steffi.yng has indicated that this thread is about Brisbane

I will be traveling to Australia indefinitely as of February 2013...Flight booked to Brisbane but I plan to play it by ear and move around for a couple of months until I'm close to being out of money which is when I'll probably find small jobs to get me by Anyone doing anything similar? Or looking to get to know people who they might meet on the way?

I'm planning on going to to Brisbane in Feb too! I am currently a nanny in London so I'm going to do a bit of Au Pair work over there to make some extra cash so I can stay longer. What date you thinking of going?

I'm crapping myself too lol ! I've never travelled that far by myself before. I have friends out there so it won't be so bad. I'm planning to sort my job (au pair) out before I get there so I'll have a place to live as well.
How much is everyone taking with them, I'm trying to save for the next 6 months and hopefully take about £4000-5000 with me and start working almost immediately so my money will last longer.

P.S By the way if any of you are also interested in being an au pair you don't need much childcare experience to do it and there are agencies that place you with a family if you don't want to do it yourself.
