Hey im going in Jan as well, cant wait, im travelling on my own. Not booked any flights or anything yet, but im thinking of flying with Singapour airlines, been to Oz with them be 4 and they are really good. What are ur plans? You do need a license to work in the bars i think, there is a day long course you can do when you get out there. Lv Adele x

You dont need a license as such, you need to get your RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) which you can do in about 5 hours or so. Places like casinos will be able to point you in the right direction of when they are running RSA days.
You may also need an RCG (Responsible Conduct of Gambling) if you are working in a venue that has poker machines. All up to the managers discretion i guess.
