This thread is marked as being about Australia

Fed up with the rain and cold of North East England so of to Australia in Feb/March 2004.

Never been travelling before and would like the companionship of a like minded individual. I intend to buy a car to travel around the country and need someone to share the cost. Thinking of starting in Sydney to get a grounding and travel up north once the dry season begins. I am applying for a working visa but do not intend to work unless desperate for money.

Even if companionship is only for the first part of my journey, I would like to hear from anyone also planning to travel at the same time as myself.

Hey Olly

I'm going to be arriving in Sydney at the beginning of March, after spending 4 months travelling around South America.

Sounds like you have the same kind of idea as me - travel around and try to avoid work!!

Give me a shout if you fancy catching up for a beer.


PS. I'm a 24 yr old f from London

Hi Olly,
Im hoping to go to Oz early next year, not yet booked flights but determined to get outta this country and see the real world, Oz and NZ being top of my list. Have you set your travel dates yet? Would love to join you at least for the beginning, hoping to get work once there y'see as can't finance it all without!!

I'll be in Australia/NZ around that time period so maybe we can hook up. I'm a fairly experienced traveller, but I have not been down there yet.


I will also be in South America Dec-Jan. Where were you planning on going?

Hi Dave

I'm doing an overland tour with Overland Club. I start in Ecuador at the beginning of Nov, then we travel aroud Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and finish up in Rio (for the carnival!). In Dec/Jan I guess I'll be around Bolivia/Chile.

I'll be flying from Rio to Sydney, to if we don't catch up in SAm, we could all grab a beer (or two!) down under.

Happy travelling!

Actually, that tour you are taking is exactly what I am looking for, so I signed up! So I guess I'll see you there.

Nice one Dave!

Looks like I'll be seeing you in a few weeks!

Are you still going to Oz/Nz? If so, is this straight from Rio?

See ya!
