Hi there, I'm travelling alone to Australia in October & getting slightly nervous about finding work an accommodation over there. Can anyone give any tips or advise?

Thanks, Verity x :)

Try OZ Intro?? I'm not doing this myself but it's good for solo travellers I've been told..

Hi Verity,

I am also traveling to Oz by myself, I get there late October. I am also very nervous about finding housing and work while there (as well as meeting people, as I am going alone!). I am wanting to start off in Sydney and work there for a couple months at least. I have looked at both the Ultimate Oz arrival packages as well as the OZ Intro one. They both seem to be cool programs. As far as jobs go, both programs have job support (think CV help and a list of job openings) but every bit helps. I have also heard that it is not worth joining the companies that help you find jobs as you can do it all yourself for free. For housing, gumtree seems to be the place to find short term room and flat shares.
