I'm flying from manchester - Melbourne with Cathay Pacific on the 11th January 2016, I didn't know who else was going to be on that flight or going to be in Melbourne as im flying over on my own?

Hi Nic, that's great! In going over in January to visit family first but i want to visit Melbourne with fellow travellers! So if you want we could maybe see some of Melbourne together?

Hi Andrew, I'm starting in Melbourne then find out about work in Perth next week, but I want to travel up the east coast first up to the great barrier reef then hopefully fly from cairns to Perth to work!!
What's your plan?

Ah that sounds awesome! Actually I'm doing a tour starting at Brisbane and ending at Cairns in mid January (I think- don't quote me on the date haha!). This is after the tour from Melbourne to Darwin earlier, at the start of the month. Would you want to do a tour or just go alone for that bit up the East Coast?

First want to travel up the East coaat from Melbourne so I will probably do one of them tours...but only going to start once I've spoken to this guy in Perth!
What do you do on the tour for Melbourne-Darwin?

Aah how did you go about (hopefully) getting the job? Because I really want to work in NZ. The tour starts at Melbourne, takes you to Adelaide, then to Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon, I think it is and then to Darwin. Although there are lots of places in between I couldn't be bothered to type it all out. Is there some way I can send you the itinerary?

Yeah definitely! Although I'm not sure if it's early or late Jan that I'll be there yet. I'm hoping to spend a couple of weeks in Sydney before setting up camp in Melbourne for a few months, work and save before travelling up the east cost. Then probably settling somewhere else for another few months and save up to then travel through South East Asia. Although that will probably all change as soon as I actually get to Aus haha
