Of course the on going support for work and setting up the essentials for living here were also key and this package really prepared me for now and what will come.

    Myself and my friend Josh booked our Sydney to Cairns Greyhound Bus Ticket (April to July 18) through Sigi Smits in the Sydney office and she has so far been nothing but a great help! Sigi was very welcoming and informative when we initially booked our ticket, and has since booked us onto every bus we have taken without any issues or problems! The Greyhound Bus itself has also been perfect for us and i would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap and easy way to get up / down the East Coast!
    Ultimate Travel commented on this review
    Thanks for your kind words Tom. We have passed your feedback on to Sigi :) Great to hear you're loving Greyhound - we hope you had an amazing time on the East Coast! Let us know if you need any help planning more Australian adventures!

    Great way to get started in Australia. Going to base camp was such a unique experience you can't get any where else. WakeUp sets the standard for hostels. All around a great tour that was put together!

    I booked the start and fun program and it was a great experience. Everything was planned perfectly and it was a very nice and relaxed tour guide. I would totally recommend this to everyone who wants to have a nice first week in Australia with many other people.

    Hello users, I did ultimate oz on the week of September 7-14. All in all it was a good trip, my favourite part was riding the sand dunes at the Stockton Sand Dune Park! Ultimate Oz is great because they help you out with everything you need in Australia!

    I only booked my UltimateOz adventure a couple of weeks before I left (I recommend booking earlier than me) but the contact with Ultimate was great, they were really helpful with my (quite vague) questions. When everything was booked up I started the rest of my preparations and the Ultimate website, blog and e-mails really helped me with sorting out what I needed to do and what I had to take with me. When I arrived in Australia a bit delayed and got to UltimateOz HQ on the pre-arranged airport shuttle I immediately felt welcome and making friends turns out to be really easy when you travel alone, especially if you start with a group of people who are experiencing the same thing as you. The first things you do upon arrival is installing your simcard and going to the bank. It really is nice to not have any stress or trouble getting a simcard or opening a bank account because everything is already provided for (all you need to do is leave some information on the bank site when you're still at home but it's done in a couple of minutes). After arranging these gap-year-essentials, the fun part starts; the amazing activities! Without exaggeration, my week with UltimateOz was one of the best weeks I have ever had. I have had so many new experiences I never would have gotten without this tour, it was simply great. Before I left, I found a video on the Ultimate website and I really thought it was exaggerated, but when I experienced it myself, I thought back and realised every place I went to was as beautiful and magical as in that video. My tour guide was Anna Gault, and she made our week so good. She was always kind and helpful, making sure everyone was having the best time. She was really funny as well (there has been no place we went to without a laugh because of Anna's talks) and took a lot of pictures to make sure we would take home loads of memories. At the end of the week, she was no longer just the tour guide, she felt more like a friend. I'm sure I'll meet up with her and a lot of the other friends I've made in just one week again. If you're doubting about starting your gap year in Australia with UltimateOz or doubting coming to Australia at all, go for it. I came to Australia with little to no expectations, but I've already made so many friends here in just one week because of Ultimate, I cannot wait what the rest of my gap year will bring!

    Fantastic week where I've met really nice people and a wonderful group guide. During the week with Ultimate Oz I had a lot of fun and I made amazing activities. The Start&Fun package was the perfect start into my Work&Travel adventure, and I would recommend the organisation to all young people who want to travel to Australia. It was a great experience! Thank you Anna for this wonderful week.

Of course the on going support for work and setting up the essentials for living here were also key and this package really prepared me for now and what will come. (Just finished my week intro) Our tour guide Anna was so down to earth, she was having as much fun as us and you can tell it's not just a job for her- she genuinely wants you to have as much of a good time that she had in her first year. Even if you are after a "spontaneous trip" like me, don't assume you won't get this. In fact it assists you in it as they give you all the information for you to personalise it and make the most of it.
