Hey, I'm planning on going Australia in May early June next year to work and travel for a year maybe even two depending how much I like it.

I'm traveling alone it's a little daunting but I'm hoping the excitement will take over.

I'm traveling from the UK if anyone has any advise/tips Id be grateful. Or even like to join me.

I plan I going other places after oz like Thailand, America and Europe hopefully many more besides. Xxxx

Hey there,

I'm also heading to Australia alone in May! I'm really excited but also a bit daunted about the whole thing! Where do you plan on going to?

Hi Danielle,

Yeah I also plan on visiting both cities for sure! Figured I'd start in Sydney though in the hope that I'd easily make friends in such a big city! There's also loads I want to do there which will keep me occupied for the first few weeks and hopefully I can find a job there too (fingers crossed). Planning to fly out on 5th May. What about you? I get so excited talking about it that I wish I could just go now!

hey both,
I'm heading out in September to Perth alone then hopefully travel around the rest of the country. Iv just booked my ticket and yeah it is very daunting, i'm so excited but nervous at the same time.

I'm going on a WHV and booking a hostel for week and taking it from there, possibly heading over to the east cost around December time.
thought i'd post this in case any of you decide to go a little later on in the year :)
exciting times.

Yep I booked my flight yesterday eek! Going to buy my visa this week too. Yeah I'm scared too but I guess everyone that's on their own is going to feel the same? It's nice being able to talk through your worries on here though without people saying 'oh don't be silly you'll be fine!' I'm 25 and from Reading in the UK. What about you?? J x
