Hey All,

I'm traveling solo on a Working holiday Visa to Australia. I have signed up with Gap360 doing the absolute oz jobs and will be starting in Sydney.. I was just wondering if anyone is travelling around 26th April 15?

It would be great to get some feed back from people who have done this or from people who are currently there as this is wayyy out my comfort zone and I'm starting to get a bit worried!

Also any advice on what to take would be awesome too! I'm thinking about taking a suitcase rather than a backpack..any thoughts?

Hey

I will be heading out to Sydney in July, Cant wait! If your still in Sydney then let me know.

I think you would be better with a back pack, don't learn to hate your luggage. I have a lot of mates that are in OZ already, they have all said the same thing to travel as light as you can.

Hey Jay,

That's great! have you gone through a program or you venturing out by yourself?

As for backpack its easier for guys less clothes to pack :P I should really decide what to take as I don't really have that long till I go!

I think ill still be in Sydney around July time although I don't really have a plan but yea definitely keep in touch :)

Hey

I will be spending my first week on a ultimate OZ Sydney trip, but after that I will be winging it with no set plans x

Hiya,

I literally arrive in Sydney on April 26th! No real plans other than staying with a friend for a few nights before venturing out on my own!! It's exciting but a bit overwhelming too!! X

Haha that's the hostel that has been recommended to me!! I land at 7.45 am. Yep, I'm on my working holiday visa. Think I'm going to see how easy it is to get a job and decide what to do, whether to stay or move on x

lol who knows might see u there! I land at 6.05 Am. Same with me I think finding a job is one of my main worries. Well Keep in touch as we will be landing on the same day and possibly staying at the same hostel if you decide to stay at wake up. Oh are you taking a backpack or a suitcase? xx

Wow we even fly in only hours apart!! Where you flying from?? It's nice to think there's someone in the same boat!!

What type of work you looking for?

I'm going for backpack, already have one so it saves me the cost of sorting anything else, although will need to try not to overpack it!! X

I'm flying from London Heathrow with Malaysia airlines how about you? I know right! although as I've gone through a programme the people that I'm must probably meeting on the first week will be a lot younger than me :S

well I normally work for accounts payable however I want to experience different things so I'm pretty much open to almost anything you?

this is a really bizarre question as I've not had no one mention it but are you taking a travel iron I'm in two minds... lol I just know my clothes get really creased and knowing my luck if I don't take one there won't have facilities that do at hostels x
