Hey everyone,
My name is Helen I am 22, from Worcester, UK. I really want to go travelling in Australia I have started my application for a working holiday visa. I was thinking about going in the next couple of months. Don't really want to go by myself not looking forward to the flight! any other solo travellers heading to OZ in the next couple of months. I don't really have any set plans on where to go just want to work/ travel!

I did the whole work and travel in Oz last year and it was AMAZING. I know its scary and so in the beginning but trust me, you WILL find somebody as soon as you get to the hostel. Espescially if you're going with a company, so dont worry :) I def recomend it, best time ever!!! So jealous.

brilliant! I don't have facebook at the moment, the visa is more expensive than I expected so I'm gonna have to work a bit more to save :( but still want to go this year! when I book my flight I will message you to see where your at.
Thanks for getting back to me

hi helen!
I don't really have any set plans at all, When I get there I was gonna chill out for a week then I will need to get a job pronto...was thinking fruit picking/farm work. Do that for a couple of months and save some money then go off travelling for a bit. I don't want to make to many plans until I get there... have you done any travelling before?

Hi I am going to Sydney alone in October. I've heard its very expensive so I'm planning on working whilst there. I want to stay there until the new year and then travel up the coast to cairns over a few months. Maybe buy or hire a campervan if it's not to expensive.
