travelling alone!

So in 1 months time I am heading to Australia to travel for 2 months but my friend has ditched me so I am now doing it solo!
I am starting to get very nervous as I have never travelled or done anything on my own before!
Any tips?
Thankyou! X

Hello and welcome to Australia! People are very friendly here and it's pretty safe, so it's a good place to solo travel. If you stay in backpackers or try couchsurfing you will meet other travellers, and also might be able to participate in excursions. Wherever you're going you should try to take a bus/hire car to the natural attractions around the city, eg great ocean rd, Uluru, beaches, Tasmania, cairns as these are some of the most beautiful parts.

Have a great trip!

Mate, do you really think AUS is really that dangerous? All above 4 points suits Europe, not here.

Aussies are easy going, friendly...

I was in a similar situation, my friend did not save enough money ... I went with Ultimate Oz and they got me settled in - my first week was all about meeting people, having fun and sorting out everything I need to be able to work - worth a look if you think you might want that extra something to get to started on your travels! Have fun!! Australia is amazing!
