Hi everyone, just thought I'd introduce myself. My names Scott and I've just booked a flight to Sydney for the 7th October. I'm going alone and am a little bit nervous, so please get in touch if you experienced travellers have any tips for me! Also, if anyone else is heading out at a similar time it would be good to chat and maybe meet up before we go, because I think it would be nice to have some familiar faces to meet out there!
hi mate think alot of us r planning on sydnet for nye so may c u then. i land may3rd in perth
Ok bud, sound like fun! We should all get together and sort something out.
Im going around then aswell, travelling alone too so would be great to meet people beforehand!
Hi Lauren, yeah that would be good, I'm pretty nervous about not knowing anybody! Where abouts are you from? X
Yeah me too!
Although everyone I have spoken to has said that meeting people is very easy!

I have heard Aus is unbelievably expensive which is quite scary
I'm from the lake district, I'll give you an add Lauren! I hope it isn't as expensive as I've been told too! Haha x
Aus is meant to be expensive (£1.50 for 1 lime in some supermarkets!!)
The hourly rate is for work is good in Aus.. Around $17.50 per hour for a basic admin job...
Try and take as much English cash as you can out there and the exchange rate should help lots!
I go in October also and I'm starting in Singapore for a few weeks.
