Hey Andrew

That was my thinking behind flying into Melbourne as its cheaper than Sydney, spend a few months there and make my way to Sydney for Xmas and new year. I'm going sept 22nd...well I arrive sept 22nd I fly 20th. I haven't booked accommodation yet as I'm not 100% on which one would be best for the first few nights. X

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to set up a group on facebook as it might be easier to communicate as you can respond to individual posts?

I am planning on going Oz in Mid Nov time and I am going alone which is scary but exciting. I have tried looking on facebook to see if there any existing groups but the most of them are foreign.

I am hoping to find some people heading out around a similar time to me so we can meet up.

Hey Guys,

Is there anyone of you guys that are flying out in June? Im heading straight for Melbs, going alone.....seemed a lot less daunting when I booked my visa last year.

Does anyone have any work or places to stay sorted yet? A hostel is fine for the first couple of weeks but I am looking for something a little more permanent.
