I know it's a little different for me (being a bloke), but I traveled Australia a few years ago on my own and had an awesome time.

The only piece of advice I'll give you you is to go with the flow and enjoy yourself. You'll make plenty of friends along the way.

i went to Oz on my own when i was 21... i had the best time ever and i am still in contact with some of the amazing people i met along the way..(that was 10 years ago now!) . Don't worry too much stay in the backpackers places in dorms and you will meet loads of people right away. Have fun
