Hey Viki I'm leaving for Australia on the 1st with a one way ticket! Mental! Going to Sydney first to see family and travel but will be in Perth by feb as I have a job lined up! But the job has a flexible start date so i dont intend to start until i feel like it. travelling that area would be great! I need friends so would be great to make your acquaintance :) haa

Hi people,
I land in Perth on 4th December, staying with a mate for a few days, then getting a hostel.. Gonna deliver campervans to different states after that to get over to the east side (www.coseats.com) then travelling down, or up.. need to go over to New Zealand Fab/March time.. back to Australia for the Melbourne Grand prix in March.. Bit more of the east coast & returning to Perth in May to fly home! :(
Would be great to meet up with some peoples to visit the rest of Aus with, my mates works there so cant come on the road trip of road trips! Thats only a rough plan mind, will probs all change once I get there! haha

Nono not got a job there! You just apply for it I think, looking at their terms and conditions anyway.. i'll give them a ring tomorrow :) Perth City YHA is a good hostel I think, $35 a night in a 4 man/woman dorm
