Hi

Am going to be traveling Australia alone from October, I've been thinking about starting in Cairns. Is this a good starting point or has anyone got any other suggestions.

Any help much appreciated

Thanks
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Im the same planning to head over the end of October.

Had my visa granted last night so no turning back now, cant wait to get out.

You planning on travelling the East coast mate?

I was thinking of heading to Perth first, Ive heard it the best place to find farming/ fruit picking jobs to try and extend my visa for a second year.

Then after hopefully getting it extended looking to head over to the East coast.

Have you got anything booked?

Stu.

Hi no havent booked nothing yet, was thinking about traveling abit first and then look for some farm work. Nothings set in stone though, want to be in sydney for new year but other than that just going to take it as it comes

Im the same mate, nothing really planned. Just going to take it as it comes.

Dont really see the point in planning a trip, it will probably change when I do get over there.

Sydney for New Year would be class, there seems to be alot of people thinking the same. I want to try get there but if it doesnt happen then im not fussed, ill be happy just to be in Oz.

I know, you'll meet people and plans will change. Just dont know were to start, I've got a friend who lives by melbourne so dont know whether to start there.

Decisions decisions.

Were you from mate?

Im the same I know a couple people over there just now but I dont want to go all the way to Oz to travel with people I already know.

Ill go see them dont get me wrong but would want to meet new people and do my own things.

I can see where your coming from though getting a bit help to settle somewhere.

From Edinburgh mate, what about yourself?
