I'm Sam, 21, and so relieved everyone else on here is feeling exactly the same as me! :D I plan on leaving late September/early October.
I was thinking about starting off in Brisbane and around the Gold Coast, finding work around that area, then head to Sydney for Christmas, and then carry on down to Melbourne before heading to New Zealand in January. Does anybody recommend a different route?
Thanks :D
