hey! im going travelling in OZ late this year or early 2009 for a year (or untill my money runs out really!!). im goin on my own and have been looking at different companies to travel and fly with but didnt know if it would b easier and cheaper just to get a flight into sydney? when you want to move on to another place do you just turn up and find a hostel or book it before? everyone says how easy it is meet people out there but do you tend to meet them and then go seperate ways alot? theres so many questions lol! is anyone else going around the same time or got any answers for me?? thanks, kealey x

Oz Experience is a good company to use in Oz, they have a web site with all the routes and a guide on costs.

As to a good starting point I did the trip myself 18 months ago and stayed at Base in Sydney. Its very clean, good location and a nice starting point for your trip. You can view the hostel on the web too I think.

Hope this helps.

hi, i travelled on my own to Oz a few years ago. You will meet so many people over there, some you will just hang out with until you move on, some you will decide you're both doing the same thing and end up travelling together (be it for a couple of days or a couple of months). You can book hostels before if you so wish, but normally I just turned up and booked when I got there. Most hostels have a van/mini bus that picks up from bus/trains. Hope this helps

You're not the only ones... I'm gonna be in Oz for ~6 months on my own from around November 09. I can't wait! :)
