Hey guys! Me and a friend of mine are travelling through Australia for about one and a half months. On Saturday the 25th of August we arrive in Melbourne and have planned to stay in the city for a couple of days and then do the great ocean road. Since non of us can drive a car here in Australia and we definitely don't want to do sort of a guided tour thing we are hoping to maybe find nice people on couchsurfing who got the same or similar plans and would like to share a car since this definitely is cheaper and better than guided tours. Let me know if you got interest or any sufggestions. Cheers, fiona

Hi Fiona, I'm in Melbourne now, and I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I don't know (yet) whether I can legally drive here with my UK license, but will look into it.

Hope to see you tomorrow. :)
