A mate and I will be travelling to Australia, more specifically Brisbane, with a working holiday visa in the middle of february, and we will be staying until the 1st of may. We plan on finding a cheap hostel as soon as we get there, and then go about exploring the city, thereafter we will start looking for work, basically looking for whatever is available. We also intend to see more of the australian east coast, we would very much like to go to The Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, and perhaps Melbourne but this all depends on how much we will be able to earn from working.
I thought it would be a good idea to ask for some general tips and advice on an international forum, e.g. where to find work, cheap hostels, where to look for cheap tours and so forth.
If you have anything to share about your own experiences it would be very appreciated, thanks in advance!
