Solo female, 26 yrs arriving in Sydney 7th Jan 05. Have booked hotel in Kings Kross for two nights but have no further plans after that.. Been thinking about going north along the coast but are open to other suggestions too. Anyone who's open-minded, young-at-heart, laidback but sensible who wants to join me?

U do realise that Kings Cross is the Drug/Red Light district of Sydney?

I have heard about Kings Kross beeing sort of seedy, but I've also heard that this is the area that most hostels are located, i.e. the area that I'll most likely will run into other travellers? Or would you say that Kings Kross is so 'bad' that it's not safe for me, as a solo girl, to stay there at all? Reply to this would be much appreciated !

I was in Sydney at Christmas time, the whole place looks like a backpackers paradise, must be because of the Olympics in 2000. If Kings Cross doesnt work out, you could try The Rocks or Darling Harbour on the other side of town.

Hello there :) Norwegian female, age 27, arriving in Oz in Late November-04. Going there all by myself, but going to meet up with another fellow traveller in january. Then we're travelling up the east coast, and after that we'll see. Definitely going to do some diving, watersports, surfing (or at least try...), and have loads of fun on our way! Would be good to hook up with others as well, so feel free to drop me a line. Take care :)

Hi Peeps.

I am travelling in Australia for about 6 months up to a year, as I got one year working visa. Arrive in Sydney on the 3 Dec. Staying with friends for a month and meeting a very cool girl from Norway to start travelling up the east coast (Explore The Great Barrier Reef) around 3 Jan. We are looking for another 2 easy going backpackers to explore the east coast with. We are travelling on budgete and might work along the way as well, as fruit picking is in season.

My Email is: -snip, use message center-

If anyone is interested drop me a line and we arrange to meet in Sydney for a drink or two :) and see how it goes.
