Hey Stef, just looked at flights, its 608 so that would be great if i could get on that with you and go out together :-) hopefully going to book my flight in the next couple of weeks, just waiting on my visa to come back and need to sell my car so going to get that up for sale asap :-) a company has been in touch with me about paying them a fee and they guarantee you work before you get out there.... not sure if to consider going down this route or not as my friends tell me who are in sydney that it is quiet hard getting work in the city... x

xdannn yeah its always raining or snowing here too, its so miserable! never been to sydney before really excited but nervous also as its like walking into the unknown lol :-)

no it wasnt it was to fly at 14.10 that was 608 quid, just looked again and the one your booked on at 9pm is 708 quid :-/ nearly 100 quid more to fly a few hours later for some reason! lol. ive just read a few reviews about that company i think its a bit of a con, i could send you information they sent me if you want? its a company called Work and travel co. gonna see if i can find same flight as you somewhere cheaper xx

I wouldn't recommended the company because they may not always find the jobs you might be willing to do. I think you’re better off printing off a few CV and pounding the pavements and handing them to the stores.
You can find a lot of shops on Gumtree & Seek and also the hostels usually have a notice board advertising jobs.

With regards to setting up bank accounts, getting the Medicare card & tax file numbers I’ve got all the links for them..

Let me know if you want them, I can e-mail them both to you :)
