Hi everyone!
My name's Claire and I'm hoping to head out to Sydney early Jan 2013. I'm 18, travelling alone and was thinking of doing the Oz Intro week, but extremely scared! Is anyone else thinking of going around that time? Would love to meet someone before I go so that I'm not completely alone!

Hey Claire,

I'm 22 and going alone I think its the same with almost everyone on this thread (a few people from here are arranging to meet up but not sure when), I was heading to Aus for March but looking at my route in SE Asia it might be mid Jan unless I end up not wanting to leave somewhere...

I had the Ozinto brochure this week and it looks amazing but for the money thinking it might be alot less doing it myself but if I do the Ozinto or Ultimate Oz it means I dont have to think which makes it 10 times easier :) so havent decided yet

Have you got any plans or know how long your going for?

Hey Ryan,

Well I'm pretty set on doing the Oz Intro week, because I think its just such a great way to meet new people! And also this is the first time I've ever been out of Europe, so pushing out of my comfort zone and am a little scared about it!

Yes! January is the time to go! Haha, I'm hoping to stay in Australia for six months or so, starting in Sydney and finding a bit of work, and then travelling up the East Coast. Pretty set on seeing the Great Barrier Reef at some point too!

How about you? How long were you thinking of staying for? X

Hello All!

I'm a 26 year old Irish lad that will be heading to Oz around August/September time to travel and work. No flights booked yet but have my whv on its way.

I really like the Idea of meeting up as its a daunting move! Anyone thinking of heading over around that time get it touch and let me know your plans!

Yeah this will be my first time travelling and going alone to, was thinking of staying in Aus for atleast a year and if I really like il apply for my 2nd year.

I want to do the east coast but not sure which way yet, I was thinking of trying to get work in Port Douglas which is NorthEast and right next to Great Barrier Reef, its where alot of australians go for their holiday so theres alot of work there in peak season.

Let me know if you book anything :)
