Hey guys,

Just thought I would join this convo, I am flying out to Sydney on 10th May. Planning on working for a few months as it will be winter and then doing the travelling through the summer, also going alone. Anybody else booked theirs yet???

Hey Nicky!

Hey Nicky,

Hi guys!

Im planning to maybe stay in sydney for a week or so, are you guys using one of the programmes that sets you up out there or just sorting it all yourself? I was looking at a programme through STA which i think puts you up in the Goodday backpackers hostel which is meant to be a good one!

Have you guys booked anything yet? would be great to meet up with you guys if your there at the same time!

P.s excited!!!

Hello all!

I'm heading solo to Sydney in September on a work holiday visa after I finish up my post-graduation summer at home. Thinking about Melbourne as of now... I hear Sydney is quite costly in terms of wages:cost of living ratio. I have a communications degree but I would love to counter my girly lifestyle and do some manual labor for once.. haha. New to this website but quite informative thus far!

Happy travels :) !!!

I will be in this area, travelling alone, from 2nd June to 22nd July. Hoping to go up to barrier reef around 6th June to spend a week and do some snorkelling. I hope to be able to couchsurf to keep costs down. I've also got 2 weeks organised through working in exchange for accommodation and food. Happy to meet up if our plans allow. Norma
