    Default Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney?

    I'm from Canada and I went to Australia a year and a half ago, I'm coming back in a month or two and wanted to know where I should go this time? I stayed an hour or so outside Brisbane in Beachmere last time for a few months with some people I know. It was free accomodation so thats where I posted up for a while.

    I'm wondering where I should start my trek this time, Its a mostly skate orientated trip for me but I was wondering if someone could help me out with how the seasonal weather is in each place this time of year and which better caters to a skater. Thanks guys!

    i'm not a big fan of sydney i usually get over it after a few days.. brisbane is the goods, so i moved here. and melbourne i've never skated..

    really though you can get a flight or train from brisbane for $60. so stay with your friends in Brisbane and just travel around the country as you want..

    and also weather wise it's pretty similar between sydney and brisbane..

    Sydney has mad skate spots, Waterloo Skate Park, Martin Place, Chiefly Plaza, Hyde Park, Darling Harbour Banks, Circulay Quay Flat, Harrington 15, Monster Skate Park, Bondi Bowl, Five Dock Bowls, Cammeray Skate Plaza etc....

    Brisbane has Capalaca skate park as well, that place seriously looks like the best outdoor plaza in Australia

    thats still around an hour away and i don't really know that many suburbs since i'm new here..

    go on here and theres a list of all the parks in QLD with a rating just find which ones are near where you're staying and your set i reccommend you travel a bit and check out Capalaba park it's on there as redland youth centre..

    Went to Capalaba tonight actually. Felt a bit limited as to what I was capable of doing there but a few more visits should see me piece together the terrain. Just spent my time paddling around in the bowl til' I rolled my ankle again.

    Coorparoo is highly rated. Very street style course.
