Help. Please.

Hello. I want to go touring Australia with my friend but don't no how I am going to go about it. Should I go and stay in hostels and look for work while I am over there. I am also thinking of buying a camper van that way will be able to see a lot more. But do t want to buy a shoddy van and end up breaking down in the outback. Any help would be very appreciative. Thank you Reece

In which city will you arrive ?

How long do you plan to be here ?

Which type of work do you want ?

You can hire camper vans or bare vans.

I would like to start in Sydney for New Year's Eve and am looking at doing 12 month. I will do any type of work from mining to postman. I have my blue dog white card.

In cities (like Sydney) it is fairly easy to buy a van already decked out for travelling around as there are always backpackers coming and going and needing to sell their vehicles before departing. Check out sites like gumtree. If first arriving in Sydney there is a backpackers which is super cheap and friendly called Balmain Backpackers and they have a lot of people staying there who can help with work around the place too. And can point you in the right direction for tax file numbers, bank accounts, etc.

Whilst travelling around you should be able to pick up fruit picking or farming jobs pretty easily as long as you are willing to work hard! In cities there are HEAPS of door to door fundraising jobs - although not usually suited for long term and make sure you get one with a base pay rate or you could be spending all day door knocking for nothing!

Hostels Worldwide - Online Hostel Bookings, Ratings and Reviews is handy for finding which hostels (and prices) are in which location.
www.gumtree.com.au is useful for everything (short term accommodation/renting, vehicles, ride shares, jobs)
http://hanahk.dingoblue.hop.clickbank.net/ can give you loads of info too on visas, tax file, etc

Depends what you like doing....Australia has it all!
Blue Mountains, Uluru (Ayres Rock), the Outback is also quite interesting to visit as life is sooo different (I live/work in the outback at the moment on a HUGE cattle station - like nothing that would ever be expected), Cairns, Kangaroo Island (off of South Australia) is amazing, Victor Harbour. There are soo many things! I'm currently in the process of writing up an Aussie sightseeing trip for my new travel blog....so will let you know when I finish it

Bit of a traveller and a local lol. I was born in Aussie but moved to New Zealand when I was 5. I'm now just living and working in as many different locations as possible to explore new places and experience new things
