I land in Cairns at the end of September, What are your plans?

I land on October 16th and basically have no plans whatsoever... Just thought that going with the flow would be the best thing to do.. However I have 9 weeks to get to Melbourne..and yourself?

Im booked into a Hostel for the 1st week, I plan on buying a campervan and heading down the coast and to be in Sydney for NYE, then make my way to Ayers rock, Darwin then to Perth

Hi both

I'm travelling alone to Sydney in November! How much we're your flights? How come you didn't want a WHV?

Hi Beth
My flights were about £840 but that includes Melbourne to Auckland in December..
I basically have work lined up in New Zealand so just fancied a break from work for a while to be honest :)
What are your plans when you arrive?

Hi Rich

That's really good! I paif 960 for Heathrow - Hong Kong - Sydney on a group flight with Bunac! Yeah, you can't make too many plans I don't think because you never know what's around the corner! I'm from the Isle of Man :)

Hi chippyzak

That sounds amazing, what work is in NZ for you? I hopefully want to do a few sights and touristy bits for a month and then settle and find a job, hopefully in Melbourne but will just see what catches my eye! When do you fly?
