I spent ages pondering this same question! Decided to start in Cairns as i'll be arriving sometime june-aug next year so it'll be the oz winter!
Was going to book the STA working hol package for Cairns so I get a bit of help when I arrive but am not paying the hefty price some companies charge for intro packages!
'TrentinOz' - was your Sydney package really bad, not just because of the hostel?
Its really nice reading that so many people in same boat!
I fly out on 9th Oct and am soooo excited and nervous at the same time!
I actually booked first couple of nites at Wake up in Sydney as thought best area for getting sorted work wise?
By the look of it most people go with the flow?
Bank account wise - are most of u guys just going to use your own bank accounts from home? Or taking cash? Or nationwide...as i get told diff things!
I decided Im gonna do it all my self rather than do a pckage thing. Im still trying to decide where I want to go. I havent really figured anything else out. I keep being told different thing about nearly everything. I have no idea what im gonna do about money. Im planning to go for at least four months so dont think an account will be worth it. Im still saving for the trip so havent decided on anything for definate!
Hi Steph, and also Hi Tracey!
I'm planning to come out for June next year, and was thinking I'd just work in Sydney while the weather picks up, although I'm interested in your comment Tracey about starting in Cairns instead! Are you going to work, or just travel down the coast! Hmmm, something to think about for sure!
Would love to chat to both of you about planning our trips! xx
