Hi guys,

Travelling to OZ in June/early July 2015 most likely. Was thinking of starting in Sydney and doing a tour up the East Coast so I am booked onto something to meet people. Not decided yet on where to start and planning on a year to begin with!

Anyone thinking of going at this time of year and want to travel up the East Coast? Or is it best to start higher up and work my way down?

Going solo and would like a companion to do a tour or travel with.

Look forward to hearing from you guys!

Cat :)

I am planning to travel the east coast of Australia by myself too!

I land in Melbourne on 15th June and was planning to spend 4 days there. Then I'm flying to Sydney. Will be travelling from Sydney up to Cairns. Then I fly home on 27th July. I have booked hostels for when I'm in Melbourne and my last night in Cairns. Other than that I don't have anything booked.

Charlotte, when are you in Sydney?
You leave cairns a one day after I get there, but our syd dates might match up :)

Hi Charlotte & Kit!

I will be in Melbourne on the 21st June, then going onto sydney on the 28th June for around 2 weeks. So I will be a bit later than you, however I might catch up with you en route!!

Be good to know a few people in the same position before I go! :)

Kit, are you going anywhere else after Sydney?

Hi girls!

I arrive in Sydney on 20th June and then trying to decide on my plan for a week whilst my friend is with me and then she leaves on the 28th so after that I am all alone!!

I want to do the east coast after this and have some fun travelling around for a while.

Hannah we could meet in Sydney on the 28th!

Excited! Would love to meet other girls all in the same position as me. X

Hey cat!

Yes that sounds fab- you will have gotten your bearings in Sydney after spending time with your friend!! I wouldn't know where to start haha.

How long are you allowing yourself to do the east coast? Will you be on a working visa?
