Hi everyone my name is Donald im from Glasgow I will be heading to Melbourne on my working holiday visa on the 1st of april. I will be working in melbourne to save up some more money and then I am looking to explore more areas in Australia, although I have friends who have moved to frankston - Melbourne from Scotland I am travelling alone so i am interested in hearing from anyone heading out at the same time or that`s there already to give me a bit of advice on things to do and see in the area

Hi Donald,
Welcome to Travellerspoint!
Are you looking to move to Frankston as well or will you be staying closer to the city? My partner is from Edinburgh but we're close to the Melbourne CBD.
Let us know if you would like to catch up or something once you arrive.

Haha all my life :p. I'm from Melbourne but my partner was in the exact same situation as you a year ago. He loves it now, so maybe that helps with any worries ?
Frankston is a bit further from the city but there's nicer beaches that way and in Mornington. You'll have a great time.
