I am new to this, apologies if i have just butted into your chat.
I am 26yrs old from Glasgow
I am looking to fly out to melbourne mid september time. I was thinking of doing a three day group trip with ultimateOz, it looks pretty good fun and seems like a good way to make friends and see places.

As i will be travelling alone (slightly scared) was wondering if anyone else was heading to melbourne about this time? I am looking to find three months farming work almost straight away then maybe travel for a bit, then find a job. My plan is to stay out for a year then if i like it hopefully i will be granted another year.

Fiona :)

Hey Fiona

I'm heading to Melbourne Sept 26th from Manchester (will turn 22 just before I fly out) and pretty much planning the same as you in terms on finding farm work for a few months before traveling for a bit after. I'm going alone so feel a bit apprehensive too! Good to know there's others around though :)

Hey Fiona

Sorry for the late reply, for some reason I didn't get a notification about your message on the thread!

I don't think I'm gonna do Ultimate Oz or Oz Intro to save a bit of money really. Signing to a job search thing with STA Travel and hoping to jump into work for a couple of months when I get there :)

Ah, yeah definitely worth having a look around for flights, sometimes you can get great ones!

SO exciting!!

Hey Abby!

I also decided against the Ultimate Oz & Oz Intro.

My plan is to try and find work almost straight away, and then once I have made more money hopefully do more travelling around.

Very exciting times ahead!
