Are all the hostels really that booked up?? I'm backpacking along the east coast from Brisbane over Christmas and fancied new years in Sydney. Do you recommend I get places booked fast? I imagined I'd be able to turn up at places I wanted to stay and they'd have spaces.

Everybody wants to stay in Sydney for New Years. We generally recommend people to book accommodation for New Years before June/July, because after that the only things left are outrageously expensive or really bad. Just turning up definitely won't work - if you still find anything reasonable at this late point, I'd jump on it instantaneously. (Even Sydney's campings will be fully booked in about a month, iirc. (We had a group of travellerspoint members organizing a camping together last year. That's still something you could reasonably expect to look into and find space at, but other than that I don't give you high chances...))

My brother was out here in Oz last year and he ended up crashing at some random bloke's house in bondi that he met while he was out one night. all the hostels were booked out and he didnt think it would get that bad. i came out to australia with travellers contact point and when i got here i booked everything for chrtistmas and new year with them. Can't wait for it, i am almost back in sydney now and am about to start work and save up for a massive xmas and ny down under.

My advice is get booking those hostels now else you'll be sleeping on the beach.
