mark99_7 has indicated that this thread is about Australia

So I'm 19, from England and heading to Oz for the first time on my own; well to be honest it's the first time I'm heading anywhere on my own!
Just looking to meet similar people who are heading out the same time, doing the same time etc. Would like to exchange advice/tips and things on this subject. I'm new to the whole forum thing so bear with me! Or add me on Facebook or something if you'd prefer!

Thanks, Mark.

Ok sweet, yea got accommodation for the first 5nights sorted, but nothing apart from that. I've booked with a company who sort you out with jobs and bank account so that shouldn't be a problem. Land in Sydney on the 19th, any idea where your headed first?

Hi Guys,

2 of us are flying into the Gold Coast on the 3rd of July! We are both 20 year old boys! We have WHV for the year, not planning on working for the first 6 months, dependant on money obviously! After a week on the Gold Coast we're flying up to Cairns and then working our way down to Sydney! We haven't made any concrete plans yet, although we know what major things we want to do/see we aren't really putting a time frame on anything, just going to take it as it comes!

Can't wait now! x
