Hi Trent

Thanks for your reply! I was going to go through STA but thought the prices looked pretty expensive.

That's a shame about ozintro as I thought that would be the best thing for me if I'm travelling on my own. I don't a problem with meeting new people, it's just a daunting thought arriving and not knowing anyone. I'll have a look at those hostels in Sydney.

Is anyone going out around October time?

hi saz

i arrive in syd on 13/10. I like u had reservations on going by myself but this site does put ur mind at ease, as there are so many people in a similar situation!
im stayin in wake up, looks excellant, and i may as well stay in a half decent hostel while i have the funds, i am staying for the my 1st 2 weeks, tho i mite cut this short and get a flight to cairns and travel down the east coast!

if u fancy a chat, give me a shout :)

Hi rduff

I arrive in Sydney on 29th October. Yeah it does seem to be that everyone is in the same boat!

Yeah i've looked into wake up hostel looks good! I have the same plans. Hoping to get a flight up to Cairns on the 1st Nov then spend the rest of my time travelling down the east coast.

The YHA hostels look good too and they seem to be everywhere.

How is all your planning coming along or are you just going to go with the flow when you get there?

Hi Saz

Hope you don't mind me chipping in to this conversation. I am booked on OzIntro commencing 13th September and yes I have heard dodgy things about the hostel but I guess it's not going to be amazing accommodation for the price but the way I see it is that its only for a week and its just a base to sleep and eat in so i reckon i can manage it for 7 days then find somewhere better! after that I plan to either work my way up the east coast up to Cairns, or to fly there then work my way down - i'd love to be in Sydney for Christmas and New Year but know its more expensive than other places and everywhere seems to be booked up so may move on to Melbourne...depends what accommodation i can find and who i meet along the way!

my planning is going ok, but just ok, really like this site, but sometimes u log on and read something and theres another thing added to the list lol
im really in 2 minds, have booked my hostel for 2 weeks takin me to the 27th and then thinking of the flight to cairns, but i concerned the 2 weeks will be 2 long (and expensive) in syd so mite just stay a week and then head up.... looking back i should have just flown into cairns, but thats the major decision i have to make... all other things is stuff like cancelling my mob, should i take my laptop etc....

i want to be back in syd for end of nov/early december time and hopefully "settled" for xmas- my finances will do me 2 just after xmas (i hope) but mite be best to try and get work b4 xmas with the hope of getting kept on....

hows ur plans going????

Hey everyone!!

I remember reading this post right back when it first started when I was thinking of going to Oz and now I've booked it!!

Flying out on 25th November - going with Bunac - I know it's probably overpriced, but I did Camp America with a similar organisation and they're good when you're going alone!! So wanted the safety net... Hong Kong on the way over first too which sounds pretty cool, then Sydney!

Anyone else heading out around that time??! X
