When I started this post, I didn't expect to get this many responses and really thought that I was the only one who's travelling on my own lol but now I'm so glad to see everyone is in the same situation :) I'm flying from heathrow too on 1st of march and I booked with STA Travel they were really helpful so I definitely recommend using them :)

Hi John, Kate, Lucy and Alsif,
Great to hear that you can travel from Glasgow. I'm from Ireland too John, Co. Tipperary. Might get to see Glasgow for one last time before I leave, perhaps another Celtic game. I expect to be in Sydney around early to mid Feb. Add me on facebook people, what a great idea Alsif :) Will defo get to meet some of ye in person. All the best.

I'm also going! Not until December 2013 though as i'm finishing my first year of teaching to build up some money. So glad to see i'm not the only person doing this, and worrying about meeting people etc! I'm sure there will be so many people in the same boat that everybody will be friendly!

Found this forum a bit late as I am travelling to Sydney on 8th January. I will spend most of my time there whilst I'm in Australia as I have relatives there. I plan to go to Melbourne, Ayers Rock and Brisbane also. I'm in Oz from January to beginning of April so if people are there the same time, message me as it'd be nice to meet new people :)

I am not travelling until beginning of June but thought I would get started with the planning/meeting others early because I have spoken to others who have said they found it really useful.

I too haven't planned much yet and don't really intend to do that much before I get there other than get myself informed. As far as I know it's relatively easy to find a job quick if you're not too fussy but gonna be nervous for the first few days certainly because I will be anxious to get settled!

So will be handy to get to know some people before I join you down under!

Hi everyone,

This is so good to see other people in the same position, I am seriously scared of going on my own!!

I am a girl 24 from London. I am not planning to work just want to travel as I only have 6 months off from work.

Is anyone just planning on just travelling from Sydney? I want to leave late Feb from London.

I then want to go to New Zealand also
