  3. do u mean Melbourne or Brisbane? Brisbane has good night life and good weather, its where id go. but Melbourne is great too.

    Are you going alone?

  6. Melbourne is like sydney but much worse in just about every way.

    I would say go to Queensland or simply get a nice hotel in the city and have a huge night out in Sydney. it is defiantly a better option then Melbourne.

  8. You can get fined in Melbourne. You can get a sun tan in Queensland. Should be simple. :p

  10. Brisbane has Mt Nebo/Glorious/Mee, that pretty much says it all for a rider. :)

  11. And that my friends, is why everyone except Victorians hate Melbourne.


    If you want a decent place to go, skip both Brisbane and Melbourne. Stretch the legs and go to Tassie.

  14. Thanks for replies

    It's with missus to have short time off work!

    I'm more keen on the sun of south east Queensland, but she wants melbourne!

    So mostly just looking for things to do in either to really set the decision!

    Any recommendations on places to stay?

  16. I'm an ex sunny coaster now living in melbourne. This time of year, sunny coast is great if you're coming from south of the border and want to chill, hit the beach, have a quiet beer, etc. Plenty of talent getting about. Weather is usually great this time of year with not much rain and is warm enough to get around in shirt shorts & thongs.

    Melbourne is great also but in a different way....great bars, food & nightlife. If that's your sort of thing there is no comparison, Melbourne wins hands down. Also if you're into that aerial ping pong crap, Melbs is definitely buzzing at the moment with AFL finals.
