A backpack it is then!! Thanks. Think I'll go ahead and book wake up for first week. I was thinking of doing one of those packages like ultimate oz but will meet people in hostels anyway. Is anyone staying around Sydney for while or are ya going to get straight into travelling? I need a travel buddy!!

Isn't it a hostel? How much money is enough to have saved?

Wake Up! is indeed a hostel in Sydney. One of a cluster of large hostels right around Central Station (together with Railway Square YHA, Sydney Central YHA and 790 on George.

As for money, AUD $5000 is the absolute minimum when you're on a WHV, but that'll barely last for two months for most people. AUD $10,000 is a better amount to aim for; gives you a bit of headroom with doing activities and getting your bearings before having to find work.
