Hi All

I am looking to potentially go travelling to Australia from October 2013 with the intention of staying for at least a year.

I would be travelling alone as no one else I know is in the position to leave..... I am interested in knowing the minimum amount of funds that would be best for me to ensure that I do not struggle whilst I am away. I do intend to work to keep me going.

Is there anyone travelling the same time that is booked up, or looking to go then?

I just need advice so I know where to start :)

Thanks, Kellie

Hey Kellie,

I'm heading out in October as well, but I'm going to stop in Thailand/Cambodia/Loas for a while so I don't plan to get to Australia till December....

I've been speaking to a few people and they say to budget for £1,000 a month. But that's based on not working and sightseeing etc.

Do you have any plans on where you want to go in Australia?

Hi i'm looking to Sydney in October! I'm thinking about doing the Ultimate Oz package thing, mainly as i'm also travelling alone!

Where about do you plan to start in Australia?
