It really matters the time frame involved, personal tastes, and of course... $$$$. For both AU and NZ, you will probably start off in major cities (Sydney, Auckland, etc.). Are you guys working while you are there? That also plays in a ton.

Throw out some specifics and I am sure the suggestions will start rolling in.

Well it all depends on what you want to do. If you are more of the extreme traveler/adventurer then the out back and country sides are the places to go. If you are more the city girls then stick to the main cities. Now if you are like me, a huge adrenalin junky, then I have a great travel schedule for you girls. Let me know what you 4 are looking to do and I will post up a few ideas.

If you are going to be on a tight budget or want to go for a long period of time a working holiday visa is a big PLUS!!! I am defiantly going to get one again when I go back next year. Working over seas is just one more way to meet awesome locals and see the customs.

Well we are only going for 2 weeks just like a little vacation kinda. We would like to go to a place where we can party at night and day sometimes . We also want this trip to be an awesome adventure. We arent really on a huge budget, but then again we have a yr to save. We arent planning on going untill the end of next yr. We are seriously girls down for anything. So anything suggested is good.

I'm heading down there around November next year for a wedding and will be staying hopefully at least a month. I'll definitely be posting an itinerary and shooting out ideas as it approaches.
