Hi everyone

Im Lorna from Wigan Lancashire and Im 23. I am looking to travel to Australia at the end of October beginning of November. As I am travelling alone I wanted to know if anyone else will be going at the same time?

I have been looking at that Ozintro thing which I think will be good, as I can meet new people who will hopefully want to tag along with me or Ill just tag along haha

I was hoping to be in Sydnet for Christmas and New Year for the fireworks and stuff and then onto the Gold Coast

If anyone is interested or have any advice, please get in contact

Hope to hear from you all soon :)

Hi Lorna,
I'm planning on going to Oz around the end of September I'm flying out with my friend and her boyfriend spending a few weeks in sydney then they are going off due to his work commitments. I'd love to stay out there and travel around...but bit nervous about doing it alone so would like to tag along with someone. The ozintro thing sounds good.
I'm 24 from bristol.

I don't really have any plans at the moment - maybe do a few tours through oz adventures. The only plans I have is to spend around 3 weeks in sydney when i first arrive in Sep/Oct time.

What are your plans?

Hi keely

I havent booked my flights yet, but we'll be in Sydney roughly the same time. Where are you planning to go after you have been to Sydney?

If you fancy meeting up when I get over there we can do and travel together? Have you looked at that ozintro thing? It looks really good, I was thinking of doing it to meet new people and they can show you round places which will be good, least we'd know where some things haha

Hey Lorna,

I don't really have any plans after Sydney tbh - just to travel around and see as much as possible. I've applied for the OZintro brochure to have a look at. The other site which seems to have great tours on is OZ adventures they range from a week - to a month and include travel. Have you looked at that?

I haven't booked flights either yet - maybe we could arrange similar dates so we can meet up and travel together.

What are your plans... after sydney?
Keely :-)

Hiya Keely

Yeah I've requested the brochure as well because it does look interesting. I haven't been on that other website but ill have a look in a second.

Yeah ill defo do that if you want, think I was only going to go at the end of oct beginning of nov so I can save a bit more money, but I'm sure we can sort something out :-)

Erm I'm not quite sure, I'm up for doing anything! I would like to go to the Gold Coast though so as long as I go there I'm not bothered haha. I'm like you I just want see as much as I can

How long was you thinking of going for and what type of visa you got?

Hi Everyone

My names Charlotte, I'm 26 and from Harlow. I have been searching online to find some people to go travelling with. To be honest, I dont have a plan as such, but I do know that I want to leave early November to go to Sydney. All my mates are either coupled up or in a job they actually like lol. It would be good to talk you all and see what your doing and hopefully we could meet and go together. Im proper excited, but so nervous at the same. I have to do it now before I get too old haha!

That's when I am thinking og flighing as well. Yeah sure we could meet up and travel together, the more the merrier.

I'm so excited as well, I can't wait and nervous at the same time! But I'm sure we'll all be fine :-)

What sort of things do you want to do?
