i havent got any plans really all i got told was cairns was a good place to start were most people actually start from and the other thing was because ive always wanted to do the barrier reef i think im going to book my flights etc next month and also a hostel in sydney as i have also been told by a few people they do get booked up quick and i dont really want to miss out.
add me on facebook and ill keep in touch were im going times etc chris bennion
Yeah I imagine it will do!
Need to work out what I'm goin to do
where are u staying Suzi?
I looked at Wake Up as that's meant to be cool.
Bit pricey tho x
Hey Jo I've booked into wake up hostel, yes it's huge, but I'm going alone so need to make alot if friends lol!!!
Hey - I leave in 7 weeks for Thailand then check into the Wake Up in Sydney 2 weeks later. Some people like the fact it's big others don't from what I have read, but guess everyone is different. I'm taking about £5000 and have a 1 year working visa xx

Thanks for the advise x
Don't get me wrong Wake Up is okay .. but the rooms are so cramped. HI (Hostelling International) you should be able to google them. The kitchen @ the rail station is awesome, but Central has a pool on the roof. It is about the same price as Wake up, and they are a big as wake up, but much more space in your room and adequate lockers. And the downside to 790 was that there is one elevator for 7 floors. All of these places have job postings on a bulletin too, and all normal hostel amenities. Oh ... for HI, if you are not a member is an extra $3 a day. If you went with WTC or Bunac .. you are a member automatically.
I have tried to find u on fbook but there are alot of u!!
Thailand sounds good for a couple of weeks first! May look into that
where u going in Thailand?
Is it east to find hostels too stay in in Thailand?
Thanks 4 all the advise everyone
I'm starting in Cairns in Sept and have booked the Glebe Point YHA in Sydney for Xmas/NY. Super excited!!
I'm planning to explore some of the east coast for the first 4 weeks before trying to find work. Am taking the minimum required funds - so £3000-£3500ish. Wish I could save up more before I go but have just finished paying off a pretty sizeable overdraft! Am also spending a couple of weeks in SE Asia first
Have heard Oz is expensive, hoping my money lasts long enough to have some fun until I can find a job!
Wow that sounds like A good trip :-)
have u travelled before Tracy?
Hey - I'm going to Bangkok for a few nights then down to some of the national parks and islands. I have a tour booked for the first week, the rest if the time i'm just going to explore. Where about in Oz are you heading?
wow. Sounds good.
I'd love to go to Thailand to explore....
Meant to be cheaper than oz.
Not sure whether to go there first or on the way home...
I have no concrete plans really
Would like to find a travel buddy really.
I want to be in Sydney Xmas/NY I think!
Need to do some planning!!
I can't belive it is 6 weeks on Saturday I leave!! I'm starting to panic about what to take, I mean where is the line between to much and too little? Eeek! I'm doing my RSA just now so least that something I guess haha
