Hey guys!

I'm flying into Perth at the end of march and i have 3 months to make my way to Sydney, where i'm flying out of.

So heres the rough plan, i'm gonna be in Perth, then head north to Broome, Darwin, Cairns then down the coast to Sydney, i plan to see as much as i can while having as much fun as i can!

I have my WHV, but don't really plan on working, i might do a day here and there so any suggestions and meet-up's would be greatly apprieciated!

Thanks!, Kel

I just landed in Sydney a couple of days ago and it's been great so far...I don't think you'll have any problems finding casual work as long as you have a tax file number (you can get it online...but I don't remember the link)...the job boards at the hostels are chock-full of jobs (at least here they are)...keep us posted cause I'm headed out the Perth at some point too! Meet-up, here we come

I'm up for a meetup in Darwin if we happen to be there at the same time. And Sydney, it's only a couple of hours drive from where i live. Do you plan on going to the blue mountains at all, more specifically Katoomba (it's only 2 hr train ride from Syd)?? I have a mate that runs a hostel there, he might be able to give you mates rates or something.

Have fun mate
