I'm starting my travels in Cairns in early January, so I'll probably make it down to Sydney in early February (but I guess that depends on how much I like Brisbane and the Gold Coast). Anyway, I'm 22 as well and it's comforting that they're other solo travellers in the same boat as me. It'd be nice if we crossed paths because I don't know anyone in Australia yet, and it's making me a bit nervous. Anyway, I'm down for anything - chilling on the beach, going out to the bars, sightseeing, keeping active, whatever. Send me a message if you feel inclined.

Also, where is everyone from? I'm Canadian, but I get the feeling this is a predominately British site.

Hey guys :)
Such a relief to know there are other people doing the same thing. I'm flying into Sydney alone in January, so even if you are coming in abit later keep in touch with me as I know nobody and would be nice to :)

I will also be travelling to Sydney mid February alone for a year! I'm 18 and hoping to meet a few people before leaving, a bit nervous going alone. Have no set plans other than traveling the east coast (maybe a little bit of partying:) haha)

Is anyone planning on staying in one place for a bit and renting a flat? or staying from hostel to hostel? Not really sure how the prices vary but i wouldnt mind renting a place with a few people to get a bit more privacy than staying in hostels for a whole year.
What are you thinking of doing?

Katelin :)

Hi guys!

Alex & Lovetotravel- Good to know you may be about in Sydney when I will be! I'll let you both know when I arrive and if you're around would be great to meet up. Feel free to message me your travel ideas :)

Katelin - Your plans sound similar to me. Going to start in Sydney, then make my way up the East Coast. After I've travelled I'm hoping to pick up work, so while I'm working would be looking at renting a flat somewhere, so definitely keep in touch :) Haven't really looked into places and prices to rent yet but hoping people out there will have some advice on the best places.

Hi everyone

Me and a mate, both 21 year olds are travelling out at the start of February.

Looking at going to Perth area first, is there much work? and is it easy to get?

We are from Essex so if you want to find out how to party properly we need to meet up and show you how! Ha.

Seriously though, what type and where is the best places to work?

Thanks, so buzzed for this year.

Can anyone who is travelling to Oz in early 2013 add me on FB:

Would like to chat about what everyone is doing and what the options are plus it takes too long on this site.

Inbox me though because i haven't told my work yet so wouldn't be great to write on my wall.

Hope to hear from some of you.

Hi Guys, I'm 23 year old female heading to Sydney on the 24th of February and will be travelling throughout the year, it'd be great to know a few of you and know of a great friendly hostel, Ill be heading over after travelling Asia for 2 months before hand! So if any of you are heading that way too it'd be great to have some companions, it's a great big world out there an I know I'm a little apprehensive abou being a lone female! Xx
