Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 23 and from Scotland. I'm travelling alone to Australia in October 2013. Planning on landing in Brisbane but not set on it. Really up for meeting lots of people/travel buddies!

I have been to Australia and travelled round a bit on my own before but never worked abroad so I'm getting nervous! Would like to do harvest work for the 3 months required to get a 2nd working holiday visa. Is there anyone with similar plans??

Hey Fee :)

I'm hoping to go to Australia around that time and also want to do 3 months harvest work aswell.. would rather do it straight away so it's out of the way and then I can just travel around after!

Message me on here or add me on FB if you want - Callum Hearn :)

Hey! Any idea where you are heading first? Have you booked flights and got your visa? I have no idea which city to fly to, but Brisbane looks like a good option to get farm work in Queensland :-)

I'm also from Scotland, and soon to be 23. I'm planning on going to Australia in September, and am very keen to experience the harvesting as well, and have the option of another year. I haven't, however, looked into area's to do it in (somewhere close enough to a beach with be ideal haha).

I'll be arriving in Sydney.

Hey! Where will you be flying from out of interest?

There's a good booklet at the bottom link of this page

I'm keen to be near a beach too! looks like it might not be that easy though. Judging by the booklet, there are harvest jobs in every month somewhere, so if you're willing to move around.. I'm hoping it's relatively easy to find somewhere!

hi mate.

I'm planning the exact same as you. Work 3 months straight away and get the visa for the second year.

I've booked my flight to carins for the end of september. I talked to an australian guy at an sta presentation. Told me cairns was a great place to start and lots of farm work in northern queensland.

I'm travelling alone as well and it is very daunting!

I'll probably be leaving from Heathrow, I'm pretty keen to travel through BUNAC, as you get to spend 3 nights in Hong Kong, and then they have the option of a surf camp for the first week in Sydney which sounds amazing.

The chances are I'll be looking to work for the beginning of October!

I hadn't looked into bunac just because of the price tbh. Still got no idea where I want to start off either.
I'm originally from the highlands but living in Aberdeen at the moment, what about you?
