Quoting Laurindarc

Hey, i've just decied to go it alone too, was planning on staying and working in Sydney but think heading north to the warm and travelling back down will def be more fun that hanging out here trying to get job! I'm nervous too, wasn't sure whether to book a bus or not but reading reviews and talking to people makes me think i'm better to just get there and see who i meet and what i fancy doing! Scary tho! Just compiling list of places i may like to stop...lots of good ideas on here, anymore...keep em coming! So many ppl do it....sure will be cool, hoping to just find good hostel when i land in Cairns to get me started...if anyone knows of any good ones pls let me know...

Hey Laurin,

when do you fly into Cairns?

I love this site! I am also going alone, and was super scared but its great that there seems to be so many people in the same boat. I can't wait to go now, and am wishing my time at work away!!
I am flying in to Cairns on 28th October, heading down to Sydney then flying over to Christchurch on 28th Nov, back to the UK for Xmas. Would be great to meet up with some people. I also am leaving a plan for when I get there, but any suggestions of Cairns hostels would be ace x

Not crazy at all! :). I did Australia alone myself. Thing is, you will never be alone, I promise. You will meet heaps of people while travelling. People travelling tend to be more outgoing and social so you'll make lots and lots of friends. Plus people in backpackers are very open. You'll have so much fun :). Travelling the east cost was awesome, I'm very jeaouls! ;).
