I am a British girl heading down under in July and wondered if anyone else was travelling solo and had any ├╝ber fun plans they'd like to share?!

This is my first time solo travelling and I'm pretty excited! Have no idea where to begin and finish but I'm heading for Sydney first week in July. I've looked at hostels and know which one I'm heading for.

Anybody shed some light on how long it takes for WH visa to be accepted/processed?

Any tips, friendly travel buddies, or advice would be hugely appreciated... Help a girl out :)

My name's Nicoline,I arrive end of June and I'm staying for a week at the Wake up hostel. Then... We'll see!
We could meet up if you like! I don't have plans but I want to get a job as soon as possible to cover my stay and discover Sydney :)

My visa was granted really quickly ! Around 12h after I submitted.

Hey hun :)

Ive just finished travelling the east coast, im in sydney at the minute for a 2 months then travelling up to perth! if you have similar plans let me know!

my visa was authorised within about 3 hours! this time of year isnt too busy as its winter around nov-jan it can take up to two weeks.

my advice - enjoy every minute dont look back you will love every second i have i wouldnt change a thing

I arrive in Sydney from England on July 3rd...hoping to live and work there for a year...still need to book my hostel, Ive stayed at the Jackaroo in Kings cross and the sydney harbour YHA, both are great and easy to meet people.

Think this time I might stay at the Wake up or central YHA!

Be good to hear from anyone else who will be in sydney :))
