Hi Travel Buddies,

Now that we have moved to Melbourne, it becomes important for us to know the holidays, especially school holidays to plan our travels.  The school terms and holidays are slightly different from state to state.  We have just passed the 2 weeks holidays in Victoria and some other states will start school term tomorrow.

The information below listed 2014 Australia School Holidays in every state should come useful to you as well if you are planning a trip here.

Hi Travel Buddies,

Phillip Island is most famous for a place to watch cute little penguins returning onshore very night.  Do you know that this beautiful island offers much more than that?

Hi Travel Buddies,

We have been to Melbourne a few times but we have never stepped into Mornington Peninsula.  Finally we have the chance to visit last week and we realised there is so much to explore the entire region and one day is certainly not enough.

We started our day at The Peninsula Hot Springs, spent almost 3 hours to revitalize and recharge our bodies.  It was a short drive from the hot springs to Point Nepean National Park.  The park was originally used to quarantine people arriving in Victoria and it was also a military training ground. You can walk all the way to the tip of the Mornington Peninsula, enjoy the Mediterranean like ocean and bay views or do other walking trails in the park if you have the time.

Most of you may have heard about the famous London Bridge at Great Ocean Road.  If you are coming into the Point Nepean National Park, you cannot miss this London Bridge – equally stunning stone formation nicely tucked away at the back beach of Portsea. London Bridge at Mornington Peninsula

Hi Travel Buddies,

You may have heard that if you make any credit card purchases in Australia, you will need to provide your credit card PIN (Personal Identification Number) instead of signatures with effect from 1 August 2014.

Please note that this applies to not only credit cards issued in Australia, but also credit cards issued overseas.  We were asked several times over the counter when we try to make purchases using our credit cards issued in Singapore.

You may get away in some retail shops but we strongly advise foreigners to obtain their PIN in their home country to minimise any inconveniences.
