Hi everyone,

I'm going to Australia in January 2014 and want to travel around for a while. Don't have any plans written in stone, but was thinking of starting in Sydney and working my way up the east coast. Haven't ordered anything yet so my dates are flexible.

Anyone else going around that time who's interested in a similar trip?

Me :)

I fly next week for Xmas in Perth then on to Sydney for NYE. I also have nothing set in stone other than my flights :)

Roughly plan to get the festive season out of the way and hit the road.
Have you booked a flight yet?

Hi :)

Got my visa approved, but haven't booked the flight yet. It's my first time travelling this far alone, so have to admit I'm getting a bit nervous... But going to book within the week hopefully! :D
Looking to fly out between 3-10 January.

I'm planning on doing the east coast for about a month too. Got a couple of things I'd like to do, but don't really want to have anything specific planned before I'm there :)

Would be great with some company for some/all of the trip, so if anyone is interested in meeting up let me know :)

Hey, I have been travelling since March but mainly India and SE Asia. Been in Sydney since September working but want to travel the Coast in January too.

How are you thinking of travelling up the coast? By bus? or renting a car or something?

I think a car or van would be great but depends on numbers or it will be hop on/off bus pass I guess. What were you thinking?

Was thinking along the same lines. Car/van would be great with enough people.
Ordered my flight today, and arriving in Melbourne at the 2nd of January :)
