I'm planning on a trip to Aus hopefully starting sometime in September! I'd much rather not go by myself so I'm just wondering who's out there :) I don't have any solid plans yet, just want to go exploring

So if ya fancy a travel partner gimme a shout

Sounds good. I want to see as much as I can and I have no deadlines/time restraints so pretty much anything is good for me. I'm just not totally sure when I will be going yet, like I said I'm hoping for September some time.

Hi all, I'll be in Sydney in September and then going up the east coast banana picking, diving and probably stay near mission beach. Would much like to meet up with some people doing a similar thing before I head off.
drop me a message if that sounds good.
Cheers Malcy

Banana picking? haha that sounds interesting.
I'm think it would be easiest for me to start off with Travellerscontactpoint which has a similar program to Ozintro but cheaper I believe. Just to get me started off and get some idea of what kind of work is available out there. I don't necessarily want to start working right off the bat though. Would definately like to do some adventures first :D

Hi Folks,

I'm all booked up for arriving in Cairns on 27th Sept. Nothing set in stone yet, but I plan to buy a Greyhound pass when i arrive and travel as far as Sydney hopping on and off. Meeting a friend in Melbourne on 10th November before flying across to Fiji... so, the East Coast is my playground for around 6-7 weeks. Anyone planning a similar route, fancy meeting up? Give us a shout ;-)

Well I've finally got my flight booked for Dec. 30, so I'll be landing in Sydney on Jan. 1 just missing New Year's eve :(
Anyone else going to be in Sydney around that time? Would like to meet up with some people just so I don't feel so alone haha. This is my first time doing something like this. Pretty excited about it. I don't have any solid plans for where I want to go or what I'll be doing. I'm 25 yr old female from Canada hoping for some ideas and good companions :)
