Planning on going to Oz around March/April 2014 but I’m a little scared of going alone! If anyone else is going around about this time and is in the same boat as me I’d love to chat to you guys and see if we can arrange even just the start of our trips together. Just drop me a message!

Thanks, Fiona x

Yeah if all goes to plan I’d love to meet people to buddy up with! I’ve been looking into Ultimate Oz as well though for the first week but I’m not sure yet, depends how many people I can maybe meet up with through this… Not really got many plans yet I just kind of want to go with the flow and see what happens

thats great, its so hard to plan australia as its so big and has so much to do, ive done some research however on where to go at what times of year.im a qualified plumber, i know the pay is amazing in oz but our nvq’s mean nothing over there and so more certification needs to be done, fruit picking and bar work tends to be the best jobs for backpackers. it would be great to meet like minded people and share the experience with, also its safer and more enjoyable. where abouts in england are you from?

im going for a month, then back to london, then off to oz in april, fiji and new zealand are supposed to be amazing my mate just got back and said its a must do, it all depends on how i get on with money.

Not really looked into working visas for NZ cause I’m only planning on travelling there not working, I’m guessing they will be similar though

Hi guys

I’m planning to go to oz round march as well for three months, then new zeland for three months. I haven’t got anything booked yet but hopefully will be in the next few weeks. I’m going to book the ultimate oz trip as well as it looks so much fun.

I’m travelling alone and I’m very nervous about it so it would be great to meet some people with similar plans. Hope to here from you soon.

Thanks
