I'm not sure weather to go straight to oz or stop over in Thailand for a few weeks I've planed nothing yet just been looking at flight prices and insurace and trying to find the cheapest visa its mad lol excited and nervous but can't wait saving like mad added u as a friend anyway

Yeh I've had a look at visas the cheapest a can find is £249 for the year. Yeah I'd quite like to start with Thialand and do NZ and figi after Australia but its just what I can afford really. Soo see if u have a contract phone here just now would you be continuing that or leaving that and using a oz sim. xx

Not sure probably cheaper to buy a phone when u get to oz really! Thailand's supposed to be really cheap ! To much to think about ain't it Haha

Well my mate is travelling over there at the mo n she seems to think she got hers for £110! God knows how! A guy ive been chatting to on here said the best place is the australian government website! Apparently jobs are easy to get in perth but thats all i know. Dont think i fancy the whole fruit picking malarky. Read someones blog about their time doing it and sounds like to much hard work for what you get paid. Then again i guess if u need a job n its only thing goin you cant really turn it down! Im paying off my contract nxt mth even tho it doesnt run out til oct! But i dunno if i should take my iphone n get an aussie sim or get a cheap mobi over there! x

There's only one place you should look to get the WHV: the official department of immigration website. Any other service will also have to get your visa there, and will charge you for the "privilege".
The current WHV cost is AUD $270, which works out to £185 according to their currency converter.
