CHECK OUT THE ITINERARY!
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.
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!
Tonight we visit our favourite party bar for our Welcome Dinner (dinner & drink included).
