WHV in Oz

How much money do people recommend you take when going to Oz on a WHV with intentions of living the shoestring life? I'm heading out in September with intentions of working for 6-10 months then travelling (not necessarily in Oz). Just trying to work out what sort of figure people manage to go over to Oz on a WHV with... Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated, cheers!

Hello everyone. We are trying to plan a three week trip to Australia for the end of Sept - beginning of Oct and would like advice on itinerary. We would like to do the Gold Coast Highway, Melbourne, Sydney, Uluru (Ayers Rock), the Whitsundays, Barrier Reef and Darwin. We are considering flying into Melbourne and out of Darwin but are not sure of the best way to organize the itinerary as to not spend time going back and forth. We want to drive the Gold Coast Highway, but would probably do…

Hi! My girlfriend and I are leaving Sydney the next Monday, we have a car and 19 days to go as far as we can, but we have to go back to Sydney at the end of the trip.

The idea is to do some camping, but I'm a bit afraid of the weather. Where do you think it would be possible to camp without freezing?

I think in Queensland the weather will be warmer, but I don't know about the distances. I wanna go to Airlie Beach but I don't know if is possible to do it and come back in 19 days. What do you…

We will be in Brisbane for a week in the middle of July'17. Will mostly be at the University of Queensland but should have the weekend to ourselves. Never been to Australia before. We - my wify and me - are fairly outgoing type and wouldn't mind being outdoors - on the move - all day. We prefer walking around and appreciating the architecture. At the same time - we enjoy nature tours, greenery or the blue waters. Need suggestions or possible itineraries.
Our only problem being that we only have…

Hi. I've just got to Australia, with the plan of exploring the country by car. I'm now in a bit of a panic as it's not proving as easy as I thought.

Context: I've got 7.5 more weeks here: 3.5 between Cairns and Brisbane, and 4 weeks between Brisbane and Darwin - ideally via Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Alice Springs. (There's a break in the middle for flights to Fiji.) The question is whether a car is worth it for this trip.

I'll give my perspective, but any other wisdom would be brilliant…

So suggestions where to go, where to start from, what to see, where to finish

I have…

So I'm travelling from Sydney to Cairns in November/December. Our room is booked in Sydney so we have 4 weeks after leaving Sydney to make our way to Cairns.

Our main trips are booked through an Oz Experience package (whitsundays, Fraser island, GBR and more I cant think of right now) - minus a few day trips, Skydiving, Cape tribulation Blue Mountains.
Our buses are paid for through the Oz experience/Greyhound.
7 nights of our accommodation is included in the Oz Experience package. So that's…
