Hey guys
I’m a 31 year old female who’s planning to travel around Australia for at least a year starting from sept2018 I’m traveling alone as most my friends are married and have children.
Where’s I still feel there is a lot out there for me still to see. I have been granted my working traveling visa ??????Was look for some advice of where’s best to go, I will fly into Brisbane and then visit my dad near Byron bay. Then from there I have no plan. Where to start, where to go, where to end up. Would be nice to find a travel buddy. Or Evan find people in Australia who I can travel with.
Any help would be muchly appriciated

Since you are starting in September I would suggest start with exploring any Northern part of the country you want to see. Since you will be in Byron Bay maybe start with Queensland and Northern New South Wales. You generally want to avoid Queensland in the summer. Summer is the best season for Tasmania which is a gorgeous place to visit. Spring in Southern Western Australia you can see the bloom of the wildflowers. Spring and Autumn is a great time to visit the rest of New South Wales, Victoria and coastal South Australia. The weather is usually much milder and more comfortable at this time. The Northern Territory, North part of Western Australia and inland South Australia I think is best in winter. It isn't so hot in the day and you don't have to worry about flooding, though outback Australia gets freezing at night in winter.

You might also want to consider joining the New Year celebrations in Sydney. It is a pretty big event though if you want a view of the fireworks you will have to book early.

Hope this gives you a starting point to planning your trip

If you are seeking companions perhaps try this group:


It is 2017 so perhaps a new group needs to be started but I am sure some will cross into 2018.
