This thread is marked as being about Sydney

Hi guys!

I'm travelling solo to Sydney in September 2014 for a year with a working holiday visa. Looking to meet some friends along the way, would be great to make some friends before I arrive. Not starting work for the first month so lots of time to explore and meet new people. I'm looking at staying at wake up hostel - any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! If any of you have similar plans it would be good to hear from you :-)

Hi Nicola,

I will be arriving in Sydney on the 11th of September, currently have 7 days booked in a hostel. That is all i have organised. I too have a 12 month working visa!
Do you have any specific plans ? I have none! :) Its slightly mind boggling atm !

Hi guys,

I'm planning to stay in Sydney for the full year I already have an agency job sorted so I can work and travel around whenever I like :) I'm staying in a hostel for 3 weeks when I arrive, have absolutely no plans in that time so any suggestions welcome!

Hey Meg,

That sounds fun! Do you know where you will be staying after the first week? I applied to an agency called HCA and they processed my application pretty quick it was much easier than I thought is was going to be. What sort of work are you looking for?

Definitely keoghan, I'm sure we will all be fine when we get there it's just the fear of the unknown! Haha

Amen. When you say agency arranged work is that any work? Are you a graduate? I have heard of hca is that not hospital related work? Correct me if I'm wrong!!
