Hi! I land in Sydney on 9th Feb and start an induction week with Ultimate Oz on the 10th. I am so nervous!! :( I have no plans after that initial week. Is anyone heading out the same time? It would be great to chat with a few people before I leave. Getting really nervous now, feb is coming around quickly! I was thinking about doing my regional work as soon as possible , does anyone have the same idea? Would be great to hear from some people :)

Check out their Facebook page and do some posts there:

Come March with a load of new friends, you'll wonder why you were nervous.

Hi Gem,

It is defiantly coming around quick! I'm getting so nervous, I haven't done any travelling before so it's a bit daunting having no plans! I want to travel up the east coast too but have no idea where to begin with planning! Also want to fit in my regional work early on. Yeah I have facebook, should just be under my full name which is on my profile on here :) x

Hi Alice!

I land in Sydney 30th Jan and want to do regional work asap, looking for people to do it with too!

Would you be up for doing it as soon as you arrive or did you want to do some travelling first?

Hi Rhiannon,

I'm thinking about doing my regional work straight after my induction week with ultimate oz, around 17th/18th Feb to get it done and out the way so I know I can get my 2nd year visa. Don't know if that's too late in feb for you?? I have no idea where to begin to look for regional work tho!

Hey,

Do you have any idea as to where you might go for fruit picking? Are you looking to get a car? Tom

Hey Alice, no that's not too late for me.

I've found a few websites about the fruit picking and get updates about jobs but they are all for jobs to start ASAP so can't really plan it till I get there.

Tom- not planning on getting a car, can just travel to wherever the job is!

I was told it may help to have a car in case you get to a farm etc and it isn't very good so you can drive to another as they are usually in the middle of nowhere! Get told so many different things though so sure it will be fine. You going to do regional as soon as you get here?

Hey Rhiannon,

Yeah I had a look quickly at some websites too but they were all for regional work to start now so not much good. I'm pretty sure I wanna get the regional work done and out the way though, then I don't have to worry about it later on.

Are you doing an induction week anywhere or you just flying in on your own?
