Hey all

I'm after some advice.....

I am going to Oz for 3 months, do you think £3,000 is enough????

Also do you think its a good idea to open an account in Oz or just use my uk account???

depends on where you want to go and what you want to do but 3000 pounds is a lot of money in australia. and if u do run out it's easy to work illegally here

come down

stay at a hostel

find a guy

convince him to move in with him

convince him to take you out

theres a saving of 2000 pounds there

and if all else fails, work in one of the many cafes or restaurants.

theyll happily pay you cash in hand.

3000 pounds is roughly 7200 australian dollars.
You can stay in high-end hostels, buy enough groceries for real meals, and travel from place to place by bus every week for about 60 dollars a day, so that'd make your 7200 last for four months. Do some tours and eat out in restaurants a few times, it'll last only three months, but since that's all that you're asking for, it'll be perfectly fine. :)
