Jobs 4 Travellers have recently posted a full page guide of fantastic tips and advice on how to set you up for your gap year in Australia. Many travel companies offer to organise all the legal, visa and elements of your trip on your behalf, but they will charge you for the privilege.

From 1 to 10, Jobs 4 Travellers DIY/Welcome Pack Guide lists the most important things you need to do to get yourself ready, legally and practically settled for your gap year. The article covers a comprehensive list of tips to help you including advice on how to sort out your working holiday visa in plenty of time and to check that your travel insurance covers you for extreme sports like bungee jumping. The guide also goes into useful detail on the best way to book a place to stay and how to arrange transport from the airport to your hostel, take out medical insurance, apply for a tax file number, open a bank account, and most importantly how to meet people and find a job!
