I'm a 28 year old Canadian male flying into Sydney in November for 4 months.
My plans are to just go with the flow, travel up the coast, grab a job here and there, meet new people, and visit a few friends in Melbourne and Sydney.

Now I will be traveling with my sister for the first two weeks, then she will head back to Canada on Nov 19th. So after that I'll be on my own, so I'll down for anything.

So if anyone is looking for a travel partner after Nov 19th, give me a shout!

just wundering have you got a years visa? and, why only 4 months? you cant see alot in 4 months specially if you got to work as wel

I do have my work visa. The 4 months is a rough estimate on what I can live off of with what I currently have saved. If I can find a job where I can make money so I can prolong my trip, then I will change my return flight and stay.

So I guess the length of my stay will be determined by how much money I have till I'm broke. I've been told, backpacking in Oz can be pretty expensive.

Hey Gavin,

I have yet to book any accommodations when I get here but I've heard good things about Wake Up. So I'm thinking of booking there when I get in Sydney on Nov 5th.
Have you booked anywhere yet?
