Hi!! Just joined this website and wanted say that I will be arriving in Sydney on Nov.10. I have a work visa but no idea where I will work, live etc.. If anyone is going to be there or already is and has any advice. I am traveling alone so any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.

I will also be in Fiji for a week prior(Nov. 3-10), so if anyone else is going to be there....holla at me.

Hi Katie,
Find yourself a good hostel.
Open a bank account.
Get your tax file number.
And Medicare Card.
And an Australian mobile number.
Join some of the backpacker recruitment agencies.
Get the Saturday paper for share accommodation ads.
And most importantly, don't forget to relax and have a good time!
If you want specific info on anything just drop me a line.
Good luck!
