Day 1: City Tour & Welcome Dinner

Arrive in the Land Downunder

Welcome to Sydney! Check in to your new home before meeting our awesome tour guides and the rest of your group. We’ll introduce you to the office crew, give you a quick overview of the week’s itinerary and hand out your SIM card.

Sydney City Tour

Time 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. During the walk 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’ll visit our favourite party bar for our Welcome Dinner (dinner & drink included). Have some food, a drink and chill with your new mates!

Day 2: Info & Sydney Harbour Cruise

Hear all about travelling & Working in Oz

After a good night’s sleep, join our comprehensive info session where we’ll cover everything you need to know about working and travelling around Australia. Our team are all experienced travellers that will be able to help you plan your year, and they have all started where you are now! We’ll support you with anything you need & answer any questions you may have.

Private Sydney Harbour Cruise

We then set sail on our very own UltimateOz Catamaran ‘Rockfish’ for a cruise around 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

It’s time to get out of the city and explore the Aussie countryside! 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 just 5-minutes walk to the beach!  (Dinner included)

Sandboarding, Mt Tomaree, Beach Bonfire

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

Get up close with dolphins

On our 3rd day at Basecamp we take a breathtaking 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 head to the beach for a swim and relax before heading back to Sydney. Check into your accommodation and spend the rest of the day at your leisure. (Breakfast included)


Day 6: Sydney Party Night

It’s time to party! Get dressed up for a fun night on the town! Meet the group at one of our favourite party bars in Sydney 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

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

Then What?

By the end of the first week, you’re well and truly part of the Ultimate Family! Fancy heading on an adventure up the East Coast, into the Outback or sticking around in Sydney for a while longer? The Ultimate travel crew is here to help with whatever you need!
