Hey Guys!

Planning of heading solo to Australia in or around September this year on a 1 year working holiday visa. Wanting to travel up the east coast. Not sure on where to start yet though. Any suggestions would be great. Im also wanting to do my 3 months of regional work to gain my second year visa.

Anyone else any similar plans to mine?

Cheers :)

Starting in September, I'd recommend making a beeline for Cairns and heading down the coast instead (depending on your intended pace). Come December, it'll be the start of the wet season in the north (which lasts up to March), which you'd probably want to avoid.

If you love nature, also consider devoting some serious time to New Zealand, since you'll be in the region (or even better, follow up your Australian WHV with a New Zealand one).
