Question

Hi all! I'm a 21y/o female coming to Australia in May all by lonesome self. I'm nervous and excitement both:D--but definitely more excitement.

I'm going to be down around Sydney and Melbourne and where ever else I land for three months with my working visa--hoping to find a job at a bar or possibly a ski resort. I'm pretty open at this point for anything and am down for any kinds of adventure and fun.

From what I gather, it should be fairly easy to meet other people, but it would be nice to know some others who have same or similar plans as I do before hand. If you do and would like to meet up, drop me a line. Or if you have any advice for me, that is definitely welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!

Holla! I'm off to oz in may aswell on my own with a WHV. I'm going to Perth first, and then to Cairns, and then travelling down maybe. No proper set plans yet tho. If you wanna meet for drinks let me know.

Hey, you know what? We should all meet up somewhere in a big group! Be interesting to put faces to all your names.

Good onya Beady!! Great to hear a backpacker coming to the West Coast of Australia. From my enthusiasm you may have guessed that I am from Perth! Its a shame I head off for Europe in March though, but if you want to know stuff about my super city tell me. yessss I am biased
