Duration 7 Days
This trip is the ultimate way to start your gap year in Australia! Whether for a working holiday or just a trip around the country this is the perfect introduction to the Aussie way of life.


Pre-Departure Support

Flying across the globe is a daunting prospect. We’ll take the stress off you, answer any questions you might have and help you plan your trip Downunder.

It’s a group thing

You’re not alone! Meet your group and chat to other travellers arriving at the same time before the adventure begins.

Easy Arrival

When you arrive in Sydney the driver will be waiting for you and drive you direct to your new home WakeUp Hostel, voted the best backpacker hostel in Australia. Everything is pre-arranged so your check-in will be quick & easy.

Day 1: City Tour & Welcome Dinner

Arrive in the Land Downunder

Check in to your new home before meeting our legendary tour guides and the rest of your group. We’ll introduce you to the office crew, give you a brief overview on what’s going to happen for the week and hand out your SIM card.

Sydney City Tour

We then head out to explore the city. Have lunch in Darling Harbour, see the Sydney Harbour Bridge & the Opera House, take a trip down to the Botanical Gardens. At the same time, you’ll be getting to know your new mates in Australia and taking some awesome photos to make your mates back home jealous!

Welcome Dinner

Tonight we visit our favourite party bar for our Welcome Dinner (dinner & drink included).

Day 2: Info & Sydney Harbour Cruise

Hear all about travelling & Working in Oz

After a good night sleep, join our comprehensive info session where we’ll explain everything you need to know about working and travelling around Australia. Our team are all experienced travellers and have started where you are now. We’ll support you in anything you need & answer any questions you may have.

Private Sydney Harbour Cruise

We then jump on our very own UltimateOz Catamaran ‘Rockfish’ for a cruise on Sydney Harbour. Spend the day cruising, swimming and chilling on Sydney Harbour! Enjoy your first Aussie BBQ on deck (lunch included).

Day 3-5: Escape the City

Arrive at Basecamp

Today we head to UltimateOz Basecamp, famous for its stunning beaches, amazing sand dunes and abundance of Aussie wildlife including dolphins, whales, koalas, echidnas and possums. Our eco-cabin accommodation is 5-minutes walk to the beach and home to Josie, a tame kangaroo! (Dinner included)

Sandboarding, Mt Tomaree, Beach Bonfire

The next morning we jump in the 4WD and ride to the highest dunes to try sandboarding! Then we take a guided bush walk through National Park to our favourite lookout. Enjoy stunning scenery and breathtaking views and the chance to see koalas in the treetops and migrating whales (May – November). Tonight we enjoy a BBQ dinner and drinks around the campfire. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

Get up close with dolphins

On our 3rd day at Basecamp we take an amazing dolphin watching cruise and get up close to wild bottlenose dolphins. There’s also a chance to see turtles and whales. Relax on deck or ride in the boom net while dolphins swim underneath. Then we hit the beach for a swim before heading back to Sydney. Check into WakeUp and spend the rest of the day at your leisure. (Breakfast included)

Day 6: Sydney Party Night

Dance the night away

Get dressed up for a fun night on the town! Meet the group at one of our favourite party bars before starting our Sydney Pub Crawl. We visit some hot spots in the city – VIP express entry and a couple of free welcome drinks along the way!

Day 7: Beach Tour

Life is better at the beach

On your last day, we take a tour along Sydney’s cliff-top coastline from Coogee to Bondi and check out six beaches along the way. It’s the perfect way to unwind after an awesome first week in Sydney!
