I'm similar in that I'm heading to Sydney in April but a couple of weeks later. Plan on staying there till September time and then moving on, possibly to Melbourne. I've been on short trips on my own but never proper travelling. Been thinking about it for a while but now it's booked and it's getting closer it's a bit scary.

Hi Kate,

I'm in a similar position too. I'm flying out to Sydney on 22nd April. I haven't really got any definite plans yet which is both terrifying and also quite freeing because I can do what I want. I want to travel up the East Coast- hitting all the major places (and anything in between) until I get to Cairns!

My last day at work is next week and then I have about two and a half weeks to sort everything out. It's pretty close now.... this is probably the time where I realise I've missed out on getting something vital!

Two and a half weeks prep!! I'm a nurse and I have 4 days off before I fly and the day I fly I've just finished nights!! I need to seriously plan what I want! I think I'm going to spend a few days in the blue mountains and then just totally chill drink and enjoy life around Byron bay. Heading up to Fraser Island towards the end of April. Hopefully will be an amazing few weeks. I'm so excited. X

Hi everyone. I'm another fellow traveller who has nothing planned yet. I fly into Sydney in June and looking for some travelling friends for when I get there!

Hi S,

How long you looking on staying out there for? Do you have your flight booked?

Hey Dan,
Yes I've booked my flight, I've got a WHV for a year and only a one way ticket so I don't really know how long I'm going for. You?

Definitely want to travel around but I haven't booked anywhere to stay yet or for how long I want to be there. I don't really want to make any definite plans. I'm trying to find someone to meet up with and travel with to cut down on travel costs. You planning to work right away?
