Hey! Im travelling to Australia with a new travelling buddy (friend of a friend) so exciting meeting people on the same wave length! A couple of my friends who have done Oz say, as soon as you land in Australia people want to get to know you and help you out. Were heading for Perth 25th May...stopping in Bangkok for couple days before hand....then travelling East when in Oz. Same as yourself, with the working visa and planning to do the farm work first. Have you checked the Harvest guide, theres a link through the Australian gov website. My friend has contacted future employers, but they can't promise you work until your their in Oz.

We only booked our flights at the weekend, doesn't feel real!? Best of luck with your flights, maybe see you out there!? :)

Hi guys,

I was just reading your thread and wanted to say don't be nervous about coming to Oz alone. I've been here for 6 months with friends, though they're about to head home and abandon me! Everyone here is really friendly and you meet people through shared accomodation and generally being out drinking.

I'm currently living in Perth and there's definately a big UK crowd here and plenty of opportunities to find work but I would stay make sure you travel to the east coast as well.

Stay in touch as I'll be travelling solo from April and looking for friends :-)

Quoting jim-d

wel,im planning on going to australia sometime around april or may,most likely alone as my friends circumstances have changed and he now cant go,ive already got my 1 year working holiday visa but have not booked a ticket yet as im a little nervous about the taughts of goin over alone and just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as myself or has done it before?

I'm heading to Perth in May...Very nervous about flying alone but think it will be worth it! I have an uncle and a couple of friends in Perth so at least I won't be totally alone when I land. It's just the getting there bit to worry about. Have you booked your ticket yet?
