I'm Ben, 26 from California. Arriving into Melbourne early/mid October after a short adventure in New Zealand. I'll be in Australia for awhile, maybe a year?

Looking for fun people to meet up with who might want to travel around the country a bit. Might be working along the way or stop in a city/town that calls to me.

I'm always up for an adventure or just lounging on the beach. Let me know if that interests anybody! Can always chat more on facebook.

Hiya both

I'll be arriving into Melbourne 25th October if either of you will still be around :) got a 7 day package booked but after that not much planned other than maybe try and find work before heading to Sydney for Xmas/ new year

Hey Dan,

No plans on where I'll be Melbourne yet. Still looking into booking a hostel for the first week or so. Any suggestions? I hear the city isn't crazy huge so I imagine I'll look for something fairly central. What about you?

Hi Roxy,

I'll most likely still be in Melbourne around that time. Would be cool to meet some fellow travelers. Sydney for New Years sounds like fun! We should meet up in Melbourne

Hi Ben!

I will in Melbourne just a few days before you, I'm a solo traveller as well, with no plans, and it would be so nice to meet up! I haven't found a hostel either, will try to look at it within the next few days and book for maybe the first week.

If you want you can add me on Facebook :) Christina W├Âldike Bested
