Planning on spending a gap year or working holiday Down Under? That’s what Oz Insyte is there for. As well as easing you in to life in Australia and showing you some of our favourite spots in Sydney and beyond, this trip package (and our expert team) helps you find paid work, sorts out your accommodation, and helps you plan your onward travel in Australia. Over 9 days we’ll show you the very best that Sydney has to offer, beach BBQs and a Harbour Cruise included, then whizz you o! to Port Stephens for a couple of days of surfing, sand boarding and kangaroo spotting. Oh, and did we mention you’ll be doing all this with a knowledgeable Group Leader and an instant crew of new mates? We can’t think of a better way to kick o! your year of adventure! 

day 1 - arrive in sydney!

Touching down in sunny Sydney, we’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your centrally located hostel to settle in. You’ll then meet up with your travel crew and get excited for the adventures to come.

day 2 - sydney orientation & jet boating

Today we’ll get you orientated with one of our favourite cities in the world, Sydney, and help you get your Australian bank account sorted. We’ll then head down to the harbour where we’ll hop on board a jet boat cruise, undoubtedly one of the best ways to see Sydney’s most iconic sights including the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Tonight, it’s time to see what Sydney’s nightlife is all about!

day 3 - private sydney harbour cruise

You’ll have time to yourself today to explore Sydney, and we’ll also be on hand to provide you with all the travel information you could need to plan your adventures around Australia. This afternoon, we’ll then treat you to something super special - a private cruise around Sydney Harbour. (L)

day 4 - bondi beach & bbq

Today we visit the world famous Bondi Beach where you can take a swim or just relax and work on your tan. We’ll then do the famous Bondi to Coogee Coastal walk, snorkel in secluded bays, play some beach volleyball and enjoy an Aussie beach BBQ and a few cold beers! (L)

day 5 - sandboarding & port stephens

Today we’ll travel to Port Stephens, home of the largest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. But we’re not here to admire the view, we’re here to try our hand at sand boarding! We’ll then hike to the top of Port Stephens for beautiful views across the bay, then head to a brewery for a well deserved beer and wine tasting. Tonight, we’ll settle in to our traditional Aussie bush bungalow and swap stories over beers and a BBQ (L,D)

day 6 - learn to surf

Wake up the sun rising over the Aussie bush before jumping in 4WDs and cruising along a beautiful secluded beach to learn to surf with qualified surf instructors. Relax after an amazing day in the waves and spot some kangaroos, and if you’re lucky a koala before we make our way back to Sydney for a night out on the town. (B, L)

day 7 - onward travel plans

It’s a big life admin day today as we help you sort out your onward travel. We’ll answer any questions you have and help with any plans you need to make. Our friendly team are total pros and are full of
knowledge and advice, so we can help you and your new friends sort the trip of a lifetime.

Our team will help you make sure you’ve got everything sorted for living and working in Australia, and we’ll also get you signed up to our Oz Jobs program. Tonight, we’ll then be dressing sharp for a tasty farewell dinner. (D)

important info

arrival info

Oz Intro starts every Monday. It’s best to arrive on the actual start date as there’s no activities on day one so you’ll have plenty of time to check in, relax and meet your group. If you do arrive in Sydney before your start date we will still pick you up from the airport and will book you into the hostel from the day you arrive. You’ll just need to pay approx. £20 for any extra nights. Please ask your working holiday designer for more information.

after oz intro
