Sounds like you already have a plan, east coast then west coast!

Seriously though have a look at what you want to see, mark it out on a map and then figure out how you're going to travel between them. You'll meet heaps of travellers here and your plans will change but it's good to have a general direction to go. There are some great places to visit on the east and west coasts, but don't forget central australia for uluru and the area around Darwin for kakadu and litchfield national park.

You'll probably want to travel up north in Australia between about may to about september otherwise you'll be in the wet season and there is often flooding and road closures.

Check out my travel map/pics for some ideas and have fun!

yeah, that's about all the planning you need. if you got your first place booked up that's it really. It's much easier to sort things out when you are actually there and see where things are.
