Hi,

I am really considering regarding a gapyear working holiday at Australia. I have read the visa conditions. My only considirations are that if 5000 Australians Dollars are enough to begin with and what is the best month and from where to start the journey.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you!

In terms of "where to start the journey" it really depends on what you want to do/see/experience. Not sure where you are from, but Australia is the size of the USA, except much more sparse.

$5k can work, it depends entirely on your aims, if it's a gap year, so mainly travelling around, picking up maybe the odd job here and there for a bit of fun/experience then I would probably aim for much more than that.

If you plan on basing yourself in a major city and using that as a bounce point for short weekend trips etc and having a fairly permanent job for the duration than $5k would probably cover.

Best months for what? finding work? seeing certain things? experiencing certain things?

Hi joseph, as the fluff has said $5K will get you going, don't expect it to last for ever though. Australia is EXPENSIVE, well until you get working and earning an Australian wage! Work can be hard to come by, so get your bank account and tax file number sorted out soon as possible after arrival

Hi Joseph, what type of work are you looking at doing while you are here? I would start out in the city you are most likely to get that type of work so you get more cash in the bank initially, as opposed to eating into your funds straight away. You can start the process of getting your Aussie bank account before you arrive - this should speed things up for you.

hi,

It depends what you where you want to stay in Austriala, in which conditions, how many time...? If you want to travel and work once arrived staying on backpacks with others travellers and it will be fine I think.
But remind that it is expensive to live in Australia...
