Hi everyone!

I have decided to leave Denmark and travel to Australia in the beginning/middle of October, and I have no plans at all! All I know is that I want to travel for about 10 months and a travel buddy would be awesome :)

I would just love to get some advice and ideas from you guys, about where to go? I have been thinking about going to Perth and stay there and work, and then travel so Sydney and then up the Gold Coast. But is it possible to get a job in Perth? Or should I begin my journey somewhere else? I want to do some farmwork, fruit picking or something like that.

If some of you are going to Australia as well and are looking for a travel buddy, then please let me know :)

Can't wait to hear from you!

Thank you so much for your answers :) I think I have found out that it's easiest to get a job around Melbourne, so I will probably be heading there in the beginning of october.

Do you know a nice hostel in Melbourne, Roxy? :)

I've not been before but I'm booked into Base Melbourne in Victoria area from 25th-1/11/14 with a 7 day package to get me started then will see how it is as to whether I book a bit longer there or move somewhere else :)

Any ideas where you might stay?

I haven't booked a hostel yet, but I'm also considering Base :) I'm thinking about staying the first week there maybe, and then find something cheaper.

What kind of intro week have you booked? :)

Hello everyone!

I am planning to do something familiar like that! And I am in doubt of where to go to first, Sydney or Melbourne!? Haven't booked any flight yet because I am currently graduating..
The piece Chris wrote at the top of this page could have been me haha! I am also looking for ideas and tips about where to go and stuff.
