My girlfriend and I are headed out to Melbourne from Canada on July 31st, 2017, landing on August 2nd. Now, she's a little nervous because this will be her first time flying and shes pretty much running across the globe with me. She's also a little bit nervous about the whole backpacking thing seeing as is obviously something shes never done before. I just want to know if there are any people out there (Solo or not) who will be either there or arriving around the same time we will. Perhaps we could meet up, create great friendships, have great times and amazing travels! We're very easy going people who just like to have a good time.

Let us know!

Kevin & Christina.

We will be in Cairns and tropical Qld from August onwards - probably for about 4 weeks. We won't be backpacking as such though and we have kids lol. Probably not what you're looking for :)

I just Googled 'join backpackers' and there's lots of options. MeetUp seems the most reliable.

Kevin and Christina,

I am from Canada too! Hoping to do the same thing as you guys, but I'm alone. I'm from Ontario, flying out of Toronto to Sydney. Likely the beginning of August. it would be so cool to meet up with some fellow Canadians over there!

Should be a great trip. Try flying out to Melbourne instead of Sydney so we can start from there. There are a few other people who will most likely like to join us. It could be really awesome!
Do you plan on doing Farm/Construction work for a 2nd year visa?

I do! I haven't decided where I plan on doing it yet though. Do you plan on doing it?
