Hi all

I'm going to Australia with BUNAC in November and will hopefully be in Melbourne by Christmas time! I will be travelling on my own and I'll have a working holiday visa - if I can save the A$5000 needed!

I want to do a bit more travelling but want to settle in Melbourne as I've heard great things.

I have no contacts or family anywhere in Australia so going on a bit of a whim, would love to meet up with people when I'm there and even discuss things before going?

I've here 6 weeks now but living in a town about an hour from the city would love to catch up with someone who I can share my experiences so far with. Hope to hear from you soon,

Hi all,

I'm currently living and working in Melbourne; I'd love to hear from people in a similar situation.

Whether you're in Oz now or are moving later this year, drop me a private message if you would like to meet up and/ or talk about life in Melbourne!

Hi everyone,

I'm just applying for my visa now to come out and work in Oz too! I'm going to travel south east asia first but land in Melbourne 10th Dec, staying there for Christmas and then heading to Sydney for nye. After that wanted to look at maybe getting a house share and will be looking for a job. Is it easy to find people to live with out there? I don't know if I fancy staying in a hostel once I've stopped traveling and I'm working!

If anybody has any advice on getting work out there or is going to be there at the same would be good to chat !

Hi all!

I'll be coming to melbourne 1st september looking to stay in a hostel for a few weeks and maybe find some work but plans are really dependent on who i meet and where they're headed. Ideally i'd love to find someone/people with a van to drive around and explore australia. will pay halves on everything! would be great to chat with anyone else who wants to take a slow,unplanned journey through australia stopping to work when needed and going wherever takes our fancy!
