It won't let me send one for some reason! I paid £469 for the oz intro, which is a week of activities in a group of 17 I think it is! And also I got an open return to Sydney which was just over £1000 so works out £500 each way really! What are you're plans? X

Did you send more than ~10-15 private messages already today, by any chance? If so, then you're running into a mechanism designed to prevent spammers from bothering too many people. (Which we should probably make a bit more lenient.) It'll allow you to send ever more private messages every day, so you can send new ones again tomorrow, and soon you shouldn't run into the limit anymore at all - but rather annoying all the same.
If you haven't sent that many private messages yet today, then please start a new thread in the System Talk forum, reporting this as a bug, and copy/pasting the exact message you get when you try to send that private message.

That doesn't sound too bad! I'm just working out all the practical stuff and getting more info before I decide when I could go but interested in the intro week and then finding work as soon as I got there to pay for living costs- not so much thought about travelling around yet but I guess you could figure out plans whilst there. I need to save more money up before I could book this... But so eager to get away!!!!
Are you bothered by going alone? X

ddizzle88, I think I might stay in Melbourne for a bit as I heard there's sometimes seasonal work around there until December then perhaps move north. How about you? :)

Lizabeth280, I booked my flight with STA travel as it was only £199 when you bought the work visa too which was £299. So it worked out really well :) they have dates from 1st-28th sept but it is limited and ends on 3rd April so far if you were interested :)

Hello!
Just thought I'd join this as I am too going to Aussie at the end of September and thinking about doing Oz intro starting Mon, 29th
Where are you guys heading after Sydney?
Penny :)

Thanks for your tip Abby I went into STA yesterday just to make enquiries but they never mentioned the April deadline... I'll need to book an appointment with an advisor to talk through it.

The flight deal sounds really good!

FWIW, the regular price of the Working Holiday Visa when bought through the official site of the Australian Department of Immigration is currently £265.

No worries. Yeah they said if might change as it's quite popular (obviously!) so it could be on for longer :) good luck with it though!
