A year- how good is that! Well, I wouldnt be focussing just on Sydney as there is just so much other great stuff to see and do and it is more expensive in Sydney.
What kind of work are you after?
Queensland is a really great place for backpackers and theres a great vibe there. I love holidaying there. You cant miss Darwin, Alice Springs and Uluru in Ntn Territory. Western Aust is enormous but has alot to offer too. Sth Aust, Victoria and Tasmania all are very different again and you'll love them too!
Depends what youre interested in and whether you wanna keep moving or settle.
