I think it's safe to say that most people don't really have a definitive plan to start off with. The whole idea of backpacking is to go with the flow and see where you end up!

It is a good idea however, to have your first week or few days sorted before you get there, so you can get settled, get over jet lag and establish the next course of action.

You'll hear people talk of things like OzIntro and UltimateOz. These are proper worth looking into. I myself have booked a 7 day package with Ultimate Oz for September and I really can't wait! It is a little pricey but it takes a lot of stress out of the first week, gets you set up for your travels, make loads of new friends and find a travel buddy or 2! and you get a weeks worth of accommodation and activities!

Hope this helps a bit
