Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Looking for an Irish Travel Buddy for Australia

Hey! I'm Matthew, 25 from Wicklow, Ireland. I'm wanting to head over to Australia either in November, December or January to search for work. But I don't want to go on my own. I'm looking for someone to go over with and to share the experience with. I've got my 1 year Working Holiday Visa and I'm ready to book flights.
I would like to start out in Sydney and take it from there but I'm open to other suggestions. I also want to do the 3 months fruit picking in order to get the 2nd year Working Holiday Visa.
If anyone from Ireland is in a similar situation to me or has similar plans and is thinking of heading over around these times, please get in touch. Send me a Private Message or post on here. Cheers! :)

Hey Matt!

Im Michelle, 20 and from Ireland!
I'm landing in Melbourne on the 2nd of January with the intension of travelling the east coast for a month.
However, to be honest I'd love to go for a year! Just can't seem to find the courage to do that on my own!
So no set plans yet just open to everything and anything :)

Look forward to hearing from you :)

I'm Jonny, 26, also from Ireland and I am currrenly on the train to the airport destined for Australia (Brisbane).

While I'm not 100% sure what my plans are yet, I do know that I'm going to be in Sydney for the two weeks over Christmas and New Year. I'll also be traveling along the east coast - heading north to Cairns and then working my way south.
