You could pay Work and Travel Company 500 quid for the same thing.

Jenko, break down the package. For example:

a. Airport transfer - cost $15
b. 2 Nights Accommodation - $50
c. Breakfast in the bar down stairs - $2
d. Harbour cruise - you can catch the Manly ferry for $5 and see more of Sydney's great harbour and one of the great beaches Manly.
e. Set up an Australian bank account - can do this for free when you arrive - not that hard
f. Set up Tax File Number - can do this yourself online for FREE
g. job and Travel advice - Wake Up do NOT have a proper Job's board and as for travel, there are so many travel agnecies within a stone's throw of Wake-Up that you will get better deals of you shop around
h. Fail Forwarding - don't need it
i. Nomads discount card - if you don't buy the package and arrive on your own you'll save more so you won't need this.
j. Emergency phone number - your travel insurance takes care of everything
k. Vodafone pre-paid sim card - $9.95

Starter packs are good so long as they are priced right so shop around.
