From what you guys have been saying and from doing a bit more research I'm considering starting in Brisbane now. Can always move down the coast if I don't like it and go to Melbourne or Sydney.

I imagine there's a big influx of backpackers around Oct/Nov when it starts getting hot again so I'd like to get to the bigger cities earlier than that because I guess there's not so much comptition for jobs that way.

The only thing I know for definite that I want to try is skydiving whilst I'm out there! I've always wanted to try it and am feeling advenurous so why not do it now!

I just want to go there now! I've been looking forward to handing my notice in at work for months!!

Just to thow in my two cents....I'm looking to land in Oz mid August time. (Have the visa sorted, just need to save some money and book the flights) From what i've been told from talking to friends that have already been yo Oz is to do the travelling 1st, before heading into Sydney/Melbourne.

What im thinking is to start in Cairns and work my way down to Meblourne possibly on to Perth after (depending on time/work/money)...Jobs are supposed to be handy enough to find, again from who iv been told and what iv seen on other fourms, alot of places hire on the spot and some hostels provide a bed and food in return for a few hours work...
