Hi Maria,

I am trying to organise heading out to Australia towards the end of this year also. Its nice to see there are lots of people going alone to as I am so scared I will get out there and not meet anyone. Are you planning on working while your out there? and are you going to use a company like Oz Intro to get you started? Sorry for all the questions.

Heya Griz,

would be great to get more info from u if ur keen to have a travel buddy ur plan sounds pretty simular to what im doing?!

Would be flying from heathrow too so would be great to have a friend,

Also i can't find the differences on ultimate oz for the 7,10 and 14 day packages they do in sydney apart from the price?? From what i can gather is if u arrive mid-week they find acommodation for u until the trip starts on the monday - i think??!!

Hey! Yeah i fly from heathrow on the 5th, its a 10pm flight which is pretty good lands in Sydney at 8 am on the 7th. Check it out, its with singapore airlines. I would love a flight buddy as its such a long flight!

And basically thats what it is with Ultimate Oz, if you land mid week they still come get you from the airport. It is really just the few extra nights untill the trip on the monday. But i'm going to do the 10 day one, so then i have a while to get over the flight/jet lag and do a bit of exploring on my own :)

Hi Rachel,

Ya I cant believe theres so many of us heading out around the same time! I wanna go to Sydney first and then travel up the east coast to find work. I plan on applying for jobs before I go as it might be easier to get a job that way. No i don't think so had never heard of Oz Intro, think its an English company must look into it though. Do you know when you plan on going yet?

I plan on going out around September I think. I want to save a bit more money first and make better plans. Yeah Ozintro are just a company that you pay and they look after you for the first week and help you organise things. Although I've not worked out whether it is worth the extra money yet or not. Although someone did recommend STA travel to me today as they do something similar I think but not as expensive. When do you plan on heading out? Have you done any travelling before?

I am heading to Oz in September alone and am really nervous about going by myself as had originally planned on going with friends who have back out of going. I plan on heading to Sydney first and then either up the east coast or onto Perth. Is there anyone else going in September? Or can anyone give me some advise on going?

I'm going to australia by myself aswell, it sucks it looks like everyone is going beginning of sept. i was thinking of could the end of september/october 1st. and i will be doing the 7 day arrival pack with ultimate oz. :)

Hi everyone!
I'm heading out to oz first week of september hoping to spend month in Sydney, then travel east coast. Does anyone else have similar plans and be out there around the same time? I'm traveling alone so would love some company.
