Hey everyone.

Im 22, M and i have just been offered a Sabbatical from work for 12 months!! i'm planning on travelling out to Oz in March on a whv on my own. Thinking of starting in Perth first as i have some relatives to set me up while i find my feet, im looking to get some work then basically go and travel the whole east coast etc. Just seeing if anybody will be out there at a similar time and is looking to do a similar type of thing? would be cool to meet some people who are interested in the same thing.

Let me know.

Alright mate, I'm doing pretty much the same as that. I land in Perth on 21st feb, I'm staying over the west for a few months working & then heading to cairns around July time & then down the east coast to Sydney for New Years. When in march are you thinking of going?

Alright mate.
I'm Flying out on the 27th of February but i will be having a week in Dubai! then flying out to Perth on the 6th of march, pretty much planning on doing the exact same thing as you... working for a few months then planning to travel around! where about's in Perth are you staying?

Dubai would be cool but very expensive I would imagine, make sure you save some cash for oz lol. I've booked 12 nights in Perth city YHA, reviews look good so hopefully it will be ok. You booked anywhere yet?

yeah luckily enough my Dad is based there for work at the moment so accommodation is free!
hopefully will save enough cash for oz though!lol.

ahh cool man sounds good! i was looking there for future reference but im quite lucky as my Auntie lives in mandurah and said its ok for me to stay with her while i find my feet/look for jobs and plan my travels.

Ill have to give you a shout when i land and see how you been getting on!?

Lucky you! Nice free holiday in Dubai!

That's good, at least you get somewhere to set yourself up & decide what to do. It's a bit south of Perth centre though isn't it? I'd be worried it would be harder to find work and meet people staying out of the centre.

Yea mate drop us a message when you get out there & we'll hook up for a beer or sumat. I seen you posted on the Facebook group asking people if they're going to Perth. There's not many people going to the west on that group to be honest. I'm Denny Kavanagh on there, MSG me on there when you get out there if its easier.

yeah mate exactly.

that's it. just hoping to find my feet and meet/see some family for a few weeks. im then planning on moving into the city center to find work,meet more people and find a place to stay.
yeah sounds good!.. ill have to drop you a message on here or via facebook. not long now!.

Yea sounds like a plan mate. I have family just west of Perth that I will spend some time with in the first few days & then try to get set up with work. Hopefully it won't be too hard to find work that qualifies for 2nd year visa too far out of Perth. Less than 2 weeks for me now, it's getting so close but still doesn't seem real. You all sorted to go now?

9. Posted by Jason_B (Budding Member 11 posts) 4y

Quality, so you also have the luxury of setting yourself up and having a place to stay before planning your travels!

yeah fingers crossed it wont be too difficult, just have to see whats around when we get out there. yeah i know just over 3 weeks for me... cant wait to be honest! just to experience something totally different.

yes mate pretty much all sorted now, just need to do my tax file number and sort out a bank account and im all done!. what about you?

where you thinking of staying when you move into the city center?

Hey guys sorry to jump into the conversation, I am also going to be Perth around then. Flying in end of Feb/early March. Staying with family for the first week as well.

Then hopefully find some work, travel a bit. Let me know if you have any plans.
