Hey, Im 21 finishing Uni, and I'm heading out to Sydney for a 12 month working holiday at the end of September and was wondering if theres anyone else out there then/ anyone has any advice on hostels, jobs, going alone etc.

Thanks!

Nick

Hey Nick - I just wrote up a ton of info for friend. Would be too long to post here, but I will try to put it up in the next couple of days and send you a link.

short version - try to work-trade instead of staying at hostels, get involved with community groups (meetup, play sports, whatever) to meet as many locals as you can. Jobs are more about who you know than what you know!

Hope that helps, and I'll try to be back in a few days with a link to more details!

Hey Nick -

Finally got it posted.

  1. 6 for my two cents on hostels including a link to one guy's experience, #11 for job stuff, and the rest is just general advice.

Hope that helps! Cheers!

Would be great to meet up with a few of you guys for a few drinks!
Staying at base hostel - be good to hear from any of you ha
