Default Charter/FAQ rec.travel.australia+nz

This FAQ currently contains:
-Posting Guidelines
-Tips on how to get the best results to your questions
-Travel Mailing Lists
-Internet Cafes in Australia
-The original RFD for this group containing the Rationale and Charter
(please check the "Charter" if you aren't sure if this is an
appropriate group for your message).

POSTING GUIDELINES
This newsgroup IS for discussion on accommodation, trains, planes,
interesting routes, sights to see and festivals or events in Australia
and New Zealand. It should NOT include discussion on how Australia is
governed, or what the economic growth of Australia is, or other
statistical, social or political discussion (this type of discussion
is more appropriate for the existing group soc.culture.australian, or
soc.culture.new-zealand). For discussion on travelling in Asia use:
rec.travel.asia.

ALL advertising is inappropriate and should be directed to the group
rec.travel.marketplace.

TIPS:
If you are planning a holiday and want advice, it helps to:
-include "OZ, NZ, or OZ+NZ" in your header to define the country
you're discussing
-give an indication of your daily budget (preferably in OZ/NZ dollars,
otherwise state the currency e.g. USD)
-state how long you want to come for
-state what you are interested in (e.g. beaches, bushwalking, cycling,
art, cities, historic buildings etc)
-state when you are coming (which dates or months)
-state what kind of accommodation you'd like e.g. guesthouses or B&B's
(where you can meet the people), or hotels/motels/resorts.
