Hi I am 24 and thinking of doing a years working holiday and travelling around Australia. I’ve never done anything like this before and going alone is daunting!

Any advice or people looking to do the same thing would be great! cheese

Hey,

Also doing a similar thing, I’m starting in Cairns and travelling down the East Coast to Sydney, then hoping to work in Sydney.

I’ve just got my visa!

Thanks
Emma

Hi!

Oh cool, how was the visa process? Did you apply independently or go through an agency? Like STA

I’m hoping to apply in a few weeks.

I’ve been debating where to start, travelling down the east coast does make sense though.

Thanks,

Lauren

I just did mine independently it was really easy and quick. Just did it online, then they phoned me the next day to confirm and take payment. Then it took about 48 hours and it was confirmed by email that my application had been accepted. The 12 months starts as soon as I enter Oz.

Yeah I’m thinking of doing Wanderlands Australia package, have you had a look at it?

Hope this helps
Emma smile

Hello!

Looking to go out to Australia at the end of November so would be good to meet some people that are also travelling around!
Im starting in Melbourne as i have family there, but im up for travelling around the east coast!

There are also certain farming jobs you can do which allow you to gain a second years visa which i think would be a good idea!

Give me a shout back, Rory smile
