Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Melbourne - May 2014

Hi guys,

I'm Michael. I'm travelling to Australia this month and thought I'd sign up to this forum to get chatting to others who are either already out there, or planning to travel later this year! I'll be travelling alone from Birmingham, UK on a working holiday visa and will be landing in Melbourne on May 25th.

Currently considering staying in Nomads - as I've heard it's got a reputation for being a bit of a party hostel (and I don't plan on getting too much sleep during my first week!). Very open minded as to what's happening after that - though I think I'll be travelling up to Darwin for the world cup - with a view to getting a job.

Would be nice to speak to anybody that's either A) Already out there in Aus B) Planning to travel later this year C) Has already been and has some great advice / stories to share. It'd be fantastic to hear from anybody else travelling to Melbourne / flying from Heathrow May 22nd (as you'll be on my flight!).

That's about it for now - take care!

Alright Mike!
Yeh, I'm doing pretty much the same thing.
I arrive in Melbourne 16th June on my own also.
Give us a shout...

Hi Mike!

I'm currently in Melbourne, arrived last week. I'm not really sure where to head after here, would like to get stuck into some regional work if I can & get it out the way!
Anyway let me know if you want a buddy to explore Melbourne with as I'm here on my own too :)

Hey :)

I'm heading over to Melbourne on my own 4th July! Looking to maybe stay there to work though! But If you're still there in July, give me a shout too!
