Hey dan I've added you on Facebook as its easier to talk than this. Which hostel are you staying in and what are your dates? We could arrange an initial get together for early on so we feel safer!

Hi Daniele1272

Where else are you planning on going? How much are you planning to save for your WHV?

there is nothing that says you 100% need $5000 the sum is calculated on a person by person basis and you would be fine with $3000 plus if they did actually check you but as iv heard they very rarely check anyone. i and a few friends have been in and out of aus and none of us have been checked i did a lot of research in to it when i was heading out but couldn't find much about not having it or not having the full 5k but what i did find almost always pointed to them not really ever looking for it also as i understand it if they where to send you back they would have to pay for your return flight.

Hi All,
I am travelling on the 27th dec to be in sydney for new years eve! i have no real solid plans except i would like a job asap! i should have saved enough money but just to be on the safe side. I also have had alot of friends go with very little money and not been checked!

Hi, Im in the Nomads Western backpackers hostel for xmas and New Year. After that I have no plans but it probably makes sense to head North and see the sights up the coast and then I would like to drive/fly back down depending who I meet and what work I get. Money is worry but I think everyone is in the same boat and everyone seems to survive! The link to my facebook is on my profile is anyone wants to pm me :)
