Me and my girlfriend 1st time travellers!Hi Everyone,
1st time user here. Hope I can get the help I need from the people who have done/are doing what we are looking to do.
We are from the UK, and we want to travel around Australia for 8 Months. We have looked and several options but we cannot decide the best way to approach it.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated and directions on where is best to book tickets would really help too :)

1first - visas. To stay in Oz that long you either need a working holiday visa or an extended tourist visa.
second - insurance. Research it and book it when you book tickets.
third - tickets; google is your friend. Look at prices, stopovers, conditions.
then borrow some guidebooks and see what interests you. Not that you need to plan the whole thing.
finally, you will need LOTS of money for your holiday.

If you're under 31, and staying here that long, get the WHV. You can stay 12 months, and work if needed.
Otherwise the standard tourist visa is 3 months. Staying longer than this, if you don't get a WHV, gets tricky as you have to prove you have the funds to support yourself.

7I you intend to work at all in the hospitality industry, and signing up with an agency who supply bar staff and waiters to the industry is a great way to find casual work you will need one of these..............
