I am 21 and from cheshire(england) i am travelling to austalia in march 2013 starting in sydney and hopeing to travel up the east cost and work as i travel.
I am travelling alone so would be nice to hear from anyone else who is travelling around the same time as it is very scary travelling to a new county on your own.
hello, just stumbled across this website to find out some info on forums etc to find out what jobs, places to see and do etc. me and a friend hope to go late this year, im also from cheshire and going with a friend seems scary enough but im sure you'll be fine. ive been to australia for 3 weeks before with a friend to see his family and the people are very friendly there. Having gone before has made me want to see the rest of the country!
Are you going out there to travel and work or just for a holiday what part of cheshire are you from.
I hope to go out there and travel, ive wanted to go for years but never had the guts to go on my own so well done for doing that!
I want to go for as long as possible this time, at least 6 months to a year depending on how much money i have. i hope to save a lot but want to spend as little as possible but that is probably impossible!!
where do you plan on going in Aus?
im planning on starting in sydney and working there for a while then travelling up the east coast stopping at melbourne cairns canberra etc.
Well thats the plan at the moment no doubt it will most probably change by the time i get there.
haha yeah i can imagine plans rarely get stuck to, most likely due to no money or a job saving good money. How long do you plan on going for?
i am getting the 1 year working holiday visa would like to stay out there for 6 months to a year were abouts are you from i am from chester.
Hello! I am 23 and I am travelling to Oz on my own too. I arrive in Melbourne at the end of Feb and have 6 weeks to travel up the east coast (i'm not working) hoping to arrive in Sydney the first week of March.
I know a lot of people that have gone on their own and only had a few nights accommodation booked and met people once they were there. I'm a bit anxious about not booking much until i am there but think it would be best to be flexible!
Don't worry you will meet loads of like-minded people, the east coast is built around us travellers
