Hi ! Just mainly wondering if anyone will be there then. I wont be travelling alone, I'll be going with my friend Gemma, we are both 19. We will be working in Sydney for 2 months when we get there and are planning on starting the Oz experience sometime in April if anyone was planning on doing something similar it would be great to hear from you. We're both new to travelling but it's all booked now and we're counting the days !!

Hey, going to get there 23rd of feb, cant wait travelling alone so its a bit daunting but I reckon I will meet loads of people in the hostels.
Going to travel up the east coast to Cairns then onto Alice Springs then dont really know! Got a greyhound kilometer pass so I can go at my own pace. May work in Sydney depending on how much money I have saved and whether I can get a job!
Have a good time! :-)

Travelling alone is the only way-i could not have the same person/people for months on end. it's nice to have familiar faces for a couple of weeks!

Nothing can top travelling alone! Your guaranteed to meet people.

Hi Emily,

Im going for 6 weeks at the beginning of March, and doing the east coast around the end of March. Im not working though, just travelling and having some fun

I just have to book my flights now, cant wait. I might do it with STA travel but not sure. Anyway hope you have a fantastic time, kinda nervous as im on my own but quite excited as well lol. Im sure you'll have a blast, loads of people have told me how good it is going to Oz.

Have fun!

Hi emily,

Im thinkin of doin the something similar arriving in Sydney early March workin for a while then heading up the coast. Oz experience appeals as im travelling alone and by all accounts has a young party atmosphere how far up are you intending to go and over how long im thinkin 6 months and finishing in cairns, workin along the way if & when i need to top up funds do you no if oz experience caters for this kind of plan?

cheers fred
