Hi Everyone...
I have just discovered this site, I should be working but I'm having a quite day :-) ...

I'm a 47 yr old woman and planning to go to Australia in April this year.
I have done the usual holiday packages to lots of different locations but never been to Oz and never travelled alone before.
I intend to fly to Melbourne and do a Big Lap, taking in Alice Springs and Uluru on my way.
I don't have a timescale in mind.
I want to have a completely different experience. My intention is to get out of my comfort zone and get a whole new perspective on life. I have no ties in England though I will miss my friends very much.

I am hoping some of you may have handy hints and tips for me. Especially as I am a woman on her own.

I look forward to hearing from you

Hey Janet,

Welcome to Travellerspoint! Australia's great in April, with lovely autumn (fall) colours. Temperature wise, it's excellent because you still get sunny days but they're not quite as hot as the days we're getting at the moment.

Be sure to check out the Melbourne travel guide and some of the other Australia ones. A few of us who work for TP live here in Melbourne, so it's all written from first-hand experience!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy TP and find whatever info you need!

Hi Janet and welcome to TP.

Your trip to Australia sounds great - I'm sure you will love it.

Hope to see you around.

Bex :)
