Hi everyone

So basically I'm flying out to Sydney early September and starting the ultimate Oz package on the 07th September for a week! And then not sure really what to do after. I have a few ideas in mind as I would love to travel the east coast! However I'm not such whether to book it in with a package, do the hop off hop on bus or hire a camper van with possibly new people I've met there! And whether to do this straight away after my intro week or wait a while!

I have a bit of money saved which will do for a while but will then be looking for a job. Would love to spend nye in Sydney - I don't have any plans and Its just a little daunting letting things go with the flow!

Would love to chat to anyone who is going around the same time! X

For NYE in Sydney, book accommodation within the next two months. (Seriously.)

Also consider not going with a "hop-on" bus, but just with regular public transport, such as Greyhound and their regional competitors. That tends to be the cheapest way to get around, and you'll still meet plenty of fellow travellers at the hostels you stay at.

Thanks for that! I suppose I'm just stuck in a bit of a dilemma because I don't really want to book anything as of yet because obviously I don't know what's going to happen/who I'm going to meet so!

Hi Jess!

That's great to hear as I am really looking forward to meeting new people!

What are your plans after the first week?

Could possibly meet up and stuff! :)

I don't really have any plans, I'm hoping to rent a camper and go up the east coast. I haven't really thought ahead much more than that!! 😀 Keely we have a facebook group of girls who are going to Aus around the same time? What is your facebook and I will add you into the group, 3 of the girls are going on the same
ultimate Oz as you 😀😀xxx

Hi girls!

I get to Sydney on the 5th sept & have been thinking about joining the OzIntro group on the 7th sept! I had a look into UltimateOz that you mentioned Keeley & it looks a similar sort of thing, so I might join you! also thinking about Sydney for NY - heard it's the place to be! 😄

Have you girls got a working holiday visa also?

Hi there!!

I've actually changed now and doing the second week so starting ultimate Oz on the 14th as its better for me.

But basically when you pay this company you are also able to add the visa at the same time obviously with an additional charge so!

What are your plans? X

oh right wicked! I haven't planned anything yet, definitely want to do the east coast..thinking travelling for a bit before finding work though!

I'm flying straight from the states as I'm doing camp America before! Bit of a crazy idea now I'm planning everything haha I'm coming with another girl but she might go straight to work on a farm to get second year visa, just don't know if I want to do that straight away! What are your plans?xx
