Hi Elle

Who did you book your flight with ? I have a quote with Air China I think for about £970 that is returning in March 2013

Hi Andy,

As I just put in my essay I did it through STA travel. I think the airline is Cathay Pacific. 830pounds, with the return in February. I booked mine about a month ago. I stop in Hong Kong. So I think they must be a chinese airline too.

Im quite happy to go with the flow and see how it goes but ideally I want to see as much as possible. Brisbane is amazing....deffo on my hit-list! Oh and you have to get yourself to Cairns, was without a doubt the best place I visited.

Just waiting on my passport which should be here in a few days then with all being well ill have the visa by the end of the month!

Will probably scream once I get it lol x

I'm flying from Heathrow, it would probably be cheaper than Manchester.

You only get one working visa in your life so might aswell make the most of it and stay the whole year!! :D

Same! I'm getting all excited already. I'm obsessed with all the Oz programs like nothing to declare and wanted down under, obv Home and Away and Neighbours aswell lol.

Quoting Elle11

Yeh possibly see you out there Andy.

I'm also around Sydney at that time. Think I'm going to set up camp there for a while. Plan is probably to get a job and rent somewhere for 6 months. Is anyone else planning on doing that sort of thing?

Hey Ellie,

think we're gona try and find digs after new year in sydney too. will work out so much cheaper than sticking it out in hostels!
you going to do agricultural work to get 2nd year visa? definately on our list of must do's!
