Hi! I’m Fionn and 21 from the UK and I’m looking at travelling to Australia in September 2016 after I graduate from university. I’ll be travelling alone and I’m quite nervous about it all!
I’ve never travelled alone nor worked abroad and would be grateful for any advice/recommendations from people who have done it or anyone going around the same time who wants to chat about their trip - I’d be really grateful as I’m excited but sooooo nervous haha
Fionn xo

Hi Fionn!

I’m Alex, one of the managers here at Gapyear.com. Great to hear you’re planning on heading out to Australia this Autumn, what a graduation present to yourself!

Travelling alone can be a daunting thing for anyone to do, so it’s always good to speak to people who have been in the same boat as you to give you a hand and make the whole experience easier (and ultimately more exciting) for you! I have spent quite a bit of time out in Australia myself, and having done a huge round the world trip by myself a while ago would love to help you out and give you some advice on what to do, where to go, and how to plan and organise the trip!

If you have a chance would you be able to give me a call on 0208 865 0774 and we can have a chat about your plans and start getting things sorted for you for your amazing Australian Adventure!

Hiya,
I’m planning to go Australia at the end of September for 6months - 1yr.
I have no idea where to start. No idea where to go and no ideas where to go.
I am hoping there is people that are as clueless as me about going to Australia?!!

Hiii!

I just came back from backpacking Asia and Australia and now want to go back in September 2016 for a working visa year. Was planning to start off in Melbourne. Im also travelling alone and looking to see if anyone here have any similar plans?? (-:

Hey annvi,

I too just started this past September week in Melbourne. If you did make the jump back to Melbourne this fall, let me know if you’d like to meet up and do some city exploring.
