Awesome re diving! I am currently on a mission to find the best diving school in Malta to get my diving course by this summer because I want to dive in the great barrier reef :)) Which is why I'm flying to Brisbane!

RC2012 sorry I don't know about how easy it is to find work. Something I would like to find out too. Steffi.yng to be honest i'm not sure where i'd want to go, anywhere I guess! lol. I will be quitting my job too but would be looking to be back by beginning of September to do my teacher training. Yes have facebook (Bryony Witton-Nembhard) add me :)

I cannot find you on facebook page is this :) I've been looking into loads of info on where to go and stuff..and I've also read loads of blogs...but the one main thing I've always read is that you end up making loads of plans whilst actually it's nice to make plans on forums and so on to meet people when you arrive if you manage that then take it from there...because it is apparently very easy to get to know people in hostels and so on so it doesn't make sense to do much planning before anyway :)

Oh really, I've added you now lol. Oh really. How much are you planning on taking to last you the two months? I have no idea of how much money would be needed lol.

Hehe ok got it!

I'm not quite sure about how much to take..I really need to get a better idea too damn it...Oz is somewhat expensive though so it needs to be a slightly decent amount =/

What month are you thinking about heading out there Steffi and how long are you spending in SE Asia? again I have no idea on how much I will need either, i've heard you need roughly $100 a day for Aus and you can live on about £500 a month in SE Asia, Aus seems so expensive which is why I want to try and get a job quickly

Hey guys!

Im heading out to oz next march and also going on my own! Really excited about it all at the min but i know i will be crapping myself when the time comes! Lol!
Thinking of heading to Perth first as ive been told its quite easy to get a job there. Planning on making as much money as i can for the first few mths then moving on up to Brisbane then work my way down the coast! Im going for the year but only going to be able to save the minimum amount needed to get in the country so defo need to work to get round!

My friend has just come back from oz, asia and nz and had an amazing time! She was out there on her own and made loads of friends and her plans were always changing! She managed to bag herself some really good jobs as well! One was even for the oz immigration! Catching up with her tomorrow so will let you guys know what tips she has.

RC2012 - I won't be going to SE Asia..just straight to is rather expensive =/ AUD 100 a day sounds liek it would make sense..that would mean around AUD 4000 per month of not working more or also depends on the lifestyle you live I guess. I'm sure there are days when I can get by with not doing much, and eating a couple of pots of noodles..which would amount to AUS 100 or less hehe. I'm also considering working a little when I get there then starting my travels after. But I think it would feel abit harsh to get there and start working immediately. Would be nice to live the exciting life of getting to see some parts of Oz then after a tiring month or so of that, settling down to work for some time. What are your opinions on this?

Becki81: That';s exactly what i keep saying about when the time comes hehe! The expression I choose to use is 'I will be shitting bricks' =p But it's all in good fun and all part of the thrill and the experience. It's the 2 days of traveling alone after leaving all my friends and family in the airport which are definitely going to kill me! Good luck with your adventures!! Soooo luck it's happening so soon for you! :)

Greener_85: That';s exactly how I've felt for aaaages now! Which is precisely why I made the crazy choice to buy my flight a week ago...a flight from 10 months before i just crazy! But I had to do it coz I was killing myself saying 'soon..soon' and then just booking one holiday after the other and not managing to save up! I just got back from 2 holidays, have another 2 booked for june and july..then it's malta-bound and hardcore saving from then until February 2013!! Alternatively, we could join forces, rob a bank, and head over to Oz soon..haha
