SpecialK Hi Natasha, my partner and me just travelled trough Oz and now we in SEA, Bali at this time. As the other guys already told you - you won't have any problems meeting people. Especially on the eastcoast there are soooo many backpackers from all over the world... I would actually go for a job in Cairns, rather than Sydney. Sydney is a great place to stay, but it's huge and there are so many people looking for jobs. Haven't tried by myself because I worked in Melbourne already, but people told me that they were struggeling finding a job there. In the end they took a bad paid job as waiters for 10 bucks/hour. In Cairns there were so many people looking for staff (was in October). If you work in hostels or for travel agencies you may even find one, where you get offered e.g. diving and trips to the GBR for free!! And if you think about a sailing trip around the Whitsundays - depends what kind of boat you are looking for (party/couples/3-days/2-days) have a look on the offers from "the Summertime". Great boat and value! Drop me a line if you have any further questions. Travel save and take care!
