Hi all

I'll be travelling to Australia alone on a working holiday visa, arriving in Sydney on the 29th November 2013.

Just wondering if there's anyone else out there in my position really? Would be good to know people before I get out there etc.

Hey Nat

I'm doing pretty much the same as you, except I'm flying to Sydney at the start of January, rather than November. What are your plans?

Hey, I'm heading to Sydney with a friend we arrive on 25th September we are booked into a hostel for 2weeks then plan to find a job and house share until after Xmas & new year. After that we plan to travel up the Gold Coast maybe trying to get some seasonal work along the way to get the 3 months built up to hopefully have a 2nd year visa granted.

What are your plans when you arrive?

You're not on your own, don't be worrying there! There are plenty of us lone travellers out here. I'll be Syndey the 22nd December until after New Year so if would like to keep in touch and could meet up for a drink when the time comes, that being if you're staying in Sydney that long. Sure let me know (and that goes for anyone else on this).

All the best

Dean :)

I'm the friend that Danni_107 is travelling with. If you want to meet up once you've landed, feel free to message one of us. I'm sure we'd be up for a drink, coffee or chilling on a beach.

My traveling plans for Sydney are not fully settled and it will take some time to finalize the dates for the holiday tour since i have to take leaves from office administration but would love to spend new years time in Australia. Will keep you all updated.

Hey Nat

I'm also going alone on a WHV and will arrive in Sydney on 17th November!

What are your plans when you arrive? I'm going to stay in Sydney til after New Year (accommodation to be booked... can't find anywhere!) and then travelling the East Coast before hopefully settling in Melbourne.

Hi Everyone

Sorry I haven't replied earlier. I was going to Sydney for 2-3 months but will most probably stay just until early January and then move on to Melbourne, hopefully driving myself there. After that, who knows but I'd like to see the rest of Oz - Gold Coast, Perth etc.

It would be great to meet up with you once I'm out there; how we do that on here I'm not sure seeing as we can't exchange personal info?
