Sydney or Melbourne area 19.8.-25.8

Hi everyone, I'm visiting a friend in Australia (Sydney) this August and I'd like to go hiking for a week around Sydney or possibly Melbourne. Unfortunately, my friend is flying to Mauritius on the 18th of August and since based on what I've heard (dropbears!!...I know they're not real :-) ) hiking in Australia is not as safe as in Europe (and since it's more fun to hike with other people) I'm looking for some hiking mates. My flight back to Europe is on the 26th from Sydney, so I'm free anytime between August 19 and 25 (I guess we could start on the 18th already).

My plan is to go on a 5-ish day trip but nothing is set in stone and we can arrange something that fits well (like multiple shorter trips, either with the same person/group or with different people). As you can see from the description I don't have a definite plan yet, I guess it depends on others a lot.

About me:

I'm 28, Czech, currently finishing my PhD in maths (probability theory), I speak Czech, English and German. I also speak some Spanish and Portuguese - enough to have a conversation about most topics but you'd need to have some patience with me and talk a bit slower. I have experience with hiking in Europe, mostly in the Alps and other mountains, I've done some via ferratas (vias ferratas?), but no mountaneering. I'm uploading a picture of myself from a hike in Austrian Alps last May (also two additional photos from the same place to give you an idea about the level of difficulty I'm comfortable with).

As I sort of mentioned already, I'm fine with going alone with just one other person as well as with a group of people.

Looking forward to hearing from you and hiking with you!
