Hey Guys!
I am travelling alone (ahhhhh am I mad?) to Australia at the beginning of November this year! I am starting in Melbourne hoping to travel the Eat coast through to Cairns. Just checking in to see if anybody has any good tips on places to visit and stay. Also, what scares me the most how easy is to make friends.. don't like the idea of being a loner haha! ;)

Hey Kelly

I am heading out abit before you, I arrive on the 17th July. I will be in Sydney till around xmas time with the plan of travelling the east coast when the good weather arrives. If you are going to be in Sydney around that time let me know and we can meet.

Making friends really depends on how out going you are im travelling alone as well. Just be confident and get involved, that's what I keep telling myself lol

As for places to go im just winging it, guess as you meet people you can just jump on the band waggon with them.

Hi Jay,

Ahh cool, not too long to go for you! I bet you're very excited?! Are you planning on working? I plan on staying in Melbourne for a few weeks and then head to Sydney late November/early December. Yes, would be cool to meet up. You can let me know how the making friends thing is going lol!

Hi Kelly :)

I'm going to Aus at the end of November but I'll be starting in Sydney. I'm travelling with a friend but I wouldn't worry about meeting people I know a few people who have been and they met so many people straight away
