I'm going to be traveling to Brisbane late 2013 just for 2 weeks just to get a taste of traveling, if it goes well i'll go back the following year maybe for a while longer.
I know its a long way away but I was just wondering what kind of things I need to be thinking about? I know that I need to arrange flights in advance because you can get them cheaper that way, and its obviously a good idea to look for accommodation. I'm not going to be staying in a hotel, just going to backpack around for 2 weeks and have a little explore of Brisbane, Fraser island, gold coast and things around that area.
If there's anyone else that is doing something similar let me know, I'd love to have some company throughout the whole experience!
