Hi guys,

I'm looking for some travel companions for my time in oz (I'm a female, 25 from Essex). I hope to arrive early December and stay until February. I want to start at Cairns and work my round to Melbourne s was thinking Xmas Brisbane and NYE Sydney. Is anyone thinking the same or similiar?

And should I be looking to book soon - it just seems so far away and I am worried my plans will change

Thanks y'all

I fly to Cairns 26th September and travel down the east coast to be at Sydney for xmas and new year... Sydney new year books up very very quickly (as i'm finding out now) so i'd suggest booking that, even if you just book it on here you only need to pay the deposit, atleast you'll have it sorted

I will try to rent an appartment. If not it will be a hostell, maybe wake up;)

What exactly happens on NYE? Something special? I know the fireworks. And guess there is enough parties:p some good ones? Where is the place to be?

hey guys, i'm going to Sydney for New Years! so excited! i managed to find a good deal for Backpackers Headquarters on HW so I shouldn't spend too much on accommodation cos I know its normally pretty pricey!!

I leave for melbourne on the 14th of August and will be in Sydney for NYE. I had to call places direct before myself and my mate were able to get in anywhere. We are staying at WakeUp and it cost around £200 for a weeks acom so book asap!

Anyone who is in Melbourne in August? Im travelling alone so welcome any company!!
