I am planning to take a wee scoot to Australia in September and would love a travel partner to have a few laughs with enroute. I hope to leave from Belfast or Dublin but may consider leaving from London or other major UK airports. I am not sure of what stopover I am going to take on my way there yet, so open to suggestions (I was thinking of Hong-kong).

I plan to spend about a year in the land of Kangaroos and sad tv soaps and then hop over to New Zealand for about 6months before returning through Asia.

I am a 25year old male from N.Ireland (and a very handsome one at that hehe), up for just about everything and anything, so if you want some company on your way to Oz and possibly have a wee bit of craic when we get there, give my a shout.
Cheers Beers,
Jono...

sweet sweet... When were you thinking of going and for how long? I am hoping to leave sometime in September, but quite flexible in the wheres and whens at the mo. Even if we had separate plans when we get as far as Oz, it may prove valuabel to have someone to travel with for the first few days..

Hi,
I am also thinking of traveling to Australia as from Sept (Give or take a couple of weeks as I will have to ensure my house is safely rented out!) but hopefully no later than late Sept! Like you I would also like to continue travelling after the year is up! Get in touch and maybe we can help each other out!

I am planning on heading to Oz in the beginning of January 2005 for approximately 6months. I intend on seeing as much I can (as far as my money will take me!!)

I am heading to NZ first for a couple of weeks to catch up with friends, then my proposed plan of action is:

Melbourne,Tasmania,
Sydney - would like to be there for Mardi Gras
Perth - Rottnest Island
Exmouth/Broome - Shark's Bay, Ningaloo Reef (learning to dive)
Darwin - Kakadu National Park - camp?
Uluru
Cairns - Great Barrier Reef
Ayrlie Beach - Sailboat for few days
Frasier Island - camp for few days
Brisbane

At the moment I am going solo, but if anyone is keen on any of the above, let me know.:)

P.S. Catchy title!;)
