Visiting climbers/cyclists from UK. October 2011
Posted July 18th, 2011 - 2:44 pm by from Newcastle upon Tyne, England (Permalink)
Hi all!
I'm brand-spanking-new to Couch Surfing, so please bear with me and excuse any faux-pas.

My girlfriend (Cat) and I are visiting Melbourne for the first time (flying in Friday 21st Oct from Syndey). We are aiming to hire a camper and head up to Arapiles and Grampians for a week and squeeze in some cycling along great ocean road before/after this.

This whole trip is 3 months and the budget has run thin... we thought we could meet some nice people, crash at thiers and perhaps all go up to the climbing areas together.

Also offers of guidebooks/advice are welcome. we can return them as we are flying back out of Melbourne again on 2nd November.

We are both around 30, non-smokers. I've been climbing 15 years and lead up to grade 20 on trad. Cat has been going 1 year, leads 13. We have gear and rope.We won't have bikes though! :)
