Hey i'm Liz, i'm a 19 year old female and live in the uk. I plan to go to Australia either in September or October 2006 and plan to get a working holiday visa for a year. I will be travelling alone and am a bit scared nothing is booked yet! would love some company of anyone who's planning the same. If you are interested leave a msg and we could chat. Males and females welcome.

Hi Liz, my names Alison im 24 and from Manchester. Im also thinking of travelling to oz next sept, started saving but not booked anything yet. What are you thinking of doing over there? I thought of living and working in Sydney for 6 months then travelling for the remaining 6 months, also fancy spending abit of time in New Zealand if i have enough money left. I dont know whether to go through the travel work company (they seem to be the cheapest and they organise everything for you) or just get a visa and do everything myself? It would be great to have someone to travel with if you wanted to do a similar thing. Hope to hear from you soon, take care!

I plan on starting in New Zealand in October of 2006 for a round the world trip and will probably get to Australia by mid September, let me know if you end up going. I will see you a message as well.

Hi don't worry about going by yourself its easy to do - I've been in Aus about a week and a half now (will be here for a year) and you meet so many people and its easy to do it all yourself. Let me know where your gonna be when you get out here and can poss meet up if not you'll meet loads of people in hostels don't worry :-)
