23 year old female from Scotland looking to head solo to Australia July 2014. Hoping for a 4 month trip doing either Sydney - cairns or cairns - Sydney

Anyone else in the same boat? Any tips/advice?

Never travelled alone before, so thinking of ozintro or ultimate oz to get started?

Cheers :)

Hey I'm a 21 year old from England :) going to Sydney in July for a year, just bought my visa and the flight is booked too. I'm doing ultimateoz also to get started. Thinking of spending till September working and then go travelling. What are your plans so far?

Thinking of starting ultimateoz in sydney near the start of July, spending a week or 2 there then travelling up the coast eventually ending up in cairns in September/October.

Have you guys booked flights? When do you arrive? Not planning to work so fairly flexible!

Not too set on dates yet! Slight possibility of doing Thailand for 2 weeks first so middle of July also an option.

Where do you plan on working? The ultimateoz sydney welcome thing sounds really good! Pictures look great too!

Ahh that's awesome. I wanna go to Thailand at sons point. Maybe on my way back! I wanna do Bar work :) what kind of visa you getting? I know right, puts your mind at rest too if your going on your own like we are
