My names Gemma and I am planning my first trip to Australia in September 08! I can't wait!
My plans are to fly out to Sydney on the 12th September and stay a week or so there, then do the East Coast with Oz Experience to Cairns. Then visit some family in Adelaide and possibly settle in Melbourne and work!
Is anyone else going to be out ther around the same time who would like to meet up along route?
Be great to hear from you xx

I am arriving in sydney on 29 aug, then making my way up to cairns in about 6 weeks, dont really have any specific plans on where to go or how to get there but maybe we could meet up at some point. Let me know when u find out more
I will be travelling to Oz between 14 and 21 Sept 08, I going to be a lone traveller and very nervous about doing it on my own. I have taken the decision to have a gap from work and go touring and my heart kept going back to Oz, so I'm now looking at possibilities for my year away, would love to meet up once there.
hi everyone! I land in Sydney on 16th August and I'll stay there for a few weeks, then mid september looking to go up the east coast on a bus (ive heard u meet more ppl and its a lot more fun than flying!) Im staying for a year and working too! xx
Im heading to Oz in october. Think im heading to Sydney first of all, then just going to see what happens when I get there. Im going alone so would love to get in touch with some people before i go ( a little scared about going alone!!)
So excited !!
Hey Becky 701 - A bus, really? Isn't that a bit of a trek though? I was looking up trains and planes and they all seem around the same price. Is a bus cheaper?
Also! I'll be in Aus from September, but going to be travelling for a bit, so anyone feel free to gimme a msg !
Sounds like we all have pretty similar plans. I'll be arriving in Sydney on Oct 9th. I'll probably only stay in Sydney for a week or two before moving on. I'll be going w/ the flow, but staying somewhat south (ie Coogee, Byron Bay, etc) until about March '09. Then I plan to head to Cairns and stay there for the remaining 6 mo's or so. I am also looking to find work along the way. Has anyone figured out the Tax # thing yet? I think we need one to work.
Feel free to contact me if you'll be in that area around the same time or have similar plans. It would def be cool to grab a few drinks w/ others from here. Find me on Myspace or Facebook as Justin Paley. Later...
hey looking at slowly going up the coast from sydney to cairns,( taking in some islands on the way), before relaxing for a while and them looking for work (maybe just fruit picking), was wondering if anyone doing the same or if people could recommend the best route and some good stop offs on the way, or any other hints as it my first time in oz.
