Hey! I'm Helen and i'm thinking of going to Australia in August for a few months. I'm looking for a travel buddy as its a bit daunting to be going alone! I'm 24 years old and i'm Irish. Anyway if anyone is interested let me know! :)

Hi Jen, thats cool your going around the same time! I'm planning to go for around 6 months. I'll probably get the 1 year working visa. I'll see how i get on, if i like it i might stay longer! Have you everything booked and are you going to travel to to other cities aswell as perth?

Hey Niamh, thats cool your heading over to Aus on your own too! I'm not totally sure where i'll go first but was thinking of starting out in Cairns and then working my way down the east coast. Have you anything booked and where are you going first? Iv nothing booked but will proabaly decide in the next couple of weeks what i'm doing :)

I wouldn't book anything ahead of time, just go there and see what happens. Maybe find a hostel for the first few days in the city in which you arrive but I wouldn't book too many days because if you don't like it, you won't get a refund.
I never had any trouble finding a bed (then again, I wasn't there during summer). Also, a lot of the day or several-day trips like snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef are much cheaper if you buy them in combination with other deals from companies such as Peter Pans. They have offices everywhere.
