Hi everyone,

Just looking for some tips and advice really! I am arriving in Sydney in the first week of March and am planning to stay at Wake Up for about 12 days before starting a tour up the east coast on the 19th. I want to see as much of Sydney as possible and hopefully meet some nice people to share these experiences with! I am keen to explore the Blue Mountains but was wondering whether it's best to book a pre planned hiking tour or whether just to visit for half a day?!

Any help/comments would be great! thank you! Rhiannon x

I'm planning on going to Oz in July so maybe we will cross paths at somepoint!
You should have a look at oz intro, they do a weeks accomodation, loads of day trips and help you out with stuff! They also do a trip to the blue mountains!

I've been living in Sydney since September. I've yet to get to the Blue Mountains unfortunately and im not an expert on the city by any means ha. But I have done a lot of touristy things around the city and I've been to the usual spots like Manly and Bondi. So if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I'll see if I can help :-)

Hey everyone,

Thanks so much for your responses! Ah amazing, when does ultimate Oz start Sophie? My g adventure tour starts on 19th march - think we'll be arriving in Cairns around 30th march for a trip
On the whitsundays. If we happen to be in and around the same places at the same time it'd be great to meet you! Hope you're all ready to go. X
