I'm going to Aus in November starting off in Sydney with 1 friend is there anyone who would like to join us going around the same time? We will be flying from Manchester at the end of Nov (we haven't booked our flight yet) Also if anyone who has been already give me any tips on how much £4,000 will last me I'm planning on finding enough people to house/flat share with once I get there and Im hoping not to spend to much on food a week I would rather spend my money on seeing Aus and going out having fun I am planning on getting a job hopefully work for 1 month then travel about and keep doing that.

Rather late replying but I'm new to this! I'm also flying out of Manchester at the end of November.. Hopefully 21st and planning on taking about £4000 but I'm hoping to travel for the first month before settling for work and saving a little before continuing my travels.
I've heard off a few friends which have done the same and they have said you can easily travell off £1000 a months so £4000 will be plenty.
Good luck with your travels :)

I shall hopefully be in sydney when you guys arrive i land in september :)

im thinking flat sharing is going to work out better then getting a hostel as over the fesitve perioid one of them emailed me there prices and there 70 dollars a night

But i dont even live on my own in england never mind australia so i have no ideA

Also things will be booking out quick - for instance in the hostel- bounce sydney - they fill up for xmas around july

I dont know how many dollars to take i no people onyl take abour 3000 sometimes and some take over 10,000

so i want to aim for about 5 and then work and travel bit my bit on the east coast in cool bars :)

Im so worried about food cause i have a good appetite - pasta and sauce is probably the way forward with keeping the cost low

Im just going to take as much as possible and work as little as possible :)

When you come it might be hard to get a place so start planning now !!
