I'm 25 from Ireland and currently living in Sydney since September. Came over on a working holiday visa with a friend of mine and we had planned to work for 6 months and then go travelling. Unfortunately my friend had to go home just before Christmas so plans have changed and Im going to go do the regional work to give myself the option of staying here for a second year. Loving Sydney at the moment so hate the thoughts of leaving but it has to be done! Plus I'm looking forward to seeing more of Australia as that was always my main reason for coming here. I've seen a few places but not enough :-) Also don't know too many people here at the moment so it would be nice to meet some!

I have work up until the end of March and im looking to go pretty much when i finish so anywhere from the 27th of march onwards.

So just wondering if there is anyone in a similar situation who fancies going in Aprill with someone? I had thought of maybe heading to Queensland, Bowen direction but that's because I have a friend in Airlie Beach and thought it would be nice to know someone close by :-) But I'm open to other places and if anyone has any suggestions id love to hear them also!

Thanks :-)

Hey, Shirly!

I'm heading Melbourne way late april, with no fixed plan other than to complete regional work so I can stay, like every one else I guess! I haven't planned for Sydney especially but maybe we can have a bit chat? I'll PM you my email address.

The first thing I was told coming to Australia is don't make any plans, they never work out! And that's held true so far haha because my plans have had to change yet again. I've gotten the opportunity to go to Uluru in April so I'm now staying in Sydney until the end of April and then I have to go do my regional because I'm really not leaving myself a lot of time for things to go wrong with it :-)
So is anyone up for the end of April?? I'll be leaving the week of the 26th, for definite this time :-)

I need to do my regional work and the end of April would work for me. I'd be up for joining you :)

Great :-) Where are you at the moment? Have you looked into the work much or given much thought of where you wanted to go?

I am currently doing some regional work atm but hoping to break it up abit. Planning to leave the outback mid April. Will be around to discuss more regional work ? I also arrived in September and lived in Bondi for 6 months :)

I'm in melbourne at the moment , but I'm heading up to Queensland next week. I haven't thought about it all that much, but I'd basically go wherever the work is

Nice! I've been out to Bondi a few times at this stage! I'm living out in the Northern Beaches at the mo. I'm heading to Uluru the 22nd to the 25th of April. So I'll be around in Sydney up until then?
then I really need to be leaving in the next few days after the 25th as I'm really not leaving myself enough time at all I think to get my work done :-) it'll be ok if nothing goes wrong ha but I'll chance my arm anyway :-)

Andrew - i had always had Bowen in my head to go to, but that's because I've a friend in Airlie Beach so I wouldn't be too far from someone I knew! At this stage I'm like that now, will have to try go where the most work is.

I'll be looking to complete some of my regional work at the end of April, not sure where would be best to head too though. Cairns, Bundaberg, anyone got any ideas?
