I am a 22 years old looking for people who are thinking about travelling around Australia early next year (2015).
If anyone is travelling alone next year/ or has travelled alone I would be grateful for any ideas of the best things to do, places to see and also places to go. I have applied for a working visa so the best jobs to apply for? Maybe fruit picking and bar work etc thats what ive been looking at.

Any feedback would be excellent. Also if anyone is looking for a travel buddy that would also be good news.

Hi Holly,

Have you seen this thread? Sounds like Adam could be travelling around at the same time as you.

Regarding the 'best' of anything, that is very subjective! Let us know what you're into and we might be able to give you some ideas. My suggestions would be not to miss the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island penguins, and check out Melbourne's Chinatown for great food on the cheap.

The best jobs to apply for, however, would be the ones that hundreds of other travellers aren't also applying for! So I suggest looking outside the usual fields and apply for everything. Good luck!

Thank you very much! Phillip island penguins sounds incredible.

Yeah I'm probably gonna go down the line of fruit picking or maybe buy a license so I can work in a bar. If not I'll just take loads of CV's out with me and hope for the best
