Going to Australia (OSDC)

[ #31339 ]

I have a Visa and my flight is booked.

Now it's just a matter of finding a place to stay in Melbourne and to arrange the rest of my vacations in Australia.

Advice is welcome O:-)

I'll be arriving in Melbourne December the 4th and departing on the 14th.

    I stayed there at last year's OSDC and I enjoyed it!

    How long do you stay in Australia?
    • I'm arriving on a Monday and departing Thursday of the week after. Considering I'll spend 4 days in the conference, I'll have 5 days for myself there, plus the day of the departure (I don't know whether I'm leaving in the morning or in the afternoon).
