What's your reason for wanting to use OzIntro?

If you don't use them it's still easy to meet people (in youth hostels), it's easy to set up a bank account in Australia (just show passport within 6 weeks of entry, and have an address), job boards are available in youth hostels and some other places, no hassle with obtaining medicare card (if appropriate) or Tax File Number.

If you want mail holding you can get it by itself with a place such as Travellers Contact Point (located on George Street in central Sydney). It's easy to book accommodation to begin with before you go (my recommendation would be YHA Glebe, but there are other good hostels too in Sydney).

OzIntro just doesn't seem worth the £369 to me.

I think Oz Intro is great. It gets very good feedback on this site. Its about having a great time in your first week in Oz. Have a look at what you get. Its not really about bank accounts and mailboxes.
