Hi Ian and DenKav

I'm also travelling to Perth arriving the first week in March. I'm going on a WHV so I hope to get a job, work for a few months and then do a bit of travelling. I have a hostel booked for the first week, should give me some time to get a place of my own. I haven't started looking for jobs yet, been looking at seek.com but really not much point in applying until I get out there.
Any luck with jobs or accommodation yourselves?

Hiys Jon104

I have booked into Perth city YHA for 12 days after I arrive, don't know what I'm going to do after that though. Think I'll just worry about work when I'm there as most people don't want to know until you are in the country. Of you haven't already then you should join the Facebook group called Australia backpackers 2013. It's a great way to chat to people & get information.

Thanks, I just joined the Facebook page, it great and really handy. Yea I agree most companies or agencies wont reply unless your in the country and when they see the working holiday visa, dont think they go too far. Same as yourself booked a hostel for the first two week, should give me enough time to find a place to stay and then focus on job-hunting.
