hey

I'm heading to Australia alone and wondering if anyone else was heading late August or early September.
Not sure where I want to head first but was thinking somewhere East near Sydney or Melbourne and work on a farm for a few months to extend my visa and start traveling. Wondering if anyone else is on the same path or doing something similar as me
It's almost June and have 3 more months or and so excited!! That's all I talk about at work and with friends/family

Also looking for any tips for a new overseas traveller !

I'm heading over to Australia in early September. I plan to be in Sydney for a while and in Australia for four months before heading over to Auckland New Zealand. I'm going through the BUNAC program. I'm pretty excited a well!

I've traveled overseas before but never to Australia. I spent a semester in France and really that best thing I can think of is to pack light and to keep an open mind towards culture differences and new experiences.
