Hi, my name's Jo, I'm 31 SWF, travelling alone for the first time to Australia after my travel companion let me down - yesterday!!!

I leave London on 15th december to get to Oz for 17th, landing in Sydney. Not really sure where's best to go coz I've never been before so helpful hints would be appreciated.

I'm also nervous about spending my birthday, Christmas and New Year alone in Oz - anone out there wanna meet up? Would be great to hear from you...

Im getting to Oz 5th Dec, flying up to Brisbane on 6th and spending couple of weeks coming down the coast. Should get to Sydney about 20th December. Would be great to meet up, I don't want to spend Xmas and NYE alone and there seems to be quite a few people up for meeting in Sydney.

I have started to look into booking a hostel over the Xmas period as apparently Sydney is heaving with backpackers over Xmas. I emailed YHA hostel today to see if they have any free beds.
