hey!! Im a 23 year old girl from munster, i am going hoping to go to Australia sept/oct . I do know friends in perth and other areas in Australia. I was meant to travel with my friend but due to family circumstances she can not travel. I am very nervous about the flight etc on my own. I love going out and having fun and i am up for the craic so I would prob make some friends but I am so nervous about everything. Is there any one else in a similar situation? I am useless with directions etc and am very nervous. Has any1 got any advice , tips? Im very nervous about the flight, arriving there, i have no plans as such of weather i am going to go through somewhere on the way to Australia etc, any suggestions at all would help or if anyone else is looking for a travel partner etc,
thank you,
Sarah xxx

Hi munstergirl,

Im 30 from Dublin and at a point in my life where if i dont do it now I never will and will always regret it so im putting a hold on my career and going for it. Looking to head out around end of oct. I am looking into the visa now, do you have yours? if so how much did it cost you? as i think ill go wor kingthe working visa. My plan is to base in Sydney and travel the east coast from there. I too am going it alone!! My main concern is staying in a shared room in a hostel as I never have before. you hear so many horror story's but unfortunatly Im not rich enough to do it in a 4* hotel lol. What plans do you have, if any?

Hi girls!

I'm from Ireland and planning on going to Australia (currently on my own!) in August 2012.

Just found this thread and am wondering how it went/is going for you???

Great to see I'm not the only one that took this notion!

Michelle :)

Hey Everyone :)
Its reassuring to see so many people all with the same idea of heading off on a grand adventure! Im leaving Ireland as well on the 12th May and heading for Sydney all by myself....Cant wait Im going to do Ozintro for the first week, I think its a great way to meet people and have been speaking to a few people who have done it and every one said it was one of the best weeks of their life!
Anyone else in Sydney around this time or traveling in this date add me on Facebook (Deirdre Ferry) and we can catch up further :)

I'm Charlotte, 23 from UK. Planning on arriving in Perth middle of May (booking flights tomorrow) and hoping to meet people as I'm travelling alone. I'm then flying to to Cairns and travelling south down the Gold Coast to Sydney. Anyone got any similar plans?
