Think im having a mid life crisis at 30!!! i have realised that this is my last chance to get a working visa for OZ!!! Im just not sure what sort of funds i realistically need??? I know how long is a piece of string but what is the minimum and how easly is it to find work when i get there??? I want to be able to do and see things and assume i will be stay in Hostels to keep the costs down...

Any advise or information would be great!!!

Hey Calypso

I totally understand where your coming from with the "mid-life crisis" thing! Im 28 and its now or never for me!! And Im going alone, so pretty scary thought

Im going to take a year out to travel Oz and Nz and at the moment Im planning to take about £4000(????), but thats not including my flights and extras...Im hoping thats going to be enough to get me by?! I plan to stay in hostels too, not only cheaper but bound to meet some great peeps along the way! I was thinking of getting a discount card which should knock a little off hostels and travel/tours?! Try this site out.. http://www.vipbackpackers.com

I found this job site quite helpful, gives you an idea on the Harvist Trail seasons.... http://jobsearch.gov.au select an area then Harvest Trail...but like you Im unsure how easy it will really be to find the work...so if anyone has some thoughts they could share, would be great!

hope this helps you out..
