Hey Cazza,

Im coming to Aus after travelling SE Asia around March/April time next year, no plans at the moment was thinking of just going with the flow, only thing I am planning is a WHV.

I looked at the Ozintro package and I wanted to do it but thinking about it for the money you can do everything yourself for alot cheaper and will probably meet even more people doing it that way so i'm thinking of not doing it anymore.

Still have no idea on where to go first and how much to save, how much are you aiming to take?

I received a information about the UltimateOz experience and i must say it looks really good but i do agree it would probably be cheaper doing it yourself.

I plan on heading out to oz march/april time. saving like crazy right now. plans are pretty much the same as cazza. I really wanna do the exciting stuff like diving etc but thinking of maybe getting a job on an orchard first to boost funds although i hear this is very hard work and after 80 or so days you can get your hands on a 2nd year visa!

I suppose you only really know what you are going to do nearer the time. leaving my job for it so i guess i really wanna spend a good 6 months at least out there.

i plan on heading out there with around 4600 aud spare cash just to be safe, how about everyone else ? :)
