Hi all!

21 y/o recent college graduate from the US looking to take a year off before law school. Nothing set in stone yet, but hoping to start in Melbourne/Sydney in January, then work my way all the way up to Cairns in about 5/6 weeks. First backpacking trip and would love some company or advice even!

Thanks and hopefully hear from you soon!

Hey Michelle! Nope, not positive yet. I'm looking into doing work for accommodation which is where you do 2-3 hours of work in a hostel and then get to stay there for free. I'm def interested in staying in hostels since I'm traveling alone and want to meet people.

What is the ultimate oz? and how long are you staying in Australia?
