Alrite Jim, how's things mate!? I'm also heading over in September with my girlfriend and flying into Brisbane after spending 2 wks in Thailand. We'll be arriving on the 1st. I see your from Ireland, what part!? I'm from Belfast myself so not too far away. I really can't wait to get away from this weather, the summer has been non existant so far. Have you any plans as what your going to be doing when you get over i.e work, travel etc. I think we're going to travel down to Sydney within our first wk of arriving and start from there. Hopefully find some work to as I don't want our funds completely drying up. The plan from there is to just work and travel up the east coast to Cairns. Also contimplating spending Christmas and new years in Sydney. From what I've read it's the place to be around that time of the year if your a backpacker. Hope to hear from you soon. Rick.
