Aussie trip to Yosemite

Hi,
Am from Australia and have never been to Yosemite before and would like to get some advice please. Have 3 weeks to burn this year and am a bit daunted as to where to start so have some questions.
Have 15 years leading trad/multipitch experience in Oz currently leading up to 5.10c. Though my big wall exp has been up to 350 meters/single day stuff.

Is it realistically possible to meet climbers locally at camp to climb with. ideally with some local crag knowledge with me being from overseas?
My trad rack is single cams, double nuts, hexes, draws slings double ropes etc but obviously not enough gear for multi day aid/big wall?
Is it 6 months in advance to get camp sites? ideally will be climbing more than camping.
Much thanks,
Waz.

I live 2 hours from Yosemite. Let me know when you're coming and maybe I can climb with you.

it is easy to meet people in camp four in yosemite valley, but you cannot make reservations, it is walk-in only. in tuolumne meadows, head to the store in the morning, people gather outside in the parking lot. i'd try reposting on here once your trip gets closer to try to find a partner or two and then just wing it. oh, and leave the hexes at home. :)

Thanks Amy for the suggestions. As much as I love placing hexes will take the advice :)
Cheers.
