I am also looking at heading to Sydney solo, looking at early/mid September. Pretty sure I will be doing the 12month working visa, and looking at booking through Ultimate Oz. I am 27yo male from US. Also interested in travel mates since I will be solo, I have a great summer planned and can't wait to get down there. Cheers!

Hi Ash,
I'm also planning on travelling from Cairns to Melbourne on the Greyhound hop on & off,
and stopping off at Sydney through this.
When are you travelling?

hey sorry, havent been on in a while. last week at work.. whoo hoo. hey laura, im flying with cathay pacific from heathrow on the 17th and land in sydney on the 19th. would be amazing if u were on the same flight.

charlotte... great to hear that another person is going greyhound!! lol. well im landing in sydney so plan is to head from there to alice springs and then up to cairns. so maybe start the greyhound roughly round the end of sept, then have till just before xmas to make it to sydney. however i am tempted at the moment to visit fiji from brisbane along the way. not sure about finances yet though. what are your dates??

Hey guys! I'm a 19 year old male also traveling alone from Sydney to Cairns at some point in late September. I don't know the exact date yet because I'm still in the process of getting my passport renewed, but I'm guessing around the 25th or 26th (could be a few days earlier or a few days later) if anyone wants to meet!

After the Greyhound trip to Cairns, I'm planning to catch a flight to Adelaide to see my friend there, then make my way to Melbourne and slowly back to Sydney for a total period of about 2.5 months, but I'm making sure to try and keep my travel plans as flexible as possible. Part of the excitement is not knowing exactly what you're going to do or where you're going to go!

It's my first time traveling out of the States alone, and despite also being pretty terrified, I'm equally as excited. =P But having traveling partners, or at least knowing people that have already or are taking a similar route as you, is never a bad thing. My facebook is Taylor Braswell.
