Ooh, stopping off in Hong Kong sounds like a really good idea! I think I'm planning on flying from Heathrow, where are you flying from? What is the ultimate week in Oz? Is that through STA?

I'm flying out with a girl I work with, we are just going to see how it goes when we get there!
I hope to get some work doing care as that's what I do now!
I'm hoping to book to stay at bounce and I want to stay in Sydney for Christmas and new year ideally, just as long as I can get work there!

Hi Louise

I head out to Sydney on the 19th October and have booked ultimate oz trip for the first week. It a trip that includes lots of different activities in and around Sydney, the company also help you look for work, set up a bank account, tax code and medical number for you. They also help plan onward travel. I think the group size is fairly big and you all stay in the same hostel so its great for making friends as soon as you arrive.

Staying in Sydney for xmas and ny sounds amazing also :)
