Hello All-

I'm venturing to Sydney on October 5th and will be staying for a year! Right now my plans are flexible. Depending on finding a job, I plan on living/working in Sydney until at least February. I would like to be in Sydney for Christmas and New Years, and then travel around Oz, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, Fiji, you name it. I would love to meet other travelers with similar plans. I'm very open minded, easy going, and always up for an adventure. Right now I'm signed up to get started with Ultimate Oz for 10 days. Is any one else doing the same program or have any advice on living in Sydney for up to 6 months?

Hi Katie. I'm flying into Sydney on October 1st with similar plans to you. I want to stay in Sydney until the new year and work whilst there. Apparently it's easy to find work in bars and restaurants. Then planning on travelling up the coast to Cairns over a few months, preferably in a campervan, dependant on cost and people to do it with. I'm going alone so staying flexible and happy to hear plans and ideas on where to go. Hopefully I'll still have some money left when my visa runs out so I can travel Asia

Hey Elliot! That would be awesome to get a campervan, especially if there are more people that would like to do the same. I would most definitely be interested in that. Have you priced that out yet? I'm also traveling alone and flexible with plans. I really need to start planning some things out, I can't believe we only have about 3 months left!:) I also want to travel to Asia if I have enough money to travel after Oz and looking into volunteer work as well, but haven't found a good program yet. Maybe we can compare ideas and meet up? Are you also doing Ultimate Oz? Seems like great way to meet other solo travelers.

To be honest I haven't planned much in detail because I'm going alone and want to be open to options. I'm definitely staying in Sydney until the new year so will plan the rest when I'm there, dependant on who I meet. Like I said my dates are flexible. Yeh a campervan would be amazing but it depends if there's the people to do it with, otherwise the oz experience bus is an option. I'm not doing the intro, I'm hoping to meet a few fun sounding people on here and we're bound to make loads of friends out there. I can't wait, 3 months will fly by. Asia is dirt cheap so you dont need loads to travel there. Do you have Facebook and we can talk on there
