Hi Guys,

I'll be travelling to Melbourne mid January 2016. I am pretty nervous as its my first solo trip so I'm really keen to chat to a few people and maybe organise to meet up with some people out there! I've not made any set plans but hoping to travel all the way up the east coast, working at some point along the way when I've run out of money which probably wont take long !!

Hiya! I'm travelling to Melbourne solo mid January. Plan to bounce around Melbourne for a bit before heading somewhere else (also will need to work when run out of money 😂)

Hi everyone,

I'm travelling alone from Cairns to Melbourne.
I'm arriving in Cairns on the 28 of january and leave 3 months later from Melbourne, but have no idea of what will happen between those two dates, as I haven't planned anything yet...

I'm a bit stressed because it's my first time travelling so far and so alone !
So I'm looking for a travel companion who would like to spend some days or weeks or months with me or even just grab a beer or something :) ??

Hi Everyone.

I am also looking for a travel partner. I have not planned any dates yet but I would be interested in planning something for a few months with someone.

Carmen, I am interested in travelling with you but are you heading home or just to Melbourn in march? I probably couldn't travel until about April/may. I am already going to Costa Rica in Feb (end of feb). If you were interested and wanted to go with me I would love that. But you would have to change your dates. I don't know if that's something you would want to do. But if you are interested definitely let me know.

Hi guys, I'm travelling to Perth in mid Feb and will be in Melbourne from the start of March before travelling up the east coast. Would be great to meet up with people with similar plans :)

I'm looking to go to Australia in late April/early May time. Going on my own and would be great to speak to others doing the same!

Hi all,

court11, unfortunately I'm already flying to Ireland around the 14th of April and won't be able to change my dates... But If you are between Sydney and Melbourne beginning of April, maybe we could meet? Would be great :)

Paul, I would be happy to join you ! I have no plans either and was looking for someone to go to Uluru. I'll still be around Cairns until beginning February and then also heading to Melbourne. I would be very pleased to meet you so let me know if you're interested in sharing a part of your trip with me...?
