I'm 27 and hoping to go travelling to Oz for 2 months in Jan 2013!

I've been to the east coast twice with family but didn't do the whole backpacking thing which im hoping to do this time. Hoping to go to the Perth area and travel around there.

Does anyone know of any good places to visit/see/stay around that area? Hoping to meet people out there as I don't want to be on my own for 2 months, any suggestion on how to go about this? I've seen a few group website but they seem for younger people.

If anyone is planning to go there around then please contact me or if anyone has any advice or suggestion to help me plan it would be very helpful!

hi michelle,
I'm actually looking to go to the west coast as ive been to the east coast twice. I know what you mean about the doing it alone ive never done anything like this before, but from what ive read and been told as long as you go to hostels etc then you meet lots of new people as there is many people in the same situation! hope you enjoy if my plans do change and i decide to do the east coast ill msg you! good luck xx

Hi! Im an 18 year old girl, and am going to be in Sydney in January until i'm not sure when. Haven't really got a clue where to start really, other than a week booked in a hostel on arrival :) Anyone in the same boat?
Looking for people to meet.. either out there or before!

Hey everyone!

I'm taking the plunge and going alone around Feb/March time! Looking to have a few contacts before I go out there too. I have not set plans as yet so I'm literally going with the flow. Think I might start with OzIntro in Sydney or something just so my first week is planned with people in the same boat as me! What are everyone else's plans?

Feel free to add me on facebook (Abi Plester) if you want to talk travels :)
