I just got my visa acceptance today for Oz. I fly out sep 9th, im being sponsored and i must say its a super easy way to do it. Plus youv got guaranteed work as soon as you arrive. Got any questions then feel free to fire away.

Done NZ and Oz and despite the pay difference I reckon NZ is better if you're coming from the UK. The weather is more tolerable. Don't get me wrong, the sun and heat are nice but not all the time. I also prefer the lifestyle in NZ. Easier to do more without travelling massive distances.

Keep an eye on trademe for accommodation and some of the backpacker websites are worth a trawl. As for places to avoid? Auckland. Expensive and over rated. Seriously though it depends on where you want to be based.

Arran, if you want more detailed info regarding sponsorship etc PM me as it takes up quite a bit of space and is a bit too long winded and boring to post on the forum.

I suppose what we would class as a small town would only be a village in the UK and unlikely to have too many arb jobs. Doesn't mean to say you couldn't travel but some of those small towns are quite close nit and difficult to break in to. I'd still avoid Auckland though, full of jaffas:001_tongue:
