Hi My names Kerry i am 20 years old. I am flying to Sydney in September 2014. Just wanted to see if anyone else was going out there around the same time?

I am going over on a works visa. Does anyone have any info about work over there?

I am travelling on my own so it would be great for any information that would help me on my travels.

Hey Kerry I'm Beca, 22 from the Uk and I am hopefully flying out in September time as well. I also will have WHV. I have just been trying gumtree and other websites but I have heard hostels post a lot of jobs.

Hey Kerry,

I should be flying out to Sydney sometime between the end of july and the start of August. I'll be on a working holiday visa as well, I think as far as work goes you can pretty much work anywhere but the most popular traveller jobs are in hospitality; bar work, waiting on etc. But there's also the option of fruit picking and other jobs that will get you an extra 12 months in Aus. I heard that the hostels have notice boards up that will have some jobs on and notices from other travellers about maybe moving on somewhere in a car share or campervan. All I've done at the moment is research hostels and worry about the work when I get there, just go with the flow. I wouldn't worry too much about it :) My advice is probably book a hostel where you want to stay, plan where you'd would like to go around Aus and then see what happens when you get there. From what I've seen there's always people looking to flat share and share transport :) Good luck!

Liam :)

I was looking to fly from Birmingham but really all I can find are flight that have two stop overs with really long connections like a nine hour one and a five hour one. So I'm going to have a look at flying from Heathrow and see if I can get a flight with shorter stopping times if possible. you?

Is it a work visa or Work Holiday Visa?

If its WHV then connect with loads of like minded people who explore australia. And if its work visa then you must be knowing under what skill category you have applied for a work visa.
