Alright, I am in need of advice:
I arrived in Sydney a couple weeks ago on a 4-month work visa with a plan of living and working here for the majority of that time. Now that I am here, however, the idea of backpacking up the coast is starting to appeal to me over working in some job not unlike one I could do at home. BUT I've never done something like that before, and I need to be earning money in order to survive. (Plus, I am a young female worried about obvious possible dangers.)
A friend I met here is also interested in that but faces the same money and stability issues that I do, so we are thinking of doing a trial run together for a week or so, after which, if it doesn't work out, we get our jobs in the city. Does anyone have any advice or ideas as to where we should go (not incredibly far from the Sydney area) and what type of job we could get in that short amount of time?
