    Can't seem to find an existing thread on BUNAC's Work Australia program.
    Anyone done it or planning on doing it?
    I'm going out in August and would love some tips or advice.

    I'm a bit confused about the amount of money you need to prove you have when you arrive in Australia. On your website it says "Evidence of AUS$5000 (£2500) on arrival in Australia", but at current exchange rates AUS$5000 is closer to £3500 than £2500 (it's about £3200 at the moment).
    After that it says, "If you travel on a one–way flight you will need evidence of an additional £500".

    Basically, I'm wondering whether the amounts the Australian government states are set at a standard rate in Australian Dollars or Pound Sterling? Either way, it would be more helpful to applicants if you got rid of the converted amounts in brackets and simply gave one figure for people to convert themselves, especially when those amounts are considerably innaccurate.

    Thanks for bringing our attention to this, we have now updated the copy and removed the old exchange rate.
