    That is a lot, yes :|

    LETS TALK BEER

    I'll leave out Queensland as you are not planning on making it up here - but if you do, we can discuss that later :) And you are totally welcome to stay at our place in Brisbane if you do :D

    HOP FARMS

    Lots of hop farms in North East Victoria - I should know, my family own one (5 hop gardens, about 40 acres of hops in total back when it was at full production) :) Not really accessible to your average tourist though - very out of the way.

    Ellerslie Hop Estate is fairly well known in brewing circles - we get our hops pelleted there as its just a few kilometres down the road:

    http://www.ellersliehop.com.au/

    You could probably catch a train to Rostrevor - located at Eurobin (well actually you would need to get a train to Wangaratta, and probably a bus from there...):

    http://www.hops.com.au/production/rostr ... rdens.html

    And if you did head to North East Victoria there are plenty of other things to see and do - visit the snow, wineries around Wangaratta (ie Brown Brothers at Milawa).

    MELBOURNE

    Definitely visit CUB:

    http://www.carltonbrewhouse.com.au/defa ... =melbourne

    Also, Matilda Bay:

    http://www.matildabay.com.au/

    Non-beer related, Melbourne Zoo is pretty awesome, as is the Aquarium and the Museum there. You should totally visit the MCG or Docklands Stadium to view a game of AFL too!!

    Public transport infrastructure is pretty awesome - can get pretty much everywhere via train, tram or bus.

    TASMANIA

    Never visited there myself, but prime hop-growing country down there. Probably lots of hop farms, and micro breweries to visit, and some beautiful wildlife and scenery.

    You shouldn't need more than a few days there though - can catch a ferry from Melbourne for a bit of an experience too.

    SYDNEY

    Not so much by way of hop farms to visit up that way. Taronga Zoo is pretty awesome, Sydney Opera House would be a must visit too.

    Public Transport infrastructure is not bad.

    Travelling between Melbourne/Sydney best done by plane - can get cheapish deals via Jetstar or Virgin Australia.

    NEW ZEALAND

    Hmmm - I would leave that for another time perhaps? Lots to see and do over there (extreme sport mecca, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit move locations, hot springs, snow, etc).


    Thats a start. Will add more to this though :)

    THIS IS BRILLIANT NEWS!! Gnoff Down Under!! :beerbang:

    But alas, I don't really know much about the "beer scene" here in Sydney as I'm not exactly the biggest fan of beer. I can however give you some metal spots, sight seeing tips and let you know of any metal shows that are coming up around the time that you are going to be here in Sydney.

    How is the possibilities on going on to Brisbane for example?

    Either visit other places, or head over to New Zeeland, we shall see what comes up in the planning.

    Distance and expensive wise, I don't think a visit to Brisbane is out of the question - one hour flight from Sydney and could get a cheap flight for under $100.

    Plenty to see and do here - within Brisbane you could visit the CUB and XXXX breweries. Shit beers IMHO, but the brewery visits themselves are very impressive.

    Queensland is also the themepark mecca of Australia - Dreamworld, Wet and Wild, Movieworld, Sea World, Outback Spectacular, Australia Zoo, Alma Park Zoo.

    The themeparks IMHO are a bit lame when you compare them to the Universal Studios and Disneys of the USA, but they are still cool. Seaworld is world class, and there are some world class rollercoasters at Dreamworld and Movieworld if you are into that kind of thing. And you can do the touristy things like hold koalas and pat kangaroos at the zoos and at Dreamworld.

    Further north but not too far away, you also have the Bundaberg Rum Distillery.

    You could also venture to SOUTH AUSTRALIA - the barossa valley is a worldclass grape-growing region, and there are some naturally beautiful places to visit, but I don't think there is much else to do there (not sure if there are any native South Autralians on the forum that can prove me wrong?)

    Anywhere else - eg far north to CAIRNS, to the red centre of ALICE SPRINGS and Ayres Rock, up to DARWIN, over to PERTH - you are talking serious $$$$ to get there as Australia is a fucking big Island.

    Is Sydney usually the best option to fly in and out of when heading to/from Europe?

    Yep that sounds like a nicely rounded out plan - and yes, Sydney is definitely the best hub to fly into and out of I think. As far as frequency of flights and cost, I'm pretty sure it would be the best option!

    Good times indeed :)

    Be aware that you will be visiting Australia in the middle of our winter.

    Average temps in Melbourne and Sydney will be about 3 or 4 degrees cooler than Brisbane (and Tasmania will be a further couple of degrees colder). Nothing extreme - but just an advisory :)

    Brisbane is great that time of year averaging around 17 degrees celcius - not too cold and not stinking hot.

    Average temperature in July for Hobart (Tasmania) range from about 4-12 degrees celsius.

    No probs :)

    This place if you come to Brisbane is a must visit (also conveniently just up the road from where I work). They ONLY sell craft beer:

    http://www.scratchbar.com/

    http://www.scratchbar.com/Images/menu.pdf

    They serve a beer called EPIC HOP ZOMBIE.

    EPIC. HOP. ZOMBIE. Says it all really :P

    True. Well, I'll be happy if at least you get to taste it. :beerwink:
    It seems to have 99 on ratebeer, so should be a decent double IPA.

    Mountain Goat, Bridge Road, Temple were all available at Mrs Palmas (not sure if they had the exact variants here though). Little Creatures is quite common so that wouldn't be hard to locate. Murrays I've seen around - they are a local NSW brewer (brewery is about 175km north of Sydney), so I would imagine their brews would be relatively easy to find in Sydney :)

    So short answer - yes, I think you would not have too much trouble scoring most of these :)

    The lead singer of Sabaton said the other night that prior to visiting Australia, he thought Australian beer was shit, as Australian beer to him=Fosters :P

    But the locals set him on the right path and put him onto our micro brews and he has a VERY different opinion of Australian beer now.

    I better not see him drinking Fosters on broad the Majesty :D

    sooooo much beer shall be sampled on this trip, mhm!


    As mentioned earlier, there are a couple of major breweries to visit in Brisbane:

    XXXX brewery, while the beer is shit, is an enjoyable brewery tour experience. And it is quite centrally located
    http://www.xxxxalehouse.com.au/

    Carlton brewery is not far from where I live. Marginally better beer than XXXX (and a lot better than Fosters LOL!!):
    http://www.carltonbrewhouse.com.au/defa ... =goldcoast

    This mob do organised tours of multiple craft breweries too:

    AWESOME!!!! Singapore is quite an interesting little place. I had a (unscheduled) 24 hour stopover there in 2004 on my way to Europe.

    Was meant to be just a plane change but there were mechanical issues so had to stay there 24 hours - didn't have to pay for the hotel for the night (and it was SWEET!) plus they gave a free bus tour of Singapore !

    See you in July :D

    Hope your bag catches up with you before you head off on your next flight.
    Did you at least get a consolation travel toiletries kit?

    Was the beer dumping intentional?

    OUCH!! That sucks!

    I'm actually tempted to buy one of these things as I do quite a bit of travel and its inevitable my luggage will get lost at some stage!!

    Not sure what your plans are for the weekend mate, but this is on:

    http://regionalflavours.com.au/event-guide/

    Mainly food and wine, but a few local craft breweries will be there. All day Saturday and Sunday at Southbank (close to the centre of Brisbane).
