I will be arriving in Sydney on the 20th of October. I am coming from the USA on the WHV! Just booked my flight & visa was granted last week, and have no idea where I will be staying yet! It looks like most of you have been planning for months and are prepared unlike me!

Have any of you applied for jobs yet or will you search for jobs once you land?
I have sent my resume to a few employers, but have no idea what to expect when I arrive to know if I should accept a job before landing in Aus or explore for a few weeks to figure out where I'd like to settle for a few months first. Any suggestions?

What about Concerts and Events? I posted a new thread, but haven't received any comments. Anyone planning on attending the Mumford & Sons or Florence + the Machine concert in Sydney the beginning of November? What about festivals?? I know its the summer months and there are loads of concerts happening & tickets are going fast so just wanted to see if anyone was up for going or knew about any other events going on they would recommend!

Thanks y'all!

Hi everyone!

I'm off to Sydney too, flight is on the 30th Sept and actually arrive on the morning of the 2nd. Got a few nights booked at Base before doing the Ozintro week. I'm travelling on my own & am 30 years old - have left it right until the last minute to do this! I am hoping to get a visa for a second year too, but I'll have to apply for that before I'm 31 and have completed the farmwork etc so will just have to see how it all works out. Excited and scared now, seems like there's a lot of in the same boat though.

I know this thread has been going for ages, but would it be possible to add me to the facebook group? I'm at also if anyone wants to add me so we can chat plans would love that as well
