I am a 22yr old guy travelling to oz on a whv on the 10th Feb (arriving in Melbourne on the 12th) I am planning on starting out in Melbourne for a couple of weeks before heading to a working hostel to get my farming work done to qualify for the 2nd year whv.
Does anyone have any recommendations for hostels in Melbourne for a couple of weeks?
Any recommendations on what to fill my time in Melbourne with or should I just go with the flow when I get there?
Anyone going to Melbourne around the same sort of time?

Hey Josh! Name's Linus, and i am going to Melbourne as well in feb! I am from Sweden and i'll be going on à whv and will hopefully be there for a year or so. Got the same plans as you so it would be cool to chat about plans for when arrival day comes!
Would be cool to know some people who're in the same situation as us to give advice and talk about everything.
PM me for fb page if u'd rather chat over there!
recommendation for hostels in my opinion in melbourne would be space hotel (has movie room, bar, hot tub on roof!) or habitat in st kilda area (beach) or urban central which is southbank of melbourne.
i would suggest just going with the flow when you get here but it does depend what kind of thing that you are into, more then happy to give you some suggestions. my main focus is animals and views, so if u need help on them then no issues. I have been travelling australia for 10 months and mostly been based in melbourne.
