Im heading to Melbourne in September and was wondering if there is anyone traveling there around the same time? Was thinking of getting together a little group for people travelling alone to make the experience a little less daunting for the first week or so? Maybe look at hostels etc?

Message me if your interested :-) x

I was planning on going to oz in sept but my friend has just pulled out :( have visa sorted but no flights booked yet as I'm freaking out about going alone. I'm from Belfast, Ireland. Would you recommend me still going alone? R u going alone? Was planning on going to Brisbane but I'm open to any suggestion? Have u ur flights booked?

Hi Nicola :-)

I have my flights booked to arrive in melbourne september 22nd. I am going alone so yes iw ould recommend it. Everyoen i have spoken to has said going alone is the best way to do it as you will meet so many people who want to share the journey with you. Going to friends / Partners can sometimes not work out great but in other situations be the best thing for certian people so i guess its all personal preference.

Are you on facebook?

Hi I am also looking to travel solo in September and am looking for a travel buddy, no set plans yet so I am open to suggestions, I would really love to be in Sydney for New Year's Eve though! I would love some company as it s really daunting doing that first step alone! :)
