Hi Everyone

I am planning on heading to perth first/second week in feb as I am currently in adelaide at the moment. Heading on my own as the ones I went traveling with want to settle in adelaide. It would be great to meet up with other people who are planning on traveling to perth.

Hi guys,

I'm already in Perth, arrived on the 26th Jan. Have seen a few sights but would love to have some company as starting to get a bit daunting when your on your own. Currently staying with an older couple in Duncraig, so need a younger crowd, haha!
If anyone wants to meet up just let me know......or if anyone needs to know anything I can try and help you out with some stuff :)

Cheers

Gemma :)

Hi gem. I arrived in perth today, staying in Perth YHA but everyone seems to keep themselves to themselves or are foreign. I think most people over here are more long term workers rather than travellers. Would appreciate somebody showing me around a bit as I don't have a clue, I tried to go to the beach earlier but almost got lost lol. Are you anywhere near YHA? It's on Wellington street & that's all I know lol.

Hey DenKav, I am arriving in about a week. How have you found it so far?

Any luck in finding a job?

I'm really excited about getting over there!

Hiya richelliot. Perth is beautiful but I'm not in the best hostel for meeting other English backpackers really so I've just been sightseeing on my own today. I haven't looked for any work yet to be honest but apparently it's pretty easy if you actually look for it. Do you know where you are staying yet?

Hi guys.....

Denkav - yeah I know where you are, could arrange to meet up and try and show you around a bit if you like......there's only so much you can keep going to see on your own, been there done that, lol Sorry to hear about the hostel :( I've been thinking about booking into one for a while to see if I meet anyone in the same boat, but for what they are, what they cost and some of the reviews I've read of most I think if I go anywhere it'd be a house share!

Rich_1_2_3 - I probably won't still be here in may, I'm thinking about travelling over to the east coast in the next month. But if I am I'll let you know.

If you wanna add me on Facebook just search me :Gemma Perry
