hey,

I'm planning to head down under towards the end of August/early Sep and i've been looking into these arrival packages from ultimate oz and oz intro? I was wondering if someone has done one, or are thinking about doing one?

I'm in two minds about signing up to one because on one hand it sorts everything out for you and gets you to meet other people, then i have a massive ego and reckon i could do it myself (hahaha, yeah right)

Any advise going?

You really can do it all yourself. Having done so myself twice (first in New Zealand, then in Australia) back in 2003/2004 as a completely inexperienced traveller, I can tell you it's perfectly easy, and I'm pretty certain that the vast majority of backpackers indeed do it all themselves (three years ago, the entire concept of arrival packages didn't even exist; it was just ozintro, and that was so expensive most people skipped it).

I've actually just booked this package today, i'm going alone on 10th march and it looks great to me, and a good price considering all the activities and accommodation included, but obviously i cant be of much help, as i'm yet to experience it.

aw wow! You will have to let me know how it goes! I'm really interested but haven't managed to speak to someone who has done it!
I like the idea of not having to worry about anything as you get there and it just being sorted.
bet your real excited!
