I'm going to Australia (Sydney and Cairns) and New Zealand (North Island) in about two months. Is there anyone lurking in these forums (besides Futterman, whom I have already spoken to) who has been to either Australia or New Zealand recently and wouldn't mind me asking some questions?
In case it helps you determine whether you might be able to talk to me about the trip, I'm spending a few days in Sydney and a few days in Cairns before flying to Auckland to spend a week just driving around the North Island and staying at random bed and breakfasts. I plan to spend one day spotting at SYD, one day at CNS, and part of a day at AKL.
Please let me know if you're willing and able to answer questions about any part of my upcoming trip. Thanks!
