Hi there,

Im Ed, ive decided to pack up and do some traveling in Aus for the next year or so on a WHV.

Im from Sussex/Surrey area, anyone heading out from heathrow or landing in Sydney get in touch.
I plan to start in Sydney may be on an Oz Intro week (does anyone have experience of this??) then start my way up the East coast.
My plan is to be working whilst i travel, most likely picking fruit etc but i have no plans of where and when.

Im a very open minded person and love meeting new people so the more buddies the better!

if anyone has any advice or places of interest up the east coast and or Northern territory would be great as ive only ever been to WA.

Thanks and see you in Aus! :):):)


Ps feel free to FB me - Edward.Searl.3

Hi Ed

Im from Surrey and travelling to Sydney on 28th October from Heathrow, went to Oz in Feb for a month travelling the east coast and now going back on a WHV.

Have you booked your flight yet? Im planning on staying in Sydney until the New Year, cant miss the NYE parties! Then head up the East Coast.

Im getting slightly nervous now but very excited :-) Would be great to meet!

Hi Lauren,

I haven't booked my flight yet as i had a few starting options and just recently chose Sydney.

My plan is to book a flight for after 26th Oct due to work, who are you flying with?

I work in Leatherhead, where abouts in Surrey are you from?

the thought of Xmas on the beach has dulled any nerves i had, i cant wait to get out there! so was Feb your first trip out to Oz?

yeh we should definitely meet up

Im flying with Cathay Pacific was the cheapest i could get booked with STA.

Im from smallfield its right near Gatwick Airport so not too far from you.

Thats all im thinking about is christmas and NYE in Sydney! Yeah Feb was my first trip have wanted to go for ages but had never got round to it. Nearly stayed out there the first time but came back and got made redundant the month after, took that as i sign i shouldve stayed.

So what are your plans for work in Sydney? Im thinking of heading straight to Cairns after New year and getting on a farm. Amazing party atmosphere up there too i met some great people when i was there before and am still in contact with them now.

I have no idea how to find my facebook name like your but ill try and find you my names Lauren Martin :-)

Hi Everyone!

I am heading out to Sydney at the end of October. I can't believe it's around the corner! Anyway I went to Sydney in February and just spent a week! Needless to say, I cought the bug and needed to go back!

I have about the same plans as everyone else. I also have WHV but my plans are very fluid right now. I only have three months to travel around. Don't know how much work I will be doing.

I have some friends in sydney so that will be my "home base" but I want to travel as much as possible and most likely will be flying solo. There is so much to see and do. It has been difficult to define a travel plan.

aI would love to keep in touch and meet up!
