Hey i fly out to brisbane in 2 weeks (eek!!) to stay with family for a month or so and then planning to head to adelaide in september for fruit picking work for a while, earn some cash before xmas really. Anyone else heading that way or wanna meet up in adelaide? its my first whv on my lonesome so would be great to meet some fun people to travel there or meet up with?
I trust you have a work visa. Australian customs literally put people on the next plane home if they plan to work there on a normal tourist visa.
Some advice on fruit picking:
I was not greatly impressed with Brisbane. The Gold Coast a little way south is a lot better.
Accommodation, try hostelbookers.
Cyberia: Holly specifically said "whv" in her post. (Working Holiday Visa; a concept which you really should be familiar with, given that 90% of the posts in this forum are related to it.) Could you please just stop the scaremongering?
Jeeze ive read Ciberias posts in other threads too. Yes i have a whv and i know about fruit picking and accomodation having been there on holiday alot over the last few years, its just my first time on a WORKING holiday...
