I want to go to Australia hopefully in middle of Feb. Although I need some help with my traveling plans so hope you guys can help me out. My dates are not in stone just using them for guidance

Feb 14 till Mar 14 = Sydney

Mar 14 bus to Melbourne = $65

Mar 14 till Apr 14 = Melbourne

Apr 14 fly to Brisbane = $180

Apr 14 till Apr 26 = Brisbane

Apr 26 Bus from Brisbane to Surfers Paradise=$26

Apr 26 till May 26 = Surfers Paradise

Staying at YHA Hostels = $3800 there lowest rates were around $28-$31 a day.
Food = 3000
Other Expenses= $2000 (Tours,Bus,etc)

Is around $9,000 enough for 3 months? If I was going to turn it in to a working holiday and stay for 6 months and get a visa how would you map the itinerary. What place would you work for 2-3 months? What does the average person spend on a 6 month journey?

Appreciate any help. Thank you

Happy New Year to all !!!

I agree with all the previous posters.... that would probably be enough money, but you'll miss out on a lot of what the country has to offer. A month in Sydney? Nice place but it IS just another sydney. I spent a year there (worked 3 months in melbourne and 2 months in perth...). I would never even think about missing the Great Barrier Reef, swimming with dolphins in the Great AUstralian Bight (South Australia) or driving up the west coast in a purchased car (there is NOTHING like camping on the beach with wallabies hopping around your tent, MILES from the nearest civilisation!)
