Welcome to Travellerspoint!
This article probably covers a lot in terms of general advice.
For Melbourne hostels, Base and Habitat in St Kilda get a lot of love on these forums although I think the city and Fitzroy is more interesting. Try Melbourne Central YHA or The Nunnery.
Hi Lisa, I'll be in Melbourne and East coast Oz from mid March 2015 - what are your plans after Melbourne?
I'm planning on traveling up the east coast for a while anyways then hopefully get a job either farming or somewhere in rural Australia! ?
Planning on hitting Melbourne at the beginning of May and then heading up the east coast to spend the colder months where the sun is, and then probably travelling back down again and setting up home somewhere. JPlegge, what are your plans?
Hi all, I'll be in Sydney from January onwards and plan to do the East Coast at some point! on me todd so would be cool to meet anyone in the same places along the way
I was thinking the same Melbourne for a few months, then Sydney, then Brisbane then head up to the banana hostels in Tully to get a second year visa, do some bungee at Aj Hackett and surfing at the Gold Coast etc.
Have you guys booked flights yet?
I got my visa sorted getting flights soon.
Would be good to get some room mates especially for Sydney it looks mega expensive.
Also if anyone's flying from the UK we can play cards or something make it go in a bit quicker.
hey I'm looking to go to Australia in February! I'll be flying from heathrow I imagine once flights are booked. I want to travel round aus then onto New Zealand! haven't planned any routes yet but hoping to find a travel buddy
How long you in Aus for Jos1990?
If you're still around in May - Jaegar night?
I plan to go for at least 6 months !
