I'm headin to Cairns on 5th May on my ownio for God knows how my WHV and going to see how I get on, and that will determine how long i stay. I'm from Belfast, 24 year old fella, and was just wondering is there anyone else from Ireland heading to Australia about the same time.

Take care,

hey there...

Me and a few mates are heading round the world in Sept and will be in Sydney in early Dec.... I'd say you'd be pretty set up by then! I'd say about half the country are over in Aus annoying the locals! Plan is to head up the coast in campervan prob by myself in Jan. Its a bit nerve wreaking going over on your own but you'll be grand...time of your life and all......
sure pm me if you want to tell me about what your plan is!

I'm from Belfast...

I'm not necessarily desperate to be with Irish people over there...but ya know how it can get on the other side of the world on your own.

Just can't wait to finally get over there an see how things go!!

Yeah I know it will be some laugh. Are you stopping anywhere before you get to Australia? I'm going to Hong Kong for two days first.

I'm just heading straight to Cairns! I just wanna get there, get settled for a bit and really enjoy Australia first of all...i think that i'll definately do some stops on the way back, Thailand springs to mind!!

I know a couple of guys who have been to Hong Kong and they say that the place is just a completely different world!!

Where u from yourself?
