Hey Hattie, yeah wake up looks good. I've actually booked it for christmas already because I know you have too book early!

I'm wandering about this Oz Intro thing, not sure if its worth doing or whether to just book a hostel?

Louise I'm arriving on the 8th!

Hi, I was looking at the oz intro but thought against it and just meet people in hostels etc. Plus want to save my money for other things

I think we should all meet in the same hostel during the end of September?? Would be great to meet everyone :-) xx

Hey im thinkin of going out for 6 months or so to Aus in Sept/Oct time to work/travel. I wanted to see if many others are going then too? Would be nice to meet people and know what they plan to do. I was thinking Oz intro but like you say it is prob best to save money. I've never been before so would be nice for any tips :) x

Hi everyone! I changed my plans a little again- was planning to do the oz intro package in sept, but decided to just book into the wake up hostel in Sydney instead for a week and hopefully meet people and figure out a plan that way! My sis stayed there last year and met her main group of friends there- also, I figure I can use the extra money saved from not doing the oz intro to stay in the hostel a bit longer if necessary!
So I'm flying from dub to Sydney on 7th sept- arriving on the 9th, staying with a friend til the 11th sept and then booked in to wake up from 11th-20th sept! Would love to meet up with anyone who is there at that time, will also be looking for somewhere to live and a job! Lol
Ps I'm getting so excited, roll on September!!xx

Hey I'm just trying to find travel insurance, just wandering who you're all using? I'm trying to find one not too expensive but covers enough activities!
It would definitely be great to meet everyone for drinks or something!:)
I'm going to book into wake up hostel when I get there on the 8th for a week, but I'm not looking for a job straight away cos I want to travel around a bit. Although I reckon I'll stay in Sydney for a few weeks at first. Getting really excited now! x
