My current plan is to be in Auz for 6 months, spending from October to December in Melbourne (to primarily work). However after hearing it can be a bit difficult to find a job and deciding the credit card won't mind a bit more money on it I am thinking of moving away from Melbourne in November.

Do I go to inland Auz, or fly to somewhere in SE Asia? SE Asia really takes my appeal but money may be an issue (also may be doing that bit alone so ideally find other people to go with). I'm already visiting Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam so they're written off. I would have liked to have done Laos but is it possible just from Auz?

What would you do, on a budget, possibly on your own. A tour would be cool but again its more pennies. For around a month or less.

I did a very similar thing last year when i was over in Oz, i followed a few sporting events for 2 months round australia, whilst taking in alot of the east coast, but i wanted to break my 6 month stint out there up into '2 halfs' so to speak ...

So i flew out to Indonesia, namely Bali for 5 weeks - (yeah i had a few visa issues upon leaving) ... Anyhoo i explored Bali, the Gili Ilse, Lombok and the southern tip of Java, utterly amazing!!

I say make full use of your multi entry working holiday visa ... are a great budget airline that run to and from Bali ... well worth thinking about!

Have fun bro!

I would thoroughly recommend a flight from Sydney to Fiji. Just incredibly wonderful and the swimming and beaches? None like it anywhere else in the world.
