Starter budget 6 months working and traveling


In a few months I'm going to Australia for 6 months to work and travel. After these 6 months I'm planning to go to Asia for 3 months or so.

My plan is to try to get work immediately when i arrive.

My question is, how much money do I need to bring to Australia to get this plan to work?

I know I need 5000 AUD to get into the country.

Will 10000 AUD be enough for this? I guess ill be working in Australia 4 months in total, travel 2 months. And then Asia after that..

My living standards will be not that high. Hostels, camping, cooking, not many tours etc.

Well $10k sounds enough but we don;t about your living style, tours, hire car costs etc etc ?

Ask over on backpacker forums on www.travellerspoint.com

You can price up hostels for the internet and then add $50 a day for living expenses plus tours/travel/drinks etc etc.

Where are arriving for the job (don't assume immediate work unless lined up before/experience/skills) ?

www.seek.com.au for jobs


And get the right visa to work (apply now)
