Westfield Doncaster

Melbourne is a shopper's paradise! Being from LA I appreciate a good mall when I find one and Melbourne has an abundance of them. This is the first city I have been to in Australia where I have found outlet malls; I love a good deal. To start with, just up the road from us here at Nomads All Nations, is Spencer Outlets in Southern Cross Station. You can't beat sandals from Factorie for $2!

A lot is made of Sydney, Auckland and their rivalry. Sydney certainly win's when it comes to the bridge and Opera house, just saying. However Auckland does have many redeeming qualities including some great spots for surfing. (I really didn't think you'd be able to surf near Auckland, so I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived here).

Noosafestivalofsurfing

The Noosa Festival of Surfing is one of the most popular annual events in Noosa, and why wouldn't it be with all those hunky surfer dudes hanging around town?! Even if you don't think you're into surfing this is one event that you should try and be in Noosa for. The festival has been running since the early '90's and since its humble beginnings has grown into a massive world renowned event.

Cairns is notorious for its hot weather and people are constantly looking for ways to cool down in the summer sun. Jumping in the lagoon or your hostels swimming pool might not cut it on some days, so why not try something exciting, but at the same time very refreshing! White Water Rafting is a very popular activity in Cairns but the choppy water and adrenaline packed day is not for everyone, maybe you are looking for something a bit more chilled out. If this is the kind of day you're looking for then maybe a tubing trip on the Behana River is the way forward.

shearing sheep

One of the newest stops of the Kiwi Experience bus on the way to the Bay of Islands is Sheep World. At Sheep World they have embraced the concept of product diversification and instead of being just another farm they offer travelers the opportunity to experience the farm life. One of the things you get to see when you visit is the art of sheep shearing. As we all sat down on the wooden benches the owner brought a sheep from the back onto the stage and started to explain to us how to shear a sheep.

frogz sledging queenstown

A lot of people have heard about white water rafting, but white water sledging is not as well known. In Queenstown you can do both! The water sledge was founded in the late 70's in France, some keen Frenchmen were floating downstream through the rapids, way up in the alps, lying on bags filled with life jackets and polystyrene. In 1981, the first sledge or ''Hydrospeed'' was designed and built and since then, sledging has become a recognized sport with competitions held every year.

Are you ready to take on a 18ft shark? That is the question I had to ask myself and for the first time ever I have the fear and it's not from drinking!
