Where abouts in Australia should I do my year abroad?

This October, I plan on going to Australia for a year. I’ll have about 5,000AUD to start off with and I’ll have to get a place and a job. I have relatives in Perth so I was going to go there and start off living with them then move out but honestly I’d prefer Melbourne or somewhere along the east coast. The major problem is money as I do not have a lot to start off with but I do want to go to the east. Does anyone have any ideas or similar experiences? Thank you so much in advance.

Assuming you have your WHV sorted out already - I would head over to the travellerspoint.com forums as that is where the WHV crowd hang out and you will get advice more suited to that travel style.

agree look at forums on www.travellerspoint.com

Also look at ideas on jobs at www.seek.com.au and www.gumtree.com.au (more casual jobs)

Melbourne is big so more jobs but always depends on what you can do.
