Hey guys and girls!

I haven't got anything booked yet, but am looking at getting a WHV and flying to Sydney but a bit nervous going alone. Oct would be a good time for me to go too.

What are your plans??

I'm Yasmin and I'm 22 by the way x

Thank you @Kelliebarnes that's really helpful!

@HeidiParadis Yes will probably stay in a hostel for the first week or so, heard it's the best way to meet new people. Do you know of any good ones? How long are you planning on staying in Sydney for? Happy to meet up

@Conor03 Have you started looking for work yet? Or are you going to wait until you're out there and get hunting?

Hi all!

I am also planning a trip to Australia on a WHV, but don't have anything planned yet as I have to graduate first haha, my guess is this will be settled in the next two months. Next thing is to fly to Melbourne or Sydney (I guess) and stay there somewhere in a hostel or a flatshare. Then try to find work (and explore Melbourne/Sydney and it surroundings), or does anyone have some ideas to arrange a job from here(home)?

I'd love to hear from you guys!

TWO 22 year olds coming to Sydney 3rd October, unsure on plans wanting to hear other peoples and to find travel/flatshare buddies.

Plan was to work for a couple of months but we are easy!

suggestions welcome, friends welcome! x

Quoting HannahAMc

I land in Sydney first week of October very nervous but so excited!

Do you know of any good websites to find a flatshare? I have a 1 year WHV too.



Me and a friend are moving to Sydney October 3rd, flying from Heathrow on the 2nd. Wanting to get a hostel to get sorted then to meet people to find a flat share with also. Are you staying in a hostel first?

What are the best hostels in Sydney?

We both have WYV so wanting to work for the first couple of months up until xmas and new year so we can hopefully save and travel in the new year!

Also thinking about going to Bali when we first arrive as I have a friend who currently went for 200$ from darwin! A treat of a holiday before settling in really!! Thought it would be fun to meet and find people in hostels and on these forums to enjoy all this experience with! So if anyone on here has similar plans get in touch :)
