Hi there - my brother has just arrived in Melbourne from Ireland for a years travel around Australia. He's not shy - he's really dead-on and would chat away to anyone- but I don't think he'll have thought of joining a site like this and arranging to meet up with like-minded folks! I wanted to ask - does anyone know of a 'tour' or local organiser that would take him along the Great Road, I think it was Pam on this string that suggested it - he hasn't hired a car so I can't think of how else he would get an opportunity to experience the beaches and views out that way? BTW - he's a grown man of 24, I don't mean to mother him - but he hasn't yet got a phone with internet access so I'm doing a bit of leg work for him!! The last text I got he was checking into the Base Hostel for a week - so if anyone is near the beach in St Kilda look out for a dazed looking Irish lad getting sunburnt and tell him his big sis is thinking about him!! Would appreciate your responses - in fact - any tips, advice, experience I can pass onto him would be excellent!!!

Hi CJ - it's only my brother Dan that is in Australia - unfortunately for me! I am texting him to join up on this thread if he can access the internet so hopefully he'll get in touch soon. Thanks for replying, hopefully you'll meet up

Hi Angela,

I was staying in the nunnery in fitzroy which is a great hostel but now I've moved to a house share for a few weeks. Yeah I'm looking for work at the minute and hoping to stay here a while. Have you managed to do much exploring?

I'm staying one more week in the habitat in St Kilda. Then gonna look for an apartment in the northern part of Melbourne n look for a job. This week mainly just been doing paperwork stuff. Gonna book some tours up for next week. I'm doing the RSA course tomorrow in the city. Unfortuantly I cut my foot n it's got infected so I can hardly walk at the moe so may have to wait for that to heal before I do any proper exploring

Oh no, that sounds painful. Yeah moving out of hostels is the best thing to do, feel much more settled. If you want to meet up that would be good, are you on Facebook?
