Hi Everyone.

I have recently decided to travel to Australia for 6 months with the intention to spend 3 months working whilst 3 enjoying what it has to offer. I am completely new at this and the prospect seems daunting! I need some help as to were I could go, what I need to do before traveling and what I can expect when out there!

I currently reside in London and hope to travel in December 2013 at the height of summer season. I am 22 years old.

In a completely ideal world, my plan would be to travel early December, look for a basic part-time job when i arrive, (bar work, shop worker etc) ,enjoy the weather and lifestyle, party hard, come home!

I hold a good job in London which pays very generously however I just fancy a short change in my life before I become to old to regret not venturing out!

Look forward to any helpful response!

Thank you

Ultimateoz looks like a good company to help you get started out. I've been looking in to it and posted on a few other threads on here to try and find out more. If I get some feedback I'll let you know!
