TravKid has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Hi all,

I am heading to Australia, Sydney on August 19th. I'm looking to travel the east coast, ending up in and around the area of Cairns, where I would preferably stay for about 2 weeks to hit some sunshine! (Departing from Sydney late September.)

Will anyone be in Sydney around 19th-23rd August??? I'm a tad nervous about being there alone. If anyone else is in the same position, I would be more than happy to meet!! Send me a private message or reply here and I can add you on Facebook or something!

Thanks.

Sounds cool, are you travelling also, or a Sydney local?

Also guys, I am currently looking to buy a decent hiking rucksack for my travels. I am looking at a 65L Regatta Endure Survivor rucksack, £35 on ebay - bargain or not!??

Sounds cool, i only have 8 days until i leave now cannot wait! As far as preparation goes, all I have done is booked a hostel in Sydney for a few nights. I'm planning on being completely flexible depending on what others do!

Random question here, but has anyone ever flew with Asiana Airlines?

Even better, anyone flew with them to Sydney, via Incheon airport, South Korea. I found a bargain price which is great, but at the same time I'm a little nervous at possibility of sacrificing quality!

Hello

JoanneC84 i was in Perth visiting my family last Christmas and it was amazing you will have a boss time! I'm going down the east coast next year and also back to Thailand. I should be in Aus middle of Feb (flying to Sydney and working my way up to Cairns) - it'll be good to meet up if you're there the same time. My plans have been up and down but i'm finally settled on leaving late Jan now.

I noticed you're from Liverpool too - i live on the Wirral!

I think you'll be grand and have the time of your life!

:o )
