Hi, I'm also traveling on my own pretty much for the first time (I did study abroad in Northern Ireland during college, but I don't know if that counts as much!). I land in Sydney on December 7th. Already arranged visa and flights and have booked an UltimateOz intro pack. Everyone here sounds in similar situations, so it would be great to talk and meet people to hang out and travel with!
I am just taking a year out before uni and also planning on travelling and working in Australia, just booked my ticket for the 1st of November so it is final now!! I haven't applied for my WHV yet and I was just wandering how long it took for yours to come through (those of you who already have it). I am thinking of trying to work in Port Macquarie for November and December then getting a Grey Hound bus ticket from Sydney to Cairns and go with the flow!!
Can't wait to get out there now!! haha. Has anyone else considered the Grey Hound ticket?
I'm going to Perth on the 8th of October and I got my WHV back in June and it only took TWO HOURS to get it after I'd applied I was amazed
