What is the best way, in a small state (Canberra, Australia), to get your self noticed to other muscians? How would I go about trying to find people to jam with, or to even form a band?

I've just finished year 12, and now I begin (so much damn free time!)
But where???

Please, I need something, or sombody to help me abit here... I almost feel lost in my place in this world...

Word of Mouth is the best advertising tool. Also start showing up at other people's gigs and just talk to them. Put ads up.. although i'm not a fan of them. Use myspace. etc/
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

man, its Australia, we never get noticed no matter how good we are. My guitar teacher used to teach Dimebag how 2 shred. Yet does anyone notice the little Aussie battlers??? NO

oops i just realised that what i sed ^ was completely irrelevant. Play at all your mates 18ths and stuff. Just offer to play anytime anywhere, eventually someone is going to hear you

Play one of your shows naked. Then whenever you play again, the crowd will be like, "Hey they're the naked band." And you're known.

There's this musician in my town who plays bass and wears a chicken suit to every gig. He goes by the name of Elvis Chicken...odd.

Play on the street, that way lots of people will notice you. You may also get money from it too.
