12 months in OZ on my own!

I am setting off in january to start my travels up the east coast of OZ for 12 months! To be honest im poo'ing it a little bit, going to the other side of the world on my own! ! Thing isim not going with anyone or any sort of agency or group, i have worked hard and saved up a load of money an i have been looking into this alot, i have decided the best way for me to do this is on my own and go with the flow. It will save me a sh*t load of money and i am an outgoing guy so i wont find it hard speeking to people or asking about anything. And hopefully i can travel withought working for the first few months.

I just want to know the best travelers destinations to meet people, get contacts for work, travel, and the main question, were are the raves at!!

If anyone else is going in january, starting in melbourne, and your in the same predicament as me, feel free to speek to me because i want to speek to you!

Hows it goin people, nice to no people r goin at the same time and doin the same thing as me. Are you booking in a hostel in advance for a bit, im thinkin of booking about 7 to 10 days in one to get my self sorted. An also are you going to use the grayhound or oz experiance? I personally think the oz experience is a waste because there is transport all over the place anyway, i suppose your just payin for the convenience.

And i am fully about taking a trip to thailand at some point for many reasons! The full moon party being one of them!!

Oh what insurance has anyone got/getting? Sta travel tried sellin me 1 for £400 nicker but to be honest i think its bullsh*t, it included extreme ice climbing and some sort of extreme great white shark diving which wont be happenin on my trip i tell ya!!!

Whats up everyone,
Think ill be usein the grayhound or as ye said Tom whatevers nearest/cheapest at the time. Im defo goin to book into a hostel for a few days for when i first get over there just to find me feet. Havent even looked into health insurance yet but hopefully i wont need any great white shark insurance ha. Ive only heard about the full moon party a few days ago I know a couple who are headin over to Oz for a year the 27th of sept & there goin to Thailand 1st for the full moon party in Oct sounds brillant like defo want to go to one.
