself along the East Coast as i have never been that far up North or to many of the places inbetween.. I also thought it would be a great way to meet new people from all over the world. I am staying at the holiday inn aswell so i think we should all meet at the bar for a beverage or 2 when we get there hehehe..

  • 29 Mar 2011 Emma-j-c said


    Ah kool, when is your birthday, or has it already been? Yeah definitely!, I’m staying at the Holiday Inn from the 15th so I can explore Sydney a little bit! Are you on Facebook? my email is if you want to add me : )

  • 29 Mar 2011 Cindy29 said


    Nah my birthday is while we are on the trip :-) Sooo i will be expecting everyone to get their party shoes on that night hahaha. Oh awesome, i get in at like 10:30am on the 16th.. I will add you now :-)

    Hey Cindy, thats cool, you picked a great tour! Im in Australia at the moment and its really awesome! I cant wait to get to the east coast…see you soon! And Im a Kiwi so I’ll try not joke too much about your accent LOL.

  • 30 Mar 2011 Cindy29 said

    Hey I’m doing the Surfer’s to Cairns 12day contiki starting on Tuesday April 19th and it’s pretty much the Sydney to Cairns without Shoal Bay and Bryon Bay, do contiki tours join up?

    I guess I’m just desperate to find other people doing the trip with me!
