My name is Caz (24) and I'm arriving in Sydney on 26th October. I'm there for a week before I start a tour up to Cairns. Any of you guys around from 26th October?

Hey Guys!
I'm Patricia (20) and currently staying in Adelaide. I've been here now for a half a year working as a live-in nanny. I have to leave my host family around the 20th of November. My WH-Visa is valid until April next year, so I'll go travelling around OZ the next couple of month.

My plan is to first fly to Cairns and then heading south (I'm European and trying to avoid the worst heat :) )
Depending on how much time I have left then I'll go see Tasmania, NewZealand, Darwin and Perth.

This is my vision of a perfect travel route, but I'm flexible to change it anytime. The only thing important to me is that I (and my travelmate(s) ) have a good time here.

I'm thinking about getting a camper van for the journey, but I'm not about sure about that yet.

So if anyone will start travelling the east coast around November this year I'd love to hear from them!

Hello Sam,

I travel to Cairns on the 1st October and I'm staying in Gilligans for the first few nights. Where are you staying? I'm then working my way down the east coast to Melbourne over the next few months.

Hope you have a safe flight.

Hi everyone,
Im Dianne Im thinking of travelling to Melbourne from Ireland at the end of October or start of November. I haven't set the date yet. I'm travelling alone and absolutely terrified at the moment. I was wondering if there is anyone else travelling to Melbourne around the same time?

Hi Kathryn,
Thanks for replying. I am planning on staying in a hostel at first until i find my feet. Hopefully that won't take to long. I'm planning on finding work in Melbourne as soon as possible and staying there for around six months to before I do some more travelling.
