Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Working Holiday Visa - What month should I go?!

Hi guys, I am planning on moving to Australia on a working visa and I will be going solo (terrified) and really I'm keeping my options open in terms of travel first or work first or what. I've done a lot of asking around and research etc. but I haven't booked any flights yet.

I need help with deciding when I should leave. My thoughts are possibly May and fly to Melbourne however I realise it will be winter and so if I do decide to travel before getting a job I won't necessarily get the best weather. Of course, I can always get a job straight away and work May-September and travel when the weather gets good (I'm banking on just meeting people in hostels to travel with).

My other option is to fly out in August (possibly with a bit more money in the bank) and then at least if I travel first weather will be good and if I want fruit picking job I'll get one then easier.

Basically can't decide if i'm just being silly and putting it off until August or if I should just bite the bullet and go April/May.

Any advice or tips would really be appreciated thanks so much!
