Hey guys, did you get a one way ticket or a return ticket?

I'm hopefully gonna be going out there in November but worried I won't have a great deal of money to start off with, hoping for around £3500 maybe a bit under

Are you guys gonna stick to Sydney?

Yep can't wait! I have a years whv but hoping to get a second year or sponsorship ! I only bought a one way ticket for that reason as returns or multi stops only last a year usually.
Have u been out before?

Dale I'm planning on travelling around for the first four - five months then settling in Sydney for work ( I have close family and friends in that area)

I'm hoping to take around 7000 only because I'm traveling first if u r prepared to work etc from arrival-ish then that should be fine depending on what activities u want to do , eating out drinking etc

Alright everyone

Dale i have just bought a 1 way ticket not sure about staying with it or upgrading it. As far as your funds i would agree that if you plan on working shortly after arrivel you should be fine.

Dann89 i am starting off in perth but might be in sydney for the christmas and new year party's so might see you there.

Robert367 When are you arriving in perth will you be working straight away or doing a bit of travelling around first?.

Will be in Sydney first and will be there until after the New Year - i want to do Bondi and the New Year's eve fireworks etc.

Not sure what i will do afterwards, take it as life comes.

Very excited!!!
