Hey Liam :) I noticed your doing the Sweet As South tour. I did the grand explorer in NZ 3 years ago and it was amazing is this your first time to NZ? Hiking in Franz Josef was amazing and queenstown was my favourite. but all of the places I went too were pretty amazing :)
Hey krista yes!!! Its my first time going to New Zealand :) cannot wait only 5 weeks to go. Its only a 2 week trip buy thats the only time i can do it this year but it seems we both are doing a contiki tour somewhere every 2 years :)
Hey Liam :) I'm about to do a tour through the outback. is there much to do in Darwin? I have a day and a half up there. the mindil markets won't be on as I arrive on the Monday and leave Darwin with contiki on the Wednesday I think or the Thursday morning. any tips would be great :) ps, did you enjoy the wild western tour? I started the tour the day you finished it.
Yeah mindil beach markets are on sunday and thursday nights this time of year. Ill be on holidays next month in QLD might be Visiting relatives in cairns. I dont know QLD very well :/ or brisbane. But ill be in Brisbane in the 22nd September concert Robbie Williams so hopefully I can do a bit of exploring
Hi krista :) pity you couldn't go to the mindil beach markets its beautiful sunset here in darwin and thats one of the events during the dry season. The best things to visit in darwin city is crocosaurus cove . Where you can see the 5 metre crocodile and you could even swim with one in a cage haha. The nightlife is brilliant up here in darwin. Discovery nightclub. Monsoons. Deck bar. Casino. but the place lights up on the weekend. Id say with your time frame visit crocosaurs cove and check out the city mall for shopping or catch a cab to Casuarina shopping square :)
Are you travelling solo and when?
Darwins not big and its quite easy to make your way around town.
Oh really did you do the wild western tour in usa the week after I finished? ? It was an unforgettable experience had the best time. After the tour I stayed in la for a week before I came back home here. I might be going to NZ later this year. Early next year see what happens for another contiki. You can message me on here for more info on darwin or you can message me on firstname.lastname@example.org
