Not going but wish I could....

If you end up going on your own relax loads of people do and if you are staying in hostels you will hook with people all over the place.

Hi all, i would say its better to go on your own, no one to plan around, and as ive heard there are lots of people in the hostels to talk to. I will be in Australia in October :)

Hardly anyone knows yet, im going to spring it on my boss 4 wks before i go.

Ive had it with the British weather!!!
