Hi Wanderluster, From looking at the opal retailer site both the Domestic & International airports in Sydney have an opal card retailer. If you want to have a look yourself search 'Mascot' (airport suburb) on this site then look at the ones around the terminals; http://www.retailers.opal.com.au. Otherwise I'm sure you can ask someone when you get there. Hope that helps! Pearse - World Nomads over 1 year ago
Hey Milly, There are two main ranges, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. When we went we used a Queestown superpass (http://www.skiexpress.com.au/shop/queenstown-superpass-adult/) which was the cheapest option, also good because days are flexible and non-consecutive (I'd double check this/prices as it's been 2 years). The whole town will be in snow-mode and there's a gear shop or two there where you can rent per day, can't remember prices but wasn't crazy $$. I'm fairly sure all accommodation providers will be able to offer a free shuttle to either range, the Remarkables are a bit further away but their green run is much longer (I was a beginner and preferred them > Coronet). Snow was off and on, it's a bit rainy at that time so that's your main concern, I think out of the 5 days we were there 1 of them we called off due to weather. Hope that helps! Pearse 24 days ago
Hi Jessica, Of course it depends on what you're doing and what kind of accommodation you're staying in, but in general I would plan for US $50 per day for all expenses (activities, transport, accom etc.). Some days you'll be hard pressed to spend more than $30, especially in Laos as it's quite a bit cheaper than the other two. Hope that helps! Pearse 6 months ago
