Hi guys!!!

I'm Marc and I'm hoping to go traveling around Oz too (up the East coast) and looking at flying out Feb/March time. Also thinking about hitting New Zealand as well depending on how funds are once I've seen/done everything I want to see in Oz! I'll be traveling alone too so would be good to talk to others and get to know some people in the same boat! Anyone wants to get in touch just message me and I'll give you my facebook and we'll chat on there!

Hi everyone,

I'm planning hitting Oz around mar/April. I already have a visa but need to get to Australia by June or I can't go.:(
I had originally planned going To Melbourne as I was going with friends, but now considering starting in Sydney as I have a mate there who can point me in the right direction, but he's been there for over a year so he's already did his travelling.
I'm planning to get a job when I'm over there, had originally looked seeing if I could save enough to avoid working, but my mate spend £4k in just over a month, although he was going out a lot I'd imagine I'll probably be the same so work seems essential, although apparently its easy enough to find work.

I'm 24 but I still find the thought of travelling solo a little daunting , it'd good to compare travel notes and find out what everyone is doing.

A know 4k is a bit mental. I thought that £4k would last me a few months before I'd need to get a job, but my mate says there quite a few price activities that are a must, learn to surf at surfers paradise, diving and bunging. I recon that if u missed that out you could make it last a bit longer, but obviously if your going all they way to Australia you'll probably do some addition activities... And from what a hear nights out can be a little steep at times...

Yeh you wouldn't want to travel all that way and not do some/most of the activities so I can imagine how it would get expensive pretty quickly. 4k in over a month is pretty mental though haha! Yeh I reckon nights out would get expensive especially in the major cities but I suppose that's just the same in every city really!
