Hi guys

I am planning on heading to Australia in March\April to work and travel for a year. Not sure where I should start! Shouold I fly to Melbourne and head up the east coast, or start at Cairns and head down the east coast?

Any other tips, lile where to visit on the way would be great :-)

Hi Paul,

I arrive in Sydney on the 7th April 2011. Alot of people travel up the east coast. As April is coming into Austraila's winter i've heard starting in Cairs then moving down the east coast is best, but not sure how much difference it would make. I think their winter is June - Aug.
My plan is to go to Sydney, if i get a job there i'll stay for a bit, if not i'll move u the east coast :)
