I'm soon heading off on my RTW trip. After a brief journey through Asia, and before I backpack around the rest of the world, I'm heading to Sydney with the plan to live and work for a few months (working Jan-Mar 06). How easy is it to get temp work and to rent somehere? Can anyone offer a good contact or any advice??

Hi Emski,

I'm planning a trip very similar to your's, except I arrive in Sydney in March '06 and plan to work for 3 months.

I've found http://www.travellersatwork.com to be a pretty useful website for getting an idea of what jobs are available to backpackers.

What I think I'll do is wait till I get over there, and then go into a recruitment company such as Hays and sign up on the spot - http://www.hays.com.au

Additionaly, http://www.gumtree.com.au gives a good idea of the various types of accommodation available and what the costs involved are, as does http://www.domain.com.au

Good Luck!

Kate
