Hi Dave.
Where about in Oz are you flying to? I'll be arriving in Perth, WA on 26th June 2013 on a WHV. Looking to work first to save money then travel around a bit. You got any plans? or just going where the wind blows you.

Hi Dave, I'm heading out on the 1st arrive on the 2nd into Sydney staying for the first couple of weeks to see if i like the city to stay longer or move up the coast. i'm booked in at the YHA in the Rocks it looks the business i have to say. my plan is pretty similar to yours heading up the coast via Brisbane and Cairns let me know where you are staying and when you get in would be good go head out for some drinks and explore the city with someone else.

yeah heading over on a WHV. Have you got yourself a hostel booked for when you get in? I've not made any plans passed the first 11 days so will be a bit of a rush once i get there. I've heard mixed things about sydney from my friends who have been there so i wanted to get a feel of the city myself before i decide if i am going to stay there longer term or head up the coast.

Jord, this time of year most people will be heading up to Cairns as its still good weather and its right by the barrier reef. defo worth a visit from what i've been told.

Planning to do Fraser Island as well when over there if any of you are interested in that.

No ent got anywer to stay yet, if i dont find a place before i get there then ill prob have to spend few days in hostel before i find a house share. I got nothing planned apart from concentrating on working for at least 6 months :). then decide whether to start with the travelling up the coast or work for little longer somewhere.
