    I’m also doing this trip. I’m 22 and from Griffith, a small town in NSW, but am living in Syd now.
    I’m really looking forward to this and travelling solo.

    I should check up on this post more often.
    I’m also going to be in London for a few days before the trip and I’m spending another month and a half in Europe after it. SO excited.
    Casey, do you live in Bathurst or just an enthusiast – good luck getting to it – can you get to Bathurst in three hours from Sydney?
    Sorry I should have introduced myself earlier, my name is Sally.
    I hope there will be enough people for the trip – if there aren’t enough people they move us to another one, but that would stuff up the dates.

    No, I live in Newcastle, but did live in Bathurst for a while for Uni…
    And I go every year to the race…

    LOL, my plans for that week just got worse, with driving to Canberra 2 days later for a Powderfinger concert, Ha…

    Where are you from Sally?

  • 8 May 2010 Casey said


    Wait, I just read back and realised I’m a retard, LOL.
    My best friend is from Griffith.
    Been there a couple of times…

  • 8 May 2010 Sally said


    I think I am too, I looked at the first posts and it says there that you’re from Newcastle.
    That is a busy week, I’m contemplating getting a hotel room after the trip to recover for a few days before going back to hostels, but you’re flying back to Aus, heading out to Bathurst, then on to Canberra.
    Although both the Bathurst 1000 and Powderfinger will be awesome.
    I dived into the forums yesterday bigtime, and I’m wondering if we should set up a facebook group for our trip, to try to get to know a few people before the trip begins?

    Hi guys! Just checking, did you end up going? How did you find the experience? I’m looking at doing the same tour August this year but have read some absolutely horrible reviews about Contiki lately… it’s slightly offputting! Just thought i’d ask around at the source. Most of the positive reviews i can find are five years old so was hoping to hear from someone who had been a little more recently. Thanks!
