Hi Kiara,

Ok I'll check it up :-) mine's not set in stone either.

Well I need to apply for my work visa and work wise I'm not entirely sure yet on when to start looking or where to look.
All I've looked up is Cronulla YHA as it seems suited to my needs.
I'm happy to be anywhere in Oz so long as I'm near a surf beach, hot weather and a relaxed atmosphere.

Hey everyone :)

I'm planning on travelling solo to australia in November but now possibly considering changing to end of September as really looking forward to it especially after reading about everyone else's plans! Going to check out flight prices tomoz then will get my visa sorted before i book my flight.

Am pretty nervous but guess that's the norm..was planning on going to Perth first then moving on from there but not sure how long is the norm to stay in each place? Also, most people tend to be travelling the east coast rather than the west.. is there any reason for this?? Really need some help not sure what I'm doing lol.

Any advice peeps?

Hi everyone!

im planning on going to OZ early Dec :) so thankful i came across this site, very excited but nervous about going on my own. Glad to know there are people in the same boat. Planning on being on Oz for about a year, then going to New Zealand and N.America. Planning on working in OZ too.

Would be great sharing plans/ideas. Think ill be in sydney for Xmas & NY :) has everyone already got their hostels booked? worried im leaving it a bit late?

Hey Michelle!

I'm currently applying to the University of Queensland. I'm hoping to start my first Semester next Jan/Feb, and the University advise students to arrive at least 3 weeks before the Semester commences!
I'm planning on going November/December, and I'd love a travel buddy. Who knows, someone may be in the same position as me?
I'll be flying from London Heathrow - Singapore - Brisbane. :)

Hey guys,

Heading out mid October, one way, for as long as possible!
Staying in Sydney for a few weeks before moving up the coast. Going to be somewhere between Brisbane/Cairns mid Nov & at magnetic island for the full moon party Nov 30th (tickle your fancy?!). Brisbane for xmas and then back down for New Year around Sydney Harbour!

Would be amazing to get chatting with some of you beforehand, please feel free to send me a message!

Hey, Im Stacey, Im 22 and looking to travel Australia for around 3 months. The hottest months are Nov-Feb so Im looking to fly out in December 2012. Ive also been looking at 'UltimateOz' and 'OzIntro' tour packages to start my journey - it looks amazing, it covers so many sites and looks great fun and also a chance to meet other people travelling at the same time too! Is anyone looking for a travel buddy to Oz for around this time? :)

Hello! I haven’t contributed to this thread in a while, sorry about that! As it stands, I’m still booked to go in October, getting very excited! Flying into Melbourne for a month, then onto Sydney for Christmas & NY period. Not sure on the amount I’ll have in total but I have friends who have done this and gone with USD 750.00 and is still there after 3 years – sounds good to me!

Anyway, if anyone wants to arrange a meet up overseas – or just converse on our trips – feel free to message/add me on FB (hope it works!) https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=582242679

My name is Catriona - I’m 22, easy going female – coming from London area. :-). Look forward to hearing from you. X
