Oz and NZ on my own!!

Postby janine7j » Wed Sep 09, 2009 6:31 pm


I am going to be in Australia from 14th December till the beginning of Feb when I will go to New Zealand for a month. At the moment I have just got my flights and 2 short trips from Sydney to Adelaide booked before the New Year...other than that I have nothing planned yet! I will also be on my own so Id love some advice from anyone doing the same sort of thing or has done it before...

- is it quite easy to just sort trips/buses/accomodation when I get there or better to book before?

-I want to do the East Coast but am not sure if its best to get a hop on hop off bus pass or book a tour..also any ideas on how much I should budet for if I just want to take a bus in my own time and book accomodation alng the way.

-anyone going to be there are the same time??!

It is pretty easy to book accommodation and all other stuff, of course during Christmas and New Year will be more difficult, but it should be a problem in general.

I will still be in Melbourne until mid Jan to travel around the world, just let me know if you need more specific info.
