Melbourne/Perth, Australia


Melbourne has a great beach and nightlife too. It’s very close to Sydney and easily accessible by public transport for those who bother leaving Sydney***. You really have to know someone who lives there to justify the trip to Perth. This small city is on the West Coast of Australia. It’s a long, expensive plane ride from either of the larger cities on the East Coast and is a favorite stopover for the U.S. Navy personnel while on tour in the South Pacific, so beware the poor ratios at Perth’s most happening night spots at certain times of the year. Still for my Navy buddies who’ve made the trip and had shore leave in Perth, this place was paradise. But then again, what do you expect to hear from a bunch of guys stuck on a ship with other men for months on end?
