Consider this your table of contents to the Cheap & Free City Guides that have been written for Australasia & the Pacific Islands. If you'd like to add to one of the existing ones, feel free - better yet, start your own about a city not yet listed! For information on how the guides got started, and ideas on what to put in yours, check out this thread. And when you've written yours, please send me a PM so I can add it to this list.

My favourite guides are from independent travellers or travel deal platforms that have options that are a little less ordinary. If they have something a little different, and good reading material then I'd use that. It's a plus if they link you up to travel deals on the same place so you don't hve to go hunting for what they are talking about... All the travel guides I pick up from the airport I rarely really pay attention to but still they have better use because it's convenient. Finding the right travel guides online is also tricky. So it's a good thing to compile a list.

Personally, I like blogs and personal accounts. There's a list of the best travel blogs in Australia here and some others too if you google it. I recently started using an Aussie fare compare site called wego australia travel and they have some entertaining/cultural articles that I quite like so it's fast becoming a favourite for me. It's not exactly a guide for oz but more generic guide for travel i think. But i suppose u can filter travel deals by popularity to see what's the hottest stuff in aus. I also recommend reading travelfish guide on planning : Less is More.

That's my take, stuff that I use. Hope it helps some of u
I love the feeling of being anonymous in a city I've never been before.

I've found that putting your items into a self storage unit while you're travelling mya be a good idea, especially if you intend to tour around the country for a while and take your time looking around. If you're going to be picking up a number of things, it may be a good idea to look into safe and secure storage space for your items that will leave you free to enjoy the sights!
