Hi Everyone

I'll be in Sydney for new year alone after my friend leaves to head back to the UK, was wondering if anybody else plans on staying in Sydney for new year celebrations ?

I have a WHV and no plans planned yet as on what to do after new year, would be great to chat to anybody else who is travelling to Aus around this time or anybody who could give advice as to what to do after new year- best places to go etc

I'll be alone, so really eager to meet others who are in the same position as me ☺️?

Hi Chloe and Aaron,

What kind of advice are you looking for regarding post-NYE travel? What to do and where to go in terms of sights and attractions or work?

Incidentally, I do suggest looking for work as soon as possible rather than wait until your money runs out. It took my partner almost two months to find a job and in that time most travellers will have used all their savings.

I also suggest getting out of Sydney rather quickly too as it is so expensive! If you stick to the east coast and head north you'll be hitting the tropics during the wet season so you might want to head south to begin with. Besides, Melbourne is brilliant in summer (huge bias)

Let me know if you have any questions and if you're after advice on sights and attractions, tell us what you're into i.e. hiking, galleries, festivals, etc.

Hi chloe cant find you lol..whats your profile picture? mine is me and another girl quite close up. we will be in Sydney at this time as we are looking to get an apartment between us as hostels are looking at around 500 each for 2 weeks! and we need accommodation for longer anyways.

I have a few leads for jobs in Sydney when im there so im hoping to get a job pretty soon.

we could definitely meet up before :)

Thanks for your advice Kellie ☺️ I think after new year I will definitely head for Melbourne, check out what it's like.
