So my travelling partner has had to back out of our plans and I'm still planning on going ahead and escaping the UK. Wondering if anyone is interested in/looking for a travel buddy. Planning on flying out around the end of September 2013. Wanna see the sights and experience Australia, but also want to work for a bit.

So, im Haylee. A 21 year old female from manchester with a sense of humour. Up for a laugh and love a good pint. I'm sure Australia is full of amazing & interesting people, but it would be nice to know a few before I head out. :) get in touch, I don't bite.

Hi. Not decided for sure yet but thinking about starting at Perth then heading towards the east coast and working my way up. What about you?

Yeah am starting in Perth too as my family are there.. So can save money for a bit but after that def wanna go off and do my own thing.. Don't really have a plan from there though as of yet! Have you booked your flight yet? Am struggling to find the best deals and don't want to end up spending loads more on a flight than I need to :s

Hey girls,

I'll also be heading to Australia in Oct/November to work and travel after a trip around south east Asia. Do you plan to do Asia first or straight off to AUS?

I'm looking for flights around the 20th September. Prices Flying from Manchester are about £600. Think they're less if you stop At more airports. That's cool that you have family over there, where you thinking of headed from Perth?

Hi everyone.

My travel buddy also dropped out so going at it alone now.

I was thinking about strating in Cairns and working my way down the east coast and eventually across to Perth but still unsure where best to start.

Haylee i assume thats a one way flight and £600 sounds like a fairly good price. Do you know if there's a set amount of funds you need to show if you fly one way to prove you can get home?

hey paul. yeah, thats a one way ticket. i think you have to have proof of funds for your flight home but not sure how much. ive found the cheapest tickets are flying to Perth.

you still plannin on going solo??
