We've created a group for backpackers on facebook: Australia Backpackers 2013 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Australianbackpackers2013/members/?order=default&query=Tom%20Finn)- theres lotsa people traveling alone and the group is helpful if you want any advice, to meet people or just support If you check out the Frequent topics of discussion there's a lot of information on Banks, insurance, Tax file number, jobs etc.
I'm heading to Melbourne on 27th December then onto Sydney for NYE, staying at Wake Up. Has anyone else booked to stay in that hostel over new years? I've heard it's a good one
After NYE I'm travelling up the east coast for a month on my own, is anyone planning on doing the same?
Pop me a message on Facebook as I'd love to meet some like-minded travellers! https://www.facebook.com/maisiej1
It seems that everyone will be taking the same journey as you, from what I've read on this site.
I'm doing exactly the same with 3 other guys and look to travel up the East Coast via campervan to try and save some cash and visit more places.
How much do you have planned?
Yeah I've spoken to quite a few people who're planning on doing the same route. Can't wait! A campervan that'll be brilliant!
Well I've booked my flights and insurance. And have booked 3 nights at WakeUp over NYE! Other than that not much. I'm looking to buy a greyhound bus pass for my travels up the east coast which I'll need to sort soon too. How much have you planned?
So are you doing the east coast in January too?
It should be good... Little cramped though as there will be 5 of us sharing it!!!!
Nice! How long are you going travelling for? Have you purchased a WHV as yet, or don’t you need one?
Well we have 2 nights in a hostel booked in Perth and then it's a case of trying to sort out a house/flat and a job and we will be living in Perth for around 4-6 weeks.
We will be hitting the east coast between the end of December / beginning of January, and then aim to go over to NZL for a month also.
so im travelling solo - arrive in Brisbane 30th September
No plans yet, other than to maybe head down to Byron and head up the east coast from there until i run out of money and need to get a job!
Would be good to meet some people to hang out with once there
Anyone happen to be doing malaysia or Thailand first - specifically full moon party on september 19th!?
