Hi everyone,

I'll be going to Australia next month on a long holiday.
Still not too sure what to do but I fly into Sydney and as I'll be on my own I hope to tag along with anyone I may happen to meet. Really want to see the Great Barrier reef so will probably head up the East coast with that in mind.
If anyone is in Australia around the same time please feel free to get in touch.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Probably only gonna be on the gold coast for a month or 2, then head elsewhere.
Sydney, Melbourne, Perth..all on the map of places to go.
But I also wanna head inwards as well, see if I cant find me some interesting things to do in central.
Im pretty much up for almost any location.

Hello mate, I've just got to Oz but have family stuff to do for the next week and so start my backpacking proper after that. I'm thinking of buying a cheap car/camper and driving around the whole country (i'll be starting in Sydney). So if you like to join me for some/all of the travelling or just for a few beers let me know.

sounds good, though i'm not licensed i'll defo go splits on petrol.

well I'm going to be starting my travelling proper in just over a week in Sydney. I might hang out in Sydney for a couple of weeks though just because I've met some great people there but then after that I would be heading north up the east coast . When is the Melbourne cup? I will be going to Melbourne but i have no idea when. No worries on the no liscence thing as I quite enjoy driving as long as you've got petrol/beer money and and some bad jokes I'm happy. Let me know what you think.
