I don't have any concrete plans yet just it will be September, I don't really know where to start on the whole planning. I am also really nervous to be going alone! But I never want to think what if, you know?! Have you booked your flights, got your visa through yet etc? X

Yeaa booking flights Wednesday so it the last nerves of it becoming completely final ahhh. You booked anything yet? Or sorted visa?

Eeek exciting! No not yet, I'm just building up the courage, I'll do it in the next couple of weeks. How long did your visa application take to come back?

Hi there! I'm also planning on going to Australia around the same time. Was going to be going with a friend but they appear to have bailed so looks like i will be I my own! Have no idea wether to go for a year of a few months but I suppose I would meet more people the longer I'm there and if I'm working!

Whereabouts in Australia are you thinking of going? I plan to try and get some temp work while I'm there like bar jobs admin stuff, and then if I like it maybe do some seasonal work to qualify for a 2nd year visa, by the sounds of these boards there is going to be a lot of people who are going solo, so I think we will all be fine, Haha

Yea well I haven't thought to much yet, was originally not going to plan too much and then just decide when I'm out, but want to travel all over really before I get work out there. Guessing that staying in some of the hostels to start will also be a good way to meet people. Think the most daunting thing will be the flight and arriving out there until I get all sorted!

I agree I reckon its the first bit that scares me the most. I'm hoping after a few nights I will be fine and loving life. Just hope it won't take too long to get a job plan to start with bar work in Cairns then literally just go from there.
