Agreed!.. You should look at spending NYE in Sydney, heard its fantastic!!
I'm looking at booking through STA, seems the best company out there!
When you say everything booked for £880 what does that include, just flights?!
We are in the process of booking it, just waiting on 1 friend to get his money and act together!... I'm sure STA offer a campervan hiring service?!/.. But yeah seems a great way to get around Aus!
I've heard the same about NYE in Sydney!
Yep, £880 for the flights. Bare in mind I have 4 flights in that price, so I think it's a good price really. Other companies like Trail Finders couldn't come close to matching it. If you know you're going straight to Oz you may be better booking yourself directly with the airline and then sorting a cheap flight to NZ once you're there.
They do offer it yeah, but it'll work out much more expensive than hiring or buying (and selling) your own once you get there. All of your mates each chip in etc. I'm just guessing here, I've not properly looked into yet myself. But everybody seems to say that there are always plenty of cars/vans that people going home want to sell on.
Note for everyone wanting to spend NYE in Sydney: Accommodation for that tends to be booked solid as early as May for the good places. By August, only crappy or really expensive places are left.
Hi, I'm going out alone on the 1st of October, I'm excited but nervous too! I'm not planning too much, because I just want to see where it takes me. My names Scott and I'm from the UK (Cumbria.) Feel free to get in touch if any of you want to meet up or anything.
Hey! My name is Alexandra and I am 25 from Canada, heading out to Australia for the first time at the end of September. Seems like a lot of us are planning on going around that time. It'd be sweet to get a group together!
My name is laura, I'm from Wales in UK. Planning on going to Cairns September. Working my down the east coast then heading for Sydney Xmas time. It's so exciting
Hi all Im Kellie!
So just told work im leaving at the end of the school year and looking to book my tickets this week....nervous but very excited! Im looking to leave anytime in October and head to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Bali and be in Australia just after New year then on to Fuji and New Zealand if anyone else has a similar travel route?! x
hello everyone! my name is jess and im leaving UK in june july and going to spend some time in africa first then off to australia in september!
Laura, are you going by yourself?
Im hoping to start in Cairns too and am also wanting to be in Sydney over christmas!
And hello Kellie! After australia im hoping to go to Fuji and New Zealand too! How long are you staying in Oz for?
sounds like everybody is doing something pretty similar timewise! My Oz flight from Singapore is on 16th October at the moment but can always change it if I want more/less time going around Asia.
Not sure which way to head once I arrive, but like most, thinking about heading to Sydney for the New Year too. Looking to head out to NZ/Fiji/Hawaii and USA my working holiday visa expires too; not sure whether to do 1 or 2 years yet, so will just see how I feel once I get there.
feel free to drop me a message on here, or add me on Facebook (link in profile). Hope to chat to some of you soon!
