Hi All,

Hope it is not to late and thought I would say hello.

I am in the process of selling my house and taking a career break from work (Police) and going travelling, it is something I have always wanted to do.

I am hoping to be in Australia at the end of October. I've just turned 30 so i have to go right now otherwise any later and they won't let me in!

I'm kind of scared doing this on my own but I am putting it to the back of my mind! Wanting to do Sydney first and then leave after the new Year - mainly because I really fancy doing the Bondi Beach Xmas party and the Sydney NYE celebrations.

Hi Guys

I'm Emma, I'm 23 years old and from Chester.

I'm flying out to sydney mid oct, planning on spending a couple of nights there before flying up to cairns and then spending a couple of months travelling down the east coast, hitting sydney again in time for xmas and NYE. After that I'm hopefully going to try and get some work anywhere.

The only thing that I'm going to book is my flight up to cairns and my hostel for 2 weeks over xmas and new year in sydney as I know they're filling up fast already. The rest of the time I'm just going to go with the flow. I think it's best not to go with a set plan and just see what happens!

I was in sydney last month just for a week and I had such an amazing time it's made me so excited to get back there for a year!

Would be nice to hear from anyone with a similar plan. :)

Am flying to Adelaide 2 Oct and then making my way up on a hop on hop of oz experience to Cairns apart from that havent really got any plans just going to go with the flow but sounds like at some point we will be at the same places. Am travelling on my own and getting well excited now i have travelled NewZealand on my own and was well scared then and it really is nothing to worry about.

Hope to hear from ya am 28
