Recommended Posts

Just in case anyone is interested....Flights via Cairns on Sat are $330 (1 way...) on Jetstar. Leave SYD at 6am & arrive Cairns just after 9am with a flight to Adelaide at about 1130 with a mid afternoon arrival in the city of churches.

It is seriously crazy, whats next Adelaide via NZ, Hawaii

I like the encouragement to "think laterally" for travel into Adelaide

 

I'm travelling via Melbourne, then Great Southern Railways "The Overland" train from Southern Cross station dep 8-05am on Saturday

arriving into Adelaide 5-50pm same day

 

back to Sydney on Qantas early Monday arvo - thinking positive, booked this flight before today's epic win

 

c'mon you Wanderers!

This is good option if flying into Melbourne Friday evening/afternoon. overnight in budget hotel and train in morning arriving Adelaide late arvo Saturday - cost all up around $400

 

 

update: works out at $129 Jetstar Syd/Mel, overnight budget hotel room $70 plus rail one way Great Southern Rail $139 (cheaper with concession)

so all up about $340

Did some browsing and have gone with the via Avalon overnight stay. $540 including a hotel on sat night. Get to Adelaide at 10 on Sunday. Fly out Monday arvo. Although Newcastle via Brisbane was cheaper it meant getting missing football on Saturday arvo. My flight to Avalon is 9:55pm so still get to play.

I'm on a late Sat. night flight to Avalon... haven't worked out accom yet...
Leave Sydney at 9:55pm?

I booked a room at corio bay. Still might can it and just sleep rough that night.

I know my dad was also looking at that place

Accommodation for 2 nights secured at mercure on north terrace.

Hey Pablo...I'm flying but you know what, that train ride sounds awesome and the scenery I would imagine would be breathtaking. I'm looking forward to a Twitter feed full of pics on the way. A bit of me is wishing I was more adventurous sometimes...LOL 

We can catch up and have that coffee we spoke of the other day.  :good:

oh they're gonna sing WONDERWALL really loud. I'm ******* terrified.

Now now Luis, the capo did say that he would give his voice to the team and the city for 90 whole minutes if it would get them the Holy Grail they seek.

 

Not sure how long he is planning on singing if they are going to lose, or how he will know. Or what he's planning on doing if it goes to extra time.

 

Also, why the **** did he put "red and black" in quotation marks?

 

So many questions.

This is the thing, we've got the whole section to ourselves. One area will be clearly active & others will be sitting. Plenty of room available to switch between areas & i'm sure there won't be an issue.

I'm telling you now, not all Wanderers fans are able to stand all match & lots will want there seats (I'm sure of it).

 

Just need to make sure that if you want to stand, move towards the active area & if you want to sit, go into the non-actives.

True, for those WSW Members who have purchased during the members window should know the unspoken rule by now that ticket allocation behind goals is the Active Section.

 

They should have been smart enough to get the Football Family Pre-sale allocation to get seats on the stands close to the RBB active section.

 

If ever, they should just seat on the edges of the bays.. and active is right in the middle.
