Im going to Australia alone in feb and plan to start off in Sydney to look for work. Does anyone have advice on which part of Sydney to stay in or the name of any good hostels to start off in?

Also is anyone else arriving around the same time as me and would like to meet up?

Well I was planning for a Holiday work visa however Australian Govt doesn't have a Pact with our Govt for Work during holiday...

I have my relatives living at NSW, Australia. Lemme know if you need any help.

I'm going to Sydney in January, if I'm still there when you get there I'd be happy to meet up. I'm staying at wake up hostel, which looks pretty cool!

Hey Sarah,

I'm going to Sydney the end of January - i've heard wake me up is a really good hostel!
I'm going on my own too so would be good to meet up! How long do you plan on staying in Sydney?

Hi Sarah, I'm planning on heading to Sydney mid February (anytime between 17th-22nd) and have the same plans as Alex (above!) only I'm not staying as long and just for 6 weeks. I won't be working whilst I'm there. x

Hi guys,

I am going to Oz (Sydney) solo and dont know anybody there. I am planning to stay around Sydney for 8-9 days and then take a trip to Cairns and maybe another trip for 3-4 days. I have not really planned anything and have no booked anything, but seems like wake up hostel is the place to be. I should be getting a sim card for oz next week and maybe we can exchange numbers or something....or arrange to meet over there for a drink...I am a bit scared of a thought going there on my own now to be honest..But I know it will be great and I really need to do this for myself...get out of comfort zone for few weeks and see how I feel...

Hi everyone

I am also going to Sydney and land at the end of feb. I am going on my own too, I was thinking of doing the oz intro as I don't know anyone so thought it would be a good start. If anyone is interested in meeting up while we are there for a few wines as Katie said lol would be good. I haven't got any plans which is totally new for me. Would be nice to hear from someone that is doing the same sort of thing
