Hi all,

Landing in Melbourne for my first solo trip on 16th October, WHV approved and flights booked last week!

My friend is living out there at the moment so have some accommodation for my first week or so but after that I will be jumping from hostel to hostel.

Is anybody arriving out there around the same time? Would be nice to have more than one contact for arriving and getting around for a while.

also does anybody have any preferred/recommended hostels that I could check out before I go. thinking if i get booked into one now I won't be cluttering up my friends floor for too long!

Cheers :)

I'm flying to Melbourne in August, may stay until Sept/Oct... I'll be going from hostel to hostel too so will let you know if I come across any good ones! If I'm still there in October, would be good to meet as currently I have just a couple of friends I know there and would like more!

Hey, how's it going?

Thought this post was long gone ha!

Yeah any help would be great :) Looking at booking into Discovery Melbourne as my first one as there is currently a deal on hostelworld that if you stay for at least 7 nights it's only £13 a night with breakfast and pasta/rice thrown in.

Would be good to keep in touch though even if you do move on. the more contacts the merrier!

Haha, it's all good thanks you? I just had a bout of looking through the forums for anyone going to Melbourne today.

Sorry, replied to your other message on another thread having not seen this! Ahh cool, I need to book actually, haven't looked at anything yet!

Yeah definitely, feel free to add on Facebook (Maya Parmar - I'm with a guy in the photo, sat on a train) and if I'm around in Melbourne still I'll let you know where's good etc!

although I may still be as clueless as when I started, bit worried about this travelling alone malarky ha! x

I'm good too thanks :) It'd the first time I've been on a while so keep finding threads and you are always the latest post, feel like if I keep posting I'll look like a stalker!

Haha I keep talking to people and everybody seems to be just winging it when they get there! I keep having a panic about going it alone but there's got to be hundreds of people all in similar positions so that's keeping my mind at rest for now. I'll see what happens closer to the time though ha!

I'll have a look for you on Facebook now :)

aha am I? Awkward, didn't think about that, everyone's going to think I'm a right keeno haha!

yeah, it'll be fine, so exciting! I'm sure a week before I go I'll start panicking x

Struggling to find you on Facebook (only have my phone when i'm at work ha) I'm Sam Daltry if you are on there, same picture as i have on here :)
