Hiya everyone

I'm going Sydney in October on my own, hoping to stay there until new year and then move on.
I'm not going with a package or anything so picked up some great advice off your posts on here
Could possibly meet up when you're all over? Hopefully be all set up and able to give some good advice of my own by then :) Definitely liking the thought of Bondi Beach on Christmas Day!!

I know Joanne, get me to the sunshine now!! We'll be going out in the middle of their summer too :D

Hi Jason, I'm hoping to do the agricultural work if I can cos I would like the option of the second year. Does anyone know any good websites I can look up about that? Are you going out the same time then? I get there December 1st.

Definitely want to meet some people and find somewhere to rent out there for 6 months.

Would be awsome if we could meet up in London or something before we all go out there. chat about it all and meet each other.

That would be great Katrina, could do with some pointers when I get to Sydney. Keep in touch on here.

Yeh I just booked a random return date. I booked my flights through STA travel they have a price gaurantee and they do the 60quid multi flex pass so you can change you flights up to 3 times with no additional charges.

I have booked to stay there for 5 weeks which tbf is a really long time and I hope to find a place to rent before the end of that trip, but everywhere is booked up over xmas and new years so id rather have somewhere to stay. instead of then just thinking ill sort it out when i get there and having to pay ridiculous prices for somewhere to stay over xmas and new year. - Just me being over organised lol.

Just followed you babe :)

Hey all,

I am looking to head to Australia for December to, possibley in the middle of November. Elle, I kind of want to do the same thing. My plan is to fly down and hostel until I can get a job and then find another few people who want to rent somewhere and then just work and chill and party and see a few things while working! Bondi beach sounds immense! A hot christmas compared to England = brilliant!

Just check that the flight you are looking to book has a 12 month ticket. It should be on the terms and conditions bit, if its not on there then call them to confirm.

Hey Finn, sounds like you have a very similiar idea to us. Have you booked anything yet?
