All right everyone...Heading out to Melbourne the first week of November. Seems Base @ St Kilda is where it's at when first arriving - so will be booking up for a week very soon. Plans from there are fairly vague like most people on here - aim is certainly to find work within the first month to begin funding travel elsewhere. Would love to travel anti-clockwise around the country ending in Perth next autumn - but I'm sure there will be a few unexpected turns along the way. Would be great to chat to anyone in Melbourne around this time or with similar plans further down the line. Feel free to send across a message or add me on Facebook. Cheers for now, Oli.

Hi EVERYONE,
I'm planning on travelling to Melbourne the start of November also. I'm travelling from Ireland and travelling alone so I very nervous its my first time travelling alone. My plan is try to find work as soon as possible in Melbourne. I would love to get to know some people before I go and maybe meet up with when I get there. I would love to know other peoples plans also as I don't know what to except.

Hey guys,

I am planning on coming to Melbourne November 2014- May 2015 on a working holiday visa. I think I will arrive in the city toward the last week in November. I won't know anyone there, so am looking to see if anyone would want to meet up? If anyone is looking for a flatshare, or just a buddy to explore the city with please let me know!

Evening All,
I'm moving out to Melbourne December 4th, got my first weeks accommodation sorted with a family friend and then from there I have no solid plans! Thinking of staying in Melbourne over Christmas and NY, got loads of experience in bars and restaurants so should be easy enough to find a job, especially being as many places should be hiring. But I'll be looking for a flatshare/appt share over that time if anybody else is in the same boat?

After that, probably just road trip anti-clockwise up the coast, camping, hostels, stopping and working wherever is good! Feel free to add me on facebook, Joseph Shirt, if you have any similar plans:) Providing you are up for a laugh and can drink a beer that is!

-Joe
