Hi I'm Lucy, I’m 23 and planning on travelling alone to OZ, July/August time on a working holiday visa.

Not booked anything yet, but thinking of flying to Cairns and taking it from there.......hopefully working my way down the coast.

Anyone got any similar plans and going to be there at the same time????
Or even just any tips, as I’m totally clueless, down to what to pack and what size bag to take or if i should book my first few days with a company like oz intro?? =]

Hey Lucy, I'm Helen and i think i have similar plans to you. Im going to Thailand for the month of July to 5th August and was then thinking of going on to Australia for 6months or so. I'm also looking for someone to travel with as it would be a bit daunting to go on my own! Have you anything booked yet?
Iv also been looking at Oz intro and it lookis really good. Bit pricey but it would be a good way to meet people!

Helen :)

Hi Jimmy and Helen,

I’ve still not booked anything as of yet, I’m scared I will book it and then not save enough money so I’m going to make sure I have the money and then book the flight as soon as I can. I was thinking about booking with aroundtheworldexperts for a 3 day introduction when I can there so I can find me feet and meet some people. Its loads cheaper than Oz Into, and I think Oz Intro only go to Sydney.

Where are you thinking of flying to is Oz Helen??

I’ve been shopping for my backpack this week and its got me so excited about going.:)

I've seen some people talking about thailand in July etc, I've had advice from someone who lived in Thailand for a year and have been told to stay away from there during the rainy season between June and October!

Hi there,

I am planning to travel to===== Australia in July 2011=====. I am looking for travel mates as I don't want to travel on my own and all my friends are stuck in their studies.
Is anyone interested? I'm 20 years old, female and open for all your ideas. Would be great to get in touch with you.
