Similar to you really, I've not thought too far ahead. Working in Sydney would be pretty cool but I reckon there'd be a lot more competition for jobs. If I'm honest getting a job is the one thing that slightly worries me about doing this, if you can't get one you're pretty much screwed! Hopefully it won't be that bad though! I'd also love to see the Great Barrier Reef! I'd never forgive myself if I came back from Oz without seeing it. I've heard good things about the Whitsundays as well! x

Hi Kev,

Have you booked your flights now? I was thinking of probably flying from london as the cheapest flights seem to be going from there! I think it was something like £370 to bangkok. What date are you looking at in october?

Most of my uni mates have already been traveling or are still living in Australia but they're visas will run out before I get out! So I'm going it alone too. My friend worked in a bar near bondi beach and as a nanny, she's saved like £3000 easily. So my aim is to save a bit to be honest as I'm gong to be put flights and visas on a credit card! I never get on an actual computer so it might be easier to chat if you've got fb?

@dan... I've not really thought that far ahead! I guess it depends on how much further my money will go and who I've met. if I love Sydney I might try and get work there.. or if not keep going up.. tbh I will do it at some point cause I want to see as much of oz as possible while im there and definitely want to go to the great barrier reef! so whether I work a bit then move up or if I move up then work will have to see.. What about you, are you wanting to work in Sydney? x

Haven't booked anything yet. Need to have a proper look at how much money I'm going to need. Have about 3 grand at the mo. I'd think 5 would be sufficient to go with, just look for work when the money begins to dry up. Who were those flights with for £370?

Yeah - im on fb - Kev Sweet.
