Hey there, I believe theres already been a few threads about Oz Intro, but I for one was on it last June and found it to be excellent. For a lone traveller it was a great way to make new friends; I still keep in touch with all of my fellow oz-introers and we had load of fun together. I was really anxious too before arriving but there was no need at all, within a few days I really felt at home and I loved going on all the trips. Also you dont have to worry about the boring but important stuff like medical card/banking/phone etc as thats all taken care of. When I left Coogee I already had new friends to travel up the east coast with - you will love it for sure!
Thats awsome to hear. I'll be heading to Australia in April, and I'm more than a little lost/ over whelmed on what to do since I'll be on my own.
I've been looking into the OzIntro, so its nice to see people giving it good reviews
Yeah and surfside backpackers that ozintro use is a pretty cool place and a good hostel to meet people and it's right on the beach with a Mcdonalds below it..... could you ask for any more...ha ha
have fun....say hi to richard at surfside for me.

I'm hoping to do Oz Intro on June 18th and i'm on my own too for 3 months and then heading to NZ end of august.
If you wanna go for a drink let us know
Is there any reason why most of you have chosen to go in the australian winter? Is it because you are going to Uni or are there other reasons?
sorry i'm just curious 'cos i intend to go around january of next year and just wanted to know if you guys know something i don't!!!

I'm going for a year, but the reason I'm starting in the fall / winter is because I'm from Canada. my summer is as warm as the winters down there! I dont want to arrive in the middle of the summer in +35 degree weather. Thats a little too much of a shock to my system! It also is going to allow me time to get up north durring the winter so I dont boil to death
And it worked out well with family and such too, which is always a plus
Going with OzIntro on June 18th with 2 friends. Can't wait to get there and meet new people, see and do loads of new things and generally have the best year ever.
Definitely go for a drink or 2 if you're still living it up in Sydney.
I'm also going on the 18th of june with ozintro, and travelling alone!!!! So if anyone wants to take pitty on me I wouldn't mind ha ha!!!!!
Other than that I'd appreciate just any info!!!
Thanks and have fun!!!!
