Hey people sorry for the late reply.
Chelle thanks a lot for your help. I'll take all that on board.
Only got one question and that about getting the working holiday visa. There seems to be loads of places to get them but I'm not sure which would be the right one if you get me.
I've answered about the only place you should get your WHV from on your other thread. For the benefit of anyone else, you should only get a WHV from the official immigration website (known as DIAC), and the section on the WHV can be found here. Generally there's no need to pay extra to a company for what you can do yourself!
Taken me ages to get back to travellerspoint! Sorry!!
Personally i did my first working holiday visa with visa bureau because they give you a australian sim card & discount card for couple of free nights in hostel. but overall didnt really achieve must by using that company over doing it yourself other then peace of mind. So guess it really does come down on the individual.
I just tried to find you on facebook and theres a few of you! Sorry only just checked this forum again! So useless! My thing at the moment is I want to go to Sydney for new year and looking into hostels but dont know what the best one is and theres something stopping me from clicking book and I know I need to do it now before it gets full!!
If you can add me my details are:
