Posted May 1st, 2011 - 3:49 am by from Nuremberg, Germany (Permalink)

I am searching for Travelmates for the Great Ocean Road, i would like to start between the 18th and 25th June.
I have no car, but i would share a rent car or give people with a car some money to take me along.

I like nature, music and interesting people, I can teach you firespitting and I have lots of crazy stories to tell. So whoever you are we are going to have a good time!

Hi Lukas,

I would like to drive the Great Ocean Road in June, too.
Maybe I'd like to go all the way to Adelaide, but that's not sure yet. What do you think?

I don't have a car, but renting or relocating one shouldn't be a problem. I'm easy-going, like traveling, meeting interesting people and just having fun!

Cheers, Johanna

Hey Johanna,

sounds great!

I have free time from about the 20th of June to the mid of July, so we can also change plans spontanously; i would keep this offer open for others to join, so that it might get cheeper, what do you think?

We could meet in Melbourne and discover that together, too if you want, i even have friends there were you could probably stay for one or two days.

Thanks for the replie

Hi Lukas & Johanna,

I am travelling to Australia this june and will reach MEL on 28th Night. I am really excited after reading details about GOR trip so, if you guys can plan the trip around 29th or 30th June, I can join in.. till Adelaide.
I have to catch a flight from Perth on 4th July, so can take a flight from Adelaide on 3rd or so.

Hey mates,
I just arrived in Melbourne about a week ago but i traveled through Canada last year with a big van so i have some road trip experience. I'm in Melbourne right now and I'll be somewhere in Tasmania during the beginning of June but the second half of June fits pretty good in my traveling plans. I would love to join your road trip its probably a lot of fun with a bunch of people.

I already bought a car its not a big one but pretty low on gas but i think it wouldn't fit more than 3 people cause if we have a lot of luggage it might get to tight.

Hey Max,

Great to hear that..
If you can plan the trip around 29th or 30th June, it will be really helpful, as i have kind of fixed schedule since i have to be in perth by 3rd.

I am low on luggage so no issues about the space.. though i myself might take more space :P lol

Sounds all good boys!

Maximilian, we should catch up earlier, I am in Tassie right now and can get you into the bonorong wildlifepark for free!

Hi Lukas & Max,

Could you pls suggest that how many days the trip will be planned for?
Since now that the wheels are in motion, we will most certainly make this happen, but i need to book my tickets for travelling from Adelaide to Perth.
So in case if you both can get in touch with each other to finalize the dates soon, i.e. leaving Melbourne and arriving at Adelaide, it will help me book my tickets earlier and at a good price for sure ;)

Thanks a ton,

Hi Lukas & Max,

Hi Guys,

I have booked my ticket from Adelaide to Perth, its 3rd July early morning.
So i am like fixed with my dates now.
Can travel from Melbourne from 29th/30th July and got to make it to Adelaide on 2nd June.

I will look forward to hear from you guys.

Sorry Rajeev,

I am not good in planing ahead, and also have to see what the others say before i decide about a certain date, your date also seems a bit late for me.
Maybe it is worth checking this group for other travellers that go a bit later.
I am shure we would take the Great Ocean Road.


which date are you thinking about?

Posted June 8th, 2011 - 8:07 am by from Rajsamand, India (Permalink)
Not a problem Lukas,

Just in case if you plan sometime around my date, do post me.. :)

I can get a big 6 bed Campervan from Rental Relocations for 5 Dollars a day plus 110 Dollar fuel money between the 21st and the 30th of June if anyone wants to join me...

Hi folks,

I am out of the plan because my AUS visa has been rejected by the embassy so my trip stands cancelled.
