Hey, Im a 25 yr old lad and Im headin to oz in june probably the 13th alone.thinking of flying to adelaide first as south australia is one of the states that you can do your 3months specified work in,so I can extend my visa to 2yrs!
but after Iv done that Im free to roam and will probably head up the east coast surfing and maybe head to the west if i get the opportunity.

Has anyone been to adelaide?if so was it good?what was it like for work and could you recommend anywhere to stay/not to stay?or avoid?

And if anyones heading out the same time and there looking for some one to meet up with or tavell with then just give me a shout especially if your a fellow surfer or want to be!

Adelaide is a fairly quiet city so don't expect to go out partying every night. I found it a good place to recuperate after travelling through the centre of Australia, there are some nice beachs around and some great fishing. Work should be ok as it's the biggest city in South Australia, but it will depend on what you're planning on doing.

Have fun, SA is a beautiful place.
