I am a 24 years old and from west London.

I am planning to go to Australia for a year from mid December after travelling Asia and I have only started organising the trip so as yet have no immediate plans. I am travelling on to Australia on my own so it is pretty daunting!!! Would be great to know there is someone to meet out there. Possibly starting in Sydney and going on from there.

If anyone fancies travelling with me or has any advice that would be great.

Would love to hear from anyone who is thinking of doing the same thing.

Hi Peeps.

I am travelling in Australia for about 6 months up to a year, as I got one year working visa. Arrive in Sydney on the 3 Dec. Staying with friends for a month and meeting a very cool girl from Norway to start travelling up the east coast (Explore The Great Barrier Reef) around 3 Jan. We are looking for another 2 easy going backpackers to explore the east coast with. We are travelling on budgete and might work along the way as well, as fruit picking is in season.

My Email is: -snip, use message center-

If anyone is interested drop me a line and we arrange to meet in Sydney for a drink or two :) and see how it goes.


[ Edit: sorry, no emails please. ]

Hi Emma

I too am travelling alone, starting in bangkok on 1st dec until 20th then heading to sydney..from there, who knows!!

Am hooking up with someone in bangkok though so may have some company (which would be nice) as this is a v daunting experience as i'm sure you'll agree...

Can't really give any advice as I am in your situation so lets keep intouch if you like and hook up in syndey.

hey everyone,
i will be arriving in sydney on the 1st of december. i'm travelling alone so looking for travelling buddies to hang out with whilst in sydney and to travel around with. This will be my first time to oz and although i have a few friends out there, scattered around the place, in melbourne, sydney and perth (my sis is also out there with her fella) i really wanna do this on my own and make a go of it.
if anyone wants to meet up, get in contact and we will see what we can sort out!!!

Time is flying, the more people talk about Xmas the more excited I get about the fact that I will be somewhere hot for December. I try not to think about the travelling alone thing too much but it will be worth. There will be lots of us in Sydney at the same time and should definetly arrange a meet.

hiya everyone,
i agree with happycat, i think its fairly reasonable to be feeling a bit aprehensive and a little nervous about travelling alone but sure there will be loads of us there so there's bound to be at least one person you'll get on with. I reckon we should set about arranging a date and time to meet up. I'm gonna check in my travellers guidebook and find out the best place for a bevvie and a boogie and get back to u all, let us know of any dates you all prefer and we can set about organising it. that will give us all something to look forward too, and the more the merrier i say!
