Hey Lucy! I'm a 22 year old that will be traveling Oz alone in Dec.! If you somehow end up in Melb we could meet up. Would really love to find people who'd be down to do a couple days on the GOR. However, I'm thinking more of taking a tour to kind of leave the hassle of everything to the tour company and I can just relax.
p.s Have you tried reaching out to Australians through couchsurfing? Might be a good place to ask questions as well, as there are people who will open up their homes to you. Or who will want to show you around. I've already been offered places to stay for xmas and have been told of potential parties for lonely travellers. But people are very open. I myself will be spending half my time with a couchsurfer from Brisbane who I met in Las Vegas.
im gunna head to melbourne about feb march time i fink u gunna be there stil what is the GOR lol yer a tour wuld probably be less hassle oh wow thanks for the info ill have a look at that soon x
Hey Lucy! I am Bekki, your plans sound exactly the same as mine!! I land into oz on 7th Nov, completely alone eeeek so scared but really need to get somewhere to stay sorted asap before everywhere gets fully booked! I want to spend xmas and new year in sydney, try get a job etc then travel up the coast to brisbane and melbourne etc. When do you arrive in Sydney? You sound like your well organised with where you are staying while your there! i need to get cracking! We should defo meet up its so nice to know that so many other people are doing it on their own too! Are you on facebook? Add me on there and we'l chat, my name is Rebecca Parker and my profile pic is 2 girls with blue outfits on! Xx
Hi! I'm 24 and also travelling alone in Oz, so good to know there are so many others doing the same thing! I can't decide whether to go in November or wait til after xmas and go in January, was worried about ending up being alone over xmas! But seems there are so many people doing the same thing that it'll prob be okay! I was also planning on starting in Sydney and staying in hostel for a few weeks while getting settled.. Have no idea about plans after that though, so its good to hear what other people are doing, makes it a bit less scary
thankyou everyone for your advise much appreciated i will be very aware im arriving in sydney at 10 30 at night how would you suggest i get from the airport to my hostle and will it be safe
You can get the train direct from Sydney airport to the main Sydney central station for about $10 I think. They run pretty frequently up until midnight and you will perfectly safe on there. Bounce hostel is right next to the station, just need to get the right exit and its bang opposite where you come out so again no worries.
I'm flying into Sydney and then directly to Cairns on Nov 2. I plan on spending the following three weeks trekking down the east coast to check out Whitsunday, Brisbane, Gold Coast, etc, and I'll be ending with a few days in Sydney, prob around the 18th to 21st. I'm going solo and would be more than happy to meet up with anybody who'll be in the area at the same time.
Im 23 year old male currently living in devon in the uk. Im planning on flying out on november the 21st and arriving in sydney on the 23rd. I think maybe stay in bounce for the first 4-5 nights as everyone seems to rate it then maybe move on to somewhere else maybe the asylum.
