Hi there!

I am also looking at travelling solo around oz in my break from uni this summer! I am thinking Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and eventually Adelaide to visit some family. I have never done anything like this before but want to spend my 21st birthday and last summer holidays (before 4th year) somewhere fab!

Hey that sounds a little like what I'm panning when are you panning on heading out?

I haven't really decided, staying until at least the end of July. I'm not sure how long I can afford because I don't really have a clue where to start and how much money I'm going to need, ha! Your doing 8 weeks? x

Yeah I'm the same with money I was kinda planning on having a credit card saving as much as I can before I go then working the rest off if needs be when I'm back! Would be cool to meet up while were out there tho maybe travel around together? I'm pretty easy on where I go! X

That's a good idea! Yeah definitely, I'm the same, I don't really mind where I go I just want to see and do as much as I can while I'm there :) Feel free to add me on Facebook, I think the links on my profile (not really sure how to use this haha!) x

Hey!

Thinking of the same as you guys, hopefully sydney mid June then 2-3 months travelling around from there. Definitely want to do the goldcoast and cairns too! Be keen to find anyone thinking the same :)

Thinking of starting in Sydney with ozintro or ultimateoz, you guys thought about that?

Heyyy ailsa!
yeah i was kinda planning on doing sydney then driving along gold coast and staying there for a bit and then brisbane then up to cairns then back down I'm pretty easy tho tbh id like to spend a lot of my time in cairns cus its warmer there and heard good things haha!

im not doing any of those there so expensive but they look amazing if i had the money i would!

Hey Clare,
Definitely thinking along the same lines, hoped to spend more time up near cairns too for the heat. Also heard alot of good things :) seems cheaper than Brisbane/Sydney too!

Have you booked flights? How long are you there for? Hoping to book in the next week or so, thinking mid June till end of August-ish.

That's good, same kinda timing! Been told 2 months is a good amount of time to see the majority of the coast :)

Hoping to make some sort of plans with people in Sydney, would be good to meetup there! My fb is ailsa McDiarmid if you want to keep in touch. Nice to find someone else going for less than a year too, most folk seem to be going for a year to work!
