Hey! Im Jen and 23 from Scotland! Travelling alone too...I'm travelling out to oz in October...flying to Sydney...not got any plans set in stones yet and looking for advice on where to start/finish and where is the best place to get bar job(Sydney or Brisbane or along the coast)??? Is it better to travel Sydney up to cairns or cairns to Sydney??? I haven't travelled alone before so don't know where to start planning ?x
Generally both directions are equally fine, but when you're arriving in October, I'd start in Cairns and go down, cause the north has a wet season running from December through March, and this way you'd at least have a couple of weeks to enjoy the north before humidity starts being really bad. Alternatively, assuming you'll be there for a year, you could also start doing the south (Sydney to Adelaide via Melbourne and Tasmania), and then come March hop back to Sydney to slowly start working your way up.
Hey I'm flying on 5th September to Sidney
Hi, i'm Lizzie, 22. Also travelling alone, not got anything booked yet but hoping to start my travels mid September. Thinking of travelling to Sydney first, anyone know much about going through STA travel packages? Had a look but some seem quite pricey. Anyone just organizing it themselves and hoping for the best? x
Hi I'm Ellie, I'm 19 I'm flying out to Sydney on the 19th of September on my own, would be cool to know some people going at the same time! X
