I am also planning on being in oz around February time and will be travelling on my own, not going to lie slightly scarred lol, is anyone planning on going anywhere before hand like Thailand? Or is everyone just going straight to oz?
I have been looking at sta travel round the world flights but don't really know what the best thing to do is?
I havent got any plans of such to do Thailand first as im a little scared to do that on my own! But if i was to meet people, i'd so be up for doing somewhere like that either before or after OZ!
Yeah, I'm the same. I'm not sure whether to just book a multi stop flight with someone like 'sky scanner' or book with STA. It might be worth to book an appointment with an STA travel agency and see what they can offer. I think thats what im going to do!
Im still so nervous about going, but it will be a trip of a lifetime :D
I am landing in Sydney on the 16th of Feb and I am planning to go up the East coast! I am going out with BUNAC who are very similar to STA.
If anybody needs any help or wants to get in touch let me know! love talking to new travellers
Sorry to jump in on your conversation but I am also travelling alone & would love to meet up with people in the same boat when I arrive.
I'm due to land in Sydney on 29th January after 5 nights in Hong Kong - I'm flying from Heathrow on the 22nd Jan.
I was originally looking at Oz Intro but came across Ultimate Oz - its very similar but cheaper and it looks like a fun way to meet people in the first week. Have a look here.. http://www.ultimateoz.com/en-us/arrivalpacks/sydneypackage.aspx
Think I'm going to travel up the East Coast first. I want to do some surfing at Byron Bay & Surfers Paradise. Airlie beach, Frazer Island, Magnetic Island, Whitsundays & Cairns are all places I plan to visit in the first month or two - if any of you would be up for travelling with me that would be great - accommodation for one is so much more expensive!
I was also considering the East Coast trip on the ultimateoz website - it works out at around £60 a day for 28 days and includes travel, accommodation and trips...
I have a friend in Adeleide who I want to visit and know a girl in Perth as well. Other than that I haven't really got a plan.
I've got a WHV and plan to stay for at least a year and might try and get the 2nd year visa if I like it.
heyy .. i would love to chat to people and find twitter or facebook alot easier so if anyone would like to chat my name is sam widdowson or skwidd2 on twitter.
i am goin end of jan /start of feb so anyone who is going around then xx
Hey, my facebook is Charley Payne and my twitter is charleypaayne if you want to chat anymore!
it's so nice to talk to like minded people haha xx
I'm planning on getting to Sydney about the 25th Jan. Will probably stay with family for the first week then get a hostel. Would be great to talk to other people going alone!
