hey...im going to oz on 7th feb, hoping to get a job there and have an open ticket home (via new zeland, fiji and america). I'm thinking of staying in oz for about 8 months, probably spending a lot of time in sydney but doing a bit of travelling too. Im going on my own so would be good to meet up with anyone in a similar situation?! or does anyone have any ideas of what to do? ...was thinking about spending first few sdays with an organisation but not sure if its worth the money?!
thanks xx

Hi everyone, i'm flying to perth on the 2nd march, not sure how long i'll be there, maybe a month or so?? before moving on to Uluru/ayers rock........then onto cairns - not to arrive before the start of their dry season, .......then slowly going down the east coast towards sydney......and around to melbourne........adelaide....... but as this plan has evolved thru looking at the climate and reccomendations from lovely peeps here in TP - i'm always open to suggestions!

i have the 12 month WHV - but really have no idea how long i will take on my tour - just gonna take it as it comes!! I'm defo gonna be getting my own van or large car - and will welcome company at any time!!

Hi guys,

I arrive in Sydney on March 2nd - plan to stay for a week to 10 days before getting to Melbourne for the GP, then head back up the East Coast - all the usual stop overs and sights. I have 2 and a hlaf months in Oz. Im travelling alone, slightly nervous but bery excited, and would love to hear from anyone who will be in the 'neighbourhood' at the same time as me, possibley meet for a beer, become a travel buddy or even just bounce a few ideas around.

Be great to hear from you.

Cheers

Lee
