Hey there

I fly into Sydney on Fri 14th Dec and from 16th Dec im heading up the east coast to Fraser Island, Whitsundays and Cairns up until Christmas Even. Then flying back to Sydney to meet friends for Christmas/New Year.

If there are any likeminded people doing the same during this time then give me a shout.

Not planned too much from New Years but head back to London 9th Jan!

Hey Jackie

I'm doing similar to you but kind of the other way round. Gonna fly into Melbourne on the 8 th then get an internal flight up to Cairns and travelling down the East Coast ending up in Sydney for Xmas and new year. Going for 4 weeks too so a lot to fit in, in little time ha

Are you flying from cairns to Sydney ??

Hey Izaac

I never even thought of doing it the other way round lol!

Yeah, my best friend is in Sydney so seeing her for a day or so and then getting my internal flight to Hervey Bay, heading up the east coast until I get to Cairns. Then my friend is lying up too and were going to the Barrier Reef, flying back to Sydney on Chrismas Eve.

You're right, such a lot to fit in during 4 weeks what with Christmas and New Year! This will be the first time ive been on a plane alone, let alone travelled so the nerves are starting to set in!!

haha to be fair i probably wouldnt have unless i'd taken advice from friends who have done the same..

We'll probably meet somewhere around the middle haha!! - Surfers Paradise

Yeah im getting nervous too.. but im just hoping everythign will be alright on the night... Or if worst comes to worst just drink and enjoy my own company

You should come to Bondi on Christmas day - supposed to be good fun and quite a few guys on here meeting up on the beach for drinks

Yeah, I have a vague itinerary of what I want to do and when but decided to just go with the flow for once in life!!

Cool, well i'll be with my friend in Manly on Christmas Day and sure she's mentioned Bondi! There are loads of emails flying around about NYE too which should be amazing!

Im on FB if you want to get in touch - Jackie Tomlins
