You should go to australia boot.

YOU DO NOT NEED REAL GAP TO GET AN OZ VISA.

Real gap will not plan your holiday, they give little/no support,

All you need to do is go the the australian embassy, usually embassies are open 10 till 3, monday to friday.

You will be wasting your money if you book a program with them. Take it from someone who has been with Real Gap. They didn't even find me a place to live when I went abroad, I moved 4 times, 2 were hotels, one was a dismal dorm, and the other one I got evicted without being told why.

haha I thought the same thing. just go alone. you will meet about 30 people the first week you are there. OZ is a big party, you will not be alone for a second. You will have a hard time finding time to be by yourself.

Hey.
Im gonna be doing the same thing as you, only going in a few weeks but will still be in OZ.
If you dont mind partying with a canadian then keep me in mind, im always game to travel with a Brit.
