This is quite possibly the maddest thing I've ever done but you're only here once!! I'm heading solo to Sydney from London on the 9th February, will be working my way up the East coast to cairns, down to Melbourne, then back to Sydney. I'll be in Australia for 3 months in total before heading over to New Zealand, Fiji and then South East Asia.

I'm really excited about exploring new places and meeting new people to share this amazing experience with. Anyone in a similar boat and want to meet up? Or any tips would be greatly welcomed!

I'm easy going, and good fun (so I'm told!), if you're the same, it would be great to hear from you!

Hi Alex

I am in exactly the same situation as you decided I needed to finally pluck up the courage and book my trip. I am 24 from hertfordshire, I have just qualified as a nurse. I am leaving to go to oz on the 25th of feb. I am doing asia before i get to oz, which is a shame we could of met up in thailand. I am so nervous about going on my own but everyone keeps telling me i will meet people so fingers crossed lol. What have you got planned when you get to oz?

Hiya Beci

Good to hear from you! You're from herts? I'm from Hertford originally but live near kings cross now!

How long are you travelling for? What's your plan for when you get to oz? I'm heading there on the 9th and got 2 months to make my way up to cairns!

I too am nervous! I have no idea what to expect! Are you working at all?

Hey, I'm from Herts too...I have a similar plan, i'm heading to Sydney beginning of Feb. 12 months, hopefully working and travelling. I cant wait but also a little nervous. Are you looking into the ozintro/ultimateoz 1 week intro tours or sorting out everything yourselves...I cant decide.

We're going to NSW for a family visit in December and it's going to be my first time. Not my family but my significant other's. I'm looking forward to visit awesome places and check out what the lifestyle there look like.

Hello -I plan to arrive in Sydney during the last 2 weeks of February 2014 and stay for 1 week, then fly to Brisbane and do the Oz Experience 'Beaut' hop on/hop off trip making my way up to Cairns over a couple of weeks and finish in Cairns for a couple of weeks. I turn 30 whilst I'm out there so would like to organise a sky dive on my birthday!

Let me know if anyone is interested in meeting up? Either that or do Ultimate Oz arrival too :)

I'm easy going too, bubbly and happy to get involved in lots of things, sightseeing, Sydney Bridge Climb etc.

Hi Alex!!!
I'm planning exactly the same too:)
And looking for likeminded people for the australian adventure:)
I will travel solo from London on the 6th February. I'm going finally to buy the ticket in these days.
My plan is to visit the East Coast approximately in two months, starting from Sydney :)
probably taking part to Oz Intro programme for the first week.
I'm checking on internet where to stay in Sydney, any tips? I was thinking about the YHA hostels.
So keep in touch, It would be nice to meet up.

Hi Martina

Sorry for my late reply! How are you? Great news - have you booked flights?

I'm in the process of looking at hostels aswell. Wake up hostel looks popular. I'm thinking to book a hostel for the first 3 nights and then see where else I fancy.

Have you made any plans yet?
