Hey there,

I'm Brayden, a 21 year old male from Canada. I'm looking to travel to Australia early 2006 on a 1 year working visa. Hoping to work in Sydney for half the time, and the remaining time I'll travel. I'll be travelling alone, and would be awesome to meet up with anyone else on the journey. Drop me a message, and we could always exchange e-mails!

Take care, Brayden.

Hi Sophie,

I'm also looking to travel up the East Coast. What plans do you have in mind? Have you done this before? Drop me an email, maybe we can talk more OZ

Hey Brayden,

I'll also be travelling up the east coast of OZ from end of Jan to begining of March. I've never done it before, but that shouldn't be a problem for anyone! From what I understand it is really easy to buy a car and sell it again in OZ - a cousin of mine is currently doing it driving around the whole country (he's taken about 7 or 8 months). And, I saw somewhere that there is a HUGE market to buy and sell cars especially for travellers.

I'll be starting in Melbourne and finishing in Cairns. I haven't sorted out a route yet, kind of daunting considering there is sooo much to see.

Sophie, yet again I see your name popping up. I'm a 23 year old girl who just wants to get away from starting a career and real life. So if either of you want to get in touch, send me a message!

Dunno if this fits in with anyones plans, but Im driving from Perth to Alice Springs and then on to Cairns. Got room for 1 or 2 people if your willing to share petrol costs. Will be going sometime towards the end of feb 06/ beginning of march 06.

We have all the camping gear, fishing rods, stove, jerry can etc. All you need is yourself.

Hey Brayden,

I'm from Calgary and was thinking of hitting up Australia on a working visa around the same time, and i also want to spend 1/2 the time in Sydney. If you need a travelling mate send me an e-mail and keep me up to date as to what you might be wanting to check out.

Hi, I'm arriving in Brisbane on the 31 January and travelling up the East Coast as far as Airlie Beach. Only have 10 days to do it in though!!! If anyone is interested in meeting for a drink then let me know and maybe we can arrange something. Travelling on my own so it'll be great to get to know some people before I arrive.

Love, Carly :)
