Hey Elliott, cheers for the advice! A lot of people seem to be planning on spending Christmas in Sydney so maybe I should start in Cairns and move down? or start in Sydney and move up, who knows haha I just don't want to end up where everyone is travelling in the opposite direction to me :) Also, i've just realised I said i was 21, i think that was subconscious wishful thinking, i'm actually 24! haha.

Hey guys.

I have a flight booked from heathrow to cairns on 6th October. Traveling down the coast between October and Xmas. And end up I'm Sydney for Xmas and new year. Then no plans (probably look for work) anyone had similar ideas feel free to add me in Facebook. We have a group on there with some other people we have put together.

My name is Nia Sibley.

Hey everyone!

Flights are booked! I'm flying from Heathrow to Singapore on 24th Nov. I'm staying 3 nights in Singapore before flying into Brisbane on 29th Nov. I'm planning on traveling the whole of Dec (East Coast and Melbourne) but nothing planned yet; I'm considering booking something through backpackersworld (-any input would be gratefully received!) I don't know what I'm doing over Xmas and New Year!! In Jan i intend on finding work (I'm keen to work in Melbourne).

It would be great to know people out there and amazing if anyone happens to be doing the same journey!?

Is there a facebook group going?

On another note can anyone recommend good travel insurance providers?

Also what bag/suitcase is best!? Any suggestions??

Hello Nia,

I fly to Cairns from Manchester on 1st October and my intentions are to travel down the East coast to Melbourne as well. I keep seeing that everyone's starting in Sydney first so i hope I'm not doing this the wrong way round ha. If anyone is doing the same, it would be great to see what your plans are :)

Again like everyone here, I'm travelling alone so it's good to read that were all in the same boat! Excitment is taking over now so I'm no longer nervous :)

Happy Travelling everyone
