    TA varies wildly by country. The Australia forum is just awful, but the Japan forum is fairly civil and helpful.

    I agree with the others, don't rent a car to get around Sydney. If you go to the Blue Mountains and want to explore beyond Katoomba, Leura etc, a car could be useful, but you could also look at...

    I think the A30 is an ideal size for Japan. It fits well on luggage racks even on local trains and squeezes nicely into odd corners of very compact hotel rooms.

    I find the three brown colours above a bit too much like cocoa, and lighter than I was thinking of, although 2322 is quite nice. I think a really dark brown would be a good alternative to black and...

    One point to note about size is that Australian sizing is different from US sizing, so it would pay to look at the size chart before ordering.

    I think Pantone's Black Coffee shade is more like what I had in mind.

    The actual Espresso shade is too black, and Coffee Bean is too reddish.
