Hi Anna,

I am booked up on this tour.

I’ll be travelling on my own as well so looking forward to meeting up with people and enjoying the trip. I’m based in Edinburgh…

Hi, Anna & Gavin

I’m doing the Grand Aussie which is made up of days 1-14 of the Island Suntanner and days 1-9 of the Rock N Top. So I’m not sure if I’ll be getting on a separate bus or if we all go together and separate at the end of the Suntanner. So I might see you’s. Well I should because I think both the pick-ups are at the YHA on the 10th.

Hi Anna and Gavin,

I’m also on the same trip as Alex, we met on here a few months ago and you guys are the first we have found on a similar trip! I dont know if we’ll all be on the whole trip at same time but I’m sure we will all start at the same time on the 10th from the YHA. I arrive on the 9th in Sydney! It’s my first time travelling alone too, and I’ve never been to Oz before so it’s a big deal! Glad I’m not the only one going alone :slight_smile:

I’m really nervous about it too but it’s going to be an incredible experience!! What hostel are you staying at before the trip and what date do you fly into Sydney? I arrive on the 9th and I’m staying at the YHA where the meetup is on the 10th. :slight_smile:

Hi Anna,

I would be more than happy to help you sort things out, just give me a shout! I’m staying at this hostel for one night when I arrive, so we could maybe arrange to meet if we get in same day.
