Hi Guys,

So I'm jetting off to Australia next Wednesday (1st April) and I'm currently excited yet nervous. Landing in Sydney on 3rd April so is anybody else around at this time?

First time travelling alone, and I have no idea what to expect!

Also, if anybody can recommend an Australian bank please that'd be great!

Hi Lottie!
I am going to be in Sydney from the 9th April for 3 days (ish), it's also my first time travelling alone so were in a similar boat :) After Sydney I'm going to be travelling up the east coast for 3 weeks.
Where are you staying in Sydney? I am just deciding which hostel to book!

Hey there! I used Commonwealth because I got a "no fee" account through some deal they had with a WHV site, but the no-fee thing expired after one year. I'm in WA, and I haven't had any problems with Commonwealth over here.

Good luck!
