Well I have I rang the travel agent and she said for about 1300 I could go from London - Cairns - Perth (My family live here so wanted to see them before I fly home - Thailand - London or Im assuming the other way round. It seems to be cheaper to do it that way then booking all the individual flights.

Im emailed Thaintro as the monsoon is in October so could be loads of flooding, else guess Id have to do it on the way home when its dry season.

Will you be flying from London?

Thats very similar to the route I will be doing, not sure on dates yet though. I was looking into getting one of the train tickets that you can hop on and off from Cairns down to Melbourne. I'm flying to perth in May, then work dependant could be in Cairns any time from June to October.

Well I'm going home this weekend so gonna try and get some prices etc and hopefully start booking, I'm only planning on getting one way as I have no intention of coming back anytime soon!!! Would prob be flying from manchester if poss but my friend who went in nov said he got his one way for £420 from London which was bout £100 cheaper so I will look into both!!

Have some fam out there too so gonna speak to my mum this weekend see where they are hopefully means I can stop off somewhere for a little also one of my bestfriends is in Brisbane!!

Added you on fb xx

Hi charlotte,

I land in Cairns September 26th, we're booking gilligans resort which seems pretty good think its arounf £12 per night, looks like a good place to party so having a little holiday before we start moving down ha

Not 100% on the plan for the coast yet probably just move as and when we feel but fruit picking seems good

Yeah I was thinking of maybe travellers oasis, have so many things I want to do in Cairns :)

I think im going for about six months as have an ill parent and not sure if I could leave for 12 although I would love too.

I cant make up my mind whether to stay in Sydney for xmas and new year or fly to Perth as have an auntie there. Kind of thinking with going with Sydney as I can go and see my family after.

We should def keep in contact and meet up whilst over for a drink, the Woolshed seems to be the place to go over there!
