Hello All.

New to all this just signed on.

Bit the bullet and off to oz in February, my group has backed out due to work stuff. Does any one have any tips where to stay the first few nights in sydney while I find my bearings?

Also does any once fancy doing the East coast as new people / friends are very welcome?

yeh i went to Oz a couple of months ago only for a few weeks and i really like wake-up! hostel, it's a bit more on the pricey side but worth it, the only thing i didnt like was the kitchen facility but if you're only there to get yourself sorted then i would highly recommend it, i'll prob be going back there end of Jan.(yipee the aussies can put up with me for a couple years!!) It felt quite homely, the bathroom facilities are excellent-i highly rate this! staff are very helpful.

I also went along the east coast-i'll dig out some of my stuff if ya want and let you know of any great places along the way. Mail me if you want any more info.

A couple of great places along the way, must-haves to me were...Magnetic island-stay at backpackers-i loved it, Stay at Koala's in damn...i cant remember, Holiday Inn at Byron bay. there are some great places along the east coast, some must do things, depends on what you like really!

We stayed at the Blue Parrot which was nice and I recommend.
