Hey Everyone,

I'm planning on travelling solo to Aus, leaving the UK at the end of March 2014. I can't decide if I'm going to use a group like OzIntro or just go it alone. Has anyone used these groups/planning on using one? Is anyone else planning to head over at around the same time?

Hey Han,

I am flying to Sydney on 30th march (after being in south east asia for 4 months).,planning to work out there for a year. I am thinking of doing the work welcome pack from sta, working and travelling as i go.
Not sure whether to travel up or down the east coast when i get there.
what are you thinking of doing?

Hi guys

I'm heading to oz beginning of April (no date set yet) im looking at doing the ultimate oz Sydney package as it looks so much fun! Then I'm hoping to travel up the east cost on a whv. I'm travelling solo at the minute as well so it would be great to meet others heading out around the same time.

I'm thinking of travelling up the east coast, working as I go but I think I will just be going where ever I can get work!

I cant decide about oz intro/ ultimate oz but I think I will probably use one of these!

Yeah well I think there both good if you want to meet people and it looks like they help you out with anything once you get there.

Have you booked your flight yet?

I'm heading out at the end of January too and going solo up the east coast. I fly to Melbourne and have absolutely no idea how to try and balance working with travelling!

I've not booked anything yet! I really don't know what to do for the best :/

I am a bit concerned about balancing work and travelling too, as Aus is so expensive.

I know you have to have £3,000 in your bank account on arrival but I am hoping my budget for Asia will last me then I should be ok to travel straight away and work after. If not I will have to find work asap then go on to travel the East coast after.

I think doing the oz intro package is a good idea as they help you find work?

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, they also help you with bank accounts and tax codes etc. Im worrying about finding work but hopefully there will be plenty of opportunities as I'm not fussy what I do
