Hi there, I am also heading to aus In January by myself. What is your plan? I am going to purchase the greyhound bus ticket Sydney to Cairins. Although Im unsure whether there will be many alone travellers on this.

Hey guys,

I leave Sydney on 2nd Jan and am heading up the East Coast on the greyhound bus.

Would be cool to chat to some like minded people, so feel free to add me on Facebook, the links on my profile and its easier to talk on there

Mollie :)

I know it seems like a lot to organise, it's really not as bad as it seems though I promise! If you need any help with the planning, feel free to ask. I've already sorted most of my planning so hopefully I'm in a good position to help :)

Hey dan, I have a quick question if I may?

With regards to travel once you're there, have you already booked your Greyhound tickets? Is it cheaper to book in advance? Also have you done anything yet with regards to bank account/sim cards etc?

Thanks in advance! Royce

Hey Royce

I haven't booked any Greyhound tickets as I'm not sure how long I'm going to be in Sydney for, I was planning on keeping my options open, to be honest plans can change so fast I don't want to commit to leaving on a certain date. I'd imagine it's cheaper to book in advance, but I don't know for sure. As for setting up a bank account, I'm gonna do that in Australia as I'm pretty sure you need a fixed address (Australian) to open an account and the hostel I'm staying in has sim cards you can buy.
