My name is Kim and I am from a small town in North East Lincolnshire, England and all I dream of is getting out and seeing the world.

My all time dream is to go to Australia on a working holiday visa which I'm planning on doing next January.

So I would love to hear from people from people who have already travelled to Australia for some much needed advice, especially on where are the most popular destinations to pick up casual work.

In fact even if you haven't been to Australia I'd would appreciate any travelling advice.

Hi Kim, welcome to TP. Hope you find the forums useful.

I'm sure you will have a great time in Australia - I went there alone and loved it but I was only travelling so I'm not sure about the best places for casual work. Perhaps you could post up on the Australia/New Zealand forum and I'm sure you'll get a response. :)

Hey Kim,

A friend and I will be arriving in Australia late december 2009 and are planning on working/travelling there for a few months. We have found plenty of information on working, try som e google searchs on fruit picking etc. There are also a number of work/travel specialist hostels in sydney that will help you find work.

Fingers crossed things will all come together when we arrive, although it will be hectic over christmas.
Stay ion touch and maybe we could help each other out
