Hey - a bit late to the post, but ive only just come across this site!!

Have you booked anything since this was posted?
I'm travelling to oz in June 2015 as a solo traveller! Im arriving in perth on 11th june, then flying to melbourne on the 21st to start working my way up the east coast.
Ive never travelled on my own before, however i feel like australia has been calling my name - so after much debating, i just decided to forget my usual day job & go for it - i have nothing to lose!!
Ive booked the oz experience hop on hop off tour through STA travel, so my transport is covered & i have a few trips included like whitsunday island, barrier reef & byron bay surfing lessons... but other than that im completely open minded as to where ill stay & what else ill do!
Im only going on a travelling visa, however i think i have now managed to save enough to keep me going for the three months & im returning to the uk on the 22nd august. I know youre doing a working holiday, but it would be great to have a travel buddy in the same position!

If its easier to talk via fb message, feel free to add me -

Hannah :)

Hi Jay!

Have you booked anything up? I am leaving on 18th June to Sydney, spending a week or so there with a friend before she comes home and then no plans as of yet. We may go up to Cairns but that might be a bit expensive to go up and come back down in a week.

Hannah are you going to Sydney? The hop on hop off tour sounds good.

So exciting, would love to meet someone else when I get there in the same position, getting nervous now!

Speak soon!

Hey Cat & Hannah

In answer to your questions I still haven't booked anything up yet. I am well on track to be leaving around the time you guys are.

My thoughts are buying a truck or waggon when I get there and travel as I please, stopping off in different places along the way for work as needed. Im waiting on a decision with a mate if he will come along as well if not then I will be going alone. Either way I will be in the hope as yourselves in meeting like minded travellers. At the minute im still open to all suggestions as I don't have anything set in stone.
