After working for 2 months in Brisbane I am finally ready to start the proper travelling - with of course the possibility of finding some farm work along the way.

I am wondering if anyone is travellling to Cairns from April 2012 onwards, this is when i plan to fly up there and hope to meet someone that wants a travel buddy. Ideally buy a campervan and do the coast that way for the true experience or i am planning on buying the bus pass from cairns to melbourne then from melbourne (hopefully by then find someone to do campervan thing down there) and travel the great ocean road and back to melbourne. My plan after that is to fly to Sydney in time for xmas and NY (just managed to get booked!)

So if anyone is loooking for travel buddy would be great to hear from you. Am travelling alone I am 21 female, outgoing.

We are in Cairns right now so will not be there when you arrive, but our tip is to stay in the hostel Tropic Days. It is lovely, easy to meet people and to book tours, hire vans/ cars etc. it is one of the best places we have stayed.
