Hi All,

Looking at traveling out to Australia/NZ end of this year just wondered if anyone one on here will be out there at this time. Flying out to Sydney and might do the ozintro thing but not sure yet! but will travel down to Melbourne and then head over to NZ so if any of you are out there between Dec 2016 - March 2017 and would like to meet up then give me a shout.

Cheers :)

Hi Wayne0881,

I'm arriving in Sydney in early November. Not sure of my exact points as of yet, but will probably stay in Sydney throughout Xmas and NY.

Sounds like a plan to me! :) Have you figured out your accommodation yet?

Laura.

I have my first week in a hostel booked so I can get my bearings, but after that I'm doing exactly the same and playing it by ear!

I'm debating looking for accommodation now or when I arrive as I know the prices shoot up & availability is limited over Xmas and the NY.

that's true!! hmmm could be wise to book about now then.... if you see a random crashing on the beach you'll know I didn't book anything

Haha! http://1.tpstc.com/img/emoticons/icon_rofl.gif

I'll probably not book any more accommodation until I arrive.. want to see how the first hostel is..
I figure there will always be a place to sleep right? Even if it is on the beach!

Yea for sure plenty of time to plan ahead just on the flight- i'll draw you your very own king sized bed in the sand - may as well sleep in comfort haha!

i'm gonna look at hostels tonight - just to get an idea!
