Hellooo my names Amber I'm hopefully going to Sydney around Feb 2016 for one year on a working working visa. No set plans, thinking of doing the ultimate oz when I first get there for a week. Going on my own slightly nervous, but if I don't do it know I never will lol!!

Anyone going around the same time? And any ideas on what to do would be appreciated

Cheers

hey,
i go to oz in February on my own as well, also doing a working holiday, starting off in Sydney, i decided not to do one of those ultimate package things, it seems like it will be pretty easy to make friends in hostels etc so im not too worried yet :)

Hey 😀

Ah cool! Have you booked you flights and stuff yet? I'm thinking of doing it just so I have kind of a plan when I first get there. Yeah hopefully it should be easy enough lol.

Yeah I've booked pretty much everything, I did it all real early so that I couldn't back out lol plus it helps me to save if I have a definite goal in mind :)

Thats good! I want to get everything booked this month really and then can focus on saving which is easier said then done lol. Are you just staying in Sydney then? My aim is to travel up the east coast:)

Yeah Im starting in Sydney for a week then I was thinking I'd either get the greyhound up the east coast or if I'd met anyone from my hostel doing the same thing I'd see about hiring a campervan/car, are you thinking of doing the rural work so that you extend your visa for a second year?

That sounds good! I looked at doing the greyhound route it seems easy enough. Yeah im up for doing rural just scared or the spiders lol

I'm planning for March! Where are you guys coming from? I haven't decided whether to go for a package yet or not, I was kind of relying on the friendly hostel people haha I don't want to overplan and end up not trying new places and stuff in order to "stick to the plan"

Hey I'm coming from England, I'm not doing a package either, want to be flexible in case I meet people in the hostels as well, just gonna go with the flow and see what happens, where abouts are staying when u get there? Where are u coming from? :)
