Im 23 looking to go travelling end of may beginning of June. I'm going to go to Sydney first and toying with the idea of starting with oz intro. They seem to set you up with more or less everything you need to get started and help you find jobs for the year, so I didn't really think you could go wrong. Then after that I was just going to see who I met then start travelling round for a month or so maybe go up east coast weather depending either that or chaseing the sun whilst its winter. Then head back towards Sydney for November to try and find some work and get set up for Christmas and New Years. So just wondering if anyone's about at the same time going on there own around the same time if fancy meeting whilst out there.

Hi Louis,

I literally just only joined on this site to find out about other people travelling to OZ next year and looking for travelling companions. Im looking at heading in June, but to Melbourne first. Although I'm looking to stay for the year hopefully and travel and work my way about. I'll be doing this on my own as well so if we're in the same area at the same time be good to meet up sure. Beats the loneliness haha!

All the best,

Hi everyone

Thanks for the replies.

Carl- yeah would defiantly be up for meeting up at some point. The Facebook groups really good thanks just haven't had a chance to post yet. Hopefully will in the next few days.

Dean- that sounds good mate. Where you planning on going after Melbourne do fancy doing the east coast?

Kay- when you planning on doing the ozintro? Obviously I want to do east coast but because its winter out there in June I'm going to have a look at where the weathers best at this time of the year and maybe try and head up that way first. Have you got many plans yet?

Also have a look at Carl's Facebook group it is really good to get a feel for things.

Hi everyone.

I was planning to hit Oz this year but due to funds I am now among to 2013 also. I had been planning going with a few friends and already have a mate there who has been raving about how good it is for the last year. However shit happens and now I'm going myself, and my mate who's there will probably be back around June, although he will be ale to give me some pointers, I, like yous, will be on my own.
I had planned on going over around march, and starting in sydney or melbourne and working round the coast, so let me know what yous are all doing.

One more thing, I look at OZintro and got all the packs, but when I spoke to my mate who's there just now he told me not to bother. He said jobs are easy to come by and if you start off in hostels(or uses sites like this I suppose) you easily meet like minded people.

Any advice?
