Should I bring along Meal Mart or La Bruit meals? and are any of the meals prohibited to take?

You can bring La Briute.
Whether you can eat them is another story ;)

Spaghetti Meatballs isn't bad.
Cheese Ravioli is fine if you add another tomato sauce on top.

Kakadu national park and Litchfield. I was told it is beautiful there this time of year.
I think I am going to be limited when it comes to refrigeration. I am hopping between a bunch of hotels.
They sell UHT milk all over, no refrigeration necessary until open. Harvey Fresh in the CY brand.

Tickets to sydney from ny/nwk per person for begining of sept to mid oct are $1311 per person on united. Not really looking for more then the 1 required stop and unfortunately don't have mileage this time around. Any ideas of how to cut that cost? Need 5 tickets. Have mileage for 1 so make that 4. Is it realistic to find cheaper? That's way over my budget..

The PH is the nicest place. There's a shul in the CBD, though it's a bit of a walk (under 30 min) IIRC. You can get take out from restaurants of buy regular food (not prepared) from Coles and/or Woolworths.

I took a ferry from the other side of the harbour into the city. Beautiful views of the bridge and Opera House.
I got student tickets Sat. night to a symphony there for $25AUD. was a great experience.

I saw the regular one, not Double bay, and it was very nice looking. Great location too. Double Bay is nowhere near the CBD.

Double Bay isn't too far from CBD, but it will need a bus. There's a very active and friendly Chabad there. It's also very close to kosher facilities
