Looking to leave VIC for a month or so!

Hi all!
Been feeling a bit lost lately so thought Iíd try my luck here.
Iím 22, am currently working from home at a job with very flexible hours, and over the past few months have made a point of doing little weekend trips around VIC, SA, and just up and down the coast. But Iím feeling like I need to really just leave Melbourne for a whole month, meet new people, change of scenery, etc. Iím just not sure where to go and what to do, as I donít know many other people outside of Melbourne. Could anyone recommend any courses? Or places to stay? Iím really flexible as to where, but somewhere sunny and fun would be great. Any help would be awesome! Thanks in advance

You are not on your own at feeling a bit lost. Most of us struggle in different ways. Two thoughts. One is to have a driving trip, head north up the coast where the weather will hopefully be warmer. Stay at youth hostels or backpackers where you will meet other young people.

The other idea is to find a volunteer job somewhere for a short time. Check online but perhaps something like helping with the turtles at Mon Repos (wrong time of year now I think) or helping a charity in some way. BlazeAid might be worth checking, they are aiding people after the dreadful fires we had. There will be people to talk and work with and you'd have a feeling of satisfaction at doing something for others.

Try to stay aware of any sudden border closures so you can get home again.

I've always thought this was an interesting program, and something I'd have liked to have done in my youth.

My niece has had some terrific “ woofers” on her farm over the years. Just from that point alone, if think it would be a good idea.

Of course - as in anything, do your due diligence, use your common sense.
