I've two ideas in my head at the moment...

1) Start in Cairns get the regional work out of the way and travel south to be in Sydney for xmass/NYE

2) head straight to Sydney stay there till January and then head north and sort out the regional work along the way.

I dont have the flights booked yet (waiting to get paid) should be sorted by mid march depending on the price. Once there booked ill have a better idea but starting in Cairns is my preference.

Iwas looking at doing somrthing like the oz experience but from what iv heard you have just as craic (if not more) if you wing it yourself...

I like the sound of your first idea Andrew as it will be nice to get that done so you have the 2nd year option ready and can carry on your travels where you like after that.

I haven't given much thought to christmas/new year yet as it seems so far away but from what i've read on this site Sydney seems to be where a lot of people are heading for it.

I've been advised to use the greyhound although i did the kiwi experience a few years ago and loved it so i'm not to sure yet.

im headed out September. seems alot of us are in the same boat, travelling solo.

Sydney for NY sounds pretty amazing though.
