Hey! I'm Matthew, 25 from Wicklow, Ireland. I'm wanting to head over to Australia either in November, December or January to search for work. But I don't want to go on my own. I'm looking for someone to go over with and to share the experience with. I've got my 1 year Working Holiday Visa and I'm ready to book flights.
I would like to start out in Sydney and take it from there but I'm open to other suggestions. I also want to do the 3 months fruit picking in order to get the 2nd year Working Holiday Visa.
If anyone from Ireland is in a similar situation to me or has similar plans and is thinking of heading over around these times, please get in touch. Send me a Private Message or post on here. Cheers! :)

Hey Matt!

Im Michelle, 20 and from Ireland!
I'm landing in Melbourne on the 2nd of January with the intension of travelling the east coast for a month.
However, to be honest I'd love to go for a year! Just can't seem to find the courage to do that on my own!
So no set plans yet just open to everything and anything :)

Look forward to hearing from you :)

I'm Jonny, 26, also from Ireland and I am currrenly on the train to the airport destined for Australia (Brisbane).

While I'm not 100% sure what my plans are yet, I do know that I'm going to be in Sydney for the two weeks over Christmas and New Year. I'll also be traveling along the east coast - heading north to Cairns and then working my way south.
