Sian,

I'm staying there too when I arrive a month later I hope it's good! :) I'm hoping to get some work before xmas too as my funds haven't turned out the best haha.

Maybe you'll still be around Melbourne when I get there you'll have lots of tips on where's good by then ha!

Have you booked anywhere for xmas/ new year in Sydney yet?

Jjonesy:

I'm new to it too and v nervous but excited too! I am only booked into a hostel for a week from 25th oct-1st Nov when I first arrive in Melbourne and then hoping to meet others wanting to do similar things... I'm hoping to find work and figure out where to stay before going to Sydney for Xmas and New Year...

Yea! A lot of people recommended it to me to. Apparently it's quite loud thou so I'm thinking maybe it's not the best for my first week but hey ho. Ha. Not sure where I'm heading yet no... Definitely just winging it.
Hey roxy. Im not sure where I will be when you arrive... Hopefully working somewhere haha. No I haven't planned anything for new year or Sydney. Apparently most of the hostels are booked up. I'm just going to see what everyone else's plans are and maybe tag along :P

Hey!

I just saw these posts and a lot of it is really similar to me! I arrive in Melbourne on the 28th and have only booked a week so far in a hostel, I've forgotten what it's called but it's in St Kilda I think. Would be really good to chat with people who are around at a similar time. Going alone so quite nervous but excited!

Definitely looking to get a job asap as my funds aren't fantastic either. hopefully some farm work as it would be great to experience something different but to be honest, I'd do anything really.

Wow and there's me being nervous that I'd be the only 1 travelling alone!

Pretty similar to everyone else here! I fly out on the 22nd September and get into Melbourne on the 24th.

I have a job lined up already, it was what I was doing in Perth last year. So if anyone has customer service/Admin experience send me a message on here and I'll put a word in for you!

I'll also be searching for a house share if anyone is in the same boat, ideally in the St Kilda area!

Getting excited now as I'm sure everyone else will be!!

Ben :D

Hey Jade,

I tried to add you but there's no button on your page to add you that I can see? Maybe my phone's just being weird! Mine is under Abigail Bentley though if anyone wants to chat, would be good :)

Hey all!

I arrive in Melbourne on the 27th so very close to you all too! I'm staying at Base in St Kilda, would be great to meet up with you all as on my own too! Basically just winging it too and see where I end up. Happily get a job with others too, my funds probably wont be lasting me ages either.
