alexelizabeth has indicated that this thread is about Sydney

hey all,

am looking to go travelling by myself to australia late next year ( due to saving up funds) (sept/oct time), would love to go sooner but would rather have sufficient funds, is anyone else looking to travel by themselves here or have done before? im early twenties and will probably stay in hostels,

was planning on doing two weeks in sydney, a week gold coast? and a week in carins seeing the great barrier reef...

whats the best things to do in these places, being a bit vague i know, any good experiences people have had doing things here?

also would like to get chatting to people that have been before or are looking to go around the same sort of time! hoping to make new friends on the adventure :)

am going more for the exploring side of things not for the getting drunk/party scene side

any hints / tips or general advice / or even just to travel chat about aus would be cool.... thanks

If you want to stay in Sydney than I think Sydney Opera House is the most beautiful place. I had visited Sydney in last summer vacation with my family and had great experience.

Sydney is a beautiful city and has a lot to see and offer. Obviously the the opera house is a must, but I would also take a zip line tour. I did the one time I have been there and it was amazing.

When you planning on going? I'm going to be in oz feb to march 2013. Am staying in peth for ten days where I have use of my cousins car- then flying to cairns and making my own way to Sydney ( have about 5 weeks). I'm also not into going out drinking- would rather spend money on exploring and seeing things.
I'm into nature so barrier reef snorkelling, maybe diving is a must! Also want to sail whitsundays, Fraser island , cape tribulation Rainforest.

Yes going alone too-am bit nervous bout it! How much you planning on spending. I've saved up £5000 to last me the four months- am hoping that's going to be enough. I'm going to take credit cards etc just in case too! :)

Looking to go Ozz at some point next year.
Got a few places to crash, working family farm north of Brisbane and have family in adalaide! I realise they at opposite sides of a vast country but that's the fun of it right?
Would love to travel up easy coast by any means necessary.
I've saved about the same amount of money as you.
My plans are a bit vague at moment but hoping to find someone to finish them off!
