I'm planning to head out to Oz on the 1st of November and work my way up the east coast. My flights are on hold, I'm just too scared to book it at the moment! Flying by myself is a huge deal, but I'm probably just going to have to man up! haha.
It's reassuring to know that others are travelling alone. Would be great to get chatting to a few of you guys before everyone heads out.
Get in touch, or add me on facebook -
Hope to speak soon!
Where are you planning to fly to? I get out there 1st of December. Theres quite a few of us going at that time.
You doing a year on a WHV?
I'm flying into Sydney and arrive on the 2nd of November
Unfortunately, I'm not going out on a WHV as I've only got a month! My Work wouldn't give me sabbatical leave, so I haven't got much time out there. Probably not a lot of time to see the east coast but I'll do my best!
I fly home from Cairns on the 3rd of December so I'll miss all you guys planning to be on Bondi beach for christmas! (Totally Jealous btw)
It's sweet that pretty much everyone is doing the same thing! I'm probably gonna be booking everything in next week or so.
So I'll be in Sydney for early/mid November then heading up East Coast, got my brother out there and couple of friends so sure we could blag a couple nights on their sofa's haha
Keep me up with all your plans
I'm exactly the same as you and planning on going in November 2012 on my own. I was thinking of doing an OzIntro at the start but have absolutely no idea where to go from there ! I've been speaking to quite a few friends who have done it and said that its a great way to start as you meet loads of new people in similar situations.
I havent really thought it all through to be honest as i'm just concentrating on getting enough money together to actually get me there, but I think i will almost certainly be doing the east coast after I have a few days in sydney!
If your around the same time in Sydney it would be nice to at least half know someone there so I wasnt wandering the streets of Sydney like a lost puppy!
I literally cannot wait.....I just have to find a way to tell my work that i'm leaving!!
P.s I have absolutely no idea how to work this forum
Hahaha totally with you on the forum thing, i just keep quoting everything.. :/
Have you got your visa sorted yet? I just dont know how ill cope travelling alone for 24 hours, i get pretty bored of my own company pretty sharpish haha
If youve got facebook add me, be nice to keep in touch and maybe arrange a meet up when were there or something. Makes things a little less daunting!
Am travelling out mid october with my girlfriend - staying in sydney until mid-november before heading up the coast! would be great to get talking before we head out and we'll come find you when you arrive in november!!
give us a shout on here or facebook! (same for anyone reading this!)
Yeah absolutely!! I should be heading over mid November so would be great to meet up in Sydney! As I said in an earlier post i'm tryna get to grips with how to work this forum etc so will probably message you on FB if thats ok!

Are/have most people got return flights to Aus then gonna be changing the date later on or has anyone opted for a one way flight?
[ Edit: Edited on 22-May-2012, at 14:41 by daleverdi ]
One way flight first because Id love to be able to find work and stay out longer! It means i have more control over when I want to go, Id to have to leave in the middle of having fun!
