Hi JennaJ,
Well I'm taking a gap year and planning to work for the first 6 months or so and then leave for Oz in Jan '13! Cannot wait! But I've been doing a bit of research and I'm really tempted by the Oz Intro week and the reviews are all really good... So I think I may end up going with them and then working in Sydney and then go off travelling around Oz! That's the master plan and fingers crossed it will become a reality! X

hi Allison,

I am planning to travel australia. On August 21, I'm scheduled to arrive Sydney. I'm traveling alone as well. My plan is to back pack australia for a month.Sydney first, then Brisbane, and up north to Uluru and Alice Springs. Depart at Darwin.
My plans are very tentative yet, coz i'l be doing it alone. It would be nice to have a travel buddy. :)

Hi Sarah,

I am planning to either do the Ozintro Week or the Ultimate Oz experience undecided between the two. I dont have too many plans after apart from I would like to do Cairns around August time. Do you have any plans?

Hey Aaron and Sarah!

Hadnt heard of the oz intro week or the ultimate oz untill I came here. I dont know if we will do that, we're defo going to book into a hostel for a week or two untill we get sorted and hoefully get jobs. Are you planning on working? Where are you both flying from? :)

Hey - I land in Sydney on 17th of May, i've booked into Wake Up Hostel - alone btw!
Is anyone going to be around then?

I'm a bit skeptical of booking with Ozintro - Ultimate Oz etc, thinking if ive booked into a good/lively hostel i can hopefully meet people on my own?
