New Sailor looking for adventure

Hi All - I'm a new sailor looking for a sailing experience / expedition / adventure. The time frame is sometime between April-June 2020, preferably in Australia or Pacific Islands. However, I'm open to anywhere during that time.
Additionally, advice for finding opportunities or sailing schools/program recommendations in Australia / Pacific Islands would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

The majority of us here are Yanks or Canadians, I assume you are an Aussie? You would be better off finding an Aussie forum or a FB group. Some boats might need a young willing enthusiastic person but knowing how to sail will get you much further on a boat bound for adventure.

As RU suggested show up in person at a local sailing venue, if you live near the water. A local race boat will be more likely to take on a young enthusiastic sailor than a boat heading for adventure.
