I'm an australian citizen as i was born there, so i do not need a visa. One less thing for me to worry about which is good

When I first arrive I'll be staying with family for a day or two, then heading down to Canberra to see more family for another day, back up to Sydney but then I'm thinking of staying in a hostel there before I head up the east coast to get my bearings and meet fellow travellers, I think it'll make it easier.
