Hi,

I am traveling to Oz on the 7th December with a friend and what I really want to know is how much money do most people start off with?

I have about £5k saved but don't know if this is a lot or whether most people take more or less then this?

Any answers / advice will be greatly appreciated ?

Thank you :) xxx

I am in Sydney the first few weeks after I arrive and its really expensive but I have partly put this down to the fact that it is December and NYE!!
