Teen girl first time solo travel: Australia and New Zealand

Jump to last reply

Hi all!
I'm new to this forum and I'm here to get some help/advice on planning trip to Oz (and possibly NZ) this June.
As the title goes, I'm a teen girl who is new to solo travel.
I want to go to Oz and NZ for about 14 days or more but less than 3 weeks.
My budget is somewhere around $2600~$3000, including airfare (which is about $1000 for a roundtrip as I'm living in Japan currently.)

Is it possible to go to Sydney - Melbourne - Cairns - NZ (Queensland only - i have a friend there) in about 18 days?

also, how's weather down there in June?

I know those two countries are very tourist-friendly and hospital, but will a teenage girl be able to navigate easily without a car?
