I'm from Canada and am leaving for Australia on a WHV for as long as I can. I also plan on re-applying for my second WHV, and hopefully by then I'll either have a great job and be sponsored, and or be married. Just wanted to know what are the first things I should do after I step off the plane. This includes everything from banking to places to stay. Thanks for the help.

First thing to do is find a bar.

Get drunk and ask an Aussie girl to marry you/help you out with banking, sponsorship etc

Only going to give brief outline.... If you plan on travelling NewZeland and Fiji then open an ANZ bank account. As they have branches in both places If you are just staying in Oz then open a Commonwealth account as they have the most atm's nationwide. You get charged for using the ATM of any other bank...

After that, visit Travellers Contact Point, Dymocks Building, George St, Sydney. It' got everything, jobs, places to live,cars, tours, internet, everything....

Then, go to Three Wise Monkeys on George St and get plastered or else look me up and I'll show you where to go........ See you in Cargo, Sat nite.......
