Hi guys

I'm looking a working and travelling around Australia starting in November sometime, I haven't decided where I want to start yet? I'm thinking north but I am very flexible with this, i want to do a bit of work when I am there, possibly in agriculture, is anyone considering the same sort of stuff?
I am very excited at the prospect, but also slightly scared about going all that way alone!
Thanks!

While I am there I would love to do a Sydney bridge climb and a skydive! I would also like to look at possibly getting a camper van and doing some site seeing and exploring this way xx

Hi Kate,

I'm going to New Zealand and Australia for six months from September through to February and am travelling alone too - I guess it's natural to be scared a little but I'm sure you will have an amazing experience =)

I'm going purely for pleasure and am looking at being in Melbourne Nov/Dec, Adelaide Dec/Jan and Sydney Jan/Feb. I currently have no rigid arrangements, bridge climb sounds brilliant but I'm not brave enough to do a skydive.

If our paths crossed I would definitely be available for a day out or two.

Gordon :) x

Hi Kate,

I will be in Australia from Feb 15. Starting in Melbourne, travelling up to Darwin for a few weeks, then back down to Adelaide. Also looking for work in Agriculture to pass a bit of time and earn some money. No rigid plans, have an open ticket to NZ and have to be in Costa Rica by end of July, trying to stay as flexible as possible. :)

Sounds exciting! Definitely keep us posted with what you are doing!
Anything you want to do while you are there?
Will-what's happening in Costa Rica?

Haha. What kind of agriculture will you be wanting to work in? I have contacts in the dairy industry out in NSW and Vic, given that's my line of work in UK, So I will be doing that I guess. :)

I would love to SkyDive again; been a few years sinse my last one.

ooo well I was thinking more fruit picking (as I have no experience in farming!) my brother is a dairy farmer as well though!!
