It depends how long you're staying (and I presume you're going to Oz). The first time I went to Oz I spent about 800 pounds per month. I did quite a few tours but not that many activities, and it did include a fair amount of booze money, so adjust your spending money accordingly depending on how much you plan to do.

However, I went back with my mate last year and he spent an absolute fortune compared to me, so it also depends how good you are with money in general.

Hi Jadie,

I am off to oz for a year in july with the work travel companies, you first, package. When are you going and are you going on one of their group flights? I was hoping to stay in sydney for a few months whilst working and like you are hoping that some will sponsor me in the end so I can stay. Fingers crossed. Are you on msn? maybe we could have a chat about your plans and meet up whilst out there.

caz :)
