Hi, I'm 22 soon to be 23... Looking to go over to Oz beginning of September 2011. I will be travelling alone which is a bit nerve wracking... I also want to visit Thailand Laos Cambodia Vietnam etc at some point during my trip.. Not sure how long I plan on travelling for just see how it goes... Xmas & New Year in Oz is definitely on the cards though.. Anyone else's plans similar to mine??

Hey guys,
I am from Australia, and its a good place to visit. You just have to be prepared when it gets really warm, especially in summer (Dec, January, Feb) but it will keep on going in the heat. It gets up to 40 degrees Celsius.
Getting work in Australia isn't to bad when you are in the bigger cities, like Melbourne, Sydney etc. Its a lot more expensive in those parts. I suggest you look at staying in the outskirts of the major cities, that way its not to expensive and you can still go into the inner city for shopping, clubbing etc.
Also you may find the slang hard to understand but you will get there eventually and don't be afraid to ask.
Cheers

P.S
But in saying that (about the major cities) stay in the country towns as well because they are great and you get a more Australian vibe from people that live there. We aren't like those that live in the city. ( I am from a country town)

Cheers H

Hi everyone

I'm Sarah 24 from Somerset, Im flying out to Singapore on 10th September then planning on travelling round Malaysia for a month or so on my own. Possibly thinking of visiting Bali before heading over to Oz in October.

I'm thinking of starting up the top in Cairns and working down the east coast for about 3 months with a view to being around Sydney or Melbourne for xmas and new year

After that I'm hoping to go over to NZ on a WHV

Anyone doing something similar and wants to hook up let me know! I'm Sarah Clinker on fb (only one of me lol)

Cheers x
