Yeah that sounds like something similar to me! Hopefully would get a job quick enough when I get over there! Hopefully we could end up there at the same Time n help each other out ;-)

I'm gonna have to try and find work pretty soon as i wont have a lot of money to sustain me! I dont know whats best to thinking of doing oz intro or ultimate oz purely because im going alone and hopefully other people will use them if they are in the same boat. Also they help with bank account and tax codes etc but im still not 100% sure :/ its al so confusing!

Im also struggling to decide whether to stay in sydney to look for work or fly up to the northern territories and find work for a while beore heading over to the eastcoast and travelling back down? do you have any ideas?

what kind of work are you hoping to do?

Hiya, I'm flying out to Sydney on March 4th on my own. Looking to spend a bit of time there before heading off else where. Not looking forward to flying out on my own so would be great to know so people ahead of time.

I've booked tickets etc. without an agency, I think they are extremely expensive and not always as helpful as they may seem. Doing a lot of research into Tax no. / phone / bank accounts etc. so hopefully will be ready to get it all sorted as soon as I arrive.

Planning to travel around Oz for a year, catching up with a few friends on the way round but if any of you are in Sydney in March, it would be great to get in touch. Also, I've heard from friends who have travelled Oz before that there is a large farmers market in Sydney around March/April time which is always great for work. Still looking into it though...

That farmers market sounds interesting doesn't it.... Thanks for that bit of info:-) anything to make it a little bit easier ;-)I don't reckon I'm gonna go with an agency to be honest, it's to expensive, last year I just bought my sim in Sydney airport when I landed, $50 I think. I think il just sort the bank n tax ends of it myself aswell.
