I'm heading out to Sydney on the WHV and arrive on 6/11! This is my first solo trip so a little nervous but hoping because I'm staying in a hostel for the first week it will be easy to meet other people.

I'll be staying at Base for the first week, does anyone recommend to stay there or move on?

Also, for people who have already travelled what is your advice on setting up a bank account?

If anyone is going out around the same time as me then let me know would love to speak to people before I actually arrive!

I'm heading out to Sydney a few weeks earlier but I'm going to NZ almost straight away so will arrive back in Sydney about that time. It's my first solo trip as well and hoping to do the same - meet people so I'm not wandering around on my own! Although thankfully that doesn't sound very likely haha.

I'm on a WHV too, but have no real idea what's gonna happen once I get out there - hoping everything falls into place :) Do you want to travel whilst you're in Aus? I'm hoping to do the East Coast once I've earnt some money!

Yeah I'm kinda hoping everything falls into place too! I want to travel but I need to work first to save up enough money :) Not sure where I want to go yet though I'll probably just go with the flow!
