I was looking at these OzIntro style packages online and have read the other threads on TP about them but can't find the info i'm looking for. I am leaving on a round the world trip in april and as such i cannot guarantee when i will arrive in Oz. Is anyone on here aware of any good,reputable companies that i can book these type of things with when i arrive in sydney or perhaps from NZ. Only seem to be able to book Ozintro and such from UK plus i have to give an arrival date. Have been advised i can change the start date subject to availability and charges but would prefer not to have to worry about contacting them in 6 or 7 months. Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks.

Being from UK, it won't be hard to get used to OZ so just arrive here and then try and do the travel yourself instead of spending loads of extra money on pre arranged tours. Any pre-arranged tours I have seen in Australia that go for more than one day, are not cheap at all so it's best just to get here and do it yourself. It's not like Australia is like India where the culture shock is enormous and you feel like you are on another planet because things are just so different and hard to get used to. You'll get off the plane and you'll feel pretty much like you are at home, I know I do anytime I have landed in London when I live in Australia. When you explore in to the outback and less touristy areas then it is a lot different to UK.
