Hi there,

My name is Ben, 28 from the UK and I am planning on going out to Australia around summer time this year, probably on a WHV. I have no concrete plans as of yet but i'm considering taking up some seasonal work just to qualify for the 2nd WHV then from there maybe travel up the coast from Sydney to Cairns. All my friends are either married, have kids, debts or work commitments so what i'm looking for is anybody else in the same boat as me. If anyone is interested then please let me know!

Hi there,

I'm Abi, i'm 31 and i have a residents visa to Oz and am planning on going out sometime in July 2010... i don't want to have to get a job as soon as i arrive (I think i will probably end up settling in Sydney but i'm not sure yet) . My plan it to fly into Darwin and meander down towards Sydney but going via Uluru... i would like to get a vehicle and do things kind of rough and natural, camping, outdoors, fires, beer and casual work along the way.. if you think you might be a around the same place at the same time and like to sound of this sort of travel it would be great to hear from you!

Hey Abi,

My plan is to hit Sydney around July / August time and after a week or two of chilling out find some seasonal work. Once i've done enough for a second WHV then I want to travel, probably by renting a camper van (buying a vehicle seems more expensive and hassle with the paperwork). If you're in the Sydney area between July and October I guess we could end up crossing paths, maybe go for a few beers or whatever!
