Hi All,

Me and 4 friends are in the process of arranging 6 month’s worth of travelling around Aus and NZL from October 2013. I would be interested to see who is due to be out there when we are.

We are also open to welcoming any lonely travellers into our group as I know it can be daunting going on your own!

Please share any ideas and tips to think about before going and whilst out there!

Please don't be shy and say hi! :)

Same with me!.. And there is more to plan than expected!!

To be honest I have been looking at starting in Melbourne, seems a nice place to start! We are looking at internal flights as we have friends over in Perth which is the opposite side!

Have you made any plans to cover NZL?

Where about's are you from Karen?

I'm from Dublin how about u? Yeah we want to travel around australlia too the internal flights seem to be cheap enough which is good, now where just workin out wether it's cheaper to rent or stay in a hostel, but maybe a hostel is better to stay in too meet other people there, were goin to travel to dubai and straight to Melbourne, nervous and excited at the same time :/

I'm from the UK (Leeds)

I've had a look and internal flights are around £100 which is really good, STA Travel have some really good flight deals on at the moment, if you don't already know!

We are looking at taking a different approach and looking into renting a campervan for 3/4 months of the 6.. Seems a good idea to explore and be able to go where ever we want!.. We just need to add the costs up to see if its effective or not!

We are the same to be honest! Excited about the opportunity. Whilst nervous about the problems that may come with it!!

Do you have Facebook Karen??

That sounds good :) well we went into usit it's a visa place over here and we were asking about accommodation but they advised us to go straight to a hostel when we arrive there... Sounds like what everyone does but freaks me out a bit having nothin organised only a flight :/ yeah it's /Karen.power.79 that's me username
