Kelly I've not got a fully sorted plan yet, I've thought about maybe starting in Darwin and working down the coast ? Also have any of you two thought about going anywhere else whilst your there ? New Zealand maybe or visiting Thailand as for the odd week?
Tayla have you got a specified job in mind? I'm gonna be working just not sure what really aha

Hi Tom,

Sometimes thats the best way to do it by not planning anything :-) Erm I will probably start with fruit picking as after 3 months of doing the fruit picking I will be eligable for my 2nd year WHV and then not sure, am quite happy to do anything really as long as I can still travel around.

Yeh I plan on going to NZ after a year in Aus but not really thought much about what im going to do there yet. Basic plan is to hopefully work my way around for a year maybe but will def have to go and see where they films the films Lord of the rings and hobbit while im there :-)

Are you thinking of going anywhere else other than Aus?

I didn't know fruit picking got you another year ? I thought it had to be something like rural construction or something ? Yeah I've thought about NZ as you can get 23 month visa straight away which is easier , this might be a stupid question but how much stuff are you taking like you just going round with a backpack ?
