Hi All I have a year working/travel visa 23 and first time traveller to Aus so am very nervous. I am arriving in Sydney late September and I'm looking to head up the East coast to see Brisbane, Gold coast, Great Barrier Reef and Cairnes and then head back to sydney for Crimbo/new year! anyone else have similar plans?

[quote=McGillagan]hey everyone, sorry been a bit busy today. But I was thinking who ever is leaving in November maybe we should pick a date and aim for that. We can maybe book the same ozintro package and then at least we can all be together. Whats everyone feeling? I dont mind. I live right by Gatwick/Heathrow so i probs be leaving from there. But if thats difficult for everyone else we can always go to a different airport? Or even if we dont fly together we will all arrive the to the same hostel.

Ryan, We should all hopefully be experts by then lol so you can come meet us and will help u. or at least have some people you know when you get there.

Hey Kat, was you thinking the end of Oct? Maybe we can all plan out date togther. Im so bloody excited it a joke. but i feel so much better being able to talk to you lot about it.

Hope everyones alright. Im off for a few beers now, get me in the mood hahaha, but if anyone wants to add me on fb, charlotte mcgill, i have a blue shirt on and my mate has ginormo sunglasses in ahahaha. speak soon x[/quote

Hi Charlotte I'm 23 and I have a working/holiday visa I am leaving in November and land in Sydney it would be really good to meet up on the ozintro what date so you land in November to book accom? -snip- v.excited but so daunting so keen on booking the ozintro week

[ Edit: Sorry, no personal details please. ]

Im 22 from Bournemouth and looking into going to OZ at the end of this year but more likely to be early next year as Im just graduating and want to do something. I am thinking of working out there for a while to put extra time on my visa. have you started looking at hostels and things yet??

Hello Lorna,
This is my first comment, im a bit of a newbie! Im Danny 20M and im from Leigh, which is not too far from you. I plan on going to Wollongong stopping with realitives around septemberish for a month just to get comfortable as i will be travelling on my own. Then i plan on going to sydney around December time, the fireworks you mention sound great at Christmas. How much do you plan on taking? The Gold Coast would be something I would really want to do!!
