Hi all,

My name's Joshua and im 18. Ive decided to travel instead of going to Uni, and am looking at flying to Australia in March/April time 2013 in order to have time to save up sufficient funds.

I was just wondering if anyone was thinking about going over at a similar time and what your plans are? And also if anyone has any info/experiences of doing OZintro that would be great too.

Thanks,
Joshua

Are you moving there permanently or just for the year to travel and work?

Hi Sam,

Actually Canberra is 3 hours SOUTH of Sydney, and it's the most boring city we have here, I'm not really sure why you would be moving there unless you have a job lined up with our government?
