Sorry for the slightly off topic post but how did these people get into Australia on a working holiday visa on very little money? Dont you need at least $5000 as a bare minimum requirement?

In practice, no one actually checks up on that. (You still need that much money in reality, despite anecdotes about a few extremely lucky and hardy souls like the girl mentioned in comment 8; most people who travel to Australia with less money will end up having to return home much earlier than they'd like, simply because money will have run out.)

Thank you for your reply. I was wondering how they would check up on your accounts but have read about people being denied entry because of lack of funds. I plan to have the required money as back up anyway. Getting a bank loan for this. Will worry about the debt when i return . You only live once after all :)

Wow, thanks every one some really great suggestions and ideas some which im massively interested in!

Its comforting to know that people can do it on less as well! I heard stories of friends going out to Greece with £200 and getting a job and working there till end of season!

if any one knows of any good websites that advertise just standard bar jobs or anything like that who want people like travellers to work massive help or any one on here have any friends in different places would be great!

i would love to hear some stories of people on here who may have jetted of with little money as well!?

Hmm... really depends whether you want to work the summer in a bar / resort... or head off and do some proper travelling.

Plenty of people head to European beach resorts (Spain, Greece etc) with hardly any money and end up staying for the season. Try and save up one month's rent so you give yourself a bit of a head start.

Oh, and if you plan on heading to a popular place, make sure you get there EARLY! For example, most bars in Ibiza start recruiting around 1st May.
