Hi everyone! I'm flying from California and arriving in Sydney November 15th. I'm also going alone so would love to meet up with some of you for Christmas and NYE!! I think I'm doing ultimateOZ the first week and hopefully find a place to settle in Sydney for a few months and travel the coast at some point.

Hi Olive, I'll be arriving in Sydney at the end of November and planning on staying a few months then doing some travelling, so similar plans to you! As Lydia says above we've started a facebook chat so feel free to add me or her :) Looks like there should be a few of us for Christmas and NYE!!

hey, i arrive to sydney on the 22nd november and i do the ultimate oz on the 23rd of november. We are looking at staying near sydney for December hiring out places(maybe a week in each place) which makes it cheaper with more people such as maybe Wollongong or near Newcastle , we are also hiring out somewhere on bondi beach for 7 nights between a few of us for new year.
After this in January we plan to hire a couple of places again near sydney then look to travel the coast in a a camper.
This seems a little like your plans :)

Hi Kim18,

I've just been reading a similar thread :-) It might be worth checking it out as we've been talking about where best to go too:

Are you a beach lover at all? I can't recommend the beaches highly enough - Byron Bay, Hervey Bay and Airlie beach, etc.

Oooh, I wish I'd been there for NYE. The fireworks display at Syndey Harbour is supposed to be amazing. 2015/16 will also probably be good -

Don't worry about going on your own. You'll have an amazing time and you're bound to meet some cool people along the way!

Hope that helps.

Hello guys! I've just signed up for this forum as I'm travelling for the very first time alone in January 2016... i start my travels in Bali with STA travels and then I will be going on to Australia to do the East coast. I am doing a tour there with STA again and then doing the east coast on my own afterwards. I'm staying in Australia for about 6 months + and would look to meet others in the same boat as me.. If anyone has any tips on doing the East Coast solo or anything I would appreciate it. I will finish my tour end of January so this is when I will begin my own adventures!
