Name Campervanning and Backpacking Australia and New Zealand

We are planning to leave the United State for Australia in late November or early December of 2012. While there, we will be backpacking and campervanning to save on accommodation costs. We plan to spend approximately six months in Australia before selling our campervan and heading to New Zealand, where we will campervan and backpack for approximately another six months. We have already been approved for working holiday visas in Australia and plan on getting working holiday visas for New Zealand as well. We will be working in both countries to supplement our trip. We are looking for travel partners who have a campervan of their own or who are willing to contribute financially if they would like to travel with us in our campervan(s). Due to the cramped nature of staying in a campervan, we would be very limited as far as how many people we could invite to travel with us in our campervan (no number limits for people with their own campervan). Let us know if you would like to meet up and/or travel together, even if it is for just a small leg of our trip. We are looking forward to making new friends! Feel free to ask us any questions.

Miha Hi, thanks a lot for such a fast answer. Still I have one more question regarding visas. As I understood you have a working holiday visa. So, you got that visa through internet portal or you had to visit embassy? And home many hours per week can you work with this visa? Thank you very much for you answer.

Aaron&Megan There is no limit on the number of hours you can work per week. The only limitation I am aware of is that you cannot have the same job for more than six months.
