    it shouldnt take too long, just find small waves at first. a lot of people have trouble with getting to their feet because they go out in surf that is too big for them.

    Seeing as though I'm from around Cairns, I thought I'd throw in a few good words for the region. One of the best reasons to go up there is to see the reef, although if you're going in June it might be a bit chilly out on the outer shelf. You can also do the Kuranda Skyrail through the rainforest and go up to Port Douglas (it's a beautiful ocean drive up there).

    Brisbane is pretty cool, but if you want beaches, you'll have to head north to the Sunshine Coast, or south to the Gold Coast (both are about an hour's drive from Brisbane).

    I can definitely recommend the Northern Territory as a tourist destination. Ayers Rock has to be seen to be believed (and climbed!) and the Olgas (Kata Juta in the aboriginal spelling I think) is just absolutely amazing. Also, if you're out that way check out King's Canyon, Palm Valley and Simpson's Gap if you have the time.

    I've been all the way around Oz, so if you need any specific info, PM me.

    I wasn't really. I'd usually ask Craig if I was allowed to bring another item, I was eventually going to make clothing out of whatever I was taking with me.
