If you're heading into Australia from Asia, you can find flights to Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Bangkok in Thailand, or Bali, for under £200. Head into a store to speak to a Travel Expert to start the journey...
Spring lasts from September to November - during this time, expect as many rainy days as warm ones. Christmas brings amazing heat, with Melbourne's summer temperatures regularly hitting 35 degrees.
Super easy! Step one, arm yourself with a working holiday visa or one of our fail-safe starter packs - which are valid for up to a year. Step two, hone your CV and send it out to as many businesses as possible. There are heaps of online jobs boards and forums so it will take you no time at all to find hospitality, shop, bar or cafe work. The economy is pretty strong in Melbourne, meaning you can earn between $15 and $30 an hour, even for unskilled work. Step three, hustle, baby!
Step four is optional - you can choose to complete three month's 'regional work' (meaning fruit picking, farming or agriculture) in order to meet the requirements to have your working holiday visa extended for another year. Trust us, you won't want to leave Melbourne after just one year...
