Basically im planning a gap year in Australia next year, approx starting next September, however i have never been to Australia and i have no idea what to see and where to go, my initial plan is two months in Perth, two months in Sydney and two months in Melbourne, the other 6 months i have not decided upon as i want the year to be fairly flexible so i can do what i want as and when i want. What do you guys recommend? Bare in mind that i will also have to work wherever i go. One dilemma im having is how is the job market over there as im going to be obtaining the working holiday visa which allows me to have casual work, but no longer than 6 months with one employer, are there plenty of jobs around? ive checked the Australian gumtree and loads of backpacker job websites but i just wanted either a locals perspective or current/previous backpackers perspective. Also as this is a music based forum, what can i do/see regarding the Australian music scene? bare in mind it has to be relatively cheap, 12 months without my guitars is going to be difficult but if i can see some decent Aussie bands then i'd be happy.
