Heya, im Natt. im heading out to OZ in november time and doing the OZ intro thing.
This will my first time traveling too, and pretty nervous about it, but it should be amazing! Its cool to see that there are loads of people in the same shoes here haha.
Does everyone just plan to jam it out in hostels and campsites and just live off of temp jobs and such, because thats all i plan to do?

Hey i went to Oz in Feb 2008 on my own and i was sooooo nervous and found these forums a great help.

I didnt do Oz Intro but ended up travelling with some people who did and they said it was great (though expensive). I met loads of people when i arrived (after spending about an hour on the phone home crying saying i was getting the first flight back). If you stay somewhere like Wake Up hostel in Sydney and do the organised activities you'll meet loads of people, and waaaay more people than you think are travelling on their own!

It was the best thing i ever did had the best year of my life. Hoping to go to New Zealand and Asia in 2010. Hope you all enjoy your trip!

Hello everyone!!!
I have just read everyone's post and i think we are all feeling exactly the same, which is great really lol
I'm Laura and i've just turned 24 i'm off in Feb arriving around the 25th, i haven't booked anything yet but do have my visa! I think I'll start off in Sydney as thats where most people start so be good to meet fresh travellers, i'm not doing oz intro but may be doing the ozexperience up the east coast anyone else doing this?

i'm very nervous about travelling on my own as i'm quite shy but after reading these posts i reckon everyone will be pretty friendly.
I think we should all meet up there!!:)

Iam a bit clueless on this whole thing tho, i have no idea what to take, or insurance etc so if any one has any tips for me give me a shout! or if you want to get in touch please feel free! Be good to meet a couple of you guys out there!
Good luck everyone!!!
