Hey,

I'm m/22/Canada and I'm looking for people who are interested in backpacking australia from november to may or somewhere in the time frame. I havent decided where the start or finish of my trip is going to be so I'm open to ideas. Since I'm a seasonal employee I have lots of time off. If you are interested drop me a line.

Thanks

Cory

Depending on where you are and when (I live in Sydney), I'm up for a little bit of travelling! Flights around OZ are pretty good when you get sales.
I would love to visit Adelaide or go back to Melbourne or something

Hey,

I'll be traveling from Melbourne to Cairns around 16 Dec 2006 - 4 Jan 2007. I'm thinking of using the backpacker bus and hostel services. I think New years in Cairns will be amazing.

Just to sidetrack this for a moment...I spent last New Year's in Cairns b/c I didn't think rushing back to Sydney was a good idea. I figured I'd built up the fireworks and New Year's there in my mind and would only be disappointed.

But....New Year's in Cairns wasn't great. I regretted not going back to Sydney after I heard everyone raving about how awesome it was. I so wish I had been there! Live and learn I guess. If you can deal with the massive crowds I say spend New Year's in Sydney.

On the radio here they keep talking about some news years party on manley beach or some other beach that sounds pretty awesome. They have the basement jaxx and some other people doing the music.

Slightly off topic but if you get to melbourne make sure you check out this hostel group. Clean, relatively new
