Quoting Olly7m

Hi all!

Just joined this forum, I am a 22 year old male from UK looking to the East Coast of Australia, some point later on this year or very early next year! I would be travelling solo (some mates wanted to the same as me but they've bailed on me but I still want to go)...

I was thinking of flying to Sydney and making my way up the coast, would be great to talk to people in a similar situation! I would love to do like Thailand/Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos for like a month or whatever before but don't fancy doing that bit solo!

Anyone else got a similar plan? Be great to hear from some of you guys!



Hey Olly :)
I arrive in Sydney the 18th January, I'm also going solo and hoping to meet people and travel up to the east coast.. Havn't got a plan set in stone yet. Just going to go with the flow :)
I want to travel Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam & Laos too. But not sure whether to do it after Australia or visit those places and then head back to Australia, or what.. But don't fancy doing it on my own :)

Heather :)

Hi Heather!

Seems people seem to do SE Asia first and then head out to Oz! No harm in doing it other way round though, I really want to do SE Asia though, just not keen on doing it alone haha!

Your flights all booked then? Be good to exchange plans!

Olly :)

Hi Sophie,

Yea im planning to go around the same time in January as you! have you booked any flights yet? i really want to start making some bookings soon n get a solid plan together.

Are you thinking about working at all while your out there? i was thinking of maybe doing a ski season in New Zealand if i want to stay a bit longer!

Its good to hear that there are so many people planning to be in Oz at the same time :)

Hey Guys, good to see so many other people going solo ! Im heading over in September (only a couple of weeks away!) For the first month i plan on staying with mates in Sydney and then in October looking to travel upwards and it would be cool to meet anyone with similar plans in or around the same time, will be working here and there along the way I guess but will cross that need when icome to it! .... oh, anyone else here travelling from IRL ??:)

Hey all, I'm Alyssia and another one from London/Essex borders (nice and close to Stanstead!). I'm a 24 year old graduate looking to land in Australia around the 8th of January 2014 but I haven't booked my flights yet (waiting for a nice one to go via hong kong because I love it there!). I've got a WHV for a year and want to travel around Cairns/Whitsunday, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane before heading out to New Zealand and Vanuatu. If I have any money left I'd love to do East Asia too. Pretty terrified of heading off on my own so if anyone fancies a travel partner I'm totally down! I'm thinking of flying into Sydney as a base, but I'm not sure if it's more logical to just fly to Cairns and work my way down the east coast?

^ Im landing in Cairns at the end of September and will make my way down the coast, it makes sense imo, if you can travel any sooner give me a shout as I also need a travel buddy!
