Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Some questions...

1. Posted by patience (Full Member 118 posts) 11y Star this if you like it!

•Does seasonal work pay much or is it working for food and accomodation?

•Im going away for a year and just want some advice on what clothes to bring. What do backpackers usually bring? Obviously being a warm climate im going to take T-shirts, Vests, shorts, jeans, trainers, flip flops... Should I take some trousers, shirts and shoes for
a) going out to clubs
b) Chance I get an office job

•Not sure how much to bring and what size backpack to get. Don't want to bring to much but I will be stopping for long periods so maybe its worth bringing a little more. Better to much than not enough?

Stupid questions but there they are.

take too much and u end up carting it around with u or posting it home, take too little and u can always buy extra stuff if u need it

Depending on the season and location our temps vary greatly across Oz. Clothes arent expensive here, you can buy t-shirts for $10 or less if youre not fussy. So dont bring much. You will need a shirt with a collar to get into clubs and nice pubs as well as decent shoes- not trainers.
As for seasonal work, I dont know alot but know they usually offer accommodation and pay as well. Its long days and hard work but you meet fantastic people from all over the world.
A 60litre backpack should be big enough.
