Hi everyone,
Thinking of booking a week-10 days with the Ultimate Oz arrival package but don't no what to do after the 7-10 days whether its worf going as im un sure if i want to stay to work after but can't think of a safer and easiyer way to see a few of the sites and get a taster of it as it seems like best idea, Also is there any 23+people thinking of doing the same? Bit worried if I am too old to be doing this now at 24?!
Thanks :)

before all, its never late to travel, whatever your age! Thats my opinion and I´m not much older then you.
about australia, as you can see here, there´s a lot of guys and girls doing the same in 2013, I´m one of them and I´m also doing the 'ultimate oz and after that, doing the oz experience.
Probably I´ll work in the middle of it but, from what I read were, after you get there, you meet a lot of people in the same situation.

Just go for it and enjoy

GO for it!

I was 30 and i did the Ultimate OZ tour, to be fair the people doing it are going to the same age as you.

There were so many different age range, we had people on my tour from 18 right upto 27 / 28 and me at 30!

The guys at the office are smashing and will help you all the way - Dave, Danny, Karin, Katie and Hollie.

Go for it!

Drop me a PM if you need any advice or ask any questions!

hey guys!
Thanks for your positive comments bout go 4 it!
Few people have said they think the Ultimate Oz is waste of money as you can most if it yourself well all of it for much much cheaper and i agree but find this way bit less scary different once ive met few people be nice to meet like minded people!!
I also been told i need to take bit more money with me as would have to wait a couple of weeks till got paid so all i can do is save save save and hopefully make this wish come true!!

To Jay when are you thinking of going?
And Foxy President lol did you stay in Oz for long??

I'm still here! :)

Arrived at the end of October, stopping at least a year and hopefully two!

I agree bring money make sure its lots! Cause Sydney is expensive. Don't expect to find a good job straight away it will need determination.

Depends as well what you want to do.

Re OZ you will always find friends just depends where you stop and how you interact with people.

When I arrived I only knew a few people from the ULTIMATE OZ through facebook. Now I know them all on my tour, a group of them went off to the north do Queensland some of us stopped here. My circumstances were different so i stopped in Sydney on my own in hostels because i had plans and accomodation already booked. The others are living and working near Coogee beach.

I made other friends at the same time in the hostels. So you will make friends but the OZ is a good way for an introduction.

I'l be around until beginning of January and in Sydney again from April onward's.

So i'l be around :)
