I'm off to Australia in November and can't decide between Oz Intro or Ultimate Oz. Does anyone have any experience doing either of them? From doing a bit of research, it looks like with Oz Intro you stay at the same hostel the whole time, whereas with Ultimate Oz it's a mixture between hotels, camping etc.

I'm flying into Sydney and doing either Oz Intro or Ultimate Oz for a week and then I have no plans whatsoever so I'm open to anything and any ideas really. I'm going to be 29 when I fly out though so I'm a bit worried I'll be quite a bit older than most of the other people I'm going to end up meeting while I'm away. Apart from that though I can't wait!! What about you, have you got any plans?

I'm flying out in November. Will probably be away for a couple of years. No solid plans, but at some point during the year I will do three months farming in order for me to get my second year visa. Probably after the first year I will leave Oz and spend a few months doing Thailand, Bali, Cambodia, Vietnam, Asia etc and then return to Oz and work before doing New Zealand. That's sort of what I have in my head, but no solid plans really apart from doing Oz Intro or Ultimate Oz for my first week. I'm hoping to meet some other solo travellers.
