I'm thinking about going travelling to Australia this year. I have a load of money saved ready
So I just need to sort the other stuff.

And need to make a proper plan. Just want to get a feel of other peoples plans and ideas
For what they wanna do. And possibly chat to them.

And if I like it all. And sounds good and if theres enough time possible sort out all my Working
Holiday Visa etc etc

Hi Matt

Im travelling to oz in april but im stopping in hong kong for a few days as it was included in a package from bunac :)
They pretty much sort out everything for you like a working holiday visa, travel insurance, australian bank account, skills packages for jobs in hospitality and stuff and loads of trips :) and if you want you can opt for a group flight so if your nervous about going alone (like me) you'll meet people before you land!

You can get a yha hostel membership and stay in those hostels with a discount and they're pretty much everywhere, and they also have job boards and stuff if your looking for work or an apartment.

Im pretty much gonna go with the flow and do as much as I can, definitely going to do the gold coast and potentialy head to darwin, melbourne, brisbane, maybe go to whitsunday island :) im also going to see what everyone else is up to as they might be doing something similar or even better so I could always tag along :)

Hope this helps a little

Hey All,

I am currently planning to head over to Sydney around September time this year, flying out from Dublin Ireland on a 12 months WHV.

Think I would like to get there and find somewhere to live pretty much asap then get myself a job for maybe the first 6 months to try and save a bit of money then plan to eventually go travelling after that.

So far I will be going solo, so if anyone has similar plans to go to Sydney (as I will be looking to share an apartment when I arrive in Sydney city if possible) give me a shout and we can have a chat.

I have Googled all the information I need to know before going, my visa can be through within 48hours so just need to get flights booked next and I'm pretty much sorted!

Extremely nervous about going alone but very excited for my new adventure too :)

Hope you all enjoy your trip anyway :)

Feel free to contact me,

Hiya gemma :)

Im a first time traveller and found bunac really helpfull in telling me all the things I needed to get sorted before I go, and because im going alone I found bunac good as they offer a group flight to australia. That gave me some confidence because I will be travelling with like minded people in the same situation I am in. Definitely something to look into
