HI, I'm 23 year old male and I'm planning to go to Australia on a working holiday Visa in September/ October time. I dont have anything booked yet and wont be able to until about June ish.
I want to know where is the best place to go to start off, I'm hoping to do a bit of travelling whilst im there and see as much of the country as possible. I'm not too bothered about what type of Work I do although I'd like to do a bit of farm work so I could do an extra 12 months if I wanted (if thats how it works).
I was wondering if anyone else was going around the same time I'm a bit nervous about going on my own and having someone I know going with me would be awesome.

Hiya. I'm a 23 year old female travelling to cairns in October. On a working visa. I plan to start there in order to travel down to Sydney for new year. Then look for work. I would love to find someone doing a similar thing to me. So if you would like to talk add me on Facebook. My name is Nia Sibley. And we can talk on there it's much easier! Thanks.

Could you explain what you mean by that? Any new website takes a bit of time to get used to, of course, but what is it exactly that you find "hard" to do here at travellerspoint? (Honestly trying to learn, so the admins here can try to fix that, rather than lose people like you.)

I'm about to book some b&b or hostel for each city! Is there any point booking the cheap one? $19 is that a right price?

airbnb looks good for middle places
depends what you want and what your budget is, but this sight has a lot of security to it but may be more expensive than a hostel.
