Hi maisie,

My plans are similar. I fly into sydney late November but will head to Melbourne before coming back to Sydney for 20th Dec (have a hostel booked until 3rd jan) then il travel to cairns on oz experience stopping at where you have mentioned on the way. I have to be in cairns for 1st Feb to fly to Singapore so around 4 weeks on the coast. Let me know if you think we may cross paths.

Hi James

Which hostel are you in for NYE? I still haven't booked one and I am starting to freak out a little because there is nowhere left!

Hi Dean,

I'll be visiting places like Brisbane and Cairns too, plus other places along the way like Surfers Paradise and the Whitsunday Islands, etc. I'm also leaving Sydney on 2nd Jan to head up the coast :)

You planning on getting a Greyhound bus pass too or hiring a car while you're out there?

So exciting! x

Hey Maisie,

Oh cool! Roudtrip!!! :P I was thinking about car relocation sites, becuase it would be awesome to see what I can and just enjoy it all in your own time. However, if the bus works out to be easier and cheaper (seeing how money goes) option, I might just have to go about it that way. Although I am trying my best to avoid buses lol!

Look after yourself

Hi Guys I'm from the UK and I'm going to be in Australia on my own for about 3 months from the 29th November 2013. I'll be staying in Sydney and hopefully working for that time. Then I'll be going to Cairns to see the barrier reef etc when I have the funds! But overall my priority is finding a job when I get there - I haven't planned much visiting up the East coast just yet but I'd really like to do it!

Late March I'll be flying to Auckland. But anyways I'd really like to meet some like-minded travelers when in Australia to hang out, especially during Christmas and new year :)

Just a thought, but seeing as they're few of us in the same mind set here, why don't we look to set up a facebook group involing people who are staying in Sydney over the Xmas New Year period? Then people could post what plans of action they looking at taking afterwards? There's probably groups already existing but just a thought nonetheless.....

Hi Maisie,

You seem to have the same plan as me! I will be in Sydney for New Years then hopping on the Oz Experience for the East Coast - so would be great to meet up with somebody doing the same sort of thing!

I think a facebook group is a great idea!! I am also going to be in Sydney from around the 20th of December and after new years I will probably stay to earn some money before making my way up to the Barrier Reef.

I will also be doing the STA starter pack in Melbourne mid October if anyone else is around.
