You'd be surprised that Australia is pretty easy to live in money wise, I mean nowhere in comparison to Asia but compared to Europe/U.K.
5000 pounds saved as well as working and you'll be laughing.
Aussies that travel through Europe take considerably less than that and get by for a few months without earning even a little bit of income.
robbo you're a god send! i'm going to oz in september after travelling in asia and only have £5000 to take (working in oz when i get there). i was getting worried reading everyone elses post taking 8k or more. thanks for putting my mind at ease.
hey guys im going to oz in may for a month how much money do you think i need i am looking at £1,500-£1,800 what you think
hey guys i'm in oz at the moment for a working holiday! i came over in November and i took the minimum amount of 2 grand lol....bad choice!! i spent it all within the first month and had nothing to show for it, except nights i'll never remember haha, luckily my boyfriend got here in december and i was saved!!
i must say though it was pretty hard for us to find work, especially with the current economic climate. so the more money you have saved the better oh and you dont actually need to do 3 months fruit picking for your 2nd year visa, i'm sure there's some loop hole to do with agricultural work that means 3 construction work also makes you eligible for it of course you could always just pay a farmer lol!!

It's now called "specified work" rather than "seasonal work" that you have to do, which also needs to be done within a regional postcode. Links from immigration website:
