Hey I'm travelling to Australia late October 2015 om a WHV, planning on being based in Sydney first and getting a job for a few months to see the new year in in Sydney and then wanting to travel! Want to travel up the East Coast and possibly work anywhere that seems fun, and definitely going to stay in Melbourne for a bit. I'm a solo female, 23 from London. Quite scary thought- any advice as to where is good to stay/what to do before going etc would be great. Looking to meet people also doing the same beforehand!

Hello! Ive just got my WHV and going to be going to Australia in September time. Never travelled anywhere before, and im also doing this solo. Looking to start my journey in Brisbane, find work there for a few months before travelling south to Sydney & Melbourne.

Hey Sophie

I will be heading out in July and stopping off in Sidney for a few months on a WHV also solo. Seems scary but im sure when your there it wont be hard to make friends and find your feet. The ultimate OZ have many trips that are good for solo travellers to get started. take a look might help you get started.

I am going to be in Sydney in September! Also a solo female. Just booked my ticket, so excited. So I can't offer any advice, except I am in the same boat!

September is a very popular month to go. Many people want to get work and a place to see in the new year. I've said this to a few people already, but July-September time is the best to go. It becomes a more harder to find a place nearer to Christmas.

Also if anyone is looking for work in Sydney, drop me a PM and I can give details on a place that is always hiring.
