I'm 18. I have booked my flights now and I am due in Melbourne on December 10th! I am going on my own, therefore I am a little nervous, which is strange for me. I was just wondering if anyone would be in Melbourne at this time, I am keen on travelling or watching the Cricket and Tennis that is on offer! Would be great to speak to some people about this..

Got tickets? Lots of other people will be watching them too. Melbourne is easy to walk around and if you fancy something different, just a short hop to Tasmania.

Probably a dumb question but you do have a visa?

Nah not booked the tickets just yet! They are easy to get a hold of though, want to see what plans are for travelling etc. Ahh ok then, might research into that!
Yeah I do have a visa, thanks for the help

It's normal to be nervous. I guess the best I can say is that you're bound to find lots of people to hang out with once you get here. A lot of people in hostels will be in the same boat looking for friends to hang out with. Waiting with tickets to events probably isn't a bad idea since you might want to do that together with someone you meet when you're here.

If you want to say hello to someone in Melbourne, feel free to drop in at the Travellerspoint office and say hi ;)
