Hi! Was wondering if anyone was going out to Sydney at the beginning of September? I'm flying from Manchester but going to China for 18 days beforehand with STA. Plan to be in Syd for 1st/2nd Sept. Unsure whether to do OzIntro? Is it worth it? If anyone has similar plans please let me know! Amy :)

Hello! I'm landing in aus on the 8th of September on a working holiday visa
I'm starting off in sydney and going to sort out my bank account/sim card/tax file number etc then go from there. Was going to do ozintro but decided to just go ahead and sort it all out myself as its easier and probably works out cheaper.
However I have heard its a great way to meet people and stuff!

hey I arrive in Sydney on the 10th of September, I was looking to go with 'getaustralia' similar to ozintro, but decided against it as works out so much cheaper doing it myself! I heard too its great way to meet people but I guess we'll all meet lots of people in hostels etc in similar situation doing it all on their own.
All the best :) Chelsea x
