    Same, I couldn’t find the event either! This is my 1st Contiki, do people normally create events through the Contiki Facebook page maybe?

    Hey Reschie, Im currently living in Coogee, work at the hospital in Randwick. Never been to NZ before so pretty excited, plus its been a last minute booking which mean less time to hang around waiting for the trip :-)

    I just got my confirmation this morning and my accomodation for the night before at the mercure is booked. Thats a bummer about not being able to get accomodation there photobuddy :-(

    Aslo i tried to join the group on facebook and cant seem to find it, not sure if you have to be invited to events or not.

    Currently just packing my bags!!! I fly out on Thursday and arrive in Sydney on Friday night. I know that when I’m in cairns it’s mostly going to be swimwear and stuff like that, but I know in NZ I have to pack a waterproof etc for the glacier, so I’m really trying to figure out what need for 3 trips!!! It’s starting to send me slightly crazy now!!!

    How are the people (coming from USA and Canada) sorted for flights?!?!?

  • 30 Oct 2012 Kelly said

    Kelly

    I have no idea really what to pack for either trips right now besides the basics lol so recommendations would be lovely! My flights from the state are okay. A few stops/lay overs not looking forward to it all lol

    (lets try that again)

    Hey guys, will be meeting you all on the tour! I’m doing the big tiki from 3rd-21st Dec but I think we all meet up on the 6th to start the main part of the travels. Also traveling solo and will be in Auckland on the 1st/2nd of december, so if anyone else is around would be great to catch up pre-tour.

    Hey James,
    Sorry fly into Auckland on 5th ready to start the tour on the 6th :-) Where are you traveling from? Im traveling from Sydney so just a quick trip over the ditch :-) Getting pretty excited. Just got back from a trip to Perth just the other day, so now time to pack for NZ. Only a few more weeks left.
