Hi everyone,

I just want to butt in too Hahaa . I did 18-day-travel in Spain with 50 litres backpack, that's enough during summer. So I am thinking to use the same one with a small suitcase this time. If necessary, I can lock my valued things in suitcase when living in Sharehouse. (Heard from other backpackers, some robbery cases happened in Share house before )

Going to arrive Brisbane on 11 June, firstly will do farm work for 2nd visa and heading up the east coast (maybe from Cairns and down to Sydney), after that wanna stay in Sydney for NYE. But everything can change and not set in stone.

Keen to meet new friends during the journey.;)

Hi Jess,

I’m looking to go out to Oz in September too! I think I will probably end up going alone as its hard to find someone who will seriously commit to a year in Australia and I know I will meet other people out there too. I currently have no plans but ive looked into the hop on hop off bus tour from Sydney to Cairns which is about £250-300 and I thought I could just make stops on the way and stay in hostels. I also want to work over there as I only have about £4000-5000 to go over with so im going to apply for a WHV soon. Have you applied for one yet? I’m scared to go alone but im hoping to meet people out there and as Im quite happy to do whatever and have no plans I can hopefully make plans as I go along and if I meet someone heading the same direction I could maybe tag along until I find small jobs or something. Would you want to do it completely alone or would you consider starting off with a travel buddy ? xxx
