Aussies, I could use some help here.
Going to be coming from California to Australia for the Aus X Open and will be in Melbourne for 3 nights. Then flying to Sydney for 3 nights, then to Brisbane for 3 nights and staying in Gold Coast. Ive got a few things on my list that I want to do - skydive, surf, Springbrook national park, but outside of that I could use some suggestions of what to do while I am there or places I have to visit.
Looking forward to this trip! Thanks guys

If ya want to kill a whole day (whilst in Melbourne) hire a car and head to Appollo Bay along the great ocean road. Arguably one of if not the worlds best drive. Melbourne also is the food capital of the world with the best eating around.
Sydney is the same ol same ol. Toronga zoo is a must though but that kills a day.
Brisneyland / Gold coast bucket loads of stuff to do. when in Gold Coast there is a lot of factory outlets for all the big surf brands.

Depends what your after mate and what interest you.
while in Sydney, spend the day at the zoo and doing the tourist stuff such as harbour bridge and opera house.
If you got time and a spare day, go for a look more north to the Central Coast or Newcastle and check the beaches out.

Honestly, if you want a feel for the country, get out of Sydney and go into some local pubs and have a yarn to some aussie tradies. you'll get a good laugh and some cracker of some story's.

Are you coming down with mates, family or anything?

Melbourne, Great ocean rd, Bells beach, and surf factory outlets is a full day trip, Melbourne zoo is an average zoo,
Melbourne is the clubbing capital of the world without a doubt if that is your thing. There are no midweek tracks to go and watch pro ride SX as such.

Change your flights. Get to the Whitsundays or cairns. See the Great Barrier Reef and rainforests. When u come back (bet u do!), do a cape York ride with cape York motorcycle adventures. There is so much fun adventure stuff to do in far North Queensland....

Just off the top of my head;

1) Hunt Drop Bears at night.
2) Fight a Kangaroo.
3) Go to Penrith and do some burnouts in the industrial park. (can be done in South Brisbane too).
4) Drink Fosters.
5) Swim any beach at dusk (or dawn).

Any more boys? tongue

Wrestle a swamp dog (crocodiles). Actually no, don’t do that. And don’t swim at dusk or dawn (bull sharks will nail you). And don’t swim in ANY creeks if FNQ unless they are definitely croc free. And don’t swim in the ocean in FNQ in summer (deadly jelly fish). And don’t get pissed and do any of the above.

Do:
Get pissed
Root lots of skanky backpackers

Took me a few times reading through this to figure out that 'getting pissed' is the Aussie way of saying drunk hahaha! Thanks for all of the input and suggestions here men. I do not plan on having any bull shark encounters, I do plan on seeing the city and country when I can, and finding a lady or two as us Americans hear that AUS has the hottest optionscool Will definitely have to come back next year for a longer trip. What I can promise is that I will be getting PISSED at the race and every other night im there, and hope to share a beer with you all!

On a side note. Once it gets closer to AUS X. I feel like a forum should be made for some aussie sayings and slang terms to help out the fellas from across the waters understand what we are on about for those who do come across for the race laughing laughing

Watch as much Jim Jefferies as you can before you get there. Shame you won't be there for a NRL or AFL game.
