Hey..

I'm travelling to Australia in September 2014 and was wondering if anyone else was travelling also?

I'm looking really to make some friends on my travels so it would be nice to meet up with anyone who is a laugh and want to see Australia.

I'm hoping to start in Melbourne then work up way up to Brisbane. I would like to travel for a couple of months and then find somewhere to settle and work.

Is anyone else travelling long term and fly in September time?

:)

Hi Lknights111,

Welcome to Travellerspoint!

There is loads of people travelling to Australia – I've gone ahead and added this thread to the Travellers to Australia group. Hopefully you can find some people in there to chat with before you go.

Good luck with your planning

Hi Bethan. Ah that pretty much sounds what i would like to do! I think i'll likely work towards a 2 year visa also! :) ive been thinking about doing like the Intro to Oz but i know so many people that got on fine without it so im considering if its worth the cost? Have you got anything planned for when you get there? X

Yeah I'm planning on working for a second year visa too! I'm going to do ultimate oz in sydney from the 15th september but apart from that have nothing planned yet x

Ah awesome! I'm quite nervous about going on my own. But i'm sure there are lots of people to meet. :) :) Are you going by yourself?

I'm trying to save up as much money as possible at the moment... I've heard from so many people how expensive it is in Aussie. I'm wondering how long I can do a bit of travelling for, before having to work!

There will be plenty doing the same as us! I met a girl on here and we've booked to be on the same flights together and stopping over in Dubai together on the way there. Yeah me too have no idea what I'm going to do when I get there yet whether to work or travel first I have no idea. Just have to go with the flow x

Bethan.. I totally agree... to be honest I think I've ended up leaning towards doing the Ultimate Oz after having a proper look at and coming into a bit more cash than expected. :D Woooo. I've also just been granted my WHV!
