I'm arriving in Sydney on 28th December and meeting a few friends, they are only around for a few months, so was hoping to find a travel buddy on here to join me?
I want to stay for at least a year if i can.. will get a job at some point too to fund more travelling! Probably in a bar, or fruit picking or both! i'm not sure yet!
anyone going around this time and want to meet up?
My name is kimberley and at the time of going i'll be 21.. i'm british and from north east england! :)

Hey, i love the idear of going to Australia for a year. Im 21.
Just a few questions, how much would it be to go? Do i need to get a work visa? And where would u be staying?

I'll be in Australia during this time, but not sure exactly where I will be, but I am going to be there for the year as well. I've heard good things about Sydney during New Years, so I need to check where I'll be working and see how it all turns out.

Well i'm probably going to be going with about £3000 which is enough for 3 months travel. but as i plan to get a job over there it'll be more than enough to keep me going.. as i plan to work and stay for at least a year.
For the first week my friends and i will be in a beach resort for new year which cost £120 each which is great, after that i/we will be staying in hostels and such, which go from approx £4 a night, also good prices!
Yes you need a visa, you get a working holida visa which lasts a year, but if you do 3 months consecutive work for the same company, you can apply for a second year visa.
If either of you would like to meet up wth me and my friends or just want to talk about going and preperations or anything drop me a message with your email addresses and ill email you

Hey Kimii and Daniellelb, check out this thread. We're trying to arrange a gathering. I know kimii already has accommodation, but we all should try to hook up.
