Hi everyone, Im eighteen currently working in the sporting industry been working for to long now so decided to get away for a bit, i travel to Melbourne around the 20th to the 23rd of November (need to check dates) hoping to work my way up the east coast for the three months - doing it alone (been told will meet lots of people out there..?!)

Going to be there for Christmas and New Year which will be mad especially compared to the weather we have in that season in the UK!

But i fly out of Caines in mid Feb!

Just wondering where to visit, if anyone else is around that time, etc.

I'm assuming you mean CAIRNS. In mid Feb it will be the wet season upthere. Very humid ,very wet and even the odd cyclone.

Where you aware of this??

Just thought I'd give you a bit of advance warning

Hi Phil,

You will have an amazing time! You could spend a little bit more time in Melbourne, spend NYE in Sydney (Because the fireworks and atmosphere is pretty good).

Wherever you plan to spend NYE, you should probably book it sooner rather then later because it gets very very busy that time of year!!

so NYE in Sydney sounds good!! :)
Didn't know about Cairnes having such a bad weather season in Feb could always just not visit there til closer to the date i leave i spose ?
Its booked so cant really change it, thanks for both your replies.

Hi Phil,

I know this is a very late post from when you made this thread but what new to these forums and only just found it!

But what your doing is near enough EXACTLY the same as what im planning todo.

I'm leaving London on the 30th of Nov and flying to Melbourne - Then travelling by bus/foot whatever to Sydney for X-mas/NY's. Then this is where my plans differ to yours, im flying from Sydney upto Cairns on the 2nd of Jan then travelling down the east coast back to Sydney (due to the rainey season). All of this should take me 3 months then im finishing up in Thailand for 1 month.

If you fancy hooking up at any point mate let me know, im 21 male and also travelling alone so we could hook up for a beer or something at NY's.

Hope you enjoy your trip if we dont cross paths, im sure you will.

Take care,
