Hi everyone who comes and reads this, I'm landing feb3 in Sydney this my first Solo trip and I'm just seeing if anyone want to maybe meet up and show me around or meet up and explore Sydney ourselves, I'm 22 very friendly/social and CANADIAN! So if you feel like chilling hitting the beaches and doing some wondering around, around that date send me a message or reply to this and we can see if we can make something happen.

Hey Luke

I have an idea of 3 ish weeks in Sydney because i hear it's expensive and i want to make the some money i have last. I'm backpacking yes and plan on camping it on some beaches and staying in hostels, I plan to hit a lot of beaches and surf work where and when i can, I wanna try and get my Second year visa I have done all sort of construction work for 5 years and i hear you can receive it from 88 days work in construction and that's not much, not sure when, but i would like to make my way up the the coast towards cairns. How about you?

Hey Hendrik,

I've been in Aus for 3 months now working in Brisbane/Gold Coast, and I'm starting my travels in January.. so I'll be in Sydney from end of Jan/beginning of Feb :)

I think I'm staying in a warehouse that's being converted to an arts/music centre for 2ish weeks, not sure of dates though, sometime in feb. You work two hours a day and get food/accomadation, it looks pretty cool :)
What are your plans??

Hey Hendrik
I'm only going to spend a week or 2 in Sydney as you said heard its expensive & want my money to last. I've no plans set in stone just going to see what happens when I get over there but I want to travel up the coast towards the gold coast diving & doing as much stuff as possible along the way. Haven't really thought about camping was just going to stay in cheap as possible hostels but Id say you'd get a great laugh camping.

Hey Luke,

So I'm possibly meeting up with a guy from the UK around the 5th of Feb, I'm probably booking at the Palms backpackers considering it's only $20 AUD a night, might not be the cleanest but at least i can save some money and not worry about being kicked out when i come back drunk and a little loud at night. :D. If i stay at a place that's 30$/night its over 400$ in 2 weeks and that's a little overboard, Plams is about $260/2 weeks that's affordable. I think camping on the beach the nights that i can would be pretty fun I'm sure there is a lot of other doing the same so I'm going to try it out and see at some point in my travels. I just took my Padi Scuba course and will be looking at achieving my Open water ticket ASAP when i get into Australia taking all the pool classes and class room work already.
So do you have an Idea of transportation your going to use or take to get up the coast? just trains/buses and catching rides with other backpackers? that's kind of my plan and see where it takes me, im sure m plans will change quite often.
