Hello there everyone!

My friend and i are travelling to Oz in October. We are starting off in Sydney and will be there until after the new year! We then hope to move onto melbourne! If all goes to plan we hope to stay for a year! Would love to hear from anyone who may be travelling around the same time for advice etc or to meet up once down under!!!

Hi Louise,

I'll be doing my first ever adventure in Oct and will be heading to Sydney first. If this is your first time it would be great to meet up with some fellow travel 'virgin's to help get over the shock of being a million miles from home!!!

Where else (apart from Sydney and Melbourne) are you planning on going?

Hey Louise,

I'm not sure on my departure date as yet but hope to be in Sydney for xmas and NY - I was in Sydney last new year (only on holiday) - and can't wait to get back there - I expect I too will try and get into Wake Up! (it's the best hostel in town - but you have to book early for xmas and new year!)

I haven't been to Melbourne yet but have heard it's amazing and hoping to get there for around mid 2008.

Yeah this is my first adventure! Arrgh!! Really looking forward to it though! After Melbourne we are going up to Brisbane and Cairns and then moving round towards Perth. Going to do some work aswell to boost the cash!! What are your plans after Sydney??
