Anyone else heading out to sydeny at the start of october? Im going by myself but have signed up for a programme for the first two weeks. Where I will be staying in a hostel near bondi beach and get help finding a job.

I did what you are doing a couple of years ago. I too found myself in Sydney on my own as a 22year old girl and believe me you will make so many friends in the hostels you will have lots of people to party and work with. Make sure you stay in a dorm of at least 4 or more people as they you have no choice but to mingle. Single bed rooms are more expencive and you wont get the full hostle experience! Enjoy! x

Hey Victoria.
Nice to hear from you. Where abouts are you from?

I have actually just cancelled the programme i was going with. i have done alot of research over the last couple of weeks and what its offering although its pretty great its a total rip off. i have found another programme that is more in my price range and it offers even more. such as free internet all year round. travellers discount card etc. its been praised alot whereas the programme i first thought about going on had very mixed reviews (pretty much saying its not worth the money- was nearly a grand that was ozforce) whereas this one is under 400 think it works out to be 375 its called the 7 night ulimate oz experience.

I have looked at the package STA has and it does look good however the one ive just mentioned seems more appealing and you seem to get more. maybe have a read about it.

Havent booked my flights yet but i will be going through STA for sure been quoted some pretty good deals from an open return. I really want to explore melbourne heard amazing things about it. How long u wanting to stay out there for?xx

No i haven't booked yet, but i have decided i am using that service. Compared to seems of the other i have been looking at it seems reasonably priced and has the best trips.

Yea I'm thinking about around that time, but ive got to work around handing in notice at work and ive got to go on a family holiday in august. x

Lucky you! Family holiday than Oz! Yeah that package does seem really good and is at a reasonable price! I'm thinking October as it gives me time to safe but also allows me to settle in before Christmas time! How long u looking to stay out there for? You going out there by yourself?x
