Hey Joshua,

Yeah your right i was looking today and they still have spaces for next month so that one less thing to worry about! lol

I feel loads better knowing I'm not the only one without a route plan yet!

Im not sure whether to do a 6 month or 12 month visa, next big decision to make lol

Hmmm, i would recommend the 12 month visa, because you can still leave after 6 months if you want to, but if you got a 6 month visa, you might want to stay and im not sure how you would go about extending it.

Are you planning on staying in sydney for the length of your stay or do you want to travel as much of the country as possible?

Yeah thats what I was thinking, and will probably need to work at some point anyway. Im looking to travel round, looking into going over to NZ aswell.

What about you what are your plans?

Erm well im hoping to stay for the 2 years. Also hoping to check out New Zealand, as well as Fuji and Tasmania and generally just have a great time really.

But hopefully that will be the start of many years of travel, theres loads of countries that do working holiday visas!
