Travelling to Aussie on my own

I am travelling alone on 7th December and go to Singapore for two nights. I arrive in Sydeny until the 5th Jan

I want to see as much as I can, I also want to go Melbourne. Is it better for me to go Melbourne from singapore and then work my way down to Sydney?

Can someone please help me plan my itinery and let me know of good places to stay.

I have never travelled alone before so any tips will be much appreciated

There is a lot to see in Sydney. Be mindful unlike Singapore, sydney is a large city and everything is spread out all over the place!
Go to Harbour and do whale watching
Visit the three sisters in Blue mountains.
Fireworks in Sydney on New Years is a must!
Hunter valley is amazing if you like wine and cheese
Go to Jervis bay

Nomads Hostels - Backpackers Hostels Australia New Zealand and Fiji if you plan to go to Byron bay or coastal
YHA if you plan to stay in the cities.
Also there are a lot of cheap independent hostels. I would personally go with YHA

Hey,

don't worry about traveling alone, as soon as you go out somewhere and you're a bit chatty, you'll have lots of people around you in no time!

I think though that your travel plans are a bit too cramped. You've got just under a month to visit an area of an enormous size. How do you plan to travel between the places, by plane or rent a car? If you go by plane, you could simply do a city-hop but wouldn't see much of the countryside Australia and NZ are so famous for.

I would definitely recommend being in Sydney at New Years, but book well ahead!
Let's say you fly from place to place, I would start in NZ, then fly from there up to Queensland and maybe join a bus tour down the coast to Sydney to arrive there at or just before New Years. If you then want to, you could quickly fly to Melbourne for another 2 or 3 days.

I hope that helped a bit!

As Schlichter said:

These places are worth for visiting.
