Hiya, haven't spoken here before but I'm sticking my fat nose in (: Have you guys looked into any of the RealGap type things where they help you out finding a job etc? I'm looking to go out late October for a year on a WHV but I reckon being 18, female, and travelling alone I would be kinda dumb just to turn up with no plan... although it does sound more exciting but ahhh.

I'm actually doing a real gap sort of thing when I get there for 10 days but over than that I have no plans what so ever :)

Hi guys,
I'm going to Sydney in Sept, thinking about the 12th cos I want to go on the Ultimate Oz tour (starting monday 16th).
Going solo and really scared, but I know I want to do it so just have to get over my nerves and go. lol. It would be really lush to meet and chat to other travellers, maybe fly over together?
anyway, feel free to add on FB!

I am landing in Sydney on the 11th of September, I am also going it alone and a lot of people have said i'm brave too. i'm excited and nervous. if any one wants to meet up in Sydney give me a shout. i have booked into a hostel and see how it goes from there. i don't really have any plans but would like to be in Sydney for Xmas and NYE. i have a few people there who are quiet settled but i want to meet people in the same position as me.

Message me if ye want to chat

Shauna xx

Hey Tom, are you looking to stay in Sydney? Because that's around the time I think I'm getting there, where are you looking to stay?

Just a quick tip guys, but maybe you should look into the work regulations in Sydney/Australia? I think for temporary positions (like for a month or something), I think you should be fine...but I think positions lasting longer than a few months may require some paperwork. It all depends on how much you make etc etc. I hope you all have a safe, wonderful, and memorable trip :)
